Google Chrome does not start in Ubuntu 16.04

I don't know why, this morning my Google Chrome did not start. Digging in StackOverflow, AskUbuntu and around Google give me some advices, but it does not work. Most of them suggest me to delete the passphrase that used to encrypted browser passwords. I don't want to do that, so I keep looking.

Finally, I found one hint, here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/330869

(Note, do it on your own risk, I don't have any responsible with it :P)

If your Google Chrome installed in /usr/bin/, go there and edit the script, look at the end of the file, you will see this line:

exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@"

Add the option and make it looks like this:

exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" --password-store=basic "$@"

Restart, and voila. Enjoy.
