Where to download Chrome 32bit since it has been discontinued by Google?

  • Google has discontinued the 32bit Version of Chrome so on a 32bit Debian machine it's not possible anymore to update the APT repository:

    W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/dists/stable/Release  Unable to find expected entry 'main/binary-i386/Packages' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

    Also has the .deb file removed from Google servers as it seems.

    Is there any alternative .deb download of the last release (46?) available somewhere?

    Reason: For an automated Debian build system (debootstrap-based) I urgently need a way to install Google Chrome 32bit v46 (or similar). Switching to another browser (including Chromium) is not a quick enough option for me at the moment..

    The last one I'm aware of was `google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb`

    While it's not a full answer - if you google for the above filename, you'll find it on plenty of mirrors where it's not been deleted yet. This is a time sensitive question however, so a bit unusual for StackExchange.

    The exact filename you provided was indeed all I needed. Thanks

    How can I verify the authenticity of the package. Any way to find a Release file?

    can you just install chromium and create a chrome link that points to it?

  • Download google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb here http://bbgentoo.ilb.ru/distfiles/

    this are great builds, thanks for sharing

    ArchLinux also references the latest official Google Chrome 32bits version with checksums at: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=chromium-widevine.

  • So your question is kind of time sensitive (unless someone starts offering unofficial 32bit builds of Chrome, if that's even possible). I'll try and provide a slightly more generic answer to the question, "the package I want is no longer available, what can I do?"

    One solution, is that if you have a machine which recently downloaded the .deb, it may still be present in /var/cache/apt/archives.

    For example,

    trinity:/usr# ls -l /var/cache/apt/archives/google*
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47451856 Feb  3 22:00 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.103-1_i386.deb
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47625502 Feb  9 18:40 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.109-1_i386.deb
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47539368 Feb 18 20:22 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.116-1_i386.deb
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47583326 Jan 20 22:41 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.82-1_i386.deb
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 47294044 Jan 27 20:58 /var/cache/apt/archives/google-chrome-stable_48.0.2564.97-1_i386.deb

    If you want to use it on a small number of machines, you could just copy the .deb file and install it manually using dkpg.

    However, if you want to install it on many machines, or use it for builds, then one option is to build your own local Debian repository for it.

  • You don't need to use Chrome application. When you have a debian mirror such as:

    deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free

    You can install Chrome as chromium, Chrome forked from chromium project. You can do :

    apt-get install chromium

    Right, but they aren't exactly the same application

    It's better because doesn't has backdoor

    @PersianGulf True, but it also lacks proprietary things like Flash, etc. But maybe those can be installed easily?

    chromium doesn't include widevine.

  • You can download and install the alternative of the Google Chrome for the 32 bit: Chromium Web Browser !
