Smile Transferring Opera bookmarks from Vista to Linux


Hi, I'm considering switching to linux (unsure of which at the moment) and wondered if there is any way of transferring opera bookmarks from Vista to linux.

Hi,

I do think that opera on both windows and linux use the opera6.adr file to store bookmark information (there's more in the file, but all is bookmark related). Just copy the file to the correct directory and all should be ok (tried this from linux to mac and it worked).

There's also an export (and import) function from within opera, you can also use this one.

Hope this helps.
