Chropera seems to behave a little bit better than Chrome/ium

Posted 01-27-2015 at 05:05 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 01-27-2015 at 05:09 PM by the dsc

Just pointing out just in case someone finds oneself annoyed by Chrome/ium seemingly entering in neverending loops and reading or writing who-knows-what in the HDD for too long. I have the impression that the new Opera behaves somewhat better in this regard, but I really haven't used it as much, so could be just a matter of time until it hangs just as much.

Unfortunately, however, the new GUI is still somewhat like just a crippled Chrome GUI -- scrolling the wheel over the tab-bar...

Bash conversion of Opera sessions to "netscape standard" bookmarks

Posted 06-11-2014 at 03:34 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

You run it on the session folder (.win files, usually on ~/.opera/sessions/), and it will generate a single html file with all the bookmarks (taken from the last visited URL for any given tab in that session, hence the file/variable "lasturl" -- the session files record some "history", but this isn't being exported/converted here), and coded "subfolders" for each session file, with the filenames as titles. Every time it runs it rewrites this generated html file....

Installation problem with Opera on HP-2133 running Ubuntu 12.04

Posted 05-24-2013 at 11:04 PM by flshope

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, a small laptop. Gradually I have been installing the applications software that I use on my desktops. Today, I installed the Opera browser, but with considerable difficulty. As of this date, the current stable version of Opera is 12.15.

Email disaster with Opera, Plan B: Thunderbird

Posted 12-30-2012 at 09:38 AM by flshope

After loosing my email history to some failure associated with the Opera email client, I have not yet decided to attempt a recovery using Opera. If it happened once, it will happen again. I prefer Opera as a browser, but I have soured on its email client.

So, as I mentioned previously, I decided to implement Thunderbird as my primary email client. Thunderbird has some official status with Ubuntu in the sense that it is a part of the standard Ubuntu installation and they provide reliable...

Email disaster with Opera

Posted 12-08-2012 at 08:11 PM by flshope

I do my email using Opera. Opera is fast as a browser and it's convenient to open web links from emails in the same application.

A few days ago, I had an email disaster. I had just switched from internet work to email only to find, much to my horror, that all my current and previously stored emails had disappeared. Somewhat surprisingly, Opera's email client continued to work normally in terms of downloading and manipulating new emails. I had not been backing up the .opera directory....
