Install Opera 69 on Fedora 32/31, CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL) 8/7 - Comment Page: 1

This is guide, howto install or update Opera 69.0.3686.57 browser on Fedora, CentOS and Red Hat (RHEL). This works on Fedora 32/31/30, CentOS 8.2/7.8 and Red Hat (RHEL) 8.2/7.8. Check Opera Browser features >> Opera does not, unfortunately, currently offer repositories where Opera could be installed and keep up to date neatly. So the only option is to download the required RPM package directly from Opera's servers and install it directly with the dnf/yum command. 1. Download Opera Browser 69 cd /tmp wget https://download3.operacdn.com/pub/opera/desktop/69.0.3686.57/linux/opera-stable_69.0.3686.57_amd64.rpm 2.

    1. Hi, I noticed that the old opera logo is used on the page. Would you consider updating it. It can also make the site look more attractive to new visitors.
      You can get the new opera logos here: http://www.opera.com/press/resources/

        I hope that you get your Opera goodie bag! ;D

    3. Hi plp, I installed the latest version of Opera (11.50) on RHEL 6.1 but java plugin (openjdk) isn’t working. In opera:plugins it gets correctly listed, and the plugin works on firefox (3.6.x, which came along).

      Any ideas? How can I provide further info (opera console)?

      • Hi Daniel,

        I tested also Java and it’s not working default even about:plugins shows it.

        Try following (as root):

        
        cd /usr/lib/opera/plugins
        
        ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.7.0/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so
        

        You have to specify your real Java path it. Here I use Java JDK 7, but if you have example Java JRE 6u26 then path looks like following /usr/java/jre1.6.0_26/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so and so on…

    6. Thanks Dimka,

      First I have to ask do you have nVidia graphics card and use nVidia drivers?

      Could you also post output of following commands, after operapluginwrapper-native was killed by signal 11:

      
      grep -i opera ~/.xsession-errors
      
      grep -i opera /var/log/messages

        • Hi again Dimka,

          Looks like bug on Opera with Gnome 3.2. Should be fixed on Opera 11.60 final (build 1185), but I’m not sure is it, because you use Opera 11.60 and it still exists…could you post some link to flash content where it crash? So I can try it myself. :)

    7. Hi!
      I’m not using Gnome, i’m using KDE.
      Now i’m at work, but later i will send some links.
      Also i mentioned that crashes also happen when i’m closing opera tab’s with flash content.

      Thank you for your help.

      • Oh, you are using KDE, could you test, is Konqueror working normally on same sites?

        Thanks, I test those links with opera-11.60-1185.x86_64 and flash-plugin-11.1.102.55-release.x86_64 on Fedora 16 with nVidia graphics and with Intel graphics, just in case… :)

          • Hi Dimka,

            This is strange problem, and it is some bug in Opera, because flash works ok with other browsers, I can reproduce operapluginwrapper crash easily with Opera+Flash on those sites. I check some Opera blog posts and looks like they have added to /usr/share/opera/defaults/plugin-ignore.ini file following content to prevent some flash problems:

            
            [Plugins to Ignore]
            npwrapper.libflashplayer.so = NSPluginWrapper for Flash 
            

            I just tried to comment that row out and restart Opera and then I didn’t got any crash on quick testing. I’m not really sure is this fixing it, but you could try following, open /usr/share/opera/defaults/plugin-ignore.ini file and modify it to looks like following (comment out npwrapper… row):

            
            [Plugins to Ignore]
            ;npwrapper.libflashplayer.so = NSPluginWrapper for Flash 
            

            Then restart your browser and try again those sites. Is it still crashing? :)

            Reply
            • Yeap, still crashing =)

              Reply
              • Ok, I tried reload those pages several times, but it doesn’t crash, but then this doesn’t solve operapluginwrapper problem… :/

                One thing what you could do is fill Opera bug report here. It is really strange why Opera 11.60 and Flash 11 works on Fedora 15 normally, but crash sometimes on Fedora 16.

                • ok, anyway i’m very grateful for your help. Thanks!

