Installed 'Opera for Linux' from Web, but Opera appears as "Uninstalled" in Software Manager

  • I installed "Opera for Linux" from the web. During the installation, I was asked if I wanted to include Opera in future updates, to which I answered 'yes'.

    Now, when I go to Administration > Software Manager > Internet, Opera appears without the checkmark, which tells me that Opera is not installed!

    What happened? Can I fix this?

    Thanks, guys.

  • What version of Linux, and what specific package (the filename) of Opera? I'm presuming the program does run properly as you only talked about updates ...

  • I assume that the "software manager" is just the snap store app which mentions opera as not installed, because it was not installed as a snap but from the deb file...
    So ignore it. If you want to check that opera is installed, use a proper app like synaptic or dpkg like so

    $ dpkg -l | grep opera
