Thought i'd have a look at the Opera Web browser especially since they've added VPN. But after downloading it from the official web site and then clicking on the .deb file i get the following error,

opera-stable_38.0.2220.31_i386.deb
error:
Dependency is not satisfiable:
libcurl3 (>=7.16.2)

Does anyone have any idea what is happening here please.

You appear to be missing the actual package (not an old version) try this to resolve it

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libcurl3
heres my 64 bit as kind of proof
dpkg -l | grep libcurl
ii  libcurl3:amd64                        7.47.0-1ubuntu2                            amd64        easy-to-use client-side URL transfer library (OpenSSL flavour)
ii  libcurl3-gnutls:amd64                 7.47.0-1ubuntu2                            amd64        easy-to-use client-side URL transfer library (GnuTLS flavour)
ii  python-pycurl                         7.43.0-1ubuntu1                            amd64        Python bindings to libcurl
ii  python3-pycurl                        7.43.0-1ubuntu1                            amd64        Python bindings to libcurl (Python 3)

Yes that worked really well. I now have the Opera browser installed and all dependencies are fully satisfied.
I am a tad disapointed though because i downloaded the 32bit version of Opera and it appears that VPN is not included.

I really enjoy using Linux Lite and don't fancy doing a fresh download of the 64bit version of Linux Lite. Not at the moment anyway.

Thanks for all the help aus9

glad its solved.

My internet is so slow going to a VPN would be like using a dial up modem heh heh.

Have you considered buying a router that has openvpn?

If its not too rude, is vpn to evade geoblocking or more security?

no need to reply.
Good Luck

I would never ever even consider doing anything that could be deemed illegal. I just thought it might improve security and i'd like to give it a try out.  But if it slows down the Internet like you say then i will give it a miss.

By the way, i am now running Linux-Lite-3.0 (64bit). Just thought i'd say.

Hi johnb,

As far as I know the VPN/proxy feature has been only released in the developer channel yet.

More info here:

Hope that helps :)

I don't want to mislead you.

I get 4 Mbps which is roughly 450 kilobytes per second.....so I am so slow any time to encrypt and decypt is why I can't go vpn.

if you are already near 4g speeds or better then you will get a slow down but you may not notice. A quick search has this link that might interest you?

Hi aus9

I installed Opera this morning and selected the VPN option and to be honest with you i've found no  Internet speed loss that i can detect anyway. I think Opera is onto a winner with the inclusion of VPN and i can't imagine that the likes of Firefox and Google will be long bringing out their own versions very shortly. I am very happy with the Opera browser and especially VPN as it hopefully increases my online security.

If VPN gets you excited, don't forget to test for DNS leak of your real IP please, link 2 is good due to browser issues

try these that should not reveal your real country etc

Hello LL-user thanks for the link and i'm sorry i missed you until now.

Hi aus9 I have tried the links as you stated them.
The first link give me 5 different IP addresses all in the Netherlands. And the last link said it appears there is a leak but give me 5 different IP addesses which were all in Germany. And none of the IP addesses in Germany were the same as the VPN address i am using.

Hello!

I use VPN Gate, a project ran by a university in Japan. Some of the connections available are quite fast, and since it's just another Internet connection, it's not browser-specific.

I use it to snatch 'Shadowhunters' on Netflix, as it's not normally available to US customers. That little redhead is SO cute...

If you look at what version number of the 32-bit version of Opera vs. the version number of the 64-bit version, it would appear that active development on the 32-bit version of Opera stopped some time ago...

OP opera-stable_38.0.2220.31_i386.deb
me opera-stable_38.0.2220.31_amd64.deb

Maybe there is something else you are not telling me as some kind of cruel tease?
Good Luck
