A better fix for dead Opera on 7.04 Feisty!
On my previous post Fixing dead Opera on 7.04 Feisty! I mentioned you could hold back the ‘problem’ package to keep Opera working.
This is the reason I like using Opera, they have released a patch. As per the comment by csant, he mentioned it’s not just Ubuntu, but many distro’s that used the new libX11-6 package. So, let’s run through how to undo what I did then use the new Opera.
- Unhold and install the package.
wajig unhold libx11-6 && wajig install libx11-6
- Go visit the pages mentioned in the comment. I’d recommend you visit that page first as there may be further updates/patches. If you’re lazy (like me) then directly download the patch like this:
sudo dpkg -i opera_9.20-20070406.6-shared-qt_en_i386.deb
Load Opera and you should be set! Thanks again to Opera for the speedy fix!
