Chrome/Chromium startup tweak


KDE Improvement

Score 61%
Downloads:  483
Submitted:  Dec 7 2011
Updated:  Aug 14 2012


Opens Chrome/Chromium to background making new Chrome/Chromium -windows open faster.
Also fixes bug of Chrome not opening after once closed.

Known Bugs:
- In some distributions there's no Import/Export buttons when setup opens "Window Rules" -dialog,
so user must hide that background-process-window by himself.

Extract archive somewhere and open terminal in folder that contains "setup.sh". (If using Dolphin, just press F4)
Then run:

(Should also work by just klicking "setup.sh" -file, but if it does not, use terminal instead.)


- Updated window rules to match latest versions of Chrome and Chromium.


- First release.

 Getting This to Work

1. No import button, tried doing this manually. Not sure if entered options correct.

2. Get a blank empty window on startup. I do not want to see this at all.

That blank empty window is supposed to be hidden by window rules..
It seems that some versions of kwinrules does not have import or export buttons.

Try right klick that blank window border.. Is there "Window specific options" etc.?
Window is supposed to be minimised and hidden from taskbar and others.

If you cant make it work, just remove "$HOME/.kde/Autostart/google-chrome-startup.desktop" and it's uninstalled.

Set up the kwin rules manually and now it is hidden.

Two problems:
1. Will no longer open initial pages as it is an added instance. Will open previously open pages so that is somewhat of a workaround.
2. --incognito locks me into that mode. Maybe this is a good idea but is implemented simply awfully in the chromium UI. I took it out.
3. Also defeats my nice. I will demand it there.

So it messes up with your Chrome's profile..
Try open that desktop-file with kate/kwrite etc. and replace "--incognito" with "--user-data-dir=$HOME/.config/google-chrome-startup".
Then it should not mess up with default profile.

And before logout, run "killall chrome" in case that your last session will be restored during login.

I will try the new version. I presently have no such file and my options are in a large .config/chromium/Default/Preferences

I also want it niced. How might I do that? nice -n## in the command line did not work.

There is one way to make it niced, but I'm not sure if it's best way:
kdesudo kcmshell4 kcm_cron

Go to "System cron".
Add new task:
renice -n ## -p $(pgrep -u user chromium-browser)

Replace "user" with your username and "##" with numbers (ex. -15) and make that task run every minute.

Can anyone tell me where are those window rules located?
I cant make installation script any better if I dont know what file I need to edit/create.

Good idea

Google-chrome is symlinked to chromium-browser and chromium on my box so did not really matter. First time around, I saw it and edited by hand.

I don't know what causes a bug.
I only figured out way to evade that problem without having to switch to Chromium.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
