I am new to Slackware and most Linux distributions. I have properly installed the Chrome package, yet like most other packages, I do not think it created a binary for me to run; or at least I don't know where the package put it. I have found numerous tutorials online about how to install chrome from Slackware, but not a single one tells you how to run it after it is installed. Help would be much appreciated and I can provide any other information for solving this problem if necessary.

  1. How did you installed it?
  2. How are you launching it?
  3. What whereis google-chrome says?

If I were you I'd go to SlackBuilds, get the google chrome slackbuild, built it and installed package from /tmp/

If you use the build script from, and install it afterwards, a menu item is automatically added to the menu in KDE under Internet.

BTW, if you don't use it, get and install sbopkg to automatically build and install packages on Slackware.

I am using fluxbox as my de and nothing was added to to my internet selections. I did try installing it from slackbuilds as well. I got both the source and the slack build neither seemed to work. – NSNolan Feb 28 '12 at 23:15
