Ubuntu – Chrome or Chromium icon doesn’t show in the launcher


I have got Google Chrome Browser on Ubuntu 11.10, and when I open it, it won't appear on/in the sidebar. I then download Chromium, but the same thing happens. I try dragging it to the sidebar, but when I click it, it doesn't show it as open.

How do I fix this?

  • Try this:

    apt-get remove google-chrome-stable (or whatever version you're running)
    cd ~/.config
    rm -rf google-chrome/

    then logout and login, and launch chromium. It should appear in the launcher now. That's what worked for me :)
