I tried going to the Chrome site, downloading the RPM and installing. It now shows up in the "activities" list but will not start up?

If I go to the "software" app and look at "installed", Chrome doesn't appear in the listing?

Open a terminal, type "google-chrome" to start Chrome and if it doesn't show up give us the terminal output so we have something as a base for diagnostics.

Perhaps this is due to missing in Fedora 21 (happened to me while installing brackets). I found it along with atom and copied it to /usr/lib64/

If I recall correctly, the RPM is only the repo definition. Once you've installed that you can then run sudo yum install google-chrome
