Disable integration pop-ups

Ubuntu 20.04
Zotero 5.0.96.3

Whenever I start Zotero it asks if I want to integrate it with multiple other programs. I don't want this so I click no. The next time I close and open Zotero, the pop-ups are back! This gets pretty tedious after a while. Is there a config file I can modify somewhere to prevent these pop-ups from happening?

The pop-ups in question are:

1. a new webpage with the content:

Success! You installed Zotero!
Zotero Extension
Install the Zotero Connector for Firefox
Zotero Connectors allow you to save to Zotero directly from your web browser.

and 2. a pop-up window that asks if I want to add the LibreOffice plugin.

Any tips?

  • This just means something on your system is preventing Zotero from updating the prefs.js file in the Zotero profile directory. No preferences are being saved for you.
  • For some reason, the permissions of ~/.zotero were set to root. Changing that to $USER fixed the issue. Thanks for your help!
  • Ran the first time as root maybe? In that case there may well be other root-owned files still.
  • > Ran the first time as root maybe?

    Probably. I recursively changed all files in that directory to user, so I hope that does the trick.
