Google Chromium in BT4

This is a small guide to adding the Google browser Chromium to Back Track 4.

Note: Following this guide may break your system and no one will take responsibility for it but you.
OK the first thing you need to do is add the PPA's to your apt sources list.
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
root@dorkbox:~# nano /etc/apt/sources.list
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
Add the following to the list
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
# Chromium browser PPA
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
Save and exit.
Next get the key
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
root@dorkbox:~# apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys FBEF0D696DE1C72BA5A835FE5A9BF3BB4E5E17B5
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
Note the above should be one line.
Next update apt
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
root@dorkbox:~# apt-get update
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
Last apt-get the browser.
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
root@dorkbox:~# apt-get install chromium-browser
-------------------------CODE-----------------------------
Three other packages should get pulled as well.
chromium-browser chromium-browser-inspector chromium-codecs-ffmpeg
