I am experiencing many issues with my fresh installation of Ubuntu 14.04:
- I can't open Google Chrome from the sidebar.
- I can't search any applications in the dash.
- f.lux and Screencloud have stopped running on startup.
As far as I can recall I began experiencing these issues after setting up the Google App Engine SDK for PHP, but it's possible this is being caused by something else entirely.
google-chrome in the terminal returns:
[6119:6119:0511/161156:ERROR:process_singleton_linux.cc(903)] Failed to create socket directory. [6119:6119:0511/161156:ERROR:chrome_browser_main.cc(1198)] Failed to create a ProcessSingleton for your profile directory. This means that running multiple instances would start multiple browser processes rather than opening a new window in the existing process. Aborting now to avoid profile corruption.
Screencloud displays an alert box on startup saying
ScreenCloud is already running. Please close the running instance before starting a new one.
Lastly, there is an error icon in the system tray which has displayed a few different error messages:
I have researched each of these issues individually, tried every solution I could find, rebooted a hundred times, but nothing has changed. What can I do?
