I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and i have tried on a number of occasions to download and install the Opera web browser using the .deb format. For some reason(s) unknown to me i can never find the file despite doing a search of the file system.
So i have now attempted to download and install the Opera web browser using the .tar.gz format.
I managed to get a .tar.gz file and placed it in my "Downloads" folder.
Now i opened a terminal and navigated to The Downloads folder which contained the .tar.gz file and then typed:
tar -zxvf opera-10.10.gcc4-shared-qt3.i386.tar.gz
A lot of text flew by on the screen and when i checked the Downloads folder it now contains the following:
Could someone take pity on a tired, baldy old git who only wants to use the latest version of the Opera browser please.
