    AFAIK Opera is not OSS.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Arch has an Opera package in AUR along with lots of other packages that you might be interested in:

    AUR (en) - opera

    If you aren't sure how to install from a package build, follow these steps:


    Go to AUR, find the desired package.

    Click on the link where it says "tarball".

    Download and Extract the tarball. This should create a directory.

    Enter that directory (cd to that directory).

    type 'makepkg'

    after the compilation finishes, you should have a file ending in .pkg.tar.gz

    install that file with pacman as follows...

    'pacman -U filename.pkg.tar.gz'

    Installation should now be complete if all went as planned.

    You are correct, they use a license called Opera. But they do have a Linux build available.

    Correct, there is Opera for Linux.
    OP asked for source download. Opera comes as blob.

    I suggest using yaourt ... once you have yaourt installed then
    Code:
    yaourt -S opera
    should do the job

    I use opera... installed it from source, before I learned of yaourt.

    yaourt is an awesome tool, it tells you if an app is "installed"
    on a simple search (-Ss) and I like the pretty colors.

    NOTE:
    1.) Use yaourt as a user and not root.
    2.) Don't expect all the AUR packages to work, or you'll be disappointed
