Today we will show you how to install the latest Opera Browser for Ubuntu or any other Linux distro you might have installed, including the popular Elementary OS or the rising Linux Mint. First off, lets find out what makes Opera Browser/Opera Mini such a popular choice on any OS.

What Is Opera Browser?

Opera is a web browser developed by Opera Software. The latest version is available for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux operating systems, and uses the Blink layout engine. An earlier version using the Presto layout engine is still available, and additionally runs on FreeBSD systems.

Get H.264 working On Opera

Right now it’s a bit complicated to get support for H.264. You can read why here: https://forums.opera.com/discussion/comment/15223803#Comment_15223803

To get support for H.264, you have to run the following commands in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libs/libffmpeg.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/lib_extra/libffmpeg.so.'x'

x = the Opera version. For example: libffmpeg.so.32

Note! Each time you update Opera to a new major version, you have to make a new symlink where you change the last number to the right one.

Then restart Opera. That simple folks! Try it and let us know if it works out for you or not by contacting us.
