Full Version: Can't get Opera 7.55 to work on C750
OESF Portables Forum > General Forums > General Discussion

Just received my C750 and loaded Opera from the IBM website but can't get it work. When tapping the Opera icon it loade for 1 sec. then goes back to the application screen.
I am a Linux newbie so I am pretty much lost. Is there a command line I need to enter? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have opera 7.30 on my sl-5500 and would like to get opera 7.55. How did you aquire it, and do you know if it will work on the sl-5500?

Thanks, Doug
1) Open konsole
2) cd /usr/share
3) rm -rf opera
4)ln -s /home/QtPalmtop/opera
5) errr...that's it ;
Ok when I type the ln command it says ln: opera Permission Denied. Sorry but I am really new at this. Trying to learn though.

did you login as root before the command ?

(if your line begins with $, then you are normal user. Type the command " su " and press enter, the line should begin with #)

Thank you for the advice regarding linking from /usr/share/opera to /home/QtPalmtop/opera, now it works for me! Although there doesn't seem to be that great a difference between Opera 7.30 and 7.55, the new version works much better with our university webmail system, which is based on Javascript.
