How to get Chrome/Chromium to run as root on PiMP OS?

Hi guys, I simply want to install my new Ledger Nano S on my PIMP OS (2.5) mining rig. To do so, I must install Google Chrome or Chromium. Both are installed and available in the Menu but none will open if I double click on it. All updates are made. Am I missing something ?
It is not recommended to use wallets on mining rigs. You should install that on your own workstation. Also, Firefox is installed, that should be supported.
On Ubuntu, Chrome/chromium will not run as root without a modification, if I recall. Try running
google-chrome --user-data-dirfrom terminal, and if this works, you can either modify your shortcut for that, or try this:
Open google-chrome located in /usr/bin with 'gedit', 'kate' or your favorite text editor:
--user-data-dirat the very end of the file. Mine looks like this:
exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" "$@" --user-data-dir
- Save, close and voilà, you're done. Enjoy your favorite browser.
Also, Love the customization of your desktop conky, feel free to share it.
Thanks again for your support.
