Install fine. Works fine. Next day the logo and apps menu entry is gone. Doesn't seem to matter what I do. On installation, GDebi refused to install the package, and crashed instead, so I used dpkg -i.
As for the logo and apps menu entry, I suppose I'll just have to glue it in place. Sorry Firefox.
I install the latest version with dpkg, I use it for a while, it goes into the Internet tab fine. Then I shut down, and the next time I start up it's missing. The program runs fine from a terminal as google-chrome
So, my question is, where are the details of this stuff stored? Is it a single text file in /usr? Is it a bunch of stuff that's hard to edit by hand? And where is the logo likely to reside?
I know there's probably a GUI way to do this, but it will be more satisfying, and possibly less error-prone, if I simply override whatever's causing Ubuntu/GNOME to lose the icon and applications menu entry.
