Installation problem with Opera on HP-2133 running Ubuntu 12.04

Posted 05-24-2013 at 11:04 PM by flshope

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my HP 2133 Mini-note PC, a small laptop. Gradually I have been installing the applications software that I use on my desktops. Today, I installed the Opera browser, but with considerable difficulty. As of this date, the current stable version of Opera is 12.15. Opera is not an application that Ubuntu offers from its repository; so installation is not just a matter of running the Software Center (SC) and clicking on an install button, since Opera does not appear...

Email disaster with Opera, Plan B: Thunderbird

Posted 12-30-2012 at 09:38 AM by flshope

After loosing my email history to some failure associated with the Opera email client, I have not yet decided to attempt a recovery using Opera. If it happened once, it will happen again. I prefer Opera as a browser, but I have soured on its email client.

So, as I mentioned previously, I decided to implement Thunderbird as my primary email client. Thunderbird has some official status with Ubuntu in the sense that it is a part of the standard Ubuntu installation and they provide reliable...

Email disaster with Opera

Posted 12-08-2012 at 08:11 PM by flshope

I do my email using Opera. Opera is fast as a browser and it's convenient to open web links from emails in the same application.

A few days ago, I had an email disaster. I had just switched from internet work to email only to find, much to my horror, that all my current and previously stored emails had disappeared.

opera 9.64 on gentoo x86_64, libqt-mt.so.3 and other issues

Finally I've managed to set this up.
Putting my experience here, hoping it will help someone and would be on top of google results.

There are reasons for me to keep 9.64 instead of using 10.x versions. The one reason is that opera 9.64 is somehow more secure, since, most users usually upgrade to newer version (since opera is not windows/linux-bundled) and newer versions look nicely. I don't need new functionality that is bundled with 10.x tree, the other reason for why I'm...
