No, I mean Opera beta version 4.0b4 ..... I do not have
konquerer on my box.

The thing to be done here is to download the statically 
linked version (since  Opera is linked to kde2),  which 
is not  installed on regular potato boxes.  If you down
load the statically linked version,  you can do without 
installing the kdelibs for kde2. This an issue which is 
independent of window-manager dependence.

I  had  downloaded the beta in .deb  format from one of
the links on www.opera.com ( I think Polish, just don't
remember) in ".deb" format few weeks ago. The main site
at Netherlands was a bit too busy at that time. This is
in response to a subsequent post on this thread.
