Meaning it opens another window on the same desktop as the first -- so running it remotely doesn't work (neither does it work on a monitor set as a separate X desktop). Perhaps if a DISPLAY is passed to it?
Tried that before, still doesn't work. The only solution I've found is to set up a new profile.
I run separate X desktops on my machine at work, and I have to have a separate profile for each. The launcher in the taskbar for one monitor is:
The other monitor is:
/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome %U --user-data-dir=~/.config/google-chrome0
It works fine, the only downside is you can't share bookmarks between them. So when I want to add a new bookmark, I have to add it to each of them separately.
