Chromium-browser unresponsive, need to reinstall

Asked by Kennett Sargent

I have corrupted an install of Chromium-browser under 11.04 and need to reinstall everything including extensions. When I uninstall and reinstall using Ubuntu Software Center, I am unable to get rid of the extensions I had previously installed. I have Sync enabled.

I tried sudo apt-get --purge remove chromium-browser, but I still see all the extensions I had before when I reinstall.

Its more than likely the settings. If you run:

mv /home/andy/.config/chromium /home/andy/.config/chromium_old

Then rerun the browser, does it work?

That worked. It must have been a corrupted settings file in ~/.config/chromium

ok then you can delete the old setup with:

rm -r ~/.config/chromium_old

To clean up (obviously hike out anything you want first)
