Opera detected the plugin and I thought all was sorted - BUT I had to enable the option in Opera to use Java. This is found in Tools->Quick Preferences->Enable Java.

Maybe you just haven't selected this option... just maybe :-)
You're my Opera wizard!!!!!! Thanks man!!!!

Thanks but I think Gasykel's alternative method (which I didn't know about at the time, as I had just started using Opera, is better). Go to 'Tools->Preferences', then look for the 'content' option on the 'advanced' tab. Click 'Java Options' and enter the path to your java install. Mine is '/usr/lib/java/jre/lib/i386'.

I would think that this is the recommended way of doing this.
