Won't launch on Linux Kernel 4.18

  • I recently updated Linux Kernel to 4.18 on Ubuntu 18.04. When I tried opening Opera on this kernel, nothing happened. It wouldn't launch at all in this kernel. I then rebooted my laptop and started Ubuntu on older kernel and Opera started working again. Bootom line, please update Opera to work with the newer Linux kernel. Thank You

  • It would be a bit more helpful if you posted what opera outputs when it is launched from the terminal.

    Btw, ubuntu 18.04 has kernel 4.15 by default and it will probably stay with that one until its eol in 2023, so you'd better not install kernels from third party repos if you prefer stability over features.
