Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I try to install an extension from the Chrome web store I get this error: "Could not create download directory".

Any idea how I can find out which directory it's trying to create? I've tried launching with

strace -e trace=file chromium-browser &

But that gave nothing helpful.
