Suitable version of Opera for Debian Jessie

  • What is the latest version of opera that can be
    run okay on a Debian Jessie system ?

  • @operaacct I reverted to 70.0.3728.154 but I'm already on a 5. kernel w/ several Debian-based distributions. Hope this helps.

  • Thanks. I would like to run Opera on Jessie. I have tried via sources.list, but I get this:
    Los siguientes paquetes tienen dependencias incumplidas:
    opera-stable : Depende: libgbm1 (>= 17.1.0~rc2) pero 10.3.2-1+deb8u2 va a ser instalado
    Depende: libgtk-3-0 (>= 3.21.5) pero 3.14.5-1+deb8u1 va a ser instalado
    Depende: libxkbcommon0 (>= 0.5.0) pero 0.4.3-2 va a ser instalado
    Recomienda: pepperflashplugin-nonfree pero no va a instalarse
    Recomienda: chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra pero no es instalable
    E: No se pudieron corregir los problemas, usted ha retenido paquetes rotos.

    Is it possible to install any version without having to upgrade? If so, where can I get it?

    Thanks.

  • @gfr I have found this:
    https://get.geo.opera.com/pub/opera/desktop/

    Where you can get all versions of Opera browser.

    The last version that I have got to install on Debian Jessie is this:
    opera-stable_67.0.3575.137_amd64.deb

    Thanks!

  • The most suitable version of Opera for Debian Jessie is
    opera 70.0.3728.154. It is the best version that can work for you
    for Debian Jessie. Give it a try, I hope it will work out for you.

  • @naheed Thanks for your help, but, sadly, I can not get to install that versión (70.0.3728.154). I get dependencies errors. You can see them here:

    My system is a "pure Jessie", with no add-ons:

    [15:47:48(root@debian)/home/gfr/Descargas]# uname -a
    Linux debian 3.16.0-11-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.84-1 (2020-06-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    

    and my sources.list:

  • Your sources.list doesn't look too good. In any case your sources for opera are disabled:
