    Default Linux Automatic Update

    Just wondering why my Chrome didn't update to the latest version (3.0.187.0) like it should have. Supposedly it was added to the repository but I was still on the old version. apt-get upgrade didn't find any updates either. I was forced to manually install the new version.

    Just me?

    I intend to install Ubuntu; that is until I learn the disk system first; otherwise I run it from the CD Rom

    **Update**

    I installed hoohoodilly (jk, chromium :P) in Linux and I had to manually add the repository in for updating. While poking around I noticed there was no repository entry for regular Chrome. For anyone who wants Chrome to update automatically in Linux, here ya go.

    **I can only guarantee these instructions for Ubuntu. Although they should prove straight-forward enough to adapt to other flavors.

    ALT+F2 gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list (or just open up /etc/apt/sources.list)

    Add the following 2 lines to the bottom of the file:

    deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/] stable main
    deb-src http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable main


    Save and close. Now Chrome will update automatically (although slowly). You can also initiate an upgrade via your regular upgrade method.

    I got a Chrome entry in my apt-get when I installed Chrome..maybe it's cause you installed it earlier than I did and it didn't have that feature yet?

    It's possible. I've been swamped at work so I haven't been on much at all lately...and haven't fired up my VMs in ages.
