Build an AUR package. First navigate to a newly created google-chrome directory. Then execute the makepkg command to build a Google Chrome AUR package:

$ cd google-chrome/

Using the pacman command install Google Chrome package. Replace the package name suffix with the Google Chrome version you have compiled previously:

$ sudo pacman -U --noconfirm google-chrome-70.0.3538.77-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

The Google Chrome browser installation is now complete. Use the start menu and search for Chrome browser to launch it or simply start it from the command line:
