Opera from slackbuild doesn't work


Hello,

I'm running Slackware 13.0 and tried to install Opera. I downloaded the 32 bit version and built and installed it ... no compilation or installation errors. When I run it (/usr/bin/opera) I got the following error message

/usr/lib/opera-9.64/opera: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I grepped MANIFEST for libqt-mt.so.3 and couldn't find it. I searched slackbuild and couldn't find it.

Thanks in advance for your help

This may or may not have anything to do with it, but....
perhaps the source the link at slackbuilds.org points you to, is for the Slackware 12.2 version?

I say this because, if you were to download Opera 10, from the link on their main page,

http://www.opera.com

it will give you a qt3 version as they don't, yet, show an option for Slackware 13, which runs, I believe, qt4.

You might try going to this page,

http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/

and follow the links to the download page for the latest version. I running it and haven't had any problems. The 32 bit version can be found here,

http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/snaps...9/intel-linux/

Be sure and download a qt4 version.
I hope that helps.
BTW, these are binary packages. No compiling necessary.

To install, download to whatever directory/folder you like.
Unpack it using, for example,

tar -xvzf opera-10.10-4609.gcc4-qt4.i386.tar.gz

Then "cd" to, opera-10.10-4609.gcc4-qt4.i386

Change to root by running the "su" command and entering your password.

Once done, at the command prompt type, ./install.sh

Say yes to the few questions and you're done.

Exit as root and fire up Opera as user.
Works every time for me.
Good luck.

Or you can go into the kde3-compat directory in the extra/ folder on the cd/dvd and install qt3. qt3 may be needed for other applications as well, so it probably wouldn't hurt and they can co-exist peacefully. Although it may be interesting to give opera running qt4 a go.

This is the correct answer. I was able to install Opera only after installing qt3. I wasn't able to get it to work with qt4 at all.

Thanks for the replies.

I downloaded and copied to disk the first 3 CDs of the slackware 13.0 distribution, and couldn't find the extra directory.

find copy_of_CDx -name extra

where copy_of_CDx, with x = 1,2,3 is a copy of one of the CDs. I also searched for qt3kde-compat with no luck.

I didn't look in CDs 4,5 and 6 because I thought they were just the sources of the stuff in CD1,2 and 3.k

As mentioned above, if you download a qt4 version of Opera you shouldn't have any problems and qt3 isn't needed.

This method worked for me as well. As soon as I had the kde3-compat stuff installed Opera runs like it should.

I see now that there is a qt4 version on slackbuilds. That must be relativly new. I installed that 9.64 version that was there a week ago. Thanks for the heads up.

For the OPs reference:

Thanks everyone.

The missing package was on disk 4, which I thought contained only sources. I installed the compatibility library and it worked.

Just an FYI, you can browse the directories online. If you had only done discs 1-3, you could've gone online to one of the many slackware mirrors and downloaded just that one file and installed it.
