Following are the step by step commands for making sure the right way in which you are preceding for making automation scripts for web browsers with selenium.
Selenium automates browsers. That’s it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
Selenium has the support of some of the largest browser vendors who have taken (or are taking) steps to make Selenium a native part of their browser. It is also the core technology in countless other browser automation tools, APIs and frameworks.
Make sure you have latest browser bundle. I prefer chrome.
Step 1: Download and install Google chrome for your Linux distribution.
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i --force-depends google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
Step 2: For selenium to work you should have chrome driver. Make sure you download latest driver and put it in following directories after uncompressing.
LATEST=$(wget -q -O - http://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/LATEST_RELEASE) wget http://chromedriver.storage.googleapis.com/$LATEST/chromedriver_linux64.zip
3: Create symlinks
unzip chromedriver_linux64.zip sudo ln -s $PWD/chromedriver /usr/local/bin/chromedriver
4: Install Selenium with pip
apt-get install python-pip pip install selenium
5: Sample Python program . for reference visit http://www.seleniumhq.org/docs/03_webdriver.jsp
$ python Python 2.7.6 (default, Mar 22 2014, 22:59:56) [GCC 4.8.2] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> from selenium import webdriver >>> d = webdriver.Chrome() >>> d.get("http://www.google.com/") >>> d.title u'Google'
