Opera 12.16 doesn't work on Ubuntu 12.04

  • Opera works 15 minutes, then it becomes very slow and finally dump.
    What is this gave up of this software on Linux ? Before last updates, it works !
    I have correctly installed all the plugins (that is hard !).
    What is the problem ?

  • What do you mean by plugins (Besides maybe Adobe Flash)? Currently I am running Ubu12.10 with KDE as UI , but I have a portable (persistent) USB Install with 12.04 and just Unity as an environment - and on both *nix I am using Opera 12.16; I just installed the Debian Package from Operas Download side and haven't encountered any problems (not counting problematic webdesign compatibility issues) since.

  • How much RAM do you have on your system?

  • I have 2Go RAM so it's not the problem. And I have few tabs opened in Opera.
    I think the problem is Adobe Flash which dump by 15 minutes then Opera is very slow and finally dump. Anyway I think the problem is a plugin which finally dump and makes Opera dump too.

  • Disable the plugin in Opera on the Quick Preferences menu and see ... usually Opera just keeps going without the plugin content.

  • My Opera does that... when a try to run it.

  • Looks to me like he is complaining about an empty/black window. Beyond that ...

    Open a terminal, start Opera from the command line (by just typing "opera"), and tell us what error messages appear in the console.

    Hi sgunhouse.
    I did what you suggested and this was what happened.

    So, I tried again but with SUDO command. And voila!.. it works and put this message ..

    I don't know what I have to do...

    I really don't know what happened, why Opera stopped to work and started to do that.

    Thanxs.

  • Platform? I know openSuSE has a security program which could do that. Otherwise ... some resource Opera needs has had its permissions changed, so that only root has access to it. Make sure Opera's profile ~/.opera and the files and folders inside it list your username as owner.

  • I am using Opera 12.16 on Ubuntu and Windows and it crashes very often on facebook.com.

  • Opera 12 generally doesn't work on Linux. Well, you can obiously runt it, but I've seen browsers made as part time projects in sheds and attics that in their alpha resales are faster and more stable than Opera 12 on Linux.

    What is your point exactly ?.

    This is utterly untrue and bullshit

  • Hello there,

    I am from India. I got Ubunto 12.04 LTS and have recently installed Opera 12.16 through Ubunto software center.

    My problem is that the e-mail client provided by Opera does not seem to notify any new messages and sometimes a message like "POP connection failed" occurs.

    I have Mozilla Thunderbird (24.05.00) installed by default with my Ubunto package. Is the problem because both these e-mail clients are using the same connection/resources? My Thunderbird always notifies me of latest mails.

    Please help....!!

    Well, if you have two email clients polling the same email server, depending on the frequency they each check for new mail, the times you have set between each check (10 minutes, 1 hour etc) for each program, you may get clashes and overlaps when each program polls the server for new mail. This overlap (if any) will cause one of the programs to issue an error message, because the server is currently busy dealing with the requests from the other program.

    To lessen or eliminate this problem, you should either only run one email client at a time or widen the time gap between when the two email clients check the server for new mail.

    As for Opera's email client (M2) not notifying you of new mail, that would depend on whether Thunderbird has already received the new mail before M2 has, thus Opera may think it has already been seen (in Thunderbird) and thinks it is not new mail, thus does not notify you. Though I could be slightly wrong here.
