Ave!

I normally pin my chrome on (Super+1), Editor ( Super+2) and Firefox ( Super+3).

And thanks to this extension https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/413/dash-hotkeys/ i dont regret switching from Windows to Ubuntu.

Before upgrading from 14.10 to 15.04 it worked like this:

Super+1 opens chrome if not opened and focuses if already opened. Super+2 opens chrome if not opened and focuses if already opened. Super+3 opens chrome if not opened and focuses if already opened.

After the update only Chrome ( Super + 1 ) opens always new instance. Firefox and Editor works the same.

Ubuntu Gnome 15.04 with gnome shell 3.16.1, the problems occurs on my Desktop and laptop.

  • As you manipulate with .desktop files, you might want to check how they're built and identify the feature that makes chrome different. There are several locations for .desktop files, but most likely you would want to check the system level (1, 2) instances. – Paulius Šukys May 21 '15 at 3:44

Digged more for the problem so yes its a .desktop entry problem

After i edited :

vim /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop

On the end of each config group

[Desktop Entry]
[NewWindow Shortcut Group]
[NewIncognito Shortcut Group]

Added this:

## Custom
StartupWMClass=Google-chrome-stable
