Ubuntu – Chromium doesn’t work

browserchromiumdropboxtroubleshooting

My chromium browser doesn't work for some reason. What I mean by that is that it doesn't even start up when I click on chromium icon or choose chromium from applications menu. What might be the problem?

After typing: chromium-browser in the terminal I get this:

/home/freshnrg/.themes/T-ish-Brushed-Overlaid/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:56: Clearlooks configuration option "sunkenmenu" is not supported and will be ignored.
/home/freshnrg/.themes/T-ish-Brushed-Overlaid/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:57: Clearlooks configuration option "menuitemstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
/home/freshnrg/.themes/T-ish-Brushed-Overlaid/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:58: Clearlooks configuration option "listviewitemstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
/home/freshnrg/.themes/T-ish-Brushed-Overlaid/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:59: Clearlooks configuration option "progressbarstyle" is not supported and will be ignored.
Segmentation fault

So nothing about any errors connected to chromium because all that is just my ubuntu theme errors witch i get all the time. don't understand that Segmentation fault not sure if that has anything to do with chromium.

after typing: rm -rf ~/.config/chromium
and then: chromium-browser

chromium actually starts from scratch asking if I want to import bookmarks from firefox and it doesn't matter what I choose because that is it. After that nothing happens and chromium still doesn't work.

Re-installation didn't helped. I still get segmentation fault error.

EDIT: I've done all this, went back to official version 5.0.375.127, I've re-installed it couple of times and still nothing. I still have that segmentation fault error.

EDIT: It's definitely something to do with dropbox. After installing dropbox on my new account Chromium stopped working. How can I get rid of dropbox on my old account as I've uninstalled it and deleted all the files that has anything to do with dropbox but I still can't get Chromium to work?

Wild shot: Do you have the new Ubuntu font beta installed?.

There are a couple of reports on the net that this font crashes Chrome: upstream bug, ubuntu bug.
