A test install of Opera
9.10 9.20 to see if all is well on the Opera/Ubuntu Feisty compatibility front.
In this story flashplugin-nonfree, sun-java6-plugin and sun-java6-jre are installed, all available in the repositories of Ubuntu Feisty (universe multiverse).
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-jre
I used the Firefox browser, went to the Opera site and clicked the Download Opera Button.
- Selected Ubuntu Edgy Eft to install.
- Clicked Download Opera
- Let GDebi install the Package….
Opened Opera and Flash worked out of the box.🙂
Continuing with Setting up Opera:
For Java I went to:
- Selected the advanced tab,
- selected Content.
- Enable Java
- Select Java options
- Set up Java path; in my case
- Select Validate Java Path
It told me it was valid so clicked OK and was done.
Now a restart and also Java works now🙂
Opera is installed and all is well for Opera in the upcoming version of Ubuntu Feisty.
Unfortunately no longer works, as is said in the comments : Segmentation fault😦
Read Ubuntuforums.org for more information about this problem.
Opera works again, no more segfaults! (stable version is now 9.20)
