[Request]Opera GX on Linux

If I may, I will jump back onto my original post and specify that this thread was created a long time ago, but my feedback doesn't change. 22.04 is likely already out in the wild. All I'd possibly want from a Linux-based application of Opera GX is that it's set in an
.appimagefile that can self-update, and as popularity, demand, and resources grow, eventually tailor the packages to their respective distributions (i.e. OperaGX-latest.deb for Debian-based distros, and OperaGX.tar.gz for Arch Linux-based distros). Running Opera GX through WINE, while a stop-gap measure, isn't as efficient as it should be.
+1 Would love to be able to use Opera GX for linux

Absolutely ridiculous to be left out. With appimage or flatpak or even just a only fashioned tar that the communities can repack to their own distros or use any of the cross platform means of install, it's not like they would be catering to the entire community. But I will say that if it i possible for chrome and edge to be available for Linux, then opera is actively choosing to bypass a large portion of the community. They already have opera browser for linux, so it's not like they cant do the same for gx. Hell, they have it for android, which means it can be repacked for linux.

I don't get why they aren't just doing this already, this thread alone has 44.9k views (at the moment of posting this) so probably a good percentual of these people want/need/could use Opera GX on linux. Maybe the Opera GX devs could be already trying to do this, and maybe working on a beta version, but here's my message to the Opera GX staff, team, devs, etc.:
"Please, if you are bored of seeing all these replies under this thread and others, just tell us that there's something going on, some testing, something that will maybe, one day, come to life and become a finalized version of this browser. If there isn't something actually going on, you (the team, etc.) can try to make it work and if there's no way it's gonna work, then just stop and tell us. But, please, don't leave the silence be like it is. Just talk and tell the crowd (which is probably a good part of your everyday users and fanbase that are switching to linux or already use it for its gaming performance, as said in my previous reply) what you have to tell. We will all appreciate it, good or bad. Thanks for your support."

I just started using Opera GX on my Windows pc and it just feels sooo good. I also have a number of Linux machines and would like to have Opera GX there as well. Opera GX feels way more optimized than other browsers, it would solve the common Linux freeze issue and be a nice integration of chat apps.
I wish we could have a Linux port it at some point.

It's really a shame! I would have loved to use it, and really it just looks real cool. I as well use Linux as my only OS, so it's quite sad seeing how the cool Opera isn't ported, but the normal one is. Hope it will be ported soon.

I installed Ubuntu 23.04 recently its sad you can't install Opera GX on it. I want to see if it runs one of my favorite games on it (Tanki MMO browser game works on Opera GX and Google Chrome on Windows runs well). But when I play thru google chrome on Ubuntu Linux the fan speed goes way high 4700 rpm compared to windows11 3100 rpm.
Opera GX for Linux would be cool, please release it, thanks!

I'm a big enjoyer of opera GX, although I migrated to Linux and the opera GX doesn't have any support to it. I'm begging for a release of a version to opera Gx for linux distros.

Moved from windows to 981 different distro's in the last month and settled on Kubuntu, tried to download Opera GX and got an .exe file ! That's not linux ! That's windows ! That Terrible ! So i did the follow :
- search for the package using apt, dnf, yay, arch, auch, conda, pip, python, tif, taf and tuf
- Looked on my 18TB backups of torrents i never use
- Scanned my 6000 movies for the change i overlooked a .deb file
- Asked google, jeeves, aol, bart, chatgpt, you, bing bang and bung
- Finally found this forum thread and made an user just for this
- Started complaining :
Dear Opera GX developers, have you heard of this OS called "Linux" ? More and more people use it, specially for development, gaming and trying to escape MSAppleSoft. Now wouldn't it be great to instantly get 50 to 500 thousand extra installs and make the same people happy instantly if you made the browser available ?
So stop looking at dancing women and make that flatpak, deb, rpm, dnf, yay, pacman, or .deb file. Or do like everyone else : Make a distro with GX pre installed and call it GX-Linux 94 ! Get on with it.

When will Opera GX be available for Linux? Opera is already available on Linux so why isn't Opera GX?

I've been using a Steam Deck as a pc lately. Seems like a poor choice to be the "Gaming Browser" and not support the gaming device.
+1 for Linux.

Browsed through the forums a bit and, although i saw a lot of posts for opera GX support for Linux, most of them are outdated. So i decided to make a new one - as a reminder. The 2 or 3 most viewed of those posts have over 100k views and hundreds if not thousands of comments. Please team opera make it happen!
