How To Install Opera Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Opera Browser on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Opera Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Opera is a cross-platform web browser known for its innovative features, such as a built-in ad-blocker, VPN, and battery saver. It’s designed to provide a fast and secure browsing experience while offering a range of customization options. Whether you’re a casual user or a power user, Opera has something to offer.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Opera web browser on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Opera Browser on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

Step 2. Installing Opera Browser on Ubuntu 22.04.

  • Install Opera from the Official Repository

One of the easiest ways to install Opera on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS is through the official Opera repository. This method ensures that you receive updates directly from Opera, ensuring your browser is always up-to-date and secure.

echo deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/opera.gpg] https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera.list

Next, import the GPG key:

wget -O- https://deb.opera.com/archive.key | sudo gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/opera.gpg

After the repository is enabled, now install the latest version of Opera using the below command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install opera-stable

Confirm the installation and check the installed build version of the Opera browser:
