  1. To install Opera, simply go to their download page here. Ubuntu will be auto-detected, and click on the big Download Opera button:

In terminal:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb stable non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera.list'
sudo sh -c 'wget -O - | apt-key add -'
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install opera

Detailed up-to-date instructions are available here:

Quoting the Opera Knowledge Base:

With Debian- and Ubuntu-based distros, you can use Opera's repository to ensure that your system will always have the latest stable Opera version.

You can also always get the latest version from but in that case you won't be using the native system tools (apt, aptitude, Ubuntu Software Center) to do updates.

Installing via repository is the recommended way to install Opera according to the Ubuntu Community Help Wiki.
