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.
