why are you using a shell script to start opera?
right click on your desktop and create a link to application. there you can set the icon to use, the name that will be displayed on your desktop, and the command to execute which is just "opera" without the quotes.
if you want to include an icon in your kmenu or gnome menu, just basically add an item to the menu and choose all those things. then (if you didn't already have a desktop shortcut), you could can then open you kmenu or gnome menu like you would if you were going to start opera and drag it to your desktop to get a desktop shortcut.
edit: just had a thought. if you're using multiple versions of opera, then just make a link described above, but in the command to execute, put in the filepath to the shellscript.
