I have a quick follow-up to the discussion about Opera V60 import all settings to new Mint installation that I marked as solved.
I find I have one additional question about importing those Opera settings. As noted in that discussion, I am planning to set up a new full installation of Linux Mint 19.1 on a USB SSD drive, and want to be able to import all of my current Opera settings to the new installation. I currently run Mint from a full install on a USB thumb drvie and have been using Opera there.
The advice I got from gm10
is what I think I am going to do.gm10 wrote: ⤴Tue Oct 15, 2019 12:17 pmEither keep your entire /home folder and thus all your settings for all apps, or back up at least your Opera settings folder:
~/.config/opera/(may be called
opera-developeror similar depending on your installed opera release) and restore it to the same location in the new install.
My question - which is probably pretty obvious to most - do I download a copy of Opera and then restore the .config/opera file or do I just copy the .config/opera file into the .config folder without downloading Opera first? I wasn't sure if that folder would actually recreate the program itself, or if it just recreates my settings, bookmarks, etc.
Thanks for a little more guidance on this - I appreciate it! This is all a learning experience, and I am just not sure of that part of this process.
