How did you install it? That will determine how it needs to be uninstalled. It may be as simple as:
Code: Select all
# aptitude purge opera

If you want to reinstall the same piece of software, you can use this command as root. You become root by typing su, pressing Enter and typing the root password.
Code: Select all
apt-get install -reinstall opera
Debian == { > 30, 000 packages }; Debian != systemd

It is hard to get away from CLI tools.

Easiest way is to add one of the Opera repos to your sources.list
The Opera .deb Repository -
### Example apt source configuration (uncomment the version you want)

# Opera Browser - Production release
#deb etch non-free
#deb lenny non-free
#deb squeeze non-free
#deb sid non-free

# Opera Browser - Beta release
#deb etch non-free
#deb lenny non-free
#deb squeeze non-free
#deb sid non-free

To install the key on your host, do something like this:
Debian user

wget -O - | apt-key add -
Raspberry PI 400 Distro: Raspberry Pi OS 10 (buster) Kernel: 5.10.17-v8+ aarch64 DE:LXDE Ram 4GB
Debian - "If you can't apt-get something, it isn't useful or doesn't exist"
