Changing Google Search Default Country

    Hi

    I am running the Elementary linux distribution and the latest version of Opera for Linux.

    I first installed Opera when I was over in Thailand and therefore it picked up google.co.th as the default google search engine. I do however spend 90% of my time in Australia and would prefer English results, either google.com or google.com.au.

    Where would I find the appropriate file to change on the linux system?

    There does not seem to be a way of changing this through settings. It only allows you to select from the various major search engines.

    Regards Matt

    See the FAQ, even if that is posted in the Windows forum.

      Read the FAQ. I edited the local state file, tried to save it, but it never saves. Must be permissions issue with Linux.

        Tried it giving myself full permissions and it still reverted to TH.

        Opera is closed when you edit the file?
