Install Google Chrome slackware

First install the dependencies with gslapt or slapt-get -i
GConf ORBit2 google-chrome-pam-solibs
 Then go to the Google Chrome site:
http://www.google.com/chrome
Click the download button, and select either:
32 bit .deb (for Debian/Ubuntu)or 64 bit .deb (for Debian/Ubuntu)
Download the SlackBuild from here and execute it as root

Now do again as root: # upgradepkg --install-new google-chrome-25.0.1364.97-x86_64-1.txz
