    Hi,

    When you installed it, an application link for it was not created in the menu? That is odd, how did you install it?

    I think Google installs it to /opt by default. Open a terminal and try this command to look for it:

    Code:
    find /opt -type f -executable -name '*chrome*'
    if it is found, you can try running it from the terminal, e.g.:
    Code:
    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome

    Or add launcher to taskbar

    ipernity: LXDE: How to Add a Launcher to Your Panel by David P.

    If talking autostart instead

    Autostart - LXDE.org

    For editing menu in LXDE

    I run LXDE in my AntiX core install on my Amrel Laptop. I run Debians Chromium in it though instead of Google Chrome.
