this opera is giving me a headache


i have tried the package manager i have tried in terminal
Code:
root@boxer:~# apt-get install opera
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package opera is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package opera has no installation candidate
does that mean i cant have opera on ubuntu breezy??????? if i can how do i get it.

1. Go to the Opera website and download the Ubuntu .deb to your desktop. Then rename the file to be opera.deb.

In a terminal, type this in
Code:
cd Desktop
sudo dpkg -i opera.deb
Type in your password, and an install wizard will appear.

2. The repositories are quite extensive, though, especially if you enable extra repositories.

After you do that, you can
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install opera-static
I'd advise method #2, of course.

Edit: Never mind. I don't think #2 will work. I thought opera-static was in the repositories because it showed up in my Synaptic search, but I think it was put there because I installed it using #1.

ok i tried it the second way first cause i already had all repos multi uni and all and i got
Code:
Reading package lists... Done
boxerboy@boxer:~$ sudo apt-get install opera-static
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package opera-static
so with that not working i tried it the first way renamed it opera.deb and got this
Code:
boxerboy@boxer:~$ cd Desktop
boxerboy@boxer:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i opera.deb
Selecting previously deselected package opera-static.
(Reading database ... 107951 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking opera-static (from opera.deb) ...
Setting up opera-static (8.02-20050727.1) ...
than it left me at the commandline ~desktop so heres what happened
Code:
boxerboy@boxer:~/Desktop$ opera
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
however the installer came up and asked if i agreed and i yesed it and than here you go with the final stuff i got
Code:
Opera encountered a problem during plug-in setup.
Plug-ins will not work properly.
Check your installation.

Could not start plug-in executable 'operamotifwrapper'.
/home/boxerboy/.mozilla/plugins/operamotifwrapper-3
Please install Motif.

Plug-in path
(Path can be modified in Preferences dialog)

/usr/lib/opera/plugins
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
/home/boxerboy/.mozilla/plugins
i dont know what the hell a motif is nor where to find it or get it and if thats all i need where do i find it?

Are you launching Opera from the terminal and the errors appear in terminal? Or does a new dialogue box pop up when you use the run command to launch Opera?

To create an applications menu for it, you need SMEG. You can also just add a panel launcher by right-clicking on the panel and selecting "add launcher to panel" and using the command opera.

http://ubuntuguide.org/#extrarepositories
http://ubuntuguide.org/#menu-editor

In Breezy, SMEG comes with the regular installation.

P.S. Are these the "errors" you're getting?
Code:
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libjvm.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libawt.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.

What libs? Try the launcher thing. I don't think you should get any errors.

This howto was written for Hoary but it should work just as well for Breezy:
Ubuntu Forums - HOWTO: Install Opera in Ubuntu Hoary

Motif or Openmotif should be in Synaptic.
