Can't Install OPERA in Mint Debian

Post by wwoof » Fri Oct 29, 2010 1:24 am

I didn't find Opera in my repositories and downloaded it from the Opera website. I downloaded the ".deb" version but could not get it to install. Am I missing something? I was able to do this when I was using Mint 6 Gnome. :?

Any help greatly appreciated. Opera is my fave browser. Thanks.

Some good instructions are here: http://wiki.debian.org/Opera
In manually installing like you tried it mentions a missing dependency you will probably have to install.
Mint Cinnamon 19.3 Beta

To install Opera, I first installed gdebi, and then Opera. No dependency problems. :wink:

Are you saying that Opera installed but you can't fine Opera in the menus? Will it start if you go to a terminal window and type "opera" without the quotes?

Oh no, in my first post I said I downloaded Opera from Opera and that it was never included in my repositories. I couldn't install it and then installed gdebi which allowed me to install Opera. Everything is normal now.
