Hi guys,

I downloaded and unzipped the Opera 9.62 zip and then, using ROX-filer, double clicked on opera-9.62.pet to install it. All seemed to go swimmingly, but subsequently typing "opera" at the command line gives the error:

Quote:

# opera

OPERA_DIR unset and not found at expected location (/usr/share/opera)


Anyone any idea what the problem is? I'm running Puppy 4.1.1 on a full hard disk install.

Many thanks,

Pete

I cant get this web address to display in Opera properly http://livecam.courchevel.com/index.php?langue=2, it should be a 360deg scrolling webcam image, and is fine in Seamonkey on the same system. I have Opera 9.62. Does anyone have any ideas?????

I'm having the same issue. Though, that I would be patient and wait for a response from someone before posting. Sadly for Opera lovers with issues installing, one has yet to be forthcoming.

It is rather amazing that it is so difficult to get Opera running on Puppy. It's such a great browser. I am not a Firefox fan, per se. But, I did install Firepup on a celeron 700 laptop:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1884407135&t=34876

And, it runs like a scalded dog.

It will have to do until I can get Opera running. Though Firepup marks the first time I have ever enjoyed using an otherwise sluggish FF, Opera is just too feature rich without the aggravation of installing a zillion silly extensions to make a full-time move to any Firefox derivative.

I do hope that someone will help with this issue.

Hi guys,
I'm typing this in Opera 9.62 downloaded from:
http://puppylinux.ca/tpp/bugs/opera-9.62.pet
Installed and running no problems.

Did you check to see if /usr/share/opera/ is there? What about /usr/bin/opera?

If not then try changing the name of opera-9.62.pet to opera-9.62.tgz. Click on it and extract files. Open the new opera-9.62 folder and then copy the etc and usr folders to /
(menu->filesystem->Rox then go up one level). Merge the folders and then try to start opera.

If that doesn't work then try downloading the pet again. Could be a bad file.

The link in Wolf pup's first post asks for a username and password. I must be clueless, but what would that be? Thanks, Kurt

PostPosted: Mon 09 Mar 2009, 11:34    Post subject: flash not working?  

This is something I've encountered before--I just installed the 9.63 opera, along with the posted java and flash plugins, and can't get flash working.

Is there a trick to this? I must be a complete moron, b/c it seems like everyone else is having fun... Wink

Thanks. I'll probably download it soon as I had a few problems with posting from Opera 10.0 (the text overflowed the sides of the boxes)..
