How can I install Opera 45 ?

Currently I am using Opera 43. Unfortunately at some webpages there is no sound in web media players (mp3 and aac playback fails, however youtube videos work). I tried to install opera-ffmpeg-codecs, but it didn't solved the sound issue. Opera says there is a newer version 45. But I am unable to find that package anywhere. It is the latest version which supports 32 bit. I tried to convert Opera 45 from a .deb and a .rpm package, but without success. Any custom repo which contains version 45 ?

Sadly we had to blacklist opera, see https://github.com/archlinux32/packages … /blacklist.

32-bit support has been dropped in version 46.0.2597.26.

The only option I see is you download the latest 32-bit version and convert that one:

Concerning version 45, maybe take version 46 if it works..

What I was also considering: is there some interest in an AUR opera package with the last 32-bit version of Opera?
The problem is a little bit: Archlinux32 is supposed to be bleeding edge, so if software is no longer supported, tough luck.

Mmh, just tested. My opera starts but hangs on every access to a page?

Aha. Opera too is optimized for SSE2. Then it works.

I made a local repo in case you don't want to convert the deb package by hand:

cat >> /etc/pacman.conf <EOF
[aba-aur]
Server = http://archlinux32.andreasbaumann.cc/aur/$arch
SigLevel = Optional DatabaseOptional
EOF

pacman -Syy opera32

Note: opera32 conflicts with opera.

Re: How can I install Opera 45 ?

Thank you very much, it works now, I was able to install it by adding your repository. And indeed, I had to uninstall opera 43 first. Unfortunately this newer version 45 works a bit slower, except when I swith on the battery saver mode, then it becomes acceptable again. Would be nice to know how can one make the battery saver mode permanent?

Re: How can I install Opera 45 ?

You can change pkgver in the PKGBUILD any time and package your own version of opera,
if that one is faster and more suitable to you:

yaourt -G opera32 (or download the tarball from the AUR)
# set pkgver
makepkg -si

I packaged the last version because of security bugs.

Anyway, Opera will not be usable in a while because it either gets security issues or
new features arise in the web. :-)
