Packages are tested upstream by Debian/Ubuntu - Mint certainly haven't tested every single package in the repos to see if they work well with Mint, greatly understaffed for that.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

If this is still an issue, I wrote a post about the same issue, and how I resolved it:

The previous comment by phlux provided the answer for me. I'm using a fresh copy/update of LMDE & Cinnamon. The problem was going to Google.com website, and manually downloading/installing the AMD64 .deb wouldn't put a shortcut in the main Cinnamon menu. The browser would work and could be called via terminal... but that is annoying.

Using phlux's suggestion, I removed my previous install, and added the repository via:

Code: Select all
sudo apt sources;
sudo apt-get update;
# I saw this error after running apt-get update, by the way, although it didn't stop anything from being installed:
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable/main amd64 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/dl.google.com_linux_chrome_deb_dists_stable_main_binary-amd64_Packages)
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable/main i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/dl.google.com_linux_chrome_deb_dists_stable_main_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

# then I was able to install one of three Chrome variations, but ONLY one can be installed at the same time. 
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable;
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-unstable;
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-beta;
# I went with beta ...  I like having Chrome Canary on my Windows 7 installation...


I also installed Chromium via: sudo apt-get install chromium; Why both? It's nice sometimes to have two Chromes, each with its own saved cookie environment; eg work and personal.
