Fixing Opera

turned out not to be too hard. A search of the Unbuntu Forums turned up an Opera HOWTO page. Basically, you need to make sure that the Motif/Qt libraries are loaded:

sudo apt-get install libmotif3 lesstif1 lesstif2 motif-clients

There are also some java fixes that you can learn about on this page.

Now you can go to the Ubuntu download page, select the Ubuntu version of 8.54 for download, and click. Then open a terminal window and

$ cd ~/downloads
$ sudo dpkg -i opera_8.54-20060330.6-shared-qt_en_etch_i386.deb

and you have an up-to-date version of Opera.
