Opera not Working [Arch Linux]

:arrow_forward: snap run opera [7481:7481:0823/141626.740276:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(158)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I’m aborting now. You need to make sure that /snap/opera/7/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/opera_sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.

I see that too. And the opera_sandbox file is not setuid root:

$ ls -l /var/lib/snapd/snap/opera/7/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/opera_sandbox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 212632 08-13 23:04 /var/lib/snapd/snap/opera/7/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera/opera_sandbox

Permissions inside squashfs are:

I wasn’t able to extract anything useful.

I’m surprised it’s SIGILL though.

Is there anything you want me test out?

Just for the record, can you post lscpu output?

FYI, the opera_sandbox issue is a problem with the snap itself and something Opera is working on. The opera-developer snap has a fix in revision 9, that was manually approved, but it isn’t published to any channel yet.


any update? still facing the same problem on a debian based distro.

the problem was fixed on updated version
