Where is the Chrome settings file? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/13

[WayBack] Where is the Chrome settings file? – Super User, on various platforms as a folder named Default under:

In Windows%LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\
In OS X~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/
In Linux~/.config/google-chrome/

The easiest way to find out the actual location is by browsing to chrome://version/ as per [WayBack] google chrome – Disabling “Sign In ” tab on startup – Super User. There the entry Profile Path will show the actual profile location.

Inside that path is a JSON file called preferences which you can edit if Chrome is closed (since Chrome will overwrite it regularly when active).

A few entries I saw are interesting:

  • Restoring the session on startup:
        "session": {
          "restore_on_startup": 1
        },
  • While running
        "exit_type": "Crashed",
        "exited_cleanly": true,
  • After closing
        "exit_type": "Normal",
        "exited_cleanly": true,

command line – How to access a usb flash drive from the terminal? – Ask Ubuntu

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/05/13

Based on [WayBackcommand line – How to access a usb flash drive from the terminal? – Ask Ubuntu

Figure out the device:

  • lsblk
  • sudo blkid
  • sudo fdisk -l

Mount the device (assuming it is /dev/sdb1):

  • sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usb
  • pmount /dev/sdb1
  • udisksctl mount -b /dev/sdb1

Unmounting and eject is in [WayBack] Linux (Ubuntu): safely remove USB flash disk via command line – Stack Overflow
