There is a common Google Chrome error when trying to run it in Linux due to Chrome’s GPU usage.
Unfortunately there isn’t a clear fix yet, this is a is an easy solution to make it possible to use Chrome browser when the following error message appears.
This error affects to all Chrome versions:
- Google Chrome stable
- Google Chrome beta
$ google-chrome [2307:2307:0106/185502.822827:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(364)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process. $ chromium-browser [2863:2863:0106/185533.087795:ERROR:sandbox_linux.cc(364)] InitializeSandbox() called with multiple threads in process gpu-process.
The easiest solution is to avoid using GPU hardware acceleration with
the following flags:
$ google-chrome --disable-gpu --disable-software-rasterizer
