|Don't be fooled into
thinking that the browser world is just
Mozilla and Internet Explorer. Linux users have yet another
browser to look open. Maybe it is just a song and a
Maybe it is not. But lets install Opera.
1: First, lets go to www.opera.com
2: Wait for the Opera page to load
3: Click on Download and choose Download Opera
4: Opera's page defaulted to Xandros, so choose Debian from the menu.
5: Opera put the check in Debian Unstable (Sid). Leave it there.
6: At this point click on the link to Download Opera Now
7: Right now Mozilla is defaulting to /home/username. Hit save.
8: Play some music or something.
9: When the download finishes, open up Personal Files
10: The Opera package should be quite clear on the page. Click on the Opera download
11: Kpackage should open up.
12: Hit install
13: Hit install again
14: Type in the root password
15: When Opera finishes, hit done
16: Close Kpackage. Now in personal files hit the Up arrow twice.
17: Once at file:/ click on the folder labeled usr
18: Now click on bin
19: Once the file:/usr/bin folder is up, head for the O section
20: There is the Opera link
21: Drag the icon to the desktop
22: and link here
23: Now click on the new link.
24: Opera will pop up a license agreement. Hit I agree
25: The problem with opera is that the free version requires ads. Now, given the sites I normally visit, I don't really have a problem with google doing the ads. After all, I put up with that in Gmail.
26: Once you've made the choice, hit ok.
27: Now Opera is installed and running.
