If you want to use the opera package from opera, get the static version
and you should have no problems. There is a suse rpm at:
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/update/9.0/rpm/i586/opera-7.50-1.i586.rpm

note: the opera static rpm does not place the files in the same
location as the suse rpm....


I have also just upgraded Opera 7.23 to 7.5 on SuSE 9.1:

# rpm -Uvh opera-7.50-20040511.1-static-qt.i386-en.rpm

On the Sun Java Desktop system R2 I have made a new install (-ivh). Earlier I installed and used 7.5 P2 (prerelease) on Suse 9.0.

In all my cases Opera 7.5 works fine, starts OK from the KDE 3.2 Application menue or from the "dragged" Opera icon placed on the bottom panel.

But for font bettering, I have installed and configured 100 dpi fonts and True Type (MS)Fonts.
