How to ignore dependency for apt-get update

do you have a handy answer/link to this issue with google-chrome in TDE?

I installed it forcing ignore dependency and it works just fine without this

# apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 google-chrome-stable : Depends: libappindicator1 but it is not installed

Description-en: allow applications to export a menu into the panel
 A library to allow applications to export a menu into the panel.
 Based on KSNI it also works in KDE and will fallback to generic Systray
 support if none of those are available.

I think there should be a way to remove the dependency from the package, I
know how to do it before installation, but is there (I'm sure there is) a
way to do it after the installation.

Thanks in advance
