Ubuntu – Google chrome not opening in ubuntu 16.04 LTS


I just installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Google Chrome does not run. I have reinstalled it many times and also restarted my computer, but it still does not run. All it does is just showing the icon and when you click it it will not open.

How to resolve this issue?

I had same issue. By running google-chrome from terminal, I found that it needed a new version of NSS:

$ google-chrome

[6999:7036:1113/200616.549496:FATAL:nss_util.cc(632)] NSS_VersionCheck("3.26") failed. NSS >= 3.26 is required. Please upgrade to the latest NSS, and if you still get this error, contact your distribution maintainer.

So I installed libnss3:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libnss3

and it worked for me :)
