How to install Mike Walsh's Opera browser

Mike Walsh has built an excellent "portable" Opera package http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1046380#1046380. The following procedure converts it into a conventional install with a desktop shortcut. The additional dependencies for Stretch/Buster are also downloaded.

Note: Do Step 4 BEFORE Step 5.

1. Download and unpack "Opera-portable.tar.gz"
2. This creates the folder "Opera-portable"
3. Open this folder and locate the "opera" folder
4. Copy the "opera" folder into your filesystem at /opt
5. Install the opera-desktop_1.0_amd64.deb attached below
6. Look in the Internet/Network menu for Opera

This Opera can play its audio through Bluetooth, but it doesn't sync quite as well as Firefox.

Subject description: trouble activating wlan0

FWIW.

Just downloaded:

602669cd30f8b195a43b2609e00b7d8b DebLive_Stretch-4.19.0-6-amd64.iso

confirmed checksum.

extracted "live" folder from iso and copied to top of sda4 (hd0,3) of Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with ethernet connection.

Added GRUB menu item:

title DebianDog live-boot-3x (sda4)
root=(hd0,3)
kernel /live/vmlinuz1 boot=live config swapon quickreboot noeject showmounts union=aufs
initrd /live/initrd.img
boot

Booted successfully.

Tried to configure my wireless (add password), but got message wlan0 not active.

So tried Synaptic:
- reload (using ethernet cable connection)
- search for "b43". not installed.
- installed firmware-b43-installer and b43-fwcutter
- exit synaptic

Still couldn't configure wlan0

Ran AptToSfs and created a squashfs file containing firmware-b43-installer and b43-fwcutter. Placed that squashfs into "base" subfolder of "live" folder.

Re-booted.

Still can't configure wlan0.

Note: wlan0 on this machine, Dell Inspiron 1525, works with debdog Jessie and debdog32 stretch when b43 is installed.

So I know the wireless card hardware is not the problem.

@Ether: To check for firmware problems, run this command:
Code:
dmesg | grep -i firmware

There are three ways to get the b43 firmware.

1. Via synaptics/apt-get. You must then either reboot or run these commands:
Code:
modprobe -r b43
modprobe b43

2. Download the package attached below. Rename it and remove the fake .gz extension on the end. Right-click on the file. Select "Install deb".

3. Get the b43 firmware packaged as a squashfs module from here. Put it in the "live" folder of your frugal install.

@Ether: Have you done a reboot after installing the b43 firmware?

Yes.

I used AptToSfs to create a squashfs file after installing b43. Then I moved that file into the "base" subfolder of the "live" folder. Then I re-booted, thinking the squashfs file would bring in b43. But apparently it didn't: I ran Synaptic and searched for b43 and it said b43 was not installed.

Not sure why that did not work.

Quote:

Or run:
Code:
modprobe -r b43
modprobe b43

Then check with the command: dmesg | grep -i firmware

bash: -i: command not found

Quote:
If it still doesn't work, install the attached package.

I am embarressed to say I don't know how to installed a deb file. Is it fairly simple, or can you provide a link to the procedure?

Quote:

[Edit] You are doing a "live-boot" install instead of "Porteus", so you have no persistence set up. Is that what you intended?

Yes. That's why I tried making a squashfs file.

Is there a way to boot this using save folder instead of save file?

How did you get this working in the Dogs?

I used ReMaster Dog (that worked) and I also used CoW (and that worked too).

1. Turning the b43 stuff into a squashfs module won't work because a program needs to be run.

2. Because you are running without persistence, every reboot is a clean start, so you need to repeat everything. You do NOT have a save file in play.

3. Assuming that installing "b43-fwcutter" from Synaptics works, you must then run the commands
Code:
modprobe -r b43
modprobe b43

4.

You are typing the command wrong. The "|" is the pipe symbol.

Please read Page 1 and follow the instructions to get the stretch-live-frugal-install-tool.

6. To install the deb file: Download it. Rename it and remove the .gz extension on the end. Right-click on the file. Select "Install deb".

@Ether: If this is easier for you, I have packaged the b43 firmware as a squashfs module. Download it here.
