If you are not using GNOME in Linux, you will probably see the following error message when trying to launch Google Chrome.
$ google-chrome Gkr-Message: 19:01:13.179: secret service operation failed: The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files
Install the package
gnome-keyring to solve the above error no matter
which graphical desktop environment you are using (KDE, XFCE4, etc).
sudo apt install gnome-keyring
Now Chrome should start without problems.
