    Default Userscripts in Chrome

    Hello,

    If you use Chrome 2.x, find out your user data directory (mine is C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default ).
    Create a "User Scripts" directory inside your user data directory (in my case, that is C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User Scripts).
    Copy any script.user.js file into your "User Scripts" directory.
    Right-click the shortcut icon of Google Chrome, either on your desktop or in your "Start" menu, and click "Properties".
    Select the second tab named "Shortcut", and in the "Target" field, append --enable-user-scripts with a space inbetween; the command flag --enable-user-scripts has to be outside the double quotes, if any.

    For instance:

    Before: "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
    After: "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --enable-user-scripts


    There are over 39.000 scripts available on http://userscripts.org/ (initially for Firefox but most work on Chrome !!!)

    I have tested some (+/- 50) and actively use +/- 10 scripts

    This is fantastic !!!!

    Rgds,

    Luc VN

    Yeah, I've had AdSweep virtually since it came out (there's a new version out)...

    I'll have a look at the others you have highlighted when I get 5 mins ....

    I was able to get adsweep and youtube scripts to work with very little effort, but I can't seem to get nothing else to work. Do to just not knowing what to save the file as______.user.js

    For instance on the following ones I'd like to tryout and possibly use but don't know what to save them as.

    http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/42620
    http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/45825
    http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/31950
    http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/46418

    If anyone knows the proper way of saving these or any other in the future, Please help..

    First off, make sure you are following Luc VN's post on how and where to create your User Scripts folder. When downloading those user scripts, save them exactly how they want to be saved. For exmaple the first one you posted wants to save as 42620.user.js. It will not work without the .user. in there. Since I know you use extensions as well, this is going to be your chrome target line for using extensions AND user scripts:

    "C:\Documents and Settings\3D SownZ\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --enable-extensions --enable-user-scripts

    Keep in mind some user scripts may not work as they were not developed specifically for chrome. I have tested all the ones you posted and the only one that worked for me (under 2.0.180.0) was http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/42620. You right click the "Install" button, choose save as and save it into your User Scripts folder.

    Just a side note, but extensions are quickly becoming way more powerful then user scripts now.

    yeah, I was doing everything right as follows... It seems I pinpointed it to somehow things stopped working properly after I installed a gmail notifier (do to no google toolbar anymore"man i miss that the most") but a clean install seemed to have gotten rid of the problem..

    Thanks for the suggestion and the also the testing on them also. That is the only one I can get to work...
