Thread: KDEInit could not launch...

  1. #1

    Default KDEInit could not launch...

    openSUSE 13.1 KDE 64bit.

    After updating Google Chrome does not run.

    "KDEInit could not launch '/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable'."

    Help me!

    I can confirm this behavior. Just updated and I'm getting the same error. Won't even launch through a terminal.

    'usr/bin/google-chrome-stable' no longer exists on my system.
    There was no problem before the the last opensuse update.

    look for just chrome*

    I believe they may have renamed it.

    Don't use Chrome myself like to keep Google tracking down to minimum

    Solution:

    My openSUSE works with KDE interface and I have the icon "google-chrome.desktop" in my desktop.


    Go to "Desktop" with Dolphin, right click "google-chrome.desktop" and click to properties.
    In the tab "app"(application) click in the Browse button and go to:


    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome


    and add %U to the command line.


    It will look like:
    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U
    and click "OK".


    Now click in the icon "google-chrome.desktop".


    Google Chrome works fine.

    Thanks for rhus's solution. It works for me.

    I have no Google-Chrome desktop icon on my desktop. So I right click the entry in Application Menu -> Internet -> Google Chrome, and select Edit Application ..., then edit the Command line in the Application tab as rhus suggested.

    Maybe it is the same to edit google-chrome.desktop file in /usr/share/applications/ and replace /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable with /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome in all 3 places. (need root privileges.)

    hi, I have recreated a link /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable to /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome. The problem is that chrome has lost kwallet integration and I now get a dialog to create a new "keyring" when starting chrome. Anybody have a solution?

    I received three times a dialog box to create a new "keyring" when starting chrome.


    The problem was only solved when I did it.


    Start Menu -> Application... click with the right button -> Edit Application.
    Internet -> Browse Web -> Google Chrome..., then edit the "Command".


    Place the following:
    Code:
    /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U

    Save and close the application.
    I did not have more problems with "keyring".

    Hi there!
    I have the same problem: KDE wallet is disabled, so Chrome ask for "Enter password for keyring 'Default' to unlock". If I provide a password, Chrome doesn't ask again until I restart openSuse. If I don't provide the password, I can use Chrome normally, but Chrome ask for the password the next time I open a new Chrome session.
    Then, I applied the rhus solution by editing the command.
    But when I restarted openSuse, the "keyring" dialog, appears again.
