Where should I place the native messaging host manifest file in Linux

  • Somehow I can't get the Native Messaging API working in Opera 24 for Linux.

    I guess the place for the host manifest file should be (user level install):
    ~/.config/opera-developer/NativeMessagingHosts/

    but that doesn't work:
    Failed to connect: Specified native messaging host not found.

    It does work in Chrome and Chromium mutatis mutandi.

    The docs seem outdated:
    http://dev.opera.com/extensions/tut_message_passing.html

    Any idea what's wrong?
