While trying to load the Chrome Web Store (I am using Chromium), I get to see the store for a split second before getting the "Aw, Snap!" page. Any suggestions?
I too am experiencing this, but on 14.04 LTS.
I've raised this with Chromium as a bug, as appears connected to the v38 upgrade of Chromium that appeared in the Ubuntu repos on 10th/11th November.
Maybe add your details to that bug report, to see where our configurations match.
(To comply with Chromium bug reporting requirements, you should also verify that it's not an issue with an existing extension, or corrupt profile data, by starting Chromium with a blank profile and seeing if the problem still persists)
UPDATE Appears fixed now in Version 40.0.2214.94 (I'm now on 14.10, but I think the same version is now in the official release for 14.04)
The Chromium bug is still active as there are other issues, but majority of causes seem cured.
I installed Google Chrome from their site (instead of Chromium 39.0.2171.65 ) and everything works fine. I am using Lubuntu 14.10.
I have been struggling with "Aw Snap!" messages from Chromium for months, since I updated from Lubuntu 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS (fresh install). It occurred to me in particular with some Youtube videos and with Google Maps.
I tried the following first:
- Playing with some advanced settings (Privacy)
- Uninstalling all extensions
- Erasing my old profile in ~/.config/google-chrome/ and creating a new one
nothing of the above worked.
So I proceeded removing completely the version of Chromium that is in the Canonical repository (v. 39.0.2171.65)
sudo apt-get remove --purge chromium-browser chromium-browser-l10n chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
and adding the Miller's repository, containing the last secure versions of Chromium
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:canonical-chromium-builds/stage
Finally, I updated the repository archives and re-installed chromium
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install chromium-browser chromium-browser-l10n chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
That installed in my Ubuntu box the latest safe version of Chromium, that is version 40.0.2214.93 for Trusty, by now.
This solved for me once and forever all the "Aw Snap!" issues.
