    I want to install Google Chrome on my Fedora18. Have tried installing through Web as well as through Terminal Command. It shows it progress fine untill end infact is appearing in Applications also, but is not running. I am getting the following Error

    Please start Google Chrome as a normal user. To run as root, you must specify an alternate --user-data-dir for storage of profile information.

    Someone please suggest how can I install it

    method for install Google Chrome on Fedora 18

    Stable installed fine and runs nicely on Oracle Linux 6.2 (2.6.39).

    Still got three could not get owner of name org.chromium.Mtpd errors.

    Also the Firefox nemsis “failed to create drawable” error.

    But it works and that’s more than I can say for Firefox after I attempted to add Flash.
