Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu

Run in terminal following commands:

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
sudo apt-get update

There are three versions of Google Chrome:

  • google-chrome-stable
  • google-chrome-beta
  • google-chrome-unstable

I prefer to use stable, so run in terminal:

sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable

Create shared folder on Ubuntu

Run in terminal following commands:

sudo apt-get install samba
sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.bak
sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

Add the following lines to smb.conf:

[PublicFolder]
path = /home/petrunko/PublicFolder
available = yes
read only = yes
browseable = yes
public = yes
writable = no

Don’t forget to change path.

Run in terminal following commands:

sudo restart smbd
sudo restart nmbd
testparm
