Hi, can anyone guide me on how to solve this broken google chrome icon please?

2

In the terminal navigate to /usr/share/applications

sudo scratch-text-editor google-chrome.desktop

scroll about halfway down to just above the [Desktop Action NewWindow] section

look for the Icon entry, it should look like this...

Icon=google-chrome

If not, change it to that.

After following the steps, the icon on the launcher may not update automatically. So, just remove the icon from the launcher first and then re-store icon on the dock after following the steps in this answer.

Just do sudo apt -f install after this. dpkg -i or dpkg --install doesn't install dependencies automatically.
