Transferring Data and DRM

  • Hi All,

    Question 1. How do you transfer your bookmarks, speed dial and settings from opera 27 stable (linux) to opera-developer 29 (linux) using the command line?
    Question 2. Can you watch drm restricted content using opera (linux)? I watch drm restricted content on firefox.
    My current distro is fedora 21 and computers arevi5's with 8GB of memory.
    Cheers Fred108

  • It's not DRM per se which would be a problem. Opera does not include any restricted codecs (for example, H.264 or MPEG) since they couldn't afford the necessary fees to distribute them. Somewhere in this forum is a discussion of rebuilding libffmpeg to include those codecs. But if you had say a page that used Flash to display a video that has DRM and you have the latest "pepper Flash" installed then it doesn't matter which browser you're using it in.

    Opera-stable and opera-developer both have folders in ~/.config/ so you should be able to copy files, but I haven't actually tried that yet.

  • Question 1: Run this command:

    cp ~/.config/opera/{Bookmarks,Preferences,favorites.db} ~/.config/opera-developer/
    

    Then restart opera developer.

  • Hi,
    Thanks for the replies. Much appreciated. Question 1 & 2 solved.
    Cheers fred108