                  • You are very welcome Dimka, I am sorry that the problem was not resolved, but maybe bug report to Opera developers solve this problem some next Opera version… :)

    10. I also get the “operapluginwrapper was killed” message. On my system it appears completely unrelated to flash. I am running fedora 16 with the lxde desktop. Once I launch opera, it tries to put opera into the system tray, and the kill message seems related to that. Even if the Opera icon remains in the system tray, clicking on it does nothing. However the Opera application itself continues to run and appears to function normally.

      In addition there seems to be some sort of system tray collision between Opera and gdesklets. After launching Opera, the two gdesklets that I have running on my desktop (an analog clock and 5-day weather forecast) disappear from my desktop, and I can’t restart them.

    11. Looking at /var/log/message relating to the operapluginwrapper
      I see this,

      The same libobject-2.0.so.3200.4 is involved in all the faults.

    12. I have another computer running Fedora 14. I upgraded from Opera 11.64. to 12.01 and had trouble, not the same issue as we are experiencing now, so I went back to 11.64 which was working without incident. Out of curiousity, I took a look at the operapluginwrapper-native and noticed it was a different size and not faulting so I moved it to the computer running F17. No good. It would not detect the plugins despite the paths being correct. It was a desperate move, pity it didn’t come off.
      My next move is to look at downgrading the package that libgobject-2.0.so.0.3200..4 belongs to and seeing what happens.

    13. On this computer with Fedora 14 and Opera 11.64, I don’t have a problem.

      On my upgraded computer, new motherboard, CPU etc. and Fedora 17, the problem arises irrespective of the Opera version.
      I’ve tried Opera 12.0 and 12.01 latest build version I have regressed back through the versions to 11.60 and it still faults.

      I have tried Mint 13 KDE with Opera 12.01 and I had what appears to be the same problem although I can’t be sure as I didn’t try to troubleshoot it to the same degree.

      It seems to me that the problem is with operapluginwrapper-native and the latest glib2, both being common to Mint 13 and Fedora 17.
      In Fedora 14 and Opera 11.64, Flash works without fault with Fedora 14 using glib2 2.26.0-2.fc14 and flash 11.2 r202.

      Opera has had trouble with Flash on and off for a long time in my experience, I’ve tolerated it where possible but I’ve also stuck with the working versions when they have appeared and resisted upgrading for as long as possible until it has been practically unavoidable.

      I’ve pretty much reached the point of tolerating the problem, using Firefox as a backup to view videos on pages if I think they are interesting enough. Eventually, the problem will be sorted and we’ll all be able to move on until something else breaks with another “upgrade”.

      • Okay, the problem is glib2 and operapluginwrapper (flash), that’s why same problem exists also earlier Opera versions (11.6x) even if Opera team announced that the these bugs should be fixed. It was probably fixed only with some versions of glib2, but not all or something like that.

        Thank you Brian for this in-depth research :)

    15. Hello,

      I have a problem trying to install Opera…

      I downloaded the most recent stable version for Linux: opera-stable_30.0.1835.88_amd64.deb

      I converted .de file into a .rpm package using alien -r -c command

      But..(and this is the sad part)..when I try to install the rpm, I get this error: “file / from install of opera-stable-30.0.1835.88-2.x86_64 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.2-32.fc22.x86_64”

      Is there a known fix for that?

      • Hello Vasile,

        I built Opera Stable 30, Opera 31 Beta and Opera 32 Developer rpms using these rpm specs https://gist.github.com/ruario/f0183807a9f708067475

        You can find my builds from here:
        http://rpms.if-not-true-then-false.com/opera/

        Installation, example

        
        dnf install http://rpms.if-not-true-then-false.com/opera/opera-stable-30.0.1835.88-1.inttf.x86_64.rpm
        
        ## OR ##
        yum localinstall http://rpms.if-not-true-then-false.com/opera/opera-stable-30.0.1835.88-1.inttf.x86_64.rpm
        

        Tested on Fedora 22 and CentOS 7.
