Opera not running as user on SuSE 8.2

On SuSE 8.2 I installed Opera from rpm. Yast went true the procedure and all went fine. Strange thing is that I can only open Opera as root. Trying to start it as user results in a changing cursor for a few seconds and then nothing. Opening a terminal, su and Opera opends it without problems.
I want to run Opera as user obviously, what should I do?
I installed from user, needed the su password for yast and can't a lot of difference with the Mandrake install which works fine?

Try starting it from a terminal without su-ing to root. Post any errors.
