can't run Opera Mini simulator on OS X

  • I'm trying to use the Opera Mini Simulator at http://www.opera.com/developer/opera-mini-simulator to test websites on OS X.

    In either Chrome's or Firefox's (current, stable/release version of each) add-ons manager, I have the Java Applet Plug-in 14.9.0 installed and enabled.

    In Terminal, I can confirm I have Java on my system:

    which java --> /usr/bin/java

    java -version --> java version "1.6.0_65"

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_65-b14-462-11M4609)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.65-b04-462, mixed mode)

    But when I hit http://www.opera.com/developer/opera-mini-simulator I just see "Missing Plug-in."

    Why doesn't this work? I guess it's required to have MicroEMU on the client system as well? Opera's link to MicroEMU goes to a domain-park page; I found it on https://code.google.com/p/microemu/downloads/detail?name=microemulator-2.0.4.zip and put it in my path (/usr/local/bin), but that didn't solve it.

  • How did you start microemulator?

    Do you have the latest jar file of Opera Mini?

    Go to http://www.opera.com/mobile/download/versions/ select your Opera Mini version, hitw View Downloalink, download opera-mini-latest-advanced-en.jad and opera-mini-latest-advanced-en.jar.

    May be you will use http://mini.opera.com/download-7/opera-mini-latest-advanced-en.jad?no_redir&ismobile=false and http://mini.opera.com/download-7/opera-mini-latest-advanced-en.jar?no_redir&ismobile=false for latest Opera Mini 8.

    On my emu only 7.1 worked.

    Did you store the opera-mini-7.1.32052-advanced-en.jar and ...jad (or newer) into microemulator's subfolder /apps?

    1. In Shell with java -jar microemulator.jar
    2. After start of micromeulator select File -> Open Midlet file
    3. Select opera-mini-7.1.32052-advanced-en.jar
    4. Select Start in Opera Mini emulated phone
    5. Opera Mini should start now
