RE: Opera's pioneering featuresLounge
I bumped into someone who was quite a zealous Firefox fan, rather rabid really, and was quite confident that Firefox was the first to support CSS. It made me giggle a little and reminded me of this thread.
I seem to recall that CSS was first supported in Opera but not completely. IE beat Opera to the gun with getting 100% support. Anyhow, that was a while ago and I dug out some links for 'em and showed them some dates. They also were really certain that Firefox had done tabs first. I don't think Opera was the first to do tabs but they were really close to it.
I should have saved the links. Oh well... The guy who worked on CSS also worked with Opera before or after that. I don't recall which. There's a not-so-good version history on Wikipedia that I remember finding while digging. There's some information there that might be of interest but it doesn't seem to be complete.
RE: How to fix video playback problems with Opera 32 on Linux [Tutorial]Opera for Linux
I use Opera V32.0.1948.69 on PCLinuxOS_x64 (A Mandrake fork). I had the same problem with Opera not playing html5 video files.
I went to follow dimigianna's advice, only to find that libffmpeg.so.32 was already present in the /usr/lib/opera/lib/ directory...
How do I get Opera to recognise it ?
Are you 100% sure the version isn't a higher version? I've not used Mandrake much but I used to use it when it was Mandriva, I've not used the fork at all except to try the Live environment and see if they'd come very far with it.
Anyhow, my suggestion would be to update Opera, grab the appropriate latest package from Chromium, and move and rename if needed. That's where I'd start, at least. <_<
RE: New Opera beta 34Future releases
But, we know you’re not interested in the technical details and we’re not either.
What would make you think that? :awww: That's absolutely something I'd be interested in. However, I'm assuming much of it is proprietary and not going to be shared with me. I do, conceptually, understand compression techniques and predictive modeling, so I strongly suspect that the parts I'd be interested in are quite likely to not be the parts shared. But, rest assured, I'm (for one) very interested in the technical details. I find stuff like that fascinating.
Anyhow, "Darek" is a mason, judging by the hammer he's carrying. But, if anyone else is curious, there's a White Paper about Turbo located here.
It doesn't get into the technical details either. I am on the road and often using my home computer by way of VNC. I've already got some compression and being able to compress it a bit more is always interesting. Thus my interest in the subject.
If there are some non-proprietary bits you'd like to share... Well, I'm all ears. :sherlock: I do wish I could use Turbo with SurfEasy installed BUT not turned on. If SurfEasy is installed and enabled Turbo doesn't work, of course. However, even if it is installed but not turned on then it doesn't work. At any rate, no complaints with the beta build. It's stable as a rock, it usually is.
RE: Can I get a copy of Opera 29 for Mac... Corrupt Session file...Opera for Mac
I'll add this to the list:
RE: Remove word from dictionaryOpera for Linux
Thanks for that, kgiii.
(You won't or at least shouldn't need sudo in your own home directory.)
No problem. Glad to have helped and no, you shouldn't need elevated permissions but I figured I'd mention it. I've been on a least privilege kick for a little while (I hang out on the AskUbuntu site a bit as well as StackExchange/Overflow and Unix) and it's kind of become a habit. I see people who will suggest stuff like
sudo nano ~/bash_historyand quietly edit it out. This stuff is meant to last forever, I guess.
Anyhow, I should write some sort of extension for this. It'd be nice if Opera opened up access to their sync servers. I'd then write an extension to sync the darned dictionary.
I use leafpad ~/.config/opera/"Custom Dictionary.txt" to edit. Quotes are required due to the space in the file name. Or... leafpad ~/.config/opera-beta/"Custom Dictionary.txt"
I suppose you probably already know all of this but someone might come along afterwards and not know. sighs It's that writing for AU that's made me do it! Who knows? The next person to come along might want to know. Hmm... You could probably alias it, if you used it often enough to warrant adding it to the list.
RE: Remove word from dictionaryOpera for Linux
It is in your Custom Dictionary.txt file located in here:
Well, probably not "kgiii" for you but you get the idea. You can edit it without gksudo or sudo.
I use a lot of different computers and use cron to push a copy to my dropbox folder and then pull it down and it's automagically inserted into the appropriate folder ~/.config/opera (or beta, or dev).
