@obiwan2208 said in Why Opera Touch needs Gplay to run?:
I was testing Opera Touch on one of my old mobiles that I use for try out and it tells me that doesn't want to work because it doesn't have the GPlay.
Being a testing phone I loaded LineageOS and this time without the GApps. I've had some apps try to load the GPlay (web) but this is the first time that I find a direct dependence on the GPlay.
Could you tell me why it happens?
I'm using an Android versión 220.127.116.11.41 (Oreo) on a SailFish OS 18.104.22.168 Device (Hossa, more infor about this new OS developed by Ex-Nokia Developers at https://sailfishos.org) and I am facing the same issue.
In my case SailFish OS do not share information as tipical Android devices does, because it creates a virtual machine for android apps in order to keep safetly my information from Google and their Shared Services, Google Services is not supported by SailFish OS Android's adaption.
I hope Opera could change this kind of validation, or I'll have to say bye too this awesome browser and just install another browser which works without Google Services; Since I have been an old user from this browswer I took my time to express this Issue, hopping Opera remove that dependence.
It hurt me up a lot, but it worked at first attempt. I'll be about one year with using profiles this way and it has worked for me so far.
I find it hard to believe because looking at my historial all the pages point to me --user-data-dir but now when I check out the two sets of shortcuts, the RocketDock shortcuts and a .BAT file that I have to automate the operations with files and the execution of Opera profiles, everything comes with just one - and I assure you that RocketDock and the .BAT haven't been modified.
And it's also not an update thing since I've been downloading previous versions with the same result.
Where's the hidden cam?
PD. The key is that works again, thnks @burnout426
