A dependency change in last month’s release of Ubuntu 13.04 meant that anyone attempting to install Chrome using Google’s official installer was met with an error. The ‘libudev0’ package required by Chrome to run is no longer available from the Ubuntu repositories.
Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 or earlier were unaffected.
The good news is that, with yesterday’s release of Google Chrome 27, this roadblock has been solved. Google Chrome, with all its Pepper-Flash and PDF-plugin glory, installs without hitch on Ubuntu 13.04 and, for those already using it, 13.10.
