|Summary||0005404: 2019.1 chromium wont start from Applications menu|
|Description||if you try to open chromium from the applications menu it will refuse to open if you attempt to open it from the terminal you will get a warning about it wont run as root however there is a workaround|
[30475:30475:0419/020609.691876:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(89)] Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported. See https://crbug.com/638180.
root@kali:~# chromium --no-sandbox
||I create a non root user and use this non root account to run chromium, with a kde desktop you can simply assign a specific user to a launcher in the advanced tab in the menu editor. (this also works great for tor browser)|
You'll need exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@"--user-data-dir --test-type --no-sandbox at the end of the chrome/chromium option files if you are running as root - see https://www.computernetworkingnotes.com/linux-tutorials/install-and-run-chrome-as-root-in-ubuntu-linux.html .
I'm told it's a feature :)
