I'm trying out Opera24-developer on Fatdog 700 preview. I downloaded the deb, used ar to get a tar.gz, then extracted to folder and made an sfs. I had to ln -s libudev.so libudev.so.0 in /usr/lib, and change the sandbox permissions. It looks good except for one detail: the menus, url and tabs are illegible!

Does anyone have an idea about this? sgunhouse, an Opera guy, asked about TTF fonts. Fatdog has about 20 of them in /usr/share/fonts/X11/TTF but I don't know if Opera is finding them.
Opera 12.16 does not have this issue.
Thanks for any ideas.
Update: opera24 works ok in Slacko-64 (after making a couple of links for libs). No luck yet in Fatdog631: too many libs missing or wrong version

Edit: Font issue was fixed in Opera-developer 25.0.1613, browser worked in FD700-a1, but the problem returned in later releases--see below

Hi Wognath,

Just wondering, now that Fatdog64-700 alfa is out.
Did you get Opera24-developer running smoothly on it.

Hi neerajkolte,
I'm using Fatdog700-a1 and Opera-developer 25.0.1583.1 and it still doesn't give legible menus. In fact, since the last 2 opera updates, even the web fonts look rough, although at least they are readable.

Ohhh.... Ok thanks for the update.
You said it worked in Slacko64. Does Slacko64 handles fonts differently. May be some comparing files or folders might help.

Thanks.
- Neeraj.

@Neeraj,
Thanks for your interest. I've been away and could not answer sooner. I did try a number of things with fonts, as far as my limited knowledge allowed, but got no result. But, I'm happy to report that in opera-developer_25.0.1613 the menu font problem is gone! So far I have found no other issues with the browser.

In case anyone is interested, here's my checklist for unpacking the deb:
Code:
ar -x opera-developer_*
tar xvf data.tar.xz
mkdir opera-developer-new
mv usr opera-developer-new

cd opera-developer-new/usr/lib
ln -s libudev.so libudev.so.0
cd x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer
chmod 4755 opera_sandbox
cd /aufs/devsave

mksquashfs opera-developer-new operanew.sfs

rm data.tar.xz
rm control.tar.gz
rm debian-binary
rm -r opera-developer-new

Thanks Wognath, don't worry about being late. I am staying here a long time. I am liking it here.

I will try out opera 25 like you did.

Thanks.

Hi @Wognath,
I had to change
Code:
ln -s libudev.so libudev.so.0
to
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib64/libudev.so libudev.so.0
to get it to work.
Also had to install libnss which also installed libnspr as a dependancy.

But Opera seems to be working now. I am posting in it.
Now I am gonna look if turbo n other features work.
Also I will try to upload sfs file somewhere.

Thanks.

- Neeraj.

I just updated to opera-developer_25.0.1614.5 and now I can't read menus again!
Edit: I just noticed that opera-beta for Linux is available http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/ but it has the same problem in FD700-a1.
So Fatdog users should stick with Neeraj's sfs based on earlier opera-developer

FYI
Decided to have a play as a long time opera user.
Have the same problem with menu fonts.
Tried my desktop with radeon graphics and a laptop with intel graphics but same on both. This applies to 25.0.1614.5 and the beta
Went back to 25.0.1613 for now.
The good news is I've got pepperflash 15.0.0.152 working in Opera 25.0.1613 and FD700-b1.

I did this by installing chrome in slacko64 and borrowing the pepperflash plugin. Copied the path from slacko64 to the FD700-b1. As Opera does not seem to find it in its own dir/path.
