Opera aint working.


Hello!
I am new to Linux. I have Slackware 13.0. And I installed Opera with installpkg ,but Opera aint working. When I find it in application menu and click it it just loading for couple seconds and disapears. When I try to launch it from directory in Konsole i got something like this -

root@milda:/opera-10.10-4742.gcc4-shared-qt3.i386# ./opera
usr/lib/opera/opera: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Thank you.

That version appears to use Qt 3.x, which Slackware doesn't have any more. Looking at www.slackbuilds.org, it seems that you can get Opera that uses Qt 4.x (which Slackware 13.0 does have) from http://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/opera/linux/1...4.i386.tar.bz2.

For information, SlackBuilds.org is a site that contains SlackBuild scripts (these are shell scripts that compile and build Slackware packages) for many programs.

Thanks for the site. I downloaded and installed qt4 version of Opera, but now there is another error:

root@milda:/opera-10.10-4742.gcc4-qt4.i386# ./opera
No protocol specified
opera: cannot connect to X server :0.0
opera: Fatal error on creating Qt application object

Thanks you

Do you have X running (i.e. do you have a GUI?)? Also, you shouldn't be using the root account all the time - this is a security risk. If you haven't created a regular (non-root) account for yourself yet, do this by running "adduser".

Yes I have KDE runing. Yes I have user that aint root, I just use root in Konsole, but when I use the user it have another error -

nils@milda:/opera-10.10-4742.gcc4-qt4.i386$ opera*
The Opera binary is not located at "/usr/lib/opera/10.10/opera".
Please modify the wrapper script at "/usr/bin/opera".

Thank you

You probably want to run the install.sh script to put the files in the "right" place. You'll probably need to be root to do that. If you've already done that, then modify the script as the error message says.

I assume nothing, because I assume that the install script put the files in the default location. Can you run Opera now?

Good to hear it works. Please mark your thread as solved (I believe you'll see an option for this if you click "Thread Tools" at the top of this page).

I don't know to be honest, as I don't use Opera. Google this and see what you can find.
