Two days ago, Update Manager said there were several pending updates. Which I didn't check (my bad) and just went for it. Left it updating all night. Next day after rebooting, Gnome Desktop wouldn't show wallpapers nor icons.

This helped me with THAT issue: Problem after update: blue screen with only the mouse cursor

But then I started using Chrome, and it just hangs/freezes after a while. Have reinstalled it several times (remove, purge, delete ./config files, etc) Also, tried Chromium with the same result!

My best guess, it's a problem with ATI video driver.

$ lspci | grep VGA
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200/1100]

Which could be not working properly with the current (updated) kernel.

$ uname -a Linux smarthost 3.8.0-37-generic #53~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Feb 19 21:37:54 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

But I've tried login with latter Kernel from GRUB, with same result. So I think maybe the update, also updated the driver (or something similar).

My motherboard is Intel D102GGC2 with ATI Radeon Xpress 200 video. So I downloaded proper driver for it at: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop/legacy?product=Legacy1&os=Linux%20x86_64

But couldn't install it, because of this:

ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager

Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version default:v2:x86_64:lib32::none:3.8.0-37-generic; make sure that the version is being correctly set by --iscurrentdistro

Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.ejUbLW

So I'm stuck using Firefox which is terrible slow! Any ideas anybody? Suggestions are welcome!

--- EDIT ---

When running Chrome from command line (terminal) and browsing nothing more than Google's homepage, I get this error in less than 5 minutes:

$ /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable %U --disable-gpu [18793:18793:0324/110657:ERROR:profile_sync_service.cc(1311)] History Delete Directives datatype error was encountered: Delete directives not supported with encryption. Gkr-Message: secret service operation failed: Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus) [18793:18817:0324/111221:ERROR:native_backend_gnome_x.cc(475)] Keyring find failed: Error al comunicarse con gnome-keyring-daemon Killed

On @saiarcot895's clue about using Google Sync... I opened Chrome once again from command line and tried to unsync my account. And as soon as I clic on the button to unlink my account, I get this other error:

$ /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable %U --disable-gpu [21573:21573:0324/140022:ERROR:profile_sync_service.cc(1311)] History Delete Directives datatype error was encountered: Delete directives not supported with encryption. [21573:21615:0324/140023:ERROR:download.cc(356)] PostClientToServerMessage() failed during GetUpdates Killed

Any ideas?

I have the same thing but with a nvidia g-card. So that implies it has nothing to do with the ati driver. –  Martin Mar 22 at 14:55
    
What is the output if you run Chromium/Google Chrome in Terminal? Also, try the --disable-gpu flag to confirm that it is a problem with the GPU/GPU drivers. –  saiarcot895 Mar 22 at 15:49
    
Thanks for the reply @saiarcot895. Following your advice and while having just www.google.com opened (not browsing)... after 5 minutes, I got this : $ /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable %U --disable-gpu [18793:18793:0324/110657:ERROR:profile_sync_service.cc(1311)] History Delete Directives datatype error was encountered: Delete directives not supported with encryption.

Can you edit your main question and paste the output there (to make sure nothing was cut out)? Also, are you using the sync feature? –  saiarcot895 Mar 24 at 17:39
    
Done @saiarcot895. Edited. Thanks for your time and patience. –  LCKIM Mar 24 at 20:33
