Profile in Use, Fedora

The profile appears to be in use by process 3810 on host Ays40. If you are sure that no other processes are using this profile, delete the file /home/pflsml/.config/google-chrome/SingletonLock and restart Google Chrome.

This means that someone uses google chrome or that it was closed unexpectedly. Try w in console. If there is a preson listed using kde/gnome it means he has chrome open, if there is not such user you should be safe to delete it

w is a variation of who. It shows you all users logged on the machine and their current command if any. As for kde or gnome w should tell you
