Most shortcuts in other systems also apply: Ctrl + TAB = next tab Ctrl + Shift + TAB = previous tab Ctrl + T = new tab Ctrl + W = close tab Ctrl + Shift + T = reopen last closed tab

In addition to the answers already given: Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn should also work to switch tabs forth and back.

Google Drive is a web application. Web applications are websites or webpages that can be accessed online and run as applications by themselves.

I suggest upgrading your graphical stack. Run in terminal sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-trusty libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-trusty libgl1-mesa-glx-lts-trusty:i386 sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all-lts-trusty This will upgrade Intel driver too and your system should be 12.04.5.

Had the same issue as the original poster. Here's what I did: Copy-pasted my google-chrome directory in /home/[username]/.config/google-chrome, just in case. Removed Google Chrome stable via Synaptic. Downloaded the previous version of Google Chrome from http://mirror.pcbeta.com/google/chrome/deb/pool/main/g/google-chrome-stable/ and installed via Ubuntu ...

Right-click on the lower right corner on any YouTube video, click About the HTML5 player and on the next screen tick the check box so your screen looks like below: Then you're not using any flash. Just HTML5. I uninstalled Flash a while ago and haven't looked back.

Firstly, I am assuming that the motivation of your question is to install packages, so correct me if I'm wrong. To run commands a root, you can either execute the commands as the root user, or you can append sudo to the beginning of the command. For most applications, using sudo is safer that being root because, among other things, it will force you to ...

I had this issue too. I fixed it by going into the Keyboard Shortcuts menu (Tools -> Extensions -> Keyboard Shortcuts (scroll to bottom)), selecting each Shortcut box, and trying to press (on Mac) Command + Shift + Alt + 5 + 6 + 7 + H + F5 ..... You get the idea. This should work on any other OS too. Try using a bunch of modifier keys and smacking the ...

If you still don't get any results, check if hardware-acceleration is enabled in Chromium settings, Google tends to disable this setting by default since version 43. In this case that was the problem for me after I updated GPU drivers, overrode the GPU blacklist, and so and so.

Simple answer: That's unlikely going to happen in the near future. (~10 years) More elaborate answer: You're asking for "Simply an environment like Wine" or to quote A.H. Weiler: "Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself …" What you're asking for is not impossible but a nicely coloured square with lots of even more nicely ...

SOLVED: During the upgrade apparently the X Server configuration (X.Org) was changed to the nouveau driver. Just change it to proprietary controller and Google Chrome stopped giving problems ... Thank you all for your responses. Regards.

How to find and clean such malware in ubuntu ? It could be crapware and not malware (ie. you somewhere agreed on it being started). The 2 generic places to check on this if it only happens in 1 browser: Check extensions; Check settings, the values set at "on startup"; If it is cross browser check with ps -ef | grep $USER | more if you can spot ...

I posted a patch to LKML to work around this bug and was told that the issue had been identified as a libdrm (not Chrome) bug. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=89842#c19 This issue is related to libdrm 2.40.6 only and from the link above there are other applications not, just Chrome that can encounter this same error with nouveau. It is ...

It is a wrong way to manually remove any files or folders installed by dpkg. The solution is to re-install google-chrome via a deb package. Download deb file from google.com, then install it using sudo dpkg -i <file_name> then remove it sudo apt-get purge google-chrome*

According to the Chromium projects site it's where the users data directory is. So beyond the configuration it will contain the History, bookmarks, cookies, extensions etc. To minimise the disk usage, you can uninstall extensions you no longer use and get Chrome to clear it's cache/history.
