Opera 33 problems

  • Hi everyone,

    I've recently installed Opera 33 stable and it keeps crashing. I've tried running it through the terminal and get these error messages,

    root@jeffs-desktop:/usr/bin# ./opera

    Can anyone help me to solve this please?

  • It's because you have run opera as root. Don't do that.

    In order to fix this, open a terminal and run this command:

    sudo chmod -R 775 ~/.config/opera/
    

    which will change back the permissions. Then run opera not as root.
