@emoxam , I use 57.0.3098.116. I have no problems with video. To be more correct, they exist after update of Opera. But I manually replace codec. After that video works fine. To fix video issues look here: https://forums.opera.com/topic/30254/video-playback-issues
In short, you can't because dpkg (the thing that does the work when you double click the .deb file) does not have a silent switch or a -y to answer yes to all questionsas apt does.
If you did have the repo installed beforehand, thus have opera as an available package, you could install it like so
apt-get install opera-stable -y
@nikt11 said in Linux 32 bit developed?:
@kghn "The .deb installer I downloaded from opera.com didn't work" what does that mean, what are the errors?
I downloaded opera 45 from ftp: https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera/desktop/45.0.2552.898/linux/ and install on Debian 9.2: dpkg -i opera-stable_45.0.2552.898_i386.deb
Everything works fine. Debian 4.9.51-1 (2017-09-28) i686 GNU/Linux
just wanted to say thanks for this recommendation
I'm running Xubuntu 16.04.2 on a bunch of x86 machines I have lying around, and didn't think there were any versions higher than Opera 12.
but your installation worked for me, and I'm happy to have a decently updated version.
also regarding something from earlier...
why I use Opera over the rest is because of it's security and low memory use.
as far as I'm aware, most other browsers just don't compare.
also, most of my PCs have 2GB with only a few having 4GB (I have nothing higher)
and I believe Opera still uses less memory than FireFox.
anyways, hopefully my use will help spur development back up, as there's many reasons 32bit PCs are still used.
security is pretty much the only reason the 32bit build should ever see an update...
like how M$ had to patch XP a final time for a major flaw.
Hi @MartinTheWanderer, you're welcome. It looks like a bug in some cases, I can't reproduce it myself. You can file a report about it, using Opera's bug report wizard. Regarding second issue, try to run the Opera with --disable-namespace-sandbox switch, but even it fixes it, that's also a workaround to the real problem, perhaps it will be fixed in one of next versions of Chromium.
@s390g2 said in [Bug] HTML5 h.264 codec videos no longer working on Opera - 54.0.2952.41 / Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (x86_64; XFCE):
I also find that the fix doesn't work. So, anyone with the chromium-codecs-extra installed, do this:
ln -sf /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libffmpeg.so libffmpeg.so,
-run in opera install dir.
btw, v68 of the lib works as well as v67.
A few words about debian and the ppapi version of flash.
Debian, on its main repo, offers a package named "pepperflashplugin-nonfree". That is essentially a script that downloads the right package from adobe, extracts it and places it in all the right places.
However, if you take a look at its bug reports, you will realise that this package is poorly maintained rubbish, as I had said in a similar thread.
Since you are on debian stable, be thankfull that it has been removed from the repo, because it's poor quality does not qualify for the standards of stable, and pray it won't make it to the next stable.
What you can do is install the repo of deb-multimedia.org, which offers ppapi flash in the "flashplayer-chromium" package. This one really contains the plugin from adobe inside (= does not download it) and it is maitained by an excellent and responsible maintainer.
If the above works, please give me some credit by liking this post, because I was the one that suggested to that maintainer to package it ~2 years ago, because I was fed up with that bs on the main repo.
Once you are done, go to opera settings > adnvanced > privacy and security > content settings > flash and enable "allow sites to run flash".
