sudo aa-complain /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.chromium-browser

Fix Chromium browser not starting

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.

  • Change the value of p to match the path where you wish to create the profile. To run it again in the future, use the parameter --user-data-dir (which gets echoed to you when run): chromium-browser --user-data-dir=/path/to/your/ Quick Functions: # create a new chromium profile new-chromium-profile() { p=~/.config/chromium/$1; cp -r ~/.config/chromium/Default $p && echo "chromium-browser --user-data-dir=$p" && chromium-browser --user-data-dir=$p; } # runs a chromium profile run-chromium-profile() { chromium-browser --user-data-dir=~/.config/chromium/$1; } Show Sample Output

  • I rarely use the system menu to start applications. I use keyboard shortcuts instead. Keyboard shortcuts are convenient time savers. To configure the shortcuts I use gconf-editor or CompizConfig Settings Manager (if I have Compiz turned on). Lately I've been using Chromium as my browser. Since Chromium is under heavy development it occasionally becomes unusable and I have to switch back to Firefox. I was hard-coding the browser command in my keyboard shortcuts. This became problematic with frequent browser hopping. I now use the xdg-open command when defining my keyboard shortcuts. xdg-open opens a file or URL in the user's preferred application. In the metacity keybinging_commands I have xdg-open http://gmail.com where I used to have firefox http://gmail.com. Now when switching browsers I don't have to update each keyboard binding command I just change my default browser in Ubuntu by clicking through the menu: System / Preferences / Preferred Applications / Web Browser. xdg-open is more convenient for this browser hopper.

  • Gives you a list for all installed chrome (chromium) extensions with URL to the page of the extension. With this you can easy add a new Bookmark folder called "extensions" add every URL to that folder, so it will be synced and you can access the names from every computer you are logged in. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Only tested with chromium, for chrome you maybe have to change the find $PATH. Show Sample Output

    for i in $(find ~/.config/chromium/*/Extensions -name 'manifest.json'); do n=$(grep -hIr name $i| cut -f4 -d '"'| sort);u="https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/";ue=$(basename $(dirname $(dirname $i))); echo -e "$n:\n$u$ue\n" ; done

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
