How to download Chrome?

I just downloaded wine then click on it and it does nothing. I want to watch Game of Thrones trought HBO GO (I'm not going to use the Amazon player) but none of the 3 broswers I installed work for that.

Chrome has a native linux client. So just install google-chrome from the AUR.

Are you referring to any of this results? Or do I need to do and extra step. First day on manjaro

You need to enable AUR.
Install yay:
sudo pacman -S yay

Then install Chrome:
yay -S google-chrome


I can't

[sl@sl-pc ~]$ yay -S google-chrome

Thanks sir! I found it

Tip: search the forum. Most things have been covered, e.g. you're not the first person to want to install Chrome:

I wanted to use wine, not just intall chrome because I didn't know Chrome was available on Linux. I search, for chrome and wine and didn't found anything clear

'google-chrome' not 'chrome' in aur with Yaourt enabled!

please don't recommend yaourt.

Please don't recommend yaourt as it has been removed from our repo. These other AUR helpers are better suggestions.

I installed Chrome from AUR as indicated, no issues. But today there was an update and it would'nt install. I had to rebuild the package but something crushed for the install didn't update. Finally I removed the old version and installed the new one. Had the same issue with virtualbox. (The only 2 packages i have installed from AUR). I'm a noob but something has changed and AUR packages don't update automathically as they should do. I solved the easy noob way remove/reinstall but any indication would be welcome.
Today it worked.
