sudo aa-complain /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.chromium-browser

User: lordtoran
Functions: sudo

If AppArmor is installed with all profiles enforced, Chromium may refuse to start, printing a "failed to launch zygote process" error on stderr.

This command switches the Chromium profile from enforce to complain mode, effectively un-sandboxing the browser, but depending on the system setup it may be a smaller deal than a nonfunctional application.

google() { gg="https://www.google.com/search?q=";q="";if [[ $1 ]]; then for arg in "$@" ; do q="$q+$arg"; done ; if [[ -f /usr/bin/chromium ]]; then chromium "$gg"$q; else firefox -new-tab "$gg"$q; fi else echo 'Usage: google "[seach term]"'; fi }
p=~/.config/chromium/zed; cp -r ~/.config/chromium/Default $p && echo "chromium-browser --user-data-dir=$p" && chromium-browser --user-data-dir=$p;

Functions: cp echo

Change the value of p to match the path where you wish to create the profile.

To run it again in the future, use the parameter --user-data-dir (which gets echoed to you when run):

chromium-browser --user-data-dir=/path/to/your/

Quick Functions:

# create a new chromium profile

new-chromium-profile() { p=~/.config/chromium/$1; cp -r ~/.config/chromium/Default $p && echo "chromium-browser --user-data-dir=$p" && chromium-browser --user-data-dir=$p; }

# runs a chromium profile

run-chromium-profile() { chromium-browser --user-data-dir=~/.config/chromium/$1; }

for i in $(find ~/.config/chromium/*/Extensions -name 'manifest.json'); do n=$(grep -hIr name $i| cut -f4 -d '"'| sort);u="https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/";ue=$(basename $(dirname $(dirname $i))); echo -e "$n:\n$u$ue\n" ; done

Functions: cut find grep

Gives you a list for all installed chrome (chromium) extensions with URL to the page of the extension.

With this you can easy add a new Bookmark folder called "extensions" add every URL to that folder, so it will be synced and you can access the names from every computer you are logged in.


Only tested with chromium, for chrome you maybe have to change the find $PATH.
