Edit: This Opera install is for 64 bit system only.

check to see if Opera is installed from Terminal:

Code: Select all

opera --version
If a version is listed, then remove it to start all over.

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg –remove opera-stable
This will install Opera and add it to your repository. Click the SELECT ALL to copy each command, one at a time.

From the Terminal:

Import the public signing key for Opera:

Code: Select all

wget -qO- https://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
Add the Opera browser repository to the system:

Code: Select all

echo "deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list
Update the repository index:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
Install the Opera browser using the apt command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y opera-stable

Obviously you have 32-bit systen?

Code: Select all

inxi -S
If yes, Opera can be installed the next way, but it can break your system.

Hi. I found this Ubuntu link.
They show some modified command options to Install Opera Browser and official repository from Terminal:
https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppa/opera

Code: Select all

wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera.list'
sudo aptitude update 
sudo aptitude install opera
Do you see this form correct?
To firs line works to me: Import the public signing key for Opera, I had to logged in Terminal with sudo password previously.

Edited: Ouhh. In nowadays is easy to install Opera Browser from downloaded .DEB package on Ubuntu Linux based system: http://deb.opera.com/
