Guys!! Opera Won't Play Clips on YouTube - HELP!!
I cannot view YOUTUBE clips in Opera... In my frustration, I found the following "proper" instructions to install Opera and Flash Player but I received errors. I hope you guys can tell me what I did wrong and correct me:

I downloaded opera 9.25 to my desktop and then I untared it (I guess, "unzipped" it in layman's terms) to the desktop. When I untared it, 3 files spewed out onto the desktop which are: control.tar.gz, data.tar.gz, and debian-binary. I then opened up a terminal by pressing alt and F2. I entered "sudo ./" then pressed run. Nothing happened. I then went to Applications and got a terminal that way and entered the same command. I got the following error:

x@xxx:~$ sudo ./
sudo: ./ command not found

OK, what am I doing wrong?

As a side note, I went to Synaptics and I clicked on "Third-Party Software", then clicked "Add". Then, I entered "deb gutsy partner" (without quotes), and clicked Reload. I saw Opera in Synaptics but I didn't install it yet because I want to see if the above option works first.

Please, HELP GUYS!!!

Go ahead and install Opera via Synaptics.

Then download the Adobe Flash installer here:

Download the tar.gz file and follow the tar.gz instructions there.

Hope you get it working.
