Opera web browser


Hello,

I have recently installed the Opera web browser via Yast and every thing works great. I then imported the bookmarks from my windows version of Opera via the import function of Opera, everything worked and I now have my bookmarks in my Linux version YEA. The problem is that Opera does not have a function to import the password file "wand.dat" I have copied this file from my windows version and placed it on the Gnome desktop Suse 10.2, but I cannot find where Yast placed this program! Opera tells me it is located in "home/greg/.opera/" and yet Nautilus cannot find this .opera folder.

So after this long winded description all I want to do is copy the "wand.dat" from desktop and place it in my opera folder but I cant find the darn folder.

Any help for this Noob will be greatly appreciated.

In Nautilus, use the option to view hidden files, any file or folder preceded by a full stop (or period) is hidden. you could also do (in a console)
Code:
mv /path/to/wand.dat /home/greg/.opera

Ahaa...Very good I'll try this tonight

Boy do I need to keep studying the linux file and command structure, well a little bit at a time and I'll eventually get it!

Thank you XavierP

No problem - have a look at Rute (link in my signature) and also see http://www.linuxcommand.org/index.php

We all go through this
