Opera Does Not Work in 6.10 and KDE


Hi guys! My Opera browser is not working anymore in Ubuntu and KDE and its the only browser that I use. I tried removing and installing it but to no avail and before it completely went to exile there is an error message that says that opera plugin wrapper crashes all the time and I did not get this message when I am in KDE. How can I make it work again? I am a little desperate here because its the only one I use. Thanks.

Have you tried as a different username? I am not a KDE user but I used to get the same result when a ~/.opera/lock file existed, that is nothing at all... just no opera. Check for a lock file in your homedir. It would remain even after a re-install because your config files would remain.
Otherwise, did you install any new plugins?

cheers

In terminal type,
Code:
ls -la ~/.opera/lock
to see if it exists or if it is "file not found". If the file exists, remove it with the following command:
Code:
rm ~/.opera/lock
cheers
