I can't install the Opera browser


I have downloaded the latest Opera browser and placed it in a folder called 'Opera'
It was tarball. I expanded it correctly.

I have tried in vain to install it.

I don't understand the problem. Could you help me? I logged in as a root user and changed into the 'Opera' folder.

It expanded beautifully. The following shows you all the files.
The name of the downloaded file is --> opera-7.54-20040803.5-shared-qt.i386-en.tar.gz

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In order to install I wrote the following and pressed enter.

I got the following message.

You need to be in the same directory as install.sh when you run it.

Try that.

You are on the right track.

I moved into that directory. The following shows:

root@h27n2fls301o1037 Opera]# cd opera-7.54-20040803.5-shared-qt.i386-en/
[root@h27n2fls301o1037 opera-7.54-20040803.5-shared-qt.i386-en]#

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Afterwards I wrote the install command and pressed enter.
[root@h27n2fls301o1037 opera-7.54-20040803.5-shared-qt.i386-en]# ./install.sh

Files will be installed as follows:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Wrapper Script : /usr/bin
Binaries : /usr/lib/opera/7.54-20040803.5
Plugins : /usr/lib/opera/plugins
Shared files : /usr/share/opera
Documentation : /usr/share/doc/opera
-----------------------------------------------------------

I just wrote y and pressed enter and got the following message:

I just wrote y and pressed enter and got the following message. Nothing has happened. It just accepted the command.


[root@h27n2fls301o1037 opera-7.54-20040803.5-shared-qt.i386-en]#

What shall I do now? How do I install the Opera browser? Please help me.

Finally I was succeded. Now it is working. I went into the 'bin' subfolder. It is inside the 'Opera' folder. I found the correct file there and double clicked it.

It is working.
