How to install Opera in Ubuntu

Some weeks ago a friend of mine asked me how she could install the Opera web browser in Ubuntu as she had problems installing it the regular way. After that I have gotten this question some more times, so I decided to make this little guide.

The Regular Way

  1. Download Opera for your machine from this site http://www.opera.com/browser/download
  2. Install it like any regular package :)
  3. Yey! Your finished!

The Alternative (Terminal) Way

My friend had problems with the regular way of installing Opera and I have heard that there are others with this problem. But you will still able to install it by using the terminal, and this is how you do it:

  1. Go to Software Sources (System > Administration > Software Sources)
  2. Then select the Third-Party Software tab
  3. Click on the [+ Add] button and add:deb http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable non-free
  4. Now open the terminal and write:wget -O - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
  5. sudo apt-get install debian-archive-keyring
  6. apt-get update
  7. sudo apt-get install opera
  8. Yey! You should now have Opera installed on your system ^^

I don’t use Opera myself so please tell me in a comment if these solutions doesn’t work for you. And as usual: Feel free to ask if you have any questions about the installation :)
