what is ~/.config/chromium doing there?

I'm "trying" to clean the hidden files in my home folder and i've found this:
Code: Select all
ffunenga@asus:~$ ls .config/
autostart  chromium  deskbar-applet  geany  mate          menus  totem           user-dirs.dirs
caja       dconf     enchant         htop   mate-session  pluma  Trolltech.conf  user-dirs.locale

can I remove ~/.config/chromium ?

Note: I've just installed mint 13

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Yes, you can remove that if you want. It is added to each new account as it is being created from the /etc/skel directory, with default configuration files for new users. If you don't use Chromium or Chrome, you won't miss it.
