@jimunderscorep Wow, thanks a lot for this, very instructive! The whole system of sharing codecs between basically independent projects appears to be very fragile; this explains why it breaks from time to time.
@l33t4opera thanks, but I think this time I'll just wait until new codecs arrive. Should be less work for me
@brumman Yeah, if the package is on hold, it won't be automatically updated. I guess I'll have to check in a week or two if Ubuntu maintainers have pushed version 67 of chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra to the repo and then simply do something like this:
$ sudo apt-mark unhold opera-stable
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt upgrade
@loup001 Unfortunately it does not provide a solution. I just want a proceed button on the certificate warning page to continue to the site. Let me make the decision, not the browser, Opera team or anybody else.
I don't want to install certificates, I mentioned it in the original post because even installing a certificate wont get me beyond the restriction.
I tried to edit the post above for clarity but time elapsed and I was no longer allowed to do that.
Basically, if you are using Mint Cinnamon, all you have to do to have Opera open in any position and size you wish is to permanently pin a tab. It can be any tab you wish.
Edit the opera.desktop file at local/share/applications at the sixth line, under [Destop Entry], to this:
and save the file. Log out of your computer and back in and it should work fine. Just make sure to have a tab pinned.
