Opera link difficulties on 64bit Debian


I just installed Debian 64bit and Opera. I am fond of Opera because of its hierarchal bookmark layout and Opera link which maintains bookmarks over multiple computers.

My problem is that when I try to activate opera link on my new installation, the "next" button on a wizard page is off the bottom of the screen. The wizard page is not resizeable, so I can't continue. I have only 768 vertical pixels, which is part of the problem.

Point the mouse somewhere in the dialog window, press and hold the ALT key, then click and hold the left button (on a "right-handed" mouse), and you should be able to move the window to make the "Next" button visible.

Cool, texjunky!

Ztcoracat, Opera has been my go-to browser since v. 3 about a dozen years ago. It rocks.

Same here. I think I was using v. 3.12 on Win95.
