This question already has an answer here:
I have previously downloaded and installed the Chrome (not Chromium) Version 52.0.2743.82 (64-bit) browser. It has worked in the past (I use Chromium as my primary browser). But today it will not launch. I removed it and re-installed it and the problem continues. If I launch it from the command line it says that it core dumps. I don't know where the core file goes. It isn't in the directory where I tried to run chrome, or in my home directory (not that I would know what to do with it).
I need Chrome to watch Amazon Video (they won't allow Chromium as a browser). I could watch them on another computer, but it is disturbing that a program has all of a sudden stopped working. I don't believe that I installed any program between when it last worked and when it stopped working.
I was asked to add the message that displays in the terminal. Here it is along with the command I issued:
google-chrome-stable Aborted (core dumped)
This output is coming from Linux, not Chrome, as redirecting the Chrome output produces an empty output.txt file and the same output on the terminal:
google-chrome-stable > output.txt 2>&1 Aborted (core dumped)
Edit2: I found a solution as the answer to this question: Google Chrome not starting ("Aborted (core dumped)")
The solution is to delete the file ~/.gtk-2.0
I don't know if it matters, but this is what was in that file:
include "/usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" gtk-theme-name="oxygen-gtk"
