    It seemed to install ok, but on launch, I get an error window titled "Ubuntu" that says "The application Opera has closed unexpectedly." When I click the Details button, it says ExecutablePath /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/opera/opera and the processing swirly took a long time. Then: Package opera-stable 45.0.2552.898 [origin: Opera Software ASA]; ProblemType Crash; Title opera crashed with SIGILL; ApportVersion 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.10; Architecture i386; CoreDump actually says "(binary data)"; CurrentDesktop XFCE; Date Sat Nov 11 16:19:28 2017; Dependencies (has a long list, won't let me copy) ... much much more including JournalErrors ACPI Warning (several) and a long list of other items; ...UnreportableReason This is not an official Ubuntu package. Please remove any third party package and try again.
    Relaunch button gave same error window.

    I suspect version 45 needs something my machine doesn't have - more memory, ESS2, ? - or maybe I need to change some BIOS setting. The BIOS is still configured for XP, and Opera 12 seemed happy. Is there an Opera version between 12.16 and 45 that might be more appropriate? Or can you coach me to get this one working? Thanks again for your attention to my plight.

  • How much RAM does your system have?

  • @jimunderscorep said in Linux 32 bit developed?:

    May I ask what keeps you in opera? You could move to chromium for instance...

    I like Opera and use it for a 15 years. And does Chromium have support for 32 bit cpu for Linux?
    It,s very sad. I have EeePC 1003, I've upgraded it to 2GB of RAM, replaced HDD with Intel SSD 240 Gb and Wi-Fi Adapter. And only CPU is weak thing in this machine.

  • @pindos
    Unlike chrome, chromium is opensource, so distros package it in both 32 and 64 bits, so yes, chromium is available in 32bit.
    Which distro do you use?

  • I'm fine with old version. But every update of chromium-codes breaks it. Is there any way around this without keeping old codecs with security vulnerabilities? (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS i386 here)

  • @sgunhouse I'm working with an older machine (AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 GHz, 640M RAM, (originally ran XP) now running Xubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 32-bit. I've got a topic open at https://forums.opera.com/topic/23262/xubuntu-16-opera-12-16-browser-menu-stubborn-light-green-text-problem-how-change , and you just posted a good lead there for me. My plan for the next thing to try is to remove Opera and Firefox, install a desktop theme, re-install Opera 12.16, and report in with my results.

  • @pindos
    Then you can install it with
    sudo apt-get install chromium

  • @jimunderscorep
    Thank you! I'll try.

  • @jimunderscorep
    This command doesn't work.

    Package chromium is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    chromium-bsu

    E: Package 'chromium' has no installation candidate

  • My bad, the package is named chromium-browser, so the right command is

    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

  • @jimunderscorep said in Linux 32 bit developed?:

    sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

    That's right! Thank you! I installed it.

  • @nikt11 said in Linux 32 bit developed?:

    run: opera --disable-update

    Thank you! It works! 😉

    I know and I use Vivaldi, but still much short of Opera. Unfortunately, on an old laptop I have no choice but to stay Vivaldi.

    How does Vivaldi compares to Opera? Is this exactly the same JavaScript, CSS and DOM support? I need to be able to test for Chrome like browser and I only have a 32 bits machine, so if Vivaldi uses the same core as Chrome and Opera, that’s enough for me (I just hope it can import Opera’s bookmarks).

  • Most Linux distros and all operating systems are leaning to 64-bit. Hardware now a days is all 64-bit now.

    Yes,
    You can import them.

    If you run into problems, just export them from Opera as Html, then Import in Vivaldi.

    Precisely, I was wondering how to export to HTML from Opera, I can’t find it in the menus.

  • At least in latests versions.
