I did an ubuntu upgrade this morning and when I reboot the machine, chromium-browser will not run. I purged it with sudo apt-get purge chromium-browser and reinstalled it with sudo apt-get install chromium-browser.
When I try to run it from a terminal I get a message like: ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment. [22032:22032:1214/132224.411454:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(364)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.
The command hangs and I have to ctrl-c to get the shell back. No chromium processes are running when it is done.
If while the command is hung I get and I check for processes I see 5
1) --enable-pinc 2) --type=zygote 1) --type=gpu-process -- field-trial-handle=somelongnumber --gpu-preference=KAA... 1) --type=-broker
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Edit: I decided on a whim to run sudo chromium-browser, got an error message about not using the option --no-sandbox. I ran with sudo chromium-browser --no-sandbox and it seemed to work, I got a dialog that said "Profile error occured" Your preferences could not be read?
I then pinned the browser to the Launcher and it runs without sudo but I always get the "Profile error occured " dialog. It won't save preferences, and some features are unavailable.
