When I go to another site, Chrome pauses then auto closes then reopens itself. Has anyone noticed that & found a solution to this?

I've never had this problem. It could be any number of things.
Can you provide a bit more information about your PC/system?
See this thread for the type of system information to include and the programs/commands required to get it.

Also, what version of chrome is it?

I can't seem to get that tool. All I get is:
[email protected]:~$ sudo pacman -S i-nex libcpuid
[sudo] password for eddie:

Just an update to Jas' (@JasKinasis ) post above :

The output the OP has posted above is correct, nor does replacing "daily" with "stable" change things. Nor does the Gambas repo add, likewise.

Some of the authors have not yet caught up with the release on 25th April of 18.04 'Bionic Beaver'. Unetbootin has also been dropped from Ubuntu's repos, and there are a few others.

I would expect things may change in coming weeks.

Bottom line is, no i-nex for now on Ubuntu/Linux Mint.

At the OP @Eddie Paul Litz - the command featuring "pacman" would not have ever worked for you, it is from Manjaro and other Arch-based distributions. Ubuntu is a Debian-based distribution, different command syntax.

Cheers all

Okay, is there any other way to get my System Info to you guys?

At terminal:

Code:
inxi -Fxs
Also, lets just check that it is Google's Chrome, and not Chromium browser. Did you download it from the internet, or install it from your Ubuntus repositories? If its Chrome, it will have a multi-coloured circle for an icon, if Chromium, a blue circle.

If its Chrome you have, then at Terminal:

Code:
apt-cache policy google-chrome-stable
... will tell us the version, mine is as follows (but I dont use Chrome, I have just downloaded it for this exercise):

[email protected]:~$ apt-cache policy google-chrome-stable
google-chrome-stable:
Installed: 66.0.3359.139-1
Candidate: 66.0.3359.139-1
Version table:
*** 66.0.3359.139-1 100
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Cheers

Gotcha, ta for that (thankyou). I'll run my updates and hopefully we will be on the same page.

If I notice anything out of the ordinary, I will let you know.

Don't hold your breath, this Wizard is a busy (bionic) beaver for the next few days :rolleyes:

That inxi output may not be needed, although it is always handy, not the least for the OP himself.

Eddie is using a Beta version of Chrome, and that may account for what might be a bug in it. He can confirm if and where he downloaded it from, but if it was not from the official Google Chrome website, which is here

https://www.google.com/chrome/

... then I would urge caution in using it.

The following video I have put together shows a safe way to download and install packages not necessarily in your Distros repositories:


VIDEO 1 - SAFE WAY TO INSTALL FOREIGN PACKAGES

I showed there, two (2) METHODS of checking a packages credentials, one through GtkHash, the other through Terminal.

For those interested in GtkHash, see my tute here https://www.linux.org/threads/gtkhash-–-hashing-out-the-basics.4430/#post-45629

It seems that downloading the legitimate .deb file for the package, and installing it, actually makes three (3) iterations of Chrome available, as can be seen from the screenshot from my Synaptic Package Manager on the Beaver




SCREENSHOT 1 - CHROME REFERENCES - SYNAPTIC

The entry with the green-filled checkbox is my Chrome, and above and below it a Beta (which the OP has) and an Unstable/Testing version. The icon legend in the popup is found under Help on the Menu bar.

If Synaptic Package Manager is not in your Debian-based (Ubuntu, Linux Mint & the like) Distro, you can get it with

Code:
sudo apt-get install synaptic
I would put it in my Favourites or Panel, you can make good use of it.

I'll leave it to the OP @Eddie Paul Litz to respond if he wishes to remove the beta and install the stable version of Chrome.

Cheers all

Well that's not a lot of fun, is it? :confused:

We'd better get that inxi -Fxs output from you, then, and we'll see "whats what & who's who", as my late Mother used to say.

We may have to scout around and see if there is an incompatibility between your environment and running Chrome.

Have you used Firefox before, to keep you going in the meantime?
