[solved] Offer current DEB files under fixed path
NotCompatible last edited by NotCompatible
It would be very handy to always make the latest version of the DEB file available under the same path as Google did before.
At Google, the path was called: https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb`
At Vivaldi, I only know this path: http://repo.vivaldi.com/stable/deb/pool/main/
So you can easily install the browser from Debian/Mint/Ubuntu via terminal.
With Google it was previously possible with this command:
wget -c https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb && sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb
Since Google seems to be the world champion in eliminating useful features, this has been abolished in the meantime.

Chrome's direct amd64 deb is not removed.
Why do you install deb files with dpkg? It doesn't handle the needed dependencies.
You can install now deb files with apt. It will also install all needed dependencies.
What I am using
url="https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb" && tmp="/tmp/setup.deb" && sudo wget $url -O $tmp && sudo apt -y install $tmp && sudo rm -f $tmp
ppa="/etc/apt/sources.list.d/vivaldi.list" && deb="http://repo.vivaldi.com/stable/deb/ stable main" && key="http://repo.vivaldi.com/stable/linux_signing_key.pub" && sudo rm -f $ppa && echo "deb $deb" | sudo tee $ppa && wget -q $key -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt -y install vivaldi-stable

Thanks, you helped me solve my problem.
I didn't know Google just changed the path.
Old path: https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/direct/
New path: https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/
I use dpkg because it is a front-ent for apt-get and has worked well in most cases so far.
