    Default How to 'install' Opera on OpenSUSE ?

    Hey, I'm new to linux and OpenSUSE and I'm looking to install my favourite web browser, Opera, but I can't seem to do it. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Yast > Software > Software Management. Then type opera in the Search field and click Search, Look for opera at right, check the box before it and click Accept.

    This is the normal way to install software on openSUSE. It is in the non-OSS repo. It seems that you did not look at any basic documentation about openSUSE because installing software is one of the first things most people like to master. Look here as a starter: Package management - openSUSE

    and then look at
    http://doc.opensuse.org/documentatio....software.html

    which has sections on YaST, zypper, 1-Click installs, the rpm
    command, compiling and other things...

    What if he wants to install the new Opera 15.0, based on Chromium and Blink?

    It doesn't work with Wine.

    Are we stuck with Opera 12.0 forever?

    Then he should ask so.

    have you checked with Wine HQ to see if there is a 'trick' you have
    to do..

    of course not, today the maker offers 12.16 at
    http://www.opera.com/download/guide/?os=linux

    and if you need to know when the next Linux version will be shipped,
    ask them...not us.

    Opera has rpms on there web site that are for openSUSE, you should just download it from there if you want the latest.

    No worries, it's good to jump in, I'm not sure why people make such a big deal about answering a question, if they have nothing good to say, they should just move on (IMNSHO), but I digress.

    Another good place to check is:

    http://software.opensuse.org

    They may have a One-Click install for any software you might need. After checking, it's at version 12.15 (see: http://software.opensuse.org/package/opera)

    Well, that would apply to you as well.

    You do realize that that was the OP replying to the answers to his original question?
    And that that reply was from July 2013?

    Or did you just quote the wrong post?

    Another good place to check is:

    http://software.opensuse.org

    They may have a One-Click install for any software you might need. After checking, it's at version 12.15 (see: http://software.opensuse.org/package/opera)
    And why do _you_ jump in to give an answer that was already given?

    Btw, Opera for Linux seems quite dead at the moment.
