@Det – yeah, it does work on other distro’s like this. I dropped it in on a fresh Ubuntu with fresh Google Chrome installed, into /opt/google/chrome/extensions, and as soon as I opened up Chrome it appeared 🙁 Went through that FAQ, and still in the same position. Any other ideas as to what may be going on, or how I can dig deeper to see where Chrome may be looking?

I dunno? Rename your settings dirs (~/.cache/google-chrome/, ~/.config/google-chrome/), start in incognito, swap between the /usr/bin launcher and the one from /opt/google/chrome/ directly, extract the .deb and put the extension there, or try copying *all* the contents to /opt/google/chrome/, use “–enable-logging –v=1” (https://www.chromium.org/for-testers/enable-logging), etc.

You should add xdg-utils to deps like chromium.
