Saw that.., but couldn't believe that this is really the way to do this,
given the simple method involved for Gnome-1.

Thanks for that.., Tell me though.., I've already got linux-opera-6.12
installed here. What is the best (read cleanest) way to remove this
version and install linux-opera-7?
I'm asking because I had some issues with uninstalling one version of an
app and reinstalling a later version in the past.., Particularly where
it comes to shared dependencies (operamotif) et al.
Can I take it for granted that where you mentioned on freebsdforums
(http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/showthread.php?s=9b43787a1839c584946536fd1f20f2f3&threadid=8714) that the plugins "just worked" for you.., this was indeed referring to Macromedia Flash (which version, by the way?) and Acrobat Reader?
Thanks again for taking the time.
