This quick tutorial is going to show you how to install Google Chrome 34.0 on Debian Wheezy 7.5. I am using 64 bit edition on this tutorial. Google Chrome is a free, simple and lightweight web browser for Linux. I prefer to use Google Chrome other than Mozilla Firefox.
To install Google Chrome on Debian Wheezy, simply follow these steps:
Open Terminal and login as root
Now execute this command
dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
In some cases you will get the following error
