I tried to follow the instructions on the opera page, but it didn't work. I was assuming the base install should be the same for 64-bit, but it doesn't look so. After executing
wget -qO - http://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get install opera

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'opera' has no installation candidate
Below on the page I see
A 64 bit Linux version is available, you should get it automatically either from the repositories or from Opera
I haven't tried to download it manually, since I prefer to get it from a repo. It it possible?
