    You meant the Opera Browser right? If that so, you have to set the Opera Browser to your Default Browser. Try the Help menu on the browser.

    Since I was using Mozilla Firefox perhaps you should try this steps :

    Making Firefox Your Default Browser


    1.>Firefox displays web pages on the Internet and on your computer. To easily open web pages, you can make Firefox your default browser.


    2.>To make Firefox your default web browser, select Tools > OptionsEdit > PreferencesFirefox > Preferences and click the Check Now button in the General panel.

    3.>To reload a page at any time, click the Reload button in Firefox's Navigation Toolbar. Firefox then loadsand displays the latest version of the page.

    Hope this can help you...And hope Iím not make you confused...

    If you are using Gnome go to the Gnome Control Center and look at session properties. You will see a startup programs section where you can add applications. If you use KDE you can add a launch script in ~/.kde/Autostart where ~ is your home directory.

    You should be able to find it listed in your Gnome or KDE menu.

    I'm using Fedora 4 LTSP and I can't find it anywhere in Gnome.

    I don't run Gnome so can't guide you directly to it, but here's the section from the Gnome User Guide for Desktop Sessions:

    http://www.gnome.org/learn/users-gui.../sessions.html

    It should have what you need.

    That didn't help. However I just downloaded a patch to get the Control Centre, so I should have it working tomorrow. (should)

    Well it worked, thankfully. I now have it set up to open Opera in a kiosk mode.

    I did this by, installing the control centre, then running the session manager and adding the line of code: opera -k in the start up list.
    Now that I think about this It might have been possable o do without the control centre. Oh well. At least it works.
