Opera - Can't open user profile directory
I got the following ominous sounding message as I was about to fire up my Opera browser at the office today:
I don’t believe I’ve seen this one before. However, when running the application from the terminal the output made a lot more sense:
ERROR:process_singleton_posix.cc(1025)] Failed to create socket directory. ERROR:opera_browser_main_parts.cc(1312)] Failed to create a ProcessSingleton for your profile directory.
I guess compiling that latest version of LibreOffice really did a number on my root partition. A quick look at the file system disk space usage confirmed the problem.
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/root 33G 32G 0 100% /
After deleting a few GB of temporary files, Opera started up without further complaints. Simple fixes are the best fixes ;-)
