Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report (or there is insufficient information to determine if this is a bug) so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see

Chrome refuse to run as root for security reasons. This is a wise decision of the developers. You should run it as a normal user.

Can you help with this problem?
