I believe for Google Chrome it is google-chrome.

Re: [SOLVED] How to figure out the execute commands?

Heres a couple ways to figure out the commands for most programs you install:

1. Go to /usr/share/applications, find the launcher for the program you want, then open it in a text editor (leafpad) and look for the execute line.

2. xfce4-appfinder can do the same thing but automatically. It also sorts programs by category.

I installed chrome from the ppa and for me it is chromium-browser, it may be different for the deb you installed it from though.

Re: [SOLVED] How to figure out the execute commands?

Iggykoopa, Google actually released an official beta, so razorboy5 actually installed Google Chrome, hence google-chrome. I'm still using Chromium, however, as it seems to be updated more frequently. The Google Chrome deb does add an entry to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ so that it can be updated with the package manager though.

Re: [SOLVED] How to figure out the execute commands?

Thanks for pointing that out trailpups. I've been avoiding the official builds because they have more tracking stuff activated from what I've read. I don't mind them tracking a little bit of info, but there are limits.

Re: [SOLVED] How to figure out the execute commands?

I'm not sure, but I think that when on your first run of Google Chrome a window pops up, as it does in Chromium, asking if you'd like to make the browser your default and if you'd like to import settings from Firefox, that it also has a checkbox allowing you to opt out of sending usage statistics.

*** Just checked, and it does ***

So that might be helpful.
