I installed Opera-Stable. Didn't like it, used sudo apt-get remove --purge opera-stable. I noticed even just after install it added two icons to the main menu. Anyway, after this, one icon remains. I can even launch opera from it! sudo apt-get remove --purge opera/opera* also doesn't help with it. It feels like malware despite being from the official website, lol. Any way I can remove it for good? I used Main Menu to remove it from the view, but I'd like the files gone, since I don't want them affecting anything.
I'd start with Synaptic Package Manager
sudo apt install synaptic
Run Synaptic, then search for
Checkmark any remaining Opera packages and select for Complete Removal. When finished selecting, click
I found nothing. I only get operations and operational for other apps.
Can you use the terminal and check:
and see if Opera is installed as either?
I have flatpak uninstalled so it didn't work. Snap did!
