Fix Google Chrome install issues in Xubuntu/Ubuntu 13.04

I did a clean install of xubuntu and noticed that chrome has a dependancy that isn't int repos. This isn't good for me, as I use chrome as my main browser to maintain consistency across machines with bookmarks, open windows (using TabCloud) and also using various extensions I love (HELLO Feedly  & Evernote!) Here is how to fix it after a clean install. (didn't affect me upgrading from 12.10 to 13.04 beta because I already had it)

Note: I just did a fresh install of xubuntu 13.04 and I also had to install libgconf2-4

sudo apt-get install libgconf2-4

32bit installs:
wget -P /tmp
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/libudev0_175-0ubuntu19_i386.deb
rm /tmp//libudev0_175-0ubuntu19_i386.deb

64bit installs:
wget -P /tmp
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/libudev0_175-0ubuntu13_amd64.deb
rm /tmp/libudev0_175-0ubuntu13_amd64.deb

Update: just installed Lubuntu on another laptop, follow the above directions, but also

sudo apt-get install libgconf2-4
