when I tried opening google-chrome in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, I received the following error:
[1976:2032:299999600:ERROR:shared_memory_posix.cc(171)] Creating shared memory in /dev/shm/.com.google.Chrome.0ApmLo failed: No such file or directory [1976:2032:299999742:ERROR:shared_memory_posix.cc(174)] Unable to access(W_OK|X_OK) /dev/shm: No such file or directory [1976:2032:299999773:FATAL:shared_memory_posix.cc(176)] This is frequently caused by incorrect permissions on /dev/shm. Try 'sudo chmod 1777 /dev/shm' to fix.
However, when I tried
sudo chmod 1777 /dev/shm
, I discovered that /dev/shm did not in fact exist. I don't know what happened, and how to fix this?
