Here are examples of how to do this by launching Chrome from the command line.</p><p><strong>Ubuntu</strong></p> <pre>chromium-browser <span data-scayt_word="--user-data-dir" data-scaytid="1">--user-data-dir</span>=/home/$USER/.config/chromium-profile-test </pre> <p><strong>Mac OS X - Lion</strong></p><!-- google_ad_section_end --><p><a href="http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/how-run-multiple-chrome-profiles-website-testing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/how-run-multiple-chrome-profiles-website-testing#comments bash chrome chromium linux macos profile testing ubuntu Mon, 05 Dec 2011 17:25:09 +0000 David 47 at http://webpagedeveloper.me Ubuntu 11.10 boot freezing at Checking Battery State because LightDM fails to load http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/ubuntu-1110-boot-freezing-checking-battery-state-because-lightdm-fails-load <!-- google_ad_section_start --><p>It is always a scary experience upgrading Ubuntu versions because it seems like about half of the time <span data-scayt_word="somethings" data-scaytid="12">somethings</span> goes wrong. &nbsp;(Although, to be fair, usually things are also fixed.) &nbsp;From my recent update from Ubuntu 11.04 to 11.10 my boot froze after the Checking Battery State [OK] status line.</p><!-- google_ad_section_end --><p><a href="http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/ubuntu-1110-boot-freezing-checking-battery-state-because-lightdm-fails-load" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/ubuntu-1110-boot-freezing-checking-battery-state-because-lightdm-fails-load#comments 11.10 lightdm Oneiric Ocelot ubuntu Mon, 17 Oct 2011 14:16:45 +0000 David 46 at http://webpagedeveloper.me Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid LAMP server running php 5.2 and 5.3 http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/ubuntu-1004-lucid-lamp-server-running-php-52-and-53 <!-- google_ad_section_start --><p><span style="font-size: 8px;">Note: I could not get 5.2 and 5.3 running at the same time.

To remove the annoying terminal beep in Ubuntu 10.04 go to (In the terminal window):</p> <p>Edit -&gt; Profiles...<br /> Edit the Default Profile<br /> Uncheck the "Terminal bell"<br /> Click the Close button<br /> Done!</p> <p>That was easy. Only needed to know where to look. And now no longer annoying beeps when I press the TAB button to get directory listings.

The one that I like is DevNullSMTP. The only problem is that I could not get it to work without a installing sendmail and then disabling the deamon. These were the steps that I had to do.</p> <p>Steps:<br /> Install sendmail-bin "sudo apt-get install sendmail-bin"<br /> Turn off deamon using "sudo update-rc.d -f sendmail remove"<br /> Reboot computer</p> <!-- google_ad_section_end --><p><a href="http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/devnullsmtp-configuration-ubuntu-910-and-1004" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/devnullsmtp-configuration-ubuntu-910-and-1004#comments devnullsmtp fake mail sendmail ubuntu Tue, 04 May 2010 16:00:00 +0000 David 32 at http://webpagedeveloper.me Wireless trouble in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid with Ralink RT2860 chipset http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/wireless-trouble-ubuntu-1004-lucid-ralink-rt2860-chipset <!-- google_ad_section_start --><p>Once again I am having trouble with the Ralink RT2860 chipset wireless card under Ubuntu. I have had an issue with this NIC since 9.04! The problem has been that the card would not connect to wireless networks and would keep asking for a password even though it had already been entered. The fix for 9.04 and 9.10, for me, is described in this <a href="http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7239633&amp;postcount=26">forum post</a>.</p> <!-- google_ad_section_end --><p><a href="http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/wireless-trouble-ubuntu-1004-lucid-ralink-rt2860-chipset" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://webpagedeveloper.me/blog/wireless-trouble-ubuntu-1004-lucid-ralink-rt2860-chipset#comments bugs ubuntu wireless Mon, 03 May 2010 15:21:05 +0000 David 31 at http://webpagedeveloper.me
