Installing Google Chrome in Slackware 12.1.0

The install was done using the following Debian package:
google-chrome-unstable_3.0.187.0-r18043_i386.deb

I'm not saying it won't work with other versions, but I just haven't tried.

Open the package and copy the folder "google" to "/opt" (or another directory if you wish).

Create the following symbolic links in /usr/lib:

libnspr4.so.0d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libnspr4.so
libnss3.so.1d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libnss3.so
libnssutil3.so.1d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libnssutil3.so
libplc4.so.0d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libplc4.so
libplds4.so.0d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libplds4.so
libsmime3.so.1d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libsmime3.so
libssl3.so.1d -> /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.8/libssl3.so

Alternatively Thunderbird or Seamonkey libraries can be used instead of Firefox; or you can always search your Linux for the location of the files.

Update (if needed) the following Slackware packages, in () the version I tried successfully:

pango (1.22.4)
cairo (1.8.6)
pixman (0.15.10)

Well, now you can just execute /opt/google/chrome/chrome and start using Google Chrome!

More specifics on how to crack the .deb would have been helpful. My copies of cairo, pango and pixman exceed your listed requirements. Chrome crashes on most of the pages I've tried, but at least it does run.
