New Opera install for Ubuntu 16.04 question
last edited by A Former User
I just installed Opera through command line (wget -qO- https://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -, echo "deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get install -y opera-stable), installation went smoothly, but after open it, I noticed the menu and Opera icon on the left top of the screen are missing, therefore I can't see which version is mine, and also the menu is missing too. Am I the only one? Others are having similar problem? My Windows 8.1 uses Opera 55 and is fine, how can I install older version in Ubuntu 16.04? Thanks for your reply.

One thing at a time...
- For the installation part, you could just download opera's deb file, install it like usual by double clicking it and let dpkg do all that work for you Keep that in mind for next time you will need to install it fresh.
- The missing o-menu button is a known bug that only affects unity users as it seems. Does it open when you press alt though?
- If you really want to install an older version of opera, find its deb from here (go to "version number"/linux/ subfolder) and install it by hand.
Then put opera on hold so that apt won't upgrade it to a newer version like so
sudo apt-mark hold opera-stable
