Why don't you?
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

You can practice somewhat with Zim wiki, it gives you a good head start on the job & automatically codes things for you. I've don't have the need to create documents in Zim & then transfer them to the Manjaro wiki, but I think you could, after which you would likely just need to do a little additional formatting to the text (or maybe not).

If you get the page there (one way or another) & need some help, just give me a yell & I can tidy it up for you & also tell you how I did it.

Had you killed your browser before trying to start the process?

I had to kill mine & restart Openbox before starting psd.

Before you set this up, make sure you have a backup of your profile. Don't assume it will be fine.

On my main machine, it looked OK for a while. Then I noticed recursive symlinks appearing in the ~/.mozilla/firefox profile directory and within profiles themselves. Not sure why this was happening. However, the strangeness got worse and profiles started disappearing after reboots.

I can only assume that having a symlinked "nightly" profile between .mozilla/firefox and .mozilla/firefox-trunk was messing things up.

It hasn't been causing any problems for me thus far... I'm not doing your "nightly" thing though.

Thank you for the daemon. It's working perfectly in Manjaro. Much appreciated!

Been using this for many months now. Greatly improved my browsing experience on one of my low-power machines!

Code: [Select]
# Define where the pid file for psd will reside
#   Arch Linux/Chakra, Debian 7+, Fedora, and Gentoo leave this commented out
#   Debian 6 and below/Mint/Ubuntu use a setting of "/var/run/psd"
#DAEMON_FILE="/run/psd"

I don't understand the last line should be(stay) commented or not?

edit: This daemon will sync only profile or both profile and cache?

Saying that Java is good because it works on every OS is like saying that anal sex is good because it works on every gender.
