comment How do I use Chrome (Linux) application launchers in Docky alongside regular Chrome windows?
Fascinating @Orlando! The combination of class AND the separate user-data-dir seems to branch it off... into the same group as whatever terminal I'm using. :P Putting the launcher in Docky spawns a new icon, and when launching it from GNOME, there's no option to pin to dock. Any tips for getting it to persist to the dock?

Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work. The window is still grouped with other Chrome windows.

comment What is the simplest way to build your own .deb package?
I was imagining a situation where I'd be packing something that I didn't compile -- just installing a bunch of files to various locations in the computer and depending on other packages. Checkinstall does seem to be the best package-based solution that I've found... but as I started looking at how I would do what I wanted to do in checkinstall, I'm finding that the easiest way to do what I want is actually just to make a huge BASH script with a bunch of echo > and echo >> and apt-get -y install. So you're right on both counts!
