Please allow to modify the default search engine specs at Preferences

  • Version:		43.0.2442.1144 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream:	Stable
    System:			Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (x86_64; Unity)
    

    Please allow to modify the pre-offered default search engine specs at Edit > Preferences... > Browser > Search > Manage search engines..., since at the moment Opera is autodirecting me to Chinese (Taiwanese) websites for some reasons. It's just that..., I cannot speak Chinese 😉

  • See this FAQ

  • @leocg The FAQ you just posted, it's for Windows. I am running Linux Ubuntu, as stated in my opening post. 😛

    And Opera for Linux doesn't have such file?

  • If you mean directories and folders, yes, in Linux they are different from those of Windows,

  • If you mean directories and folders

    I mean the 'Local State' file.

  • In Linux, one has to first change the file browser to show hidden files (Files > Home > View > Show Hidden Files). I manage to localize the file in question from the following path:

    /home/xxxxxs/.config/opera/Local State
    

    However, this is a Suggestion Box for the development of the browser, isn't it? Therefore, it would be much easier and a lot more user friendly if one could just change the default search engine settings at Edit > Preferences... > Browser > Search > Manage search engines....

    Cheers!

  • Hi jayaguru-shishya, I'm having similar problem as yours, instead of Chinese, google goes to Spanish and I need it in English. do you mind explain to me the dir with xxxxxs? I assume it's your user name, but I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and I don't see this dir under home, but I do have a .config dir, but no opera under it, do you mind telling me what's the correct path for Ubuntu 16.04? Thanks.

  • @michaelbr Hi there! Have you enabled your file browser to show hidden files (Files > Home > View > Show Hidden Files)? 😛
