    Wow, I'm really late to the party on this, but your suggestion worked great. Thanks.

    On FF4, I'm undecided whether I like it or not, and some extensions aren't upgraded for it yet, but I'll keep it for awhile longer. I get terrible flicker when watching some videos, but I can use chrome for them.

    Exclamation Re: Google Chrome installs but does not start up

    Chromium worked fine till last update and u get
    Code:
    nikola@dhcppc1:~> chromium
    [9382:9382:4166905457:ERROR:process_singleton_linux.cc(308)] The profile appears to be in use by process 2810 on host dhcppc2.  If you are sure no other processes are using this profile, delete the file /home/nikola/.config/chromium/SingletonLock and relaunch Chromium.
    Deleteing/moved the file lets chromium start but freezes after a few secs.
    So moved it back.
    Tried reinstalling chromium, too. no change.
    Any1 got any ideas?

    Lets try a new folder
    go to the same location except this time, rename the whole folder 'chromium' to 'old-chromium'

    Which repo do you have it from?
