Install Chromedriver on Linux

Option 1: Download from the official page (preferred)

  1. Visit https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/chromedriver/downloads
  2. Download and extract (e.g. to ~/bin/ or /usr/local/share/)
  3. Remember to sudo chmod +x chromedriver

Chromedriver must be available in your path. You can add ~/bin to your path like this:

Copy
echo "export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin" >> $HOME/.bash_profile

Option 2: Use apt source

Install via apt install chromium-chromedriver

The issue with this method is that after a chrome update, the chromedriver package sometimes lags behind and is not compatible.

Option 3: Install via npm

There's a handy npm package.

Copy
sudo npm -g install chromedriver ln -sf /usr/lib/node_modules/chromedriver/lib/chromedriver/chromedriver ~/bin/chromedriver
