Multiple separate instances
I'm on ubuntu 14.04, latest vivaldi. I want to run multiple, completely independent instances. I have 2 separate start icons in unity, one for an 'application' that runs in a browser, and another for the generic browser. By using separate desktop files with command line additions like "--profile-directory=default" and "--profile-directory=xyz" I have managed to get each icon to open vivaldi in the two different configurations I want (and need). So far so good. I can open each separately. However, if I open the application version, opening the generic browser does nothing. If I open the generic browser I can also separately open the application version, but closing one or the other closes both, which is not what I need. I tried using the "--app=" command line parameter, as used by Chromium, but it doesn't seem to work with vivaldi. Anyone got any ideas on how to have multiple independent versions running?
You can use the –user-data-dir instead of the --profile-directory option.
Thanks very much, that seems to work.
