Installing the Google debian / ubuntu repository (chrome / picasa)

I have found it difficult to find the line what exactly the line is that I need add to my /etc/apt/sources.list ... I finally found it on the Google site here.

But to spell it out:

# Google software repository
deb stable non-free main

If you are using the GUI, you can simply go to

Software Sources > Other Software > Add

and add the repositories this way. This should then also automatically provoke an update of the software sources…

There might get a warning saying that the package is unsigned. I haven’t tried, but from what I can see, there is a link on the Google page.
