How to fix “Your profile could not be opened correctly.” on Linux?

I experience the program on Linux (Fedora 12) that Chrome reports “Your profile could not be opened correctly.” as follows.

chrome your file could not be opened correctly

How to fix it? Restarting Chrome would not help.

Removing the ‘Web Data’ directories from all profiles works for me (Making backup first as the commands will remove your files):

cd ~/.config/google-chrome
find ./ -name 'Web Data' -exec rm {} -rf ;

I just made an account here simply to thank you for this solution.
