Fix Chromium browser not starting

sudo aa-complain /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.chromium-browser
If AppArmor is installed with all profiles enforced, Chromium may refuse to start, printing a "failed to launch zygote process" error on stderr. This command switches the Chromium profile from enforce to complain mode, effectively un-sandboxing the browser, but depending on the system setup it may be a smaller deal than a nonfunctional application.
Sample Output
Setting /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.chromium-browser to complain mode.

What Others Think

I'm sure some people will find your commands useful, but there seems to be a depressing theme running through half of them: kill this reboot that workaround the other . Have you thought about changing distro? Let the flamewar begin... :-)

Well, most of them are just-in-case aliases in my .bash_aliases/.zshrc (yes, I changed to zsh recently) or from oneliner scripts in my ~/bin that accumulated over the years for rare and specific tasks. But I can grep my shell history as soon as I have some time. Using Mint (with a vanilla non-LTS Ubuntu kernel that supports my IdeaPad's hybrid graphics) nowadays because I'm currently not in very tinkery times. I built Arch from scratch in 2005 however before I missed some packages and switched to Debian, later sidux/aptosid and finally Sabayon :-) In case I get a spare laptop, Gentoo is still on my wishlist :-P

Everything was alright! She was able to help and explain everything and direct me to medical check-up you can get more information here. I will come again with the results, of course. As they say everything went well I was examined, I had some documents with me, the doctor looked through my papers, but it was not enough, so the specialist gave recommendations. The therapist gave me enough time, I stayed with the doctor for about 15-20 minutes. Everything was clear. I would recommend this doctor to others. The specialist did not prescribe any treatment for me. I am satisfied with everything. Excellent doctor, professional diagnostics and consequently good treatment. In addition his personal characteristics and attitude towards his patients were excellent.
