    Chromium not working after upgrade

    Hi,

    After upgrading from Lubuntu 13.10 to 14.04, Chromium is not working. Sometimes it will not let me type anything in the address/search box, or in the search engine search box on the page. Sometimes I can the first time but then I cannot delete and retype another entry. I have installed and updated the new pepper flash plugin, but this does not help.

    What can I do?

    Many thanks.

    Re: Chromium not working after upgrade

    So I understand you had Chromium on 13.10 and it got upgraded to 14.04 with all the other packages, am I correct ?
    I had to reinstall it, the panel icon was not even working. I did not loose my profile settings.
    I do not recall how I got it reinstalled, but that probably was with apt-get as I rarely use the GUI for package managers, I like when it talks to me in the terminal.

    I would run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get remove chromium-browser
    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
    and see if it helps getting Chromium back on tracks.

    One thing, you did restart Chromium after installing the pepperflash plugin, right ?

    Probably known Ibus bug. I experienced this bug too, few days ago with daily Lubuntu 14.04 build with Slovak keyboard.

    Read know issues.

    Installation


    • Some keyboard layouts may have problems (such as UK ones). You can workaround the problem by removing all the ibus-* packages (see 1284635))

    Reinstalling did not work. Re the known issue, I have a somewhat more direct approach: Chromium doesn't work, Chrome does, Chromium out, Chrome in! Thank you.

    Experienced similar after upgrade to 14.04, but I converted Chromium to SRWare Iron, and it went away.

    Hi Jonathan_Traill,

    When opening Iron did you repeatedly get the following message:

    "Your profile can not be used because it is from a newer version of Iron.
    Some features may be unavailable. Please specify a different profile directory or use a newer version of Iron."

    I do. Any idea what to do about it?

    Thanks.

    Just to follow up as I had forgotten to do so (and got the bug on a fresh install) : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...r/+bug/1307648
    Use as a temp fix :
    Code:
    ibus exit
    Edit : following up on post #1.

    Hi! bapoumba
    I follow up your last post and it work for me.
    Any way, in the link you left it said that in Im-config change ibus to xim, I really do not understand what does it do. But in here he said to change iBus to Fcitx. Now which is the difference? or which will be more appropriate?

    Thanks

    Try to download Chrome from Google. I have similar problem before after the upgrade to 14.04 from 13.1.
