I want to run "Chat for Google" (Use the Chat for Google extension to connect and communicate.) Chrome/Chromium extension directly using a command or short cut in Ubuntu. (I know how to create desktop short cut for Chrome/Chromium web apps, but that is not possible with this extension.)
When mighty Captain Obvious stroke me reading this, out of curiosity I tried to call the extension ID as given by the web store to see what would happen:
"/usr/bin/chromium --profile-directory=Default --app-id=nckgahadagoaajjgafhacjanaoiihapd"
Result: It actually calls the Hangouts extension yet it brings up just a child menu of configuration menu. This one closes when leaving via OK/Cancel, so the princess is in another castle.
Though I wonder if there could be any ID pointing on the right spot, calling the main extension?
