If Chromium is good enough for you, all you need is sudo dnf install chromium

I recommend using Chromium or Firefox instead. Both provide more privacy compared to Google Chrome. Firefox is technically more advanced, faster and less resource hungry.

Another option is install gnome-software,

$ sudo dnf install gnome-software

Then install the google-chrome third-party repository,

  • Open gnome-software
  • Open the application menu (Super+F10 on gnome desktop), since you are on fedora-kde-spin , click on the top left corner icon and select "Software Repositories".
  • On the pop-up windows enable "Third Party Repositories", then close the windows.
  • Open the application menu and select "Software Repositories" again.
  • Now enable "google-chrome" repository, close the windows.
  • Now click on the magnifying glass, then type chrome, if you have problems searching chrome close the app and reopen it.
  • Then install "Chrome browser".

By command line

Enable the third party repositories

$ sudo dnf install fedora-workstation-repositories

Then enable google-chrome (repo id) repository, remember the repo-id not the repo-name that is a tiny mistake in the previous link, but you can check the documentation, if you don't know the repo id run
$ dnf repolist disabled first.

$ sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled google-chrome

Then install google-chrome-stable (package name)

$ sudo dnf install goole-chrome-stable

Command line key installation for RPM

On an RPM-based system (Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva, RHEL, etc.), download the key and then use rpm to install it.

wget https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

sudo rpm --import linux_signing_key.pub

You can verify the key installation by running:

rpm -qi gpg-pubkey-7fac5991-*

To manually verify an RPM package, you can run the command:

rpm --checksig -v packagename.rpm

Taken from:

https://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/
