Ubuntu: Google Chrome CSE Custom Search Engine after installing updates


Yesterday I installed updates on my install of Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty, and started googling in the address bar of Google Chrome and suddenly got a new CSE (Custom Search Engine) design instead my usual search. In Chrome Settings > Search there appeared a new icon and the mouseover tooltip reads

"This option is enabled by the administrator"  

so I can't change that CSE.

Trying reinstall Chrome but it makes nothing - CSE returns again.

What should I do to get back to my normal search?





I've found the answer at last..

do this in terminal

locate chrome.json

it will return a path

sudo nano [the path]

in my condition, it will return /etc/chromium-browser/policies/managed/chrome.json

then, change the content with this

{        "DefaultSearchProviderEnabled": true,        "DefaultSearchProviderInstantURL": "http://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}",     "DefaultSearchProviderKeyword": "google.com",        "DefaultSearchProviderName": "Google",        "DefaultSearchProviderSearchURL": "http://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}",      "DefaultSearchProviderSuggestURL": "http://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms}"   }  


Hover over the option with the google icon and click set as default
