How do I install Opera and Safari on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32 bit? Can anyone help? Opera I downloaded but could not get it installed. On the other hand I did not try Safari, even I don't have any idea if Safari has a version for Ubuntu.

    Those are actually two questions, please open a new separate question for one of the two applications (unless you find a similar one) and edit this question, so that it only asks about the other. For Opera see askubuntu.com/q/316193/175814, for Safari see askubuntu.com/q/4959/175814. – David Foerster Feb 13 '15 at 18:57
  • Valuable advice David Foerster but I downloaded Opera for 32-bit Linux. Thanks. – Neo Feb 21 '15 at 20:30

Safari doesn't have Linux version. But you can run it using Wine. First install Wine.

sudo apt-get install -y wine

Then create, download and build directory.

mkdir -p ~/build/safari
cd  ~/build/safari

Download Safari ( version for windows)

wget http://appldnld.apple.com/Safari5/041-5487.20120509.INU8B/SafariSetup.exe

Open using wine.

wine SafariSetup.exe

    It installs without error but unfortunately, Safari doesn't actually run. The window loads but is almost completely unresponsive and refuses to load any pages. – Cerin Feb 19 '16 at 20:24
  • @Cerin There must be some problem with wine or in installation process. You should try to reinstall it. – Priyansh Feb 24 '16 at 12:01

    I'm having the same issue as @Cerin, I can install it and run but pages won't load. – Bojan Kogoj Mar 23 '16 at 13:01

    Safari is no longer supported in Windows and running it with Wine will result in outdated and unpredictable browser. Not good for testing! – Vladimir Iliev Oct 18 '16 at 10:05

    Note that this solution is from Aug '15, and latest Safari supported on Windows is 5.1.7 and most recent Safari version is 10.1 as of Apr 17 – Bruno Peres Apr 4 '17 at 22:16

  1. The latest version of Opera 27 is only for 64-bit systems. If you want to use Opera you should choose an older version:

Opera 12.16 download link for 32-bit Linux

UPDATE: Opera restored 32-bit Linux support since Opera 35: Opera 35 32 bit

Browse Opera official site for necessary packages.

  1. Safari doesn't have Linux version.You cannot run it natively in Ubuntu.
  • Thanks Muzaffar for the advice. I downloaded Opera and running it successfully. Thanks again. – Neo Feb 21 '15 at 20:29
