    Smile how to run google chrome 13 as root

    I searched a lot about this problem ad I found the solution but it is not applied on this version 100% that because the directory is not correct (changed ) and I wana share it

    the problem appears when you run Google chrome v 13 , you get an error message says
    "Chromium can not be run as root
    Please start Chromium as a normal user. If you have previously run Chromium as root, you will need to change the ownership of your profile directory."

    The solution

    1- open Konsole Terminal
    2- type
    Code:
    cd /opt/google/chrome/
    hexedit chrome
    3- you will see hex editor program press Tab to switch to ascii
    4-press ctrl+s to search for "geteuid" and modify it to "getppid"
    5- ctrl+X to exit then press y for saving changes

    enjoy

    the solution founded
    BackTrack After-Install: Running Chromium Browser
    I just changed
    cd /usr/lib/chromium-browser
    hexedit chromium-browser

    to

    cd /opt/google/chrome/
    hexedit chrome

    I am sorry for my English language it is not that good in explanation :$
    thank you
