  1. Don’t do it this way. Use the repository approach! This will make future updating much easier, as it will be handled by Ubuntu’s Update Manager!

    (1) In your /etc/apt/sources.list, add this line:
    => deb http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable non-free

    (2) Then the GPG key:
    => wget -O – http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add –

    (3) Refresh your package manager database:
    => sudo apt-get update

    (4) Install Opera:
    => sudo apt-get install opera
    (It should also appear in Synaptic Package Manager.)

  2. Thanks for the comment – there is a slight typo in it though. On the GPG line, the long dash after the O should be just a regular dash. Also, people should make sure to get the ending dash. In other words, the line to get the GPG key is this:
    wget -O – http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add –

  3. Thanks to all!
    But I think, there still remained one typo…
    The second dash is represented by a wrong character (8211).
    This way it creates a file called ‘–’
    The correct dash would be ‘-‘ (45)

    In order to be able to just copy-paste the line has to be written the following way:

    wget -O – http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add –

  4. Sorry… but your Server-Program is crap. It just changes the dash sign with another one….. BAD PROGRAM! 😉
