After installing Ubuntu 16.04 on a brand new computer, I tried to copy all Google Chrome data (Extensions, Bookmarks, Passwords, ...) from my old 14.04.
Especially extensions, since there's a lot of them!
Both 14.04 and 16.04 have the same user name (ring0) and ID (1000).
cp -pr as root [while the files belong to ring0 anyway])
~ring0/.config/google-chrome ~ring0/.cache/google-chrome ~ring0/.gnome/apps/chrome*
after a proper install (just in case a key is stored somewhere)
But, while the bookmarks have been recovered automatically (thanks to the login to Google Gmail et al.),
- Have to log back in to all sites (eg this one)
- No extension has been copied
Since I'm root on both machines, and have access to "Show passwords" in the settings anyway, is there a way to copy and get everything, including extensions, without having to login again?
