I'm running ubuntu 12.04. Chrome remembers what tabs were pinned, and re-opens them, most of the time. Sometimes, on my computer, if the browser dies, it forgets and I have to redo them. I have found that I should be able to force it to always open specified pinned tabs, but am unsure how to do this in unity. I have tried modifying the first exec line in /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop, but when I do, it doesn't work and it removes chrome from my side bar, until I re-add it.
I am trying to modify it like this:
Exec=/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --pinned-tab-count=3 http://www.gmail.com/ http://internal.server1/ https://internal.server2/
Do I have my syntax wrong, or is that now how I should modify its default behavior, or both?
