View Full Version : [ubuntu] Google Chrome Displaying Blank Pages

February 8th, 2010, 06:26 PM
I have Google Chrome version installed on Ubuntu Karmic. I am able to launch Google Chrome but i am unable to view any web pages. I do not get a "Web Page Cannot be displayed" warning, I simply get a blank page. If I try to look at my history, extensions or previous downloads I also get a blank page. I have tried un-installing and reinstalling. I read how this can sometimes can be caused by a profile corruption in Google chrome followed by directions on how to create a new profile in Windows. Anyone know how to create a new Goggle Chrome profile in Ubuntu? Anyone else experienced this problem?

Do not experienced that problem but you can reset your profile deleting .config/google-chrome/ directory.

Same problem here.

I have already deleted the folder and the problem still persists.

Same here, but, since i changed kernel configuration.
I can provide configs.

edit. i made some reserch and found this:

san@eeepc:~$ google-chrome
[3098:3098:1353126978:ERROR:chrome/app/chrome_dll_main.cc(234)] Gdk: shmget failed: error 38 (Function not implemented)
tried to serch something like shmget+kernel, and found this:

#include <sys/ipc.h (file:///usr/include/sys/ipc.h)>
#include <sys/shm.h (file:///usr/include/sys/shm.h)>

and from headers tried to find in kernel shm or ipc and found 'IPC V' option - it looks reasonable so i enabled it.
compiling at the moment but fount this one too [ http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/linux-kernel/133860-vesa-0-shmget-lowmem-error-function-not-implemented.html ].
