Can somebody guide me on how to stop Opera v 60.0 from updating automatically. (Mint 19 ) In windows I think I had to rename the auto update exe file .

If you look in
Code: [Select]
sudo xed /etc/apt/sources.list.d/opera-stable.list
you'll see a line like
Code: [Select]
deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)
just comment it out, so it reads
Code: [Select]
## deb https://deb.opera.com/opera-stable/ stable non-free #Opera Browser (final releases)
and save the file.

The problem with this is Opera's VPN is known to sometimes stop working when they release a new version .. so if that's what you use it for.....
