I've installed a modified version of Chromium (nickel-browser) that can't open my profile, because of version issues. Nickel is currently running on a temporary profile and constantly warning me. What files do I need to move/rename to allow it to make its own default profile?

Can you open the browser from a terminal and edit your question to post the output? – Nitin Venkatesh Feb 23 '12 at 20:24

chmod -R 775 ~/.cache/chromium solves for me and also solved the profile issues as well. – Faron Sep 20 '14 at 20:20
