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

  • Double click on the file called “opera”. In the dialog, choose “Run”.

  1. Hey Thanks Ricky,

    I've been running the previous version (10.53) of Opera on Ubuntu.

    I also notice you have Opera – Link and Turbo disabled and Unite is turned off. ;)
