  1. Open up the terminal and clone the latest Google Chrome AUR repository:

  2. 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/
    $ makepkg -s
    
    When finished the result should be a newly built Google Chrome package ready for the installation:
