How to Install Opera Browser on Debian 11 / Debian 10

Opera is one of the most popular and innovative web browsers developed by Opera Software AS. It is available on Android, Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Opera has been around since 1995, and it was originally designed as an alternative to Internet Explorer, the most popular web browser at the time.

In this post, we will see how to install Opera browser on Debian 11 / Debian 10.

Add Opera Browser Repository

Install the curl package before you proceed further.

sudo apt update

sudo apt install -y curl

First, import the Opera browser’s public signing key.

# Debian 11

curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/operabrowser-keyring.gpg 

# Debian 10

curl -fsSL | sudo apt-key add -

Next, add the Opera browser repository to the system with the below command.

# Debian 11

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/operabrowser-keyring.gpg] stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list

# Debian 10

echo "deb stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list

Install Opera Browser

Once you have added Opera browser’s repository, update the repository index.

sudo apt update

Then, install the Opera browser stable version using the apt command.

sudo apt install -y opera-stable

If you want to try the Opera browser beta version, use the below command to install it.

sudo apt install -y opera-beta

During the installation of the Opera browser, the installer will ask you to set up the Opera repository to upgrade Opera during the regular system upgrade. I recommend you choose Yes and then press Enter.

Launch Opera Browser

You can launch the Opera web browser by going to Activities >> search for Opera or running the opera command in the terminal.

To start Opera browser beta, go to Activities >> search for Opera beta or run the opera-beta command in the terminal.
