Lately I've been working on a couple Ubuntu open source projects, MAAS and Juju.  While I have been making good use of the Ubuntu server distribution (16.04 LTS), I hadn't installed the desktop until today.

When I tried to add the Google Chrome web browser, I found a little work was required to add the Google PPA and get the install to work.  There are three steps required:

First, as root, create an APT source list file with a 64-bit architecture predicate:

echo 'deb [arch=amd64] stable main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list

Second, add the Google PPA key:

wget -q -O - | apt-key add -

apt-get update

Third, install the stable chrome browser from Google's PPA:

apt-get install google-chrome-stable
