Ubuntu – I am unable to install Google chrome via Ubuntu software centre

11.10google-chrome

i downloaded a stable version of Google Chrome. A .deb file got downloaded (i386). When I double click on it, Ubuntu software centre opens up and tries to install. But everytime an error pops up-

Internal Error .The file (/path to chrome) cannot be opened.

I have tried many methods but this just won't go. I don't think that the file is corrupted because this is the third time I have downloaded it.

Thanks in advance :)

You are getting this error because a package the Google Chrome depends on to run is not installed. Run sudo apt-get install -f to fix this. You should then be able to run Google Chrome.
