it is faster, clearly, than than opera 12.16
but the convenience of 12.16's familiar features,
including enlarging a display, outweigh the raw
difference in speed. i don't have data usage issues
nor a slow connection. i'll try the image setting on
'low'. then i'll try it on a complex website or two.
do you have further thoughts on getting download
to work? thanks. cheers, mm

You can not compare the capabilities of this browser with the full features of any big browser. This is for quick general browsing and as said very useful if you have a slower connection and/or data is an issue. Don't know why you can't get downloads to work, you can try to set the saved pages folder in settings first.

hi nic007,

thanks for yr reply.

the 'saved pages' button offered a dialog box
where i might set a folder to save pages but
when i clicked 'set' that button flashed blue but
nothing happened. clicking cancel removed the
dialog box.

when i tried to enter my login details for this
forum to type the words above the login page
accepted them but when i clicked 'login'
nothing happened.

cheers, mm

You need to set the saved pages folder in settings > advanced > saved pages folder. I have no problem logging in here with Opera Mini. Remember to use the popup keyboard to enter digits (mouse-click the digit to enter).

same same at settings>advanced>saved pages folder:
dialog box; set folder button blue, does nothing when clicked;
cancel button blue, cancels operation.

at forum login, popup keyboard has no markings. blank keys.
they make a letter when clicked. i don't need numbers at login.
operamini still won't login.

cheers, mm

Your popup keyboard should be white with black letters/digits. When I go to the settings for the saved pages folder, I can choose where to save and just click select. It's very difficult to assist you further on this as I can't see your specific setup. The best I can do now is to make my full configuration available for download ie. my .microemulator folder in /root. So, if you are really intent on pursuing this further I can do that for you. Let me know.

Okay, attached the configuration for a "clean" setup. Unzip and replace your .microemulator folder in /root with this folder (rename it to .microemulator). The only thing you will probably need to change at first is the location of the root directory in the config2.xml file ( ie. the partition for your downloads, this one is set to /mnt/sda1). Do this before you run the application. You will also probably need to change the screen size. Run microemulator and start the browser and click maximize in the taskbar, close microemulator and restart it.

way too crazy-making.
yr micro zip
on this machine, running quirky 614
did not help, in fact made matters more
confusing, no place to resize, one
macroemulator file became two, in root,
of differing sizes, when i started operamini.
so thanks for yr help, and patience.
over and out. cheers, mm

I have the folder, and have followed the instructions as best I could.

On both ASUS and Sony the HTML page with the phone image and those little tests work.

But I cannot find that "attached script" you are supposed to download anywhere here or in the folder. So I cannot get the browser working.

Where is that script?

But I do not get that- just the HTML page; I never get that image with FILE and such options.

I am new to all of this, I'm afraid.

I dwnldd to /tmp, unpacked, then went into the resulting microemulator-2.0.4 folder.

From here simply rt-clk an empty area and "Window" >> "Terminal Here."

Now:
Code:
java -jar ./microemulator.jar ./apps/opera-mini-8.0.35158-advanced-en.jar

And you're IN!
