Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

If you prefer kdialog over "gtkdialog" on chrome-based browsers, you may need to uninstall xdg-portal-gtk, apparently

It's likely there is a more proper way of doing it, not needing to uninstall, but I just lost my patience at this point.

Maybe still needs the non-GTK versions, a "neutral" one and a kde and a qt5 one, I can't really tell. I was about to uninstall them all, but occurred to me to try to uninstall just the gtk one, and voilá, I had kdialog on chrome-based-browsers again.


Why can't things be set by text files or environment variables with sane standards?...

It seems that sharing the config folder of chromium via symlink isn't a good idea

Short story shorter: two Debian 8 installs on the same PC, different HDs, same username of an user. Why not just symlink /home/user/.config/chromium in the new install? Well, it seems your extensions and their data get erased.

Story's moral: do backups of such folders first. Even if it works with mozilla (if I recall), Google could well be "nah, we better delete this stuff".

Chropera seems to behave a little bit better than Chrome/ium

Just pointing out just in case someone finds oneself annoyed by Chrome/ium seemingly entering in neverending loops and reading or writing who-knows-what in the HDD for too long. I have the impression that the new Opera behaves somewhat better in this regard, but I really haven't used it as much, so could be just a matter of time until it hangs just as much.

Unfortunately, however, the new GUI is still somewhat like just a crippled Chrome GUI -- scrolling the wheel over the tab-bar...
