How to Install and Run Google Chrome on Kali Linux – Part 1: Install


Hi there folks,

today’s post is about how to install Google Chrome on Kali Linux. I will divide this post in 2 Parts, Part 1 I will cover how to Install Google Chrome, Part 2 I will teach you how to run it, for each Part I will provide you 2 different flavors to perform it so that you can opt for your best option.

[Part 1: Google Chrome install]
I will provide you 2 options to install Google Chrome, I prefer Option 2 in a way that you are able to upgrade google-chrome in a much more easier way (apt-get upgrade), a web browser is a king-sized open door to threats from the internet, I recommend that you care about running the latest version of your web browser, anyway it’s your choice to be the postman or the postbox, if you know what I mean…


Option 1 – Download google-chrome package with WGET:
With WGET package you can retrieve http, https and ftp files, we’ll use it to download Google Chrome. You have 2 different packages, one for 32-bits systems and other for 64-bits, so make sure you install the appropriate package for your Kali OS version.

For 32-bit systems:
Open a terminal and run the following (single line command):

For 64-bit systems:
Open a terminal and run the following (single line command):

Option 2 – Add google-chrome Repository to Kali sources.list:
You can add Debian Official and Unofficial repositories to your Kali Linux so that you can download and install other packages than Kali’s official package list. Google Chrome is part of a Debian Unofficial package (see link below)  list and I use this method to install Google Chrome on my Kali Linux environment.

Debian Unofficial Repositories:

I will add Debian Official repository (not required but might be useful) and Google Chrome repository (from the above list) to my Kali Linux sources.list.

cd /etc/apt/
sudo nano sources.list

#Debian repository
deb stable main

##Google Chrome repository
deb stable main

Press [CONTROL]+[X] keys and save the file with the original filename.

Now update the packages list:

apt-get update

Sometimes when you modify the sources.list (Step 2) to add a non-default repository and you update your Sources list (step 2) the package manager may return the error message “NO_PUBKEY ABCEDF123456789” (example) telling you that it can’t find the public key.

To solve this issue you need to import the public key to the GNU Private Guard with Debian Public Key Server and then to APT.


Following the update with “apg-get update” with the error message NO_PUBKEY, as shown in the above picture the Public Key A040830F7FAC5991 is missing. Solets import the Public Key to Gnu Private Guard with Debian Public Key Server:

gpg –keyserver –recv A040830F7FAC5991

Following this you will receive an export Key from GNU Private Guard that you need to use for APT.


As seen in the above picture let’s add the GNU Private Guard export key ‘7FAC5991’ to APT. 

gpg –export –armor 89ABCDEF | sudo apt-key add –

Now that we have the GNU Private Guard key we can add it to APT key ring from Google Linux Repository (this is a single line command).


wget -q -O – | sudo apt-key add –

Now you can install Google Chorme package without any issues and from now on you can easily upgrade your Google Chrome package (apt-get upgrade).

apt-get install google-chrome-stable


This installation process completes the Part 1 of How to Install and Run Google Chrome on Kali Linux. Follow Part 2 for How to Run Google Chrome.
