installing 32bit opera after installed 64bit opera
So after i have found out that 64bit linux (i have debian etch) does not support 64bit opera flash/java..and (+other good) stuff i googled and googled and found nothing. respectively found that i should install 32bit opera where everything will work just fine.
So i have removed 64bit opera with apt-get remove opera(i have installed it usually with apt-get install opera), which looked like it has been removed (of course not the home .opera folder with settings)
so after that i have found nice guide on how to install 32 bit app with usage of 32bit libs. well followed that downloaded i386 deb package of opera_9.51.2061.gcc4.qt3_i386.deb. well everything went fine, i could run opera just fine. But when i go to help>about it says in browser identification: Opera/9.51 (X11; Linux x86_64; U; en) so that clearly looks that i still have 64bit. Well in spite of that i have tried to install flash plugin (because i thought that it would be something from the old settings folder..). so i have copied libflashplayer.so to .opera/plugin/ (not .opera folder is the same from old installation) like in instructions. but flash does not work :(
so now i dont know if i have still the 64bit version or what(could it be because of that .opera settings folder??)...pleease help, i like opera more over ff where i have installed flash successfuly.
thanks in advance, i am not very experienced user so i migth have overlooked something
When you installed this package with dpkg you should have had an error complaining that the architecture isn't correct.
This can be overcome by first installing ia32-libs and ia32-gtk-libs. The you should install your the i386 version with an architecture override:
I too am fed up with the Flash problems in Opera. Since Flash is not specifically written for Opera, and the Opera developers blame Flash for the problems they have I don't expect a solution anywhere soon.
The way I have got Opera64 to work with Flash is described in this thread .
Unfortunately from one day to the next Flash broke. I can sometimes watch videos, but after that Opera starts eating up 100% processor resources. Like described here.
