Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Am I correct in thinking that operp is an installed software related to openerp.com ? If so then this particular user seems to be a user installed by software to delegate permissions with. It's very common for software installed users to not have their own home folders. Since they aren't users like myself and you, they don't need their own desktop, and music folder and other things associated with a regular user, so they don't get one.
If the openerp user is the actual one that you are having issues with, maybe explaining why you need access to that users home entry might shed light on a better solution. There are ways to re-make that user, but those will likely reset some properties associated with that user which were set by the software. Off hand, I'm not sure what ones, that being said, I don't recommend that route.
