OT: Fedora - How to Eliminate Google-Chrome's Password Prompt

Fedora Linux
I do not use Chrome much. In fact, I only have it because it correctly parses my custom link shortener in TweetDeck; something that does not work properly in Firefox. In any event, every time I launch the damned thing (in KDE) it asks for my wallet password.

The fix is simple. You need to edit a bash script: /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome which initializes the browser.

The last four lines should look like this in order to add “-password-store=basic”:

if [[ -n "$CHROME_USER_DATA_DIR" ]]; then
# Note: exec -a below is a bashism.
exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" \
--user-data-dir="$CHROME_USER_DATA_DIR" -password-store=basic "$@"
exec -a "$0" "$HERE/chrome" -password-store=basic "$@"
