Sync not working

  • I don't think I have Opera Mobile. I'm not mobile. All my laptops are used as desktop.
    My question is why my user name and password are not recognized on the Opera Linux.
    To synchronize I only know to go to the Opera menu and choose: Synchronize Opera.
    This open a windows saying: Welcome to Opera Link.
    Support above is telling me that Link is not supported anymore by Opera.
    What to do sync Opera = access my account on this Opera Linux version.

    I explained in detail my situation a couple of post above.

    Thanks.

    This is strange since Link no longer exists.

    What version of Opera are you using?

    Hello, did you get my reply to your question?
    This is the version number I downloaded from Opera 2 days ago.
    49.0.2725.39
    Thanks

  • @myopac Yes, I had read your previous reply.

  • Thank you.
    Any comment, suggestions?
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks for your help.

  • @myopac Did you try changing your password?

  • @leocg No but I installed another Ubuntu on another HD partition, re-downloaded the same Opera and tried a new way to install it manually.
    This opera is different than the one previously installed! The menu is on a bar on the top window while on the first one it's found a the first tab named Opera.
    I'm quite tired and do not ask you why but on this new Opera version, the way to access my account is different and my user email and password was recognized.
    I can access my bookmarks from Windows.
    Now I have a new issue and I read somewhere that you prefer to have another ticket open instead of keeping with this one for a slightly other topic.
    So let say i close this ticket and will open a new on. But I would still be curious to know why I have 2 different GUI for the same Opera version and if you can answer that I would be glad.

  • Are you sure you weren't using Opera Presto (Opera 12 and older)?

    I didn't notice the icon to attach document. ...

  • @myopac
    But that screenshot it´s from the Bookmarks not from the SpeedDial.

    In Bookmarks even the SpeedDial appears like that image.

    On the SpeedDial they look showing the first 4 bookmarks.

  • @zalex108
    Thanks to point this out.
    So perhaps my question should be: How to access my speed dial from my other opera that is what I get from my Bookmark page but with all the folders open instead of closed? Or formulated differently, how to sync my speed dial page?
    Thanks again.

  • @zalex108
    I also should note that this screen shot show a page found under the menu speed dial as shown on the attached file.0_1513519731575_speed dial.png

  • @zalex108
    Ok Found out by manually re installing all the folders into the Speed Dial.
    Let me know if there is a quicker way but at least this one works.

  • Then,
    The only way I know it's V7 Bookmarks extension.
    Works as a SideBar extension and you can expand all folders.

    Opera treats each SD devices as a single SpeedDial, you'll need to copy them if want to use the same SD on every device.

  • @zalex108 Thank you. I found out that we have to copy the SD folders from the sync computer into the SD of this computer.
    It works well even without the extension V7 you suggest. I installed it but for now no need, maybe later.
    So to sum up, you gave me the right thing to do = copy the SD folders from the sync computer into the SD of the other computer.
    Thanks for your care and patience. Very much appreciated. Opera and its support Rocks 🙂

    By the way any clue on how to remove the massive Google bar that seat above the SD? I looked for long time but can't find out.

  • @myopac You can hide start page's search box in settings. Enabling advanced settings may be necessary.

  • @leocg Thanks a lot Leo for pointing this out!! I really had enough of these Google's eye looking at me 😉

  • @myopac

    FYI.
