How do I remove Chromium's user profile?


I'm trying to get Gmail as the default mail handler in Chromium and Google's documentation isn't working, so I need to completely delete the profile and start over. The profile is located at ~/.config/chromium/, and no matter how many times I delete it as user or root with Chromium uninstalled it just keeps coming back.

HELP!

If I understand your question, each time you start chromium, it will create a new ~/.config/chromium file if one doesn't exist.
Therefore, that new .config/chromium profile that you see isn't the same as the one you deleted.

I'm not starting Chromium though, it's uninstalled from my system and the file persists.

LOL it was because Chromium was running in the background.
