Exactly after I do the regular extraction of the archive, the file I get is: chromium-browser-stable-87.04280.67-1. I see that the .deb extension is missing but I tried in any case to give the command: sudo dpkg -i chromium-browser-stable-87.04280.67-1 and he gives me an error with the words: error: the chromium archive -browser-stable-87.04280.67-1 is not a normal file. I also tried to give the classic sudo apt-get install chromium-browser-stable-87.04280.67-1 but again nothing. What do you think am I wrong and what command exactly does it take to install this chromium package on Debian? I think that with this command I do, it doesn't work because it wants .deb extensions and I don't have it on this archive so I think it takes another command ...

There is _no_ debian package. The tar.xz is an archive of google binary. You can extract the content then run `./chrome` to start the app.

Hi TLE, I ran the command you told me and I started it also on Ubuntu. But my question now arises spontaneously, that is, how do I get the executable file with icon to open like any other installed application? Currently I am forced to always open the shell and give the command you told me to use it, but I would like it to be present already ready like all the other applications ... How should you do it? Thank you

You can create a launcher in your local (~/.local/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop) or global (/usr/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop) with following content of https://gist.github.com/runlevel5/633e3cbb6c50a78ae3c29ebc9a3db7a8

do you mean that I have to go to that path that you wrote me and create the chromium-browser.desktop directory and insert a text file with that link inside it?
