New user Debian - Flash - Licence - Devices - Report

  • Hi, I'm a new user of Opera. I am a graphic designer. Altually I use Debian 10 Buster (Testing).
    I changed Ubuntu for Debian and looking for a Firefox alternative I found Opera. I had a lot of time without using it and I am impressed. It's fast, it's well designed, it's really very good. Congratulations. ^_^

    I have various doubts...

    1. What license is Opera? Opensource, Free Software, privative?
    2. As active Flash? Firefox, Chrome, Chromiun have Flash enabled. In Ubuntu it works, but in Debian Testing I do not get the way.
    3. How do I delete the "Other devices" history? The menu on the top right shows me all the sections I've used doing tests.
    4. I've found some mini-bug. Where do I report the problems?

    That is all for now. Greetings.

    Opera is closed source except for its Chromium parts and third part codes.

    Opera should use Flash that is installed on your system.

    Logout from Sync on the other devices.

    Best thing to do would be to open a topic here about the issue to see if other users are also facing the problem before reporting it.

  • @alexb3d Hi, for bug reporting there is this place https://bugs.opera.com/wizard/desktop and in the works is also an easier method through a feedback icon in the address bar which can be enabled in opera://flags/#feedback-button

    Privative, it's a shame. It's the only reason why I would not use Opera.

    Opera should use Flash that is installed on your system.

    Use Debian Buster (Testing). I have Flash in all browsers. I do not have flash in Opera.

    Logout from Sync on the other devices.

    There are no other devices. It is the same computer with several formats.

    Thank you leocg. but your answers do not help me much.

  • @xirit32 Very good. Thank you.

  • @alexb3d each installation of Opera counts as a new device.

    @Guest @leocg Unfortunately the Opera browser does not come with any pre-installed Flash of its own. There's a summary on the reported cases concerning the Flash compatibility problems with Opera, and so far the total count is eighteen cases.

    You might want to try the latest instructions provided by @natasha-from-dnepropetrovsk perhaps? Just let me know if it works, we'll work something out! 🙂

    Cheers!
