When I launched Chrome as root , I saw the following error.
|root@bt:~# chromium-browser --version|
Chromium 11.0.696.65 Ubuntu 10.04
The reason why I launch Chromium as root is accessing to chromium browser machine through VNC n’ logging on as root user.
ubuntu 11.04 ------------------ crhomium browser machine ( BackTrack Linux 5 )
From the security point of the view , starting chromium as root is dangerous.
launch chromium as non-root user like this.
1. connect to BackTrack linux (BT) from Ubuntu through VNC ( root user )
2. on BT machine , type xhost +
3. switch to non-root user n’ launch chromium browser.
# su - “non-root user”
$ chromium-browser &
