Google Chrome on Linux

In Linux, Google Chrome uses Mozilla's NSS for the certificates, then you need the certutil tool to manage it.

In Debian/Ubuntu certutil comes from libnss3-tools
$ sudo apt-get install libnss3-tools

and to import the our root certs you simply need to run:

$ wget -O cacert-root.crt "http://www.cca.gov.bd/index.php?option=com_docman&task=doc_download&gid=329&Itemid=236"
$ certutil -d sql:$HOME/.pki/nssdb -A -t TC -n "BDRoot" -i RootCABangladesh.crt

and now it just works, without needing to restart the browser.
