Contacts icon & Skin.ini in older Opera M2

  • Hello ,

    Can I put this file to the Cloud service & sync across all my different laptops so that they can have same set of "icons" I assigned to my contacts ?

    " skin.ini "

    I mean I will do this now & put this to Cloud is okay ?
    You extract the skin, add/remove/replace the icons that are in the "contacts" folder, edit skin.ini and change the ContactN lines towards the bottom to point to the new icon filenames, edit the title of the skin at the top of skin.ini, save, zip up skin.ini and all the folders next to it into a zip file, place the zip file in the "skin" directory in your Opera roaming profile directory, start opera and select your customized skin.

    Thank you very much.

    Location of the skin's file (that have packed skin.ini inside) can be changed though the parameters:

    opera:config#UserPrefs|SkinDirectory (path for your skins collection)

    opera:config#UserPrefs|ButtonSet (current or active skin)

  • Thanks stng !

    SO that I can put the skin folder like this in cloud

    Rest Opera copies from various computers point them here is okay ?

    So that every Opera copies have the same set of contact icons I build ?

    Thank you very much.

  • Hi stng ,

    What could be wrong to my custom M2 contacts.ico not showing working during I want to assign to some of my contacts.

    I used to do this couple of years was okay.

    I made some 16x16 icon

    I renamed them from the .ini files

    I tried put them in cloud folder or back to original folder both no work, it gives me back same old default contact icon set.

    What have I done wrong ?

    Thank you very much.
