Opera: Installation and the Public Key [SOLVED]
« on: February 11, 2015, 10:11:38 am »
Hello Friends at Peppermint,

I recently learned how to install Opera browser through the terminal with PCNetSpec's help.

Now everything installs perfectly and with no problem.  But I end up with one harmless, pesky nuisance after I perform a general update.  The nuisance is Peppermint 5 saying, within the terminal, that it can not find the Opera's public key.  But, if I then repeat adding the public key for Opera a second time, the problem always goes away.

Why is this occurring?  Is this because Opera has changed it browser-engine from Presto to Chromium's Blink?  Any guesses?  Mind you, the key is correct; Opera installs perfectly.  First one installs the old Opera 12.16 with the Presto browser-engine, and then one updates and installs the new Opera stable within Peppermint 5's terminal. 

I have the same experience, concerning Opera's public key, within Ubuntu MATE 14.04.1 too.

Thank you,

perknh

Nope .. you should only need to add the repo to youur sources.list .. add the public key ONCE, then install via your package manager.

Unless for some reason the opera package has a post install script that removes the public key .. but why they'd do that I don't know.

Hello PCNetSpec,

I think I know what happened.

When I removed, and purged, the original Opera 12.16 installation,  I must have removed the public key too.

Opera didn't do this; I did it to myself!

How's that for a reasonable theory?

Possible .. I'd have to look at the package to be 100% sure, but as it's not a default Peppermint app.......

Nah, you've got bigger fish to fry than dealing with my nutty computer escapades.  These puzzles just gnaw at me, that's all.

Thank you,
