Here is what you need to get it in Ubuntu:

Open the Terminal.

For 64-bit

wget http://snapshot.opera.com/webm/opera-10.54-21867-webm.x86_64.linux.tar.bz2
  • Extract using the command:

tar xjvf opera-10.54-21867-webm.i386.linux.tar.bz2

For 64-bit

tar xjvf opera-10.54-21867-webm.x86_64.linux.tar.bz2
  • Close the terminal and go to the extracted folder (opera-10.54-21867-webm.i386.linux).
  • Double click on the file called “opera”. In the dialog, choose “Run”.
