I followed a process which worked for me.
I am using Redhat 7.4, and I've been through a lot to uninstall and install chrome and firefox, got partially successful with chrome and this is what I tried.
In the Linux terminal
Go to the root by typing
then (ctrl+f) and search for the keywords "google" or " chrome" or "mozilla" or "firefox" to check whether they are present or not and if they are available, then uninstall (remove) them by the following command (If you want to remove them)
yum remove [Package Name]
this removes the application
Then install chrome by the following process
type this in terminal
then a package gets downloaded in your current working directory
Then type the following command - this installs the packages
yum -y install [Package You just Downloaded]
in this case it will be
yum -y install google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm
This installs google chrome and creates an icon under
Technically, by clicking this googlechrome icon- this should open the browser, but it doesn't open the browser for me, I dont know whats the problem and I appreciate any suggestion regarding this issue.
I open google chrome through terminal using this command
this opens the chrome browser.
