The objective is to install Google Chrome web browser on Kali Linux. See an appendix for a possible issue troubleshooting.


Privileged access to your Kali Linux installation or Live system is required.




  • # - requires given linux commands to be executed with root privileges either directly as a root user or by use of sudo command
  • $ - requires given linux commands to be executed as a regular non-privileged user


Download Google Chrome

To start, use wget command to download a latest Google Chrome debian package:

# wget

Install Google Chrome

The easiest way to install google chrome on you Kali Linux is to by use of gdebi which will automatically download all depended packages.

# gdebi google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

Start Google Chrome

To start Google Chrome, open up a terminal and run google-chrome command:

$ google-chrome


Illegal Instruction

The Illegal Instruction error message appears when running the google-chrome command as privileged root user. Since by default Kali Linux's default user is root, we need to create a dummy non-privileged user eg. linuxconfig, and use this user to start Google Chrome browser:

# useradd -m -d /home/linuxconfig linuxconfig
# su linuxconfig -c google-chrome

Package libappindicator1 is not installed

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of google-chrome-stable:
google-chrome-stable depends on libappindicator1; however:
Package libappindicator1 is not installed.

To resolve Google Chrome's dependencies problems use gdebi to install Google Chrome's debian package. See above.

Start google chrome as regular user on Kali Linux
