Last night after watching one of the Bourne movies, my browser crashed hard.

The error showed in my log as:

[8212:8261:0426/100054.478202:ERROR:browser_gpu_channel_host_factory.cc(137)] Failed to launch GPU process.
[8212:8341:0426/100054.887705:ERROR:object_proxy.cc(615)] Failed to call method: org.freedesktop.Notifications.GetCapabilities: object_path= /org/freedesktop/Notifications: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.Notifications was not provided by any .service files
[8212:8261:0426/100056.084194:ERROR:browser_gpu_channel_host_factory.cc(137)] Failed to launch GPU process.
Received signal 4 ILL_ILLOPN 555bfd9b1d5b

Anyway killing and restarting was no help. So I apt updated and apt install chromium and now it's working again. Weird.
