Google Chrome / Chromium Browser work in Gnome, but no in KDE
I use either the Google-Chrome beta (.deb downloaded from Google) or Chromium-Browser (from the daily ppa) on a number of different machines, both at home and at work.
In all but one case, Chrome/Chromium works fine. The exception is on my primary desktop PC at home. This machine is a Core 2 Quad w/4GB RAM, running the 64-bit version on K/Ubuntu 9.10.
On this machine, I am generally unable to run either Chome/Chromium, at least when using KDE. The browser starts up, but when I select a page for it to load, it acts like it is trying, but then appears to time-out. (I then get the 'Aw snap' message.) If I then close the browser, I notice that 'ps aux' shows that several processes related to Chrome remain running, and have to be manually killed.
The confusing thing is, that if I log out of my KDE session, then start a Gnome session, Chrome seems to work just fine.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Any suggestions as to what the issue may be?
I should also mention, that in looking into this, I did set this particular desktop to start using Google's DNS service. It didn't seem to have any effect on anything.
I have poked around through the forums, but have not seen any threads dealing with this kind of an issue.
