    Thank you for taking the time. Wouldn’t double-clicking on the deb file suffice? It did for other deb packages, like RealPlayer.

  5. admin says:

    looks like it’s a self installing package now.
    just download and when it’s finished it gives you the option to open it with GDebi package installer.
    no more need to open up a terminal etc.

    run this command and get the error :
    sudo dpkg -i opera_9.10-20061214.6-shared-qt_en_i386.deb

    dpkg: error processing opera_9.10-20061214.6-shared-qt_en_i386.deb (–install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:

    where can I get the dpkg ?

    go to opera’s website and download the new 10.10 on the home page.
    it will ask you what kind of package you want.
    choose “debian”. then click the download button.
    then it will ask you if you want to open it or save it.
    (like windows does)
    when it’s done downloading double click it to open. it will ask you if you want to open it with “gnome-open” (for me it does anyway)
    then it opens a package installer. looks just like the ones that install the software you choose in the Ubuntu software center.

    it works very similar to a microsoft windows download would.

    I see I made it sound a little confusing

    1. go to opera home page
    2. click the download button for 10.10
    3. now here is where it asks you which package you want. choose “debian”

    4. then click the download button
    5. choose to save or open
    6. open the download by clicking on it when it’s finished downloading if you chose to save the file.
    if you chose to open it will open the package installer automatically.

    at this point it’s just like the package installer used in the ubuntu software center.
    click install and it installs itself.

    (this is how all linux stuff should be!)

    I have found that even though google-chrome seems slightly faster when surfing between sites and loading images, the download times are much slower than firefox, and the difference is noticeable with my relatively slow connection. I would prefer to stick with the default browser.

    Hi, all. If I download the deb file, then try to have Feisty open it, I receive the error message “The file may be corrupted or you are not allowed to open the file. Check the permissions of the file.” I am the SU of this computer, so that means I should be able to open it–right? I am the owner and can read and write; I have “Allow Executing file as program” ticked.
    I don’t understand why, but when I type “su” into the terminal and try to type the pw, I get the message that authentication failed; if I type “sudo -i”, then I get to be su–# instead of a $. Since this method works, I am wondering why the trouble with the “su” command?
    The main problem is with Opera, since I can type the command for SU that works. I am a newbie to FF, and Linux, in general–I tried Natty on my parent’s computer, I was able to do stuff, so I don’t think I’m helpless with Linux.
