1. Open google-chrome located in /usr/bin with ‘gedit’, ‘kate’ or your favorite text editor.
Code:
gedit /usr/bin/google-chrome
  1. Add “–user-data-dir” (without the quotes) at the very end of the file. Mine looks like this:

exec -a “$0” “$HERE/chrome” “$@” –user-data-dir

  1. Save, close and voilà, you’re done. Enjoy your favorite browser.
