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.

You've installed the Qt shared version when you should have got the Qt Static version. Go back to the opera homepage and download the very bottom option (Qt Static, tar.gz - don't worry, it's not source) then try again.
Qt is a toolkit for created Graphical User Interfaces. If you have Qt installed in a standard location on your machine then you can use the shared libraries, assuming they're the same version as the libraries against which Opera was compiled. If you don't have Qt or you don't have the same version of the libraries installed then you can use the static version - this means that the opera binaries include the necessary parts of Qt for opera to run.
In short -
shared = uses the libraries on your machine if you have them
static = has the libraries built in so you don't need them already installed.
You'll notice the static version was a slightly bigger file - that's why.
Distribution: SuSE 9.0Pro-9.1-9.2, Knoppix 3.4-3.6-STD, Red Hat Linux 7.0, Solaris 9
I hmay have a possible solution for you as well. It actually requires less work. I am running SuSE 9.0 Pro right now and everytime i tried to run Opera it gave me the same exact error. Well, after awhile I just gave up and decided to stick with Konqueror (or a different version of nautilus). Well I was just browsing around and messing with some things and i figured out if you run the command "/usr/X11R6/bin/opera/" it brings up the Opera web browser with no problems. So as of late I've been using Opera instead of Konqueror. This MAY work for you and then again it MAY not work for you becuz of the inconsistencies with the file system standards between distros.
