Jake from Germany asks:
“…I downloaded the new .deb package from Opera… and I want to uninstall it because it will not load any web pages, making me crazy… how to I uninstall it?”
I’m assuming it was a .deb package that you downloaded directly from the Opera web site. (As a side note, I had the same issue with Opera, in that it refused to load web pages on a local web server – I also removed Opera).
To uninstall any .deb package, use the following syntax:
sudo dpkg -r <name of package>
So… to remove an Opera .deb installation, the command is:
sudo dpkg -r opera
Don’t forget to remove the hidden .opera directory inside your home directory! Doing so will give you a “clean” start if you want to reinstall Opera.
I hope this helps.
