Installing Opera


I have a few questions.

I'm on Fedora 10. I haven't been able to find Opera on rpmfind.net or with yum. How can I install it then? Do I have to do it manually because that kind of defies the purpose of having a package manager! :-)

I have downloaded Opera and tried to install it manually but when I execute install.sh nothing happens.I also tried executing it from the Terminal which gave the following error:

Code:
/home/conor/Download/opera-9.64-2480.gcc4-shared-qt3.i386/install.sh: line 1756: cd: usr/share/icons/hicolor: No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/opera.png': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/opera.png': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `usr/share/icons/hicolor/22x22/apps/opera.png': No such file or directory
I have been trying to install this for a while so I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction!

Thanks

Have you tried downloading it fron the official website?

You can download the appropiate package from here: http://www.opera.com/browser/download/

You have to choose "Fedora 7, 8, 9, 10" from the list. Good Luck!

yes that's what i did and I got the above error when I ran install.sh

I really dislike installing programs like that though because whats the point of having a package manager if it's not managing your packages!? Is there another way to go about this, there are no rpms available as far as I know.

I don't have Fedora ... but I have Ubuntu and I got the .deb file from opera.com

I thought it would be as easy on Fedora too.

You could try doing an install using YUM.

Just download the .RPM file from the opera website. Just go here:

http://www.opera.com/browser/download/

And where it says "Select distribution and vendor" you should choose "Fedora". Then there should be 4 selections down a bit.

Fedora Core 4 8.5 MB
Fedora Core 3 8.2 MB
Fedora Core (Other versions) 10.3 MB
Fedora 7, 8, 9, 10 8.5 MB

Make sure you select the last one ("Fedora 7, 8, 9, 10") and press the download button.

Do NOT check "Download this package in TAR.GZ format"

After you get the .RPM file, place it in your home directory and fire up a terminal, give it root access with "su", browse to your home directory and enter one of the following commands:

Code:
rpm -Uvh filename.rpm
or

Code:
yum --nogpgcheck localinstall filename.rpm
to install Opera. Remember to replace filename.rpm with the name of the actual .RPM file.

Hope this works. Good Luck!
