Opera 29 Brings Support For Tab Synchronization, Customizable Keyboard Shortcuts, A New Audio Indicator And Other Changes

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Opera 29 has been recently released for all the major platforms, bringing important new features, including tab sync, customizable keyboard shortcuts, new mouse gestures, a new audio indicator, centered standalone images and integrated history on the start page.

In order to benefit from the Tab Sync Feature, need an Opera account (login / register for free) and after that, you will have access to the tabs opened on other devices where you used the same Opera account, by clicking the Tabs button on the new start page.

Note: for now, Opera is available only for 64 bit (amd64) Ubuntu, Debian and derivatives, but starting with Opera 30, support for 32 bit (i386) systems will be also available.

To install Opera 29 stable on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Deepin, Peppermint, LXLE, Linux Lite and other Ubuntu derivative systems, you have to download the deb package form the project’s website and install it via command-line:

$ wget http://deb.opera.com/opera/pool/non-free/o/opera-stable/opera-stable_29.0.1795.47_amd64.deb
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ sudo gdebi http://deb.opera.com/opera/pool/non-free/o/opera-stable/opera-stable_29.0.1795.47_amd64.deb

Because the Opera 29 deb package gets updated frequently, most likely version 29 will be replaced by a new one soon, so when this link becomes obsolete, download the deb for amd64 Ubuntu systems from HERE and install it via gdebi.

Optional, to remove opera, do:

$ sudo apt-get remove opera
