create a new user profile in linux?

  • How can I create a new user profile in linux?

    Previously in other versions of opera did so:

    Opera -pd newprofile

    With this command I can no longer create a new profile

    Thank you

  • That command - well, with a lowercase "opera", Linux is case sensitive - is for Opera 12.x and to my knowledge hasn't worked on any later versions.

  • Then how can I create a new user profile?

    I only have a profile in /.config/opera

    I want to have 4 user profiles and I can not find a solution.

    Many thanks sgunhouse for the help you can give me.

  • Looking through the list of Chromium commandline switches I see one called --profile-directory so you might try that - no guarantees though.

  • I already tried this:
    Operates -pd
    Opera --pd
    Opera -profile-manager

    None of these commands work to create a profile.

    Neither man pages exist in linux.

    I can not go on like this, I should use firefox again or another browser.

    This version of Opera disappoints at this point.

    Maybe install opera 12. at least in that version I can have several profiles.

    Many thanks sgunhouse

  • You did't say if you actually tried "--profile-directory" (note the two hyphens in front). Of course -pd doesn't work as that was an Opera 12 option.
