-My goal: what is a non-changing path of my Chromium snap user profile? (for my rsync backup script.)
-What I did: 2019-11-01 manual copy of my profile as instructed in osomon post.
[edit: these steps are obsolete, see later replies.]
sudo snap install chromium mkdir -p ~/snap/chromium/current/.config cp -R ~/.config/chromium ~/snap/chromium/current/.config/
How things are now: $HOME/snap/chromium:
drwxr-xr-x 5 ... Nov 1 10:02 920/ drwxr-xr-x 5 ... Nov 8 07:18 937/ drwxr-xr-x 3 ... Nov 1 10:02 common/ drwxrwxr-x 3 ... Nov 1 09:57 current/
The ‘937’ revision dir reflects my recent usage (e.g. my bookmarks file), the ‘current’ dir does not (frozen in time at presumably copy command timestamp).
-What I’m confused about:
An osomon post via web searching says ‘current’ is a symbolic link:
“'current’ is a symbolic link to the current revision of the snap that is installed”
but it’s not in my case (‘d’ not ‘l’).
I assume that if ‘current’ were a s-link to my active profile and adjusted automatically by the snap service then that would be the solution to my goal since 937 will eventually increment.
What should I do? Thanks for any help.
