I have issue. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my machine (I don't want any Unity like, or another dist, because I like Gnome2).

I tried to install Google Chrome, like this:

E: Broken packages

I see older versions libs, and in repo missing new versions.

I tried to add repo for Ubuntu 11.04, 11.10 and others, but I cant resolve the address of the repo.

Also I tried to install this packages manually, but every package has many related dependencies.

Sorry about potato. =)

This isn't on topic of your question, thought you may be interested in gnome2 alternatives (because I have had the same isse). Now there are good options that behave similarly, but using on GTK3 (gnome2 is stuck on gtk2, i.e. no updates or fixes coming). MATE is a DE forked from Gnome2 but has the same issue. Take a look at "Cinnamon", it has an option to have the dual panels like Gnome2, but has GTK3+, current support, and doesn't require any specific distro. I have Linux Mint 15 with it on it, works well (and uses apt, like you are probably used to). [/off-topic comment] – nerdwaller Jun 24 '13 at 0:31

I know this isn't exactly what you want, but you may have better luck with Chromium (which is in the 10.04 apt-get package libraries:

 sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
