    Can't start Google Chrome

    If I try to run 'google-chrome' from CLI I get an error:

    /opt/google/chrome/chrome: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Strange, as I ran it after install. But after a reboot it will no longer open.

    I have no 'libudev' in Ubuntu /usr/lib at all... could someone simply upload theirs?

    http://pkgs.org/centos-6-rhel-6/cent....rpm/download/

    Got it here... works for now.

    That didn't work for me as that's and RPM and for Redhat not Ubuntu. I tried downloading the source and compiling but hit all kinds of problems. I ended doing the following:

    $ sudo ln /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0

    Strange (and I don't like it)

    OK... kinda worked but couple o things:
    first, I run a i386 install on my 64 bit machine as many do
    and second, /usr was inappropriate on this platform. I needed to use "sudo ln /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libudev.so.1 /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libudev.so.0"

    I should also note that you will need to have libudev-dev installed for this to work.
