If you installed it through rpm you can do:

rpm -e opera

The -e switch stands for 'erase'. To find out exactly what opera package you have you can do:

rpm -qa | grep opera

but using the -e switch will take care of getting rid of opera for you.

( Sorry Crashed_Again same time )

To make sure its not there anymore do:

rpm -qa | grep opera

If it returns nothing then no package by the name of opera is installed.
