How to Install Opera 12 on Linux Mint from Official Repository

July 16, 2013 — 1 Comment

Here’s a guide to install Opera browser 12 on Linux Mint 13, 14, 15. I’d recommend to add the official repository which has well integrated version for Debian based Linux.


  • Install Opera 12 from its Official Repository
  • Enjoy

To get started, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal window for running commands.

Linux Mint Terminal

Add the official repository by running below command:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera.list'

Install the public key:

wget -qO - | sudo apt-key add -

Finally update package lists and install Opera:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install -y opera

Once installed, search it from the start menu. Enjoy!
