Hello everyone,

I installed xfce and tightvnc on my server. Conneting is no problem.

Then i installed chrome. Installation was a success. It started without problems right after the installation. I set up my google account and everything. Closed chrome and when i try to start it again this error comes: Example link

Does anyone have a solution?

Hello friend!

Sometimes the application will still launch, and it looks like it may be working on it as the command you’ve run has not closed out the process yet. Chrome, however, does tend to start very slowly on Linux sometimes. You might give another browser a try.

Kind Regards,
