Problem with command line invocation specifying a local file as the URL

  • I am trying to display a local help file with a generated command. The first command line that I created:
    opera file:///home/rozen/page-dev/docs/html/index.html
    which worked fine except that I would like it to open in a new window.

    Looking at the man page, I tried the following command:
    opera --remote 'openURL(file:///home/rozen/page-dev/docs/html/index.html,new-window)'
    which produced the message: This site can’t be reached
    The content of the address window was:
    openurl%28file///home/rozen/page-dev/docs/html/index.html,new-window)
    I am very new to Opera and would appreciate any suggestions.

  • Try --new-window
