  1. I’m sorry to tell you this but the installation instructions in your article don’t work.

    1. There is no Linux command called “Sudo”. It should be “sudo” with a lower case “s”. Linux commands are case sensitive.

    2. There is no command called “apt”. The command is “apt-get”.

    3. Even then, it still will not work unless you FIRSTLY add the repository to your “/etc/apt/sources-list”

    For people who were as confused by the mistakes in this article as I was, the correct way to install Chromium on Ubuntu can be found (in the form of a step-by-step guide) here:-

    I hope this helps someone. Best wishes.
