  • 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”.

    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. ;)
