Install Google Chrome on Linux 7.9 using terminal

There are several ways to do that, I found the simplest (I hope so) and want to share it with you:

0. Create repo file:

# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome
baseurl=https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

1. Enable repo ol7_optional_latest for vulkan dependency:

# yum-config-manager --enable ol7_optional_latest

2. Install google-chrome-stable package:

# yum install google-chrome-stable -y

3. Run:

$ google-chrome

Or in the background:

$ google-chrome &

The window will come up in VNC or X Window whichever you’ve configured before.
