View Full Version : Google Chrome causes instant crash and logout

July 3rd, 2014, 03:49 AM
Fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (on a Toshiba QOSMIO F60/016 Nvidia GT330M)

Installed latest nvidia drivers 337.19 from nvidia site as 331.20 via the additional drivers utility wasn't detecting any graphics card.

Unity desk top manager.

Installed Google Chrome via Ubuntu Software Centre.

The instant I try and launch Chrome it crashes and X-org resets sending me back to the login screen. Firefox is working fine.

I found similar threads here but none where Chrome wont even open.

Any ideas?

Fixed the problem by downgrading to the supported 331.20 nVidia driver.
Also fixed my issue where System Settings -> Details : Overview -> Graphics (entry) was showing as blank and Graphics -> Graphics Driver (entry) was showing as blank.
