I'm trying to set up a sync server for Chromium/Chrome, but i'm totally failed. I also couldn't find a How-To (like this here for Firefox) for that.

I only found this question from '10 on superuser and a corresponding chromium bug which says that the command line flag --sync-url="<your server here>" is required.

Could someone help me and give me the exact instructions what I need to do to set up the sync server on Ubuntu?

Wait, techincally, would this belong on superuser, or serverfault? It fits both categories so... ? – David Sep 5 '13 at 19:54

Use this python file to run a chromium sync server. (taken from the blog post) Several other files to test it are in there as well. Get the server running and point your '--sync-url=""' option to it.
