    I've just installed Loki on a Chromebook using Crouton. Everything is working great, except for one issue.

    I can't get Chrome to install in the Elementary environment. I have downloaded the install file from Google and installed the GDebi Package Installer. When I try to run the Chrome install package with either the GDebi installer or Ubuntu Software Center, I get the following error:

    Dependency is not satisfiable: libfontconfig1 (>=2.9.0)

    I ran an update for this file with the following command:
    sudo apt=get install libfontconfig1

    The command results in the following:

    libfontconfig1 is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    (precise)asc@localhost:~$ sudo apt-get install libfontconfig
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    libfontconfig1 is already the newest version.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded
    .


    After running this command, the problem persists. The command results indicate that all is as it should be, but it still doesn't work. Can't figure out what to do next.

    I have installed Chromium so am getting along, but would really like to have Chrome installed. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    By the way, when I run the app=get command it returns the following:

    install: missing destination file operand after 'libfontconfig1'
    Try 'install --help' for more information

    I tried install --help, but nothing comes up...

    Nope, nothing. Still running and older version of Chromium. Not crippling me as most of my work I do in Chrome OS, just bounce over the Elementary now and again for the odd job that I can't do in Chrome (mostly graphics stuff where I want to use GIMP), but no, nothing.
