Opera upgrade to 10.62? [Resolved]

Post by PussyCat » Fri Sep 10, 2010 3:14 pm

Opera keeps nagging me to upgrade to 10.62 - currently 10.10 which is the version that shows up in Synaptic despite reloading.

Having downloaded 10.62 would it be an "offence" to install it?

I have had no issues installing Opera from the Opera website, however, YMMV! :wink:

If you don't want Opera "nagging" at you, you could've just added Opera's repo to your sources.list and be done with it. And you'll automatically get updated packages directly from Opera (through APT and mintUpdate) so you don't have to hunt then down and install them yourself.

Job done!

But, in my experience, Opera adds itself to the repos but new versions do not necessarilly show up in SPM even after reload - sometimes for a reason!
