Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

I run a separate partition for /home and have not had a problem with psd. Will try out latest version....

As do I and nor have I.  Two users reported that on occasion, psd would fail silently so this modification (minor really) should safeguard against that.

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

My psd takes 25 seconds to load at startup. Is there a way to delay it a little, so that it isn't copying stuff at the same time as everyone else?

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

@Unsolved - This is how systemd works.  The psd.service will start as soon as /home is accessible.  One strategy to minimizing start times is to minimize browser profiles.  For example, post the output of `psd p` which shows you how larger your profile(s) are.  A companion util called profile-cleaner which can help.  Moving your cache to tmpfs (not using psd) can help as well.  See the man page of psd for a link.

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

I have already made my profile smaller. But is there no way to ask the service to wait a few seconds or at least let the gui start first?
  Thank you!

I don't know about delay starting a service... you should google it.

`psd p` will invoke the preview or parse mode which shows more info about which profiles are to be sync'ed.

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

i can't help thinking that your browser is playing dirty tricks on you. please search for "33M" in this page - you should see it immediately.

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

@jose - That is spooky.  In firefox, your code output is truncated; in chromium, I can see a scroll bar.  Very odd!

Everything looks fine for your setup.  Do this:

1) Stop psd
2) Post the output of `ls -l ~/.config | grep chrom`
3) Post the output of `ls -la /tmp`

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

OK.  Based on your output, you do not have any symlinks in ~/.config but two copies of the profile for some reason.  Do this:

1) Verify that the daemon is stopped, `psd p | grep run` which should return a value of:

Daemon file /run/psd is not present.

If the output says that it is in fact present, you didn't stop psd.

2) `mv ~/.config/chromium-backup ~/.config/chromium-backup-stalled`
3) `mv /tmp/jose-chromium ~/.config/jose-chromium-from-tmp-stalled`

This should effectively return your system to the native state.  Now start psd and again post the output of:
4) Post the output of `ls -l ~/.config | grep chrom`
5) Post the output of `ls -la /tmp`

Re: profile-sync-daemon - keep browser profiles in tmpfs and sync'ed

Looks good now.  When you are 100 % sure that everything is good and that your profile is intact, you can delete both the temp dirs:

chromium-backup-stalled
jose-chromium-from-tmp-stalled

Tell me, do you get the error you originally saw now?

Never heard of it... how large is its profile dir?  Frankly, I added support for another 'obscure' browser and realized while testing that its profile was tiny and not really worthy of syncing.  Can't remember which one, but it's in there.
