Opera- Ubuntu package
 
Hi I've just downloaded the Opera browser in.deb Ubuntu format.
I know how to install on the command line with .tgz and .gz
How do I install this? Can I use Synaptic?
Thank you.

Code:

dpkg -i whatever.deb

Probably sudo dpkg -i opera-static_8.02-20050727.1-qt_en_i386.deb.
I did happen to notice Opera in the repositories, but maybe it's because I've enabled extra ones?. In any case, you'd better install it quickly while the ad-free registration is free (you've still got a couple of hours).

Thanks for the code, but, I get authentication failure. Thas is, when I navigate to the directory where the .deb package is and try to run it it asks for super user password. I've only got one password on the system but, it doesn't work. When I run Synaptic my password works.

Did you try sudo dpkg -i opera-static_8.02-20050727.1-qt_en_i386.deb? The password should be your user password, the same you use for Synaptic.

So if you type dpkg -i opera-static_8.02-20050727.1-qt_en_i386.deb, you should get this as a response:

dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privilege

If you type this:

sudo dpkg -i opera-static_8.02-20050727.1-qt_en_i386.deb

You should get this response:

Password:

This is the same as the Synaptic password.

Okay that worked, but, where does it install to? It didn't put an icon on my menu anywhere.
I tried the whereis command, couldn't find it.
Thanks.

What do you mean find the package? Do you mean the launcher? Or do you mean the .deb you downloaded?

I've got it figured out thank you. When I ran the install command (sudu) at the shell prompt for the .deb package it set everything up for me. However when I went to look for an icon to click on to launch Opera 8.02 I couldn't find it. I found the script to launch the application in /bin and created an icon for it on my tool bar. Also entered my activation code to get rid of ads.
Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

Glad it all worked out for you.

I'm actually very impressed with Opera 8.02. It is blazingly fast. I still use FF as my main browser on my Linux boxes, but, Opera is indeed impressive. The only thing that stopped me before from using it was the dang ads in Opera.
Very nice browser.:D
Thanks again for your help.

Ubuntu Forums - HOWTO: Install Opera in Ubuntu Hoary

This is the install instructions for the Opera Internet Suite

This installs Opera, adds a menu icon and changes the default file handler from kexec to gnome-open.

Thanks, I'll keep this for future reference for the next time I install Opera. Much appreciated.:D
