Google Chrome – Hide ‘Your Profile Could Not Be Opened Correctly’ Error

10.0410.10error handlinggoogle-chromepermissions

I have a small public internet cafe, with Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10. I'm using
Google Chrome 7.0.517.44 (64615), with AutoScroll – Version: 2.7.5; AdBlock is removed because of high CPU loads, and unconfortable speed of machine.

"Your profile could not be opened correctly" error is displayed:
cannot load profile This image is only an illustration.

The reason is that I changed permissions of some config files, to don't remember the history, there are no setting in options, to don't use history.

I've been removed write permission to:

~/.config/google-chrome$ find . -group nopasswdlogin
./Default/Archived History
./Default/Visited Links

When I solved all of my problem, I'll remove some other write permission, this is a public place.

What methods are known to HIDE this message? Thanks!

I do not have an exact answer to your question, but maybe a solution for your problem:

chromium can be managed by policies under /etc/chromium-browser/policies/

Have a look at for a short introduction and at for the available settings which you can lock down.
