I have installed google-chrome-stable 64 bit. But it is not opening. My system is Elementary OS Freya 64 bit.

Here is the error code that generate in the terminal.

[1:1:0425/175043:ERROR:image_metadata_extractor.cc(111)] Couldn't load                 libexif.

I have tried to install murrine but the system showed me that this is already in newest version.

  • Hmm, I wonder if this should be a bug filed against chrome/chromium?

  • How did you fix it? (I have the sane problem) Commented May 31, 2015 at 2:04
  • I was able to resolve all the errors by installing the i386 versions of the libs it was missing, Got stuck on LibGL.1.so Commented May 31, 2015 at 7:40

Looks like Chrome is looking for the Murrine Gtk engine. You should install gtk2-engines-murrine

  • @ned64 This answer does not, in my testing, fix chrome's inability to launch without crashing on Freya. I was able to resolve all console errors with the i386 packages of the missing libs and chrome would still not open Commented Jun 7, 2015 at 2:42
  • @ThorSummoner if you're getting errors about i386 packages, that means you've installed the 32bit version of Chrome on a 64bit system. You'll need to download the 64bit version instead. Commented Jun 8, 2015 at 16:21
  • What more can I do than install chrome from the 64 bit deb package? Because that's what I did ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Commented Jun 8, 2015 at 16:40

The chromium package (which is not the same as Google's Chrome). But it does work, and it does look and act like chrome, which basically satisfies my use case.

Chromium: https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/chromium-browser/

Make sure you have the 64 bit version. If your installed version 32 bit, purge it and then reinstall.

I had a similar issue, turns out I installed the 32 bit when I thought I installed 64 bit.

Unfortunately, the question is not only old, but already solved - plus, your answer clearly ignores the informations contained in the question. Therefore, your answer might get some downvotes. I suggest that you read both question and existing answers more thoroughly before answering. Commented Sep 22, 2015 at 8:43
  • I disagree with you @MatthewRock. Himself faced with the same problem and same errors if start from terminal. I was completely sure that the downloaded version of 64 but is not true. Repeat downloading 64 version of chrome but have same 32 version. I suspect the problem in the browser Midori. My answer 100% good! ) And my answer different with exist.
