Opera browser install


Want to upgrade to latest Opera browser, but get this response; Error: Dependency is not satisfiable libdus-1-3 (>=1.9.14) [from package install manager] Running Mate 17.03 'live". Just a side note...why doesn't Mint/Ubuntu 'package" Opera for install?
THANX
Rick

I'm guessing that Opera is therefore not in the repos?

The short answer is that you need to find and install the missing dependency, which may require finding and installing other dependencies, hence the term "dependency [heck]."

My opinionated answer is to eschew Opera and go with Vivaldi.

Here's some admittedly biased background. Bias towards truth is not an error. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/0..._gone_to_crap/

Opera was my go-to browser for over a decade, but I stopped using it when they ousted their founder and went to the Dark Side.

Not that I have strong opinions about this . . . .

Perhaps, I have misunderstood the above, but Opera is supported in Linux and .deb and .rpm packages are available from the Opera web site.
OTOH, I agree with Mr. Bell and would rather use Vivaldi.

Where did you get Opera from and how did you try to install it?

Downloading the deb package from Opera's website (https://www.opera.com/computer/linux) and installing it will add the Opera repository to your software sources.

Works fine for me anyway on Linux Mint 18.3.

Re: cwizardone

Perhaps we're having a debate in terminology. I'll try to clarify. Neither synaptic package mgr. nor Ubuntu/Linux software pkgs. provide support for D/l or install of Opera. Maybe I should have stated it that way? I understand that Linux can employ Opera if correct D/l pkgs are installed. Guess that was the way I should have stated.

Re: hydrurga

From the link you provided and cnet/downloads. Tried to install from both terminal and linux pkg.install mngr. Both ways kept coming up "problem with dependencies".

EVERYONE:

Here is something I don't get to do very often. I'm going to answer my own question. I found this and it worked. D/l latest Opera .deb (works for any .deb)
Open terminal > sudo gdebi > drag & drop .deb file > Enter...then watch/wait and activate (if necessary) any prompts. TOO EASY. And it worked (for me anyways). If you should need further instructions here's a link www.youtube.com/watch?v=nL_tiLbJ5t0
