How to Fix Dependency Issues and Install Google Chrome on Ubuntu 12.10 / 13.04

In this article I will show you how to install Google Chrome on Ubuntu 13.04.
If you try to install Chrome on the latest Ubuntu Distro, you will get an dependency problem like this “google-chrome-stable depends on libudev0 (>= 147)”.
This is how you fix the dependency error and successfully install Google Chrome:

Step 1. Download and install the libudev0 library:

for 32 bit systems:

$ wget -c www.mirrorservice.org/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu//pool/main/u/udev/libudev0_175-0ubuntu13_i386.deb

for 64 bit systems:

$ wget -c www.mirrorservice.org/sites/archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu//pool/main/u/udev/libudev0_175-0ubuntu13_amd64.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i libudev0*.deb

Next, download Google Chrome from the official site and install the deb file with dpkg:
$ sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/google-chrome*.deb

Fix the other dependencies with sudo apt-get -f install and you are done:
$ sudo apt-get -f install

This is everything. Enjoy.
