I followed these steps to install Google Chrome (Chromium) on Ubuntu without using the terminal command window:

(This is also an example of finding and installing any software if you know the path for the package repositories)

Select Synaptic Package Manager:


Select Settings> Packages:

Go to "Other Software" tab:


Add these lines one by one:
deb karmic main
deb-src karmic main



Press on Reload after adding the repositories:

Type chromium in search box and then select chromium-browser:

Press on Apply:


Enjoy your newly installed software:
