Replacing Chromium with Google Chrome in Ubuntu

I had some issues with Flash when using Chromium under Ubuntu.
But you can use Chrome instead. The following was done in Kubuntu 11.10 x64.

First, setup the repository key:
vic@wic:~$ wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
[sudo] password for vic: 
Then add the repo itself:
vic@wic:~$ sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
Install the package:
vic@wic:~$ sudo apt-get update
Ign http://md.archive.ubuntu.com oneiric InRelease
vic@wic:~$ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-
google-chrome-beta      google-chrome-stable    google-chrome-unstable  
vic@wic:~$ sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable
Setting up google-chrome-stable (18.0.1025.162-r131933) ...
Copy your profile from Chromium to Chrome (after closing all instances of both):
vic@wic:~$ rm -rf .config/google-chrome/Default/
vic@wic:~$ cp -r .config/chromium/Default/ .config/google-chrome/
