Google Chrome - Your Profile could not be opened correctly ...

You might have encountered this issue.  Well I did too. Here is a solution I found and posted to the Google Discussion Thread on this same issue.

So, here is what happened in my case.

I have been using Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 and Google Chrome 5.0.375.70

After facing similar problem, I tried as said above in the discussions and also at the Ubuntu Forums page mentioned here.

However, I could not make it solved, and the message saying 'Your profile could not be opened correctly' popped every time I restarted my browser.

So, I checked each single file, in the following order inside the directory ~/.config/google-chrome/Default
1) databases (dir)
2) Local Storage (file)
3) Web Data(file)

and on my third trial, I just found it working without the pop up.

Hence, according to my findings, its the 'Web Data' file which when removed I got the problem solved.

I could not find my saved passwords restored still.

Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Recovering Grub

Uhu, Grub thing again.,

Now i must find the easiest solution, as simple as 1, 2 3.

  1. Boot from Live CD. Install grub with the following command
    $ apt-get install grub
    sudo grub
  2. Find the partition in which Grub is to be installed. May be the '/' partition of your hard drive, or the '/boot' partition of your hard drive. Then execute the following. Make sure you are in the grub shell with grub> prompt
    grub> root (hd0, 0) - Assuming 1st paritition of your first hard drive is the boot partition
  3. Setup the grub and reboot.
    grub> setup
    grub> quit
    $ reboot
