Opera 10.60, Slackware 13.1 x86_64


Hey all,

I'd very much like to try the new Opera 10.60, so I've downloaded the slackbuilds.org build script for Opera 10.10, but I've not yet managed to tweak it so it works with 10.60.

Have anybody here managed it? And if you have, would you mind telling me what you did?

Robby Workman updated and submitted the slackbuild to Slackbuilds.org, but in case it's not up there yet and you can't wait (like I couldn't), here it is: http://www.hydronitrogen.com/wp-cont...7/opera.tar.gz Download it from one of the urls from the .info just to make sure it works.

All credit goes to Robby Workman.

Awesome!

Thanks. I'm now running Opera 10.60, and it is nice.

Anyone else seeing screen artefacts when scrolling using the mouse wheel in opera?

Filling the LQ "quick reply" box with text and scrolling it up and down seems to be the most reliable way of reproducing it on my box.

I've tried it with both VESA and Nvidia binary drivers, also under both kde and openbox DEs. Doesn't make a difference.

If I understand correctly what you are seeing, Opera 10.5x on Windows has the same glitches.
For 10.60 on Slackware, I am seeing slow scrolling and the UI is awful in KDE. 10.60 does not seems to be that good :-(

I've attached an example shot:

Interestingly, I installed it on my fedora13 32bit play partition and it seems to work fine there.

I don't know whether it's a 32/64bit thing, or just some Xorg library that isn't quite compatible for some reason. It's a shame. I've always liked Opera, especially the email client.

I'm not seeing any artifacts when scrolling. It works just fine. This on Slackware 13.1 x86_64, KDE 4.4.4.

I downloaded the package directly from Opera's web site and it runs perfectly well in both Xfce and KDE with an Ati graphics card and the generic radeon driver.

Here opera 10.60 runs nicely. I had an awful bold shadow under typed addresses dropdown list in opera which i got rid of by launching opera with '-noargb' switch. It seemed to improve tabbar tooltips animation too. That is with nvidia prop. driver under kde4 with desktop effects on. Also, i ditched kmail in favor of operas builtin mail client, having about 3000 messages in inbox doesn't seem to slow it down a bit - neither kmail, to be fair.

For some reason i cannot see apple.com videos in opera though they are playing fine in firefox with mplayer-plugin.

Concerning toolkits which are used to draw gui elements in opera, here's a tip on how to change them. Maybe solves some gui issues for some:

Thanks veeall, Neither of those seem to sort out the issue I'm having with it but it's useful information all the same.
