On a 64-bit system:

yum install http://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/linux/1216/opera-12.16-1860.x86_64.rpm

Browse the http://ftp.opera.com/pub/opera/linux/ for other versions/platforms/distributions.

Go to the Linux download section of Opera's website (http://www.opera.com/download/guide/?os=linux). Choose Fedora in the dropdown and download an rpm.

You can install it by:

  1. Double clicking and using the GUI
  2. Using the command line program rpm: rpm -i opera-xxx.rpm
  3. Using the commandline program yum/dnf: dnf install opera-xxx.rpm. yum and dnf (which is a replacement for yum) are package managers and so installing an rpm with either of them should automatically install dependencies for you (though I don't think Opera should have any dependencies so 2 and 3 will do the same thing).

Using rpm isn't recommended. It doesn't resolve dependencies, and you miss out on features like yum history undo that can be especially valuable with third party repos and packages.

Yum, honestly is the best version. GUI's are slow, especially IMO Gnome Software Center, so a command line would suffice. You can use the GUI if you don't like the command line though.

@hello what's wrong with dnf?

Hi

Opera:

Go to the link below and choose Distribution as Fedora, Package format as Default and click on Download. After the download is completed double click to install it.

If you like to install opera and update it automatically, you can add russian fedora nonfree repo:

su -c 'yum install --nogpgcheck http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/russianfedora/russianfedora/nonfree/fedora/russianfedora-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'

then install opera:

yum install opera
