Install Google Chrome on Fedora 19

Add the following to /etc/yum.repos.d/google-chrome.repo:

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome - 64-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

Pick a version, stable, beta or unstable and install with the following command:

## Install Google Chrome Stable version ##
yum install google-chrome-stable

Upgrading from Fedora 18 to 19

I know Fedora 19 is officially released tomorrow; but if you can’t wait to upgrade your machine to the latest release like me, here is the command to do it:

$ sudo fedup --network 19

One thing I noticed after the upgrade is that, the bottom status bar can’t be found when you hit the system key. The good news is it’s still there; you just need to hit system key + m to have it showed up.
