I have recently started to use a Linux Operating System (Peppermint Ice).
It came with Chromium pre-installed.
Now, on Windows, I use the Multiple User Profile trick to create more than one instance of Chrome.
This is very useful if you have other people using your computer.
Simply create a Profile for each user.
On Linux, using Chromium, it is not that simple.
I have searched, but I found no instructions on how to do it.
So, I messed around until I managed to do it.
(Disclaimer: It seems to work, but use this at your own risk.)
01. ) Click "Menu".
02. ) Go to "Internet".
03. ) Right Click on "Chromium Web Browser".
04. ) Click on "Add to Desktop". (This will create a Browser Item on the Desktop.)
05. ) Open your File Browser.
06. ) Navigate to your Desktop. (For me, it is "/home/lantere/Desktop")
07. ) Make a Copy of that Browser Item. (This is just for Safety. You can skip it.)
08. ) Open the Browser Item in Leafpad. (Under "Accessories" in the "Menu".)
09. ) Make the following Changes:
09.1) Name=My Chromium Web Browser (Give it whatever Name you want.)
09.2) GenericName=My Web Browser (Give it whatever Name you want.)
09.3) Comment=Access My Internet (Give it whatever Comment you want.)
09.4) Exec=/usr/bin/chromium-browser %U --user-data-dir=/home/lantere/Documents/Test
09.5) Save the Item and close Leafpad.
Double Click your Modified Browser Item.
It *should* start with your New Profile.
(I have used the folder "Test" in my "Documents" as my new Profile.)
Read this for Chrome installation in a Multi-User Environment.
Do this before you use the Multiple User Profile trick on Windows with Chrome.
