On the address bar, type:

Code:
opera:config
Select Bittorrent, then uncheck "enable"

Now you know it. In fact, opera:config is a place to start hacking Opera

Another method is going to Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Downloads, then find application/x-bittorrent and set it to "Save to disk" instead of "Open with Opera"

I dont think so, it is standard scheme:

I think it depends on version. At least my Opera doesnt have the torrent entry in the Download section

Another way to disable built-in torrent client is to edit the

~/.foo/opera6.ini

foo could be either native Opera or Linux-opera, then search for "torrent", change from 1 to 0

But I reakon the quickest way is to use the Preference editor

I'm pretty sure this works for all versions of Opera, since I have always used this method to disable the built-in bittorrent support.

Hmm Im quite sure it doesnt, but my Opera installation wasnt fresh, all the configuration files of my current BSD box are inherited, first from the Windoze, then Linux box.

Lol Im a bloody lazy bastard

Is the little Text Box that says Hide File Types Opened with Opera check, if so uncheck it and it should appear.

No, we introduced opera:config in Opera a long time after. Both are very different, too.
