I can not confirm this bug. Just installed opera and it works fine.

Try with Opera 9.26 (should be in repo soon).

BTW, it seems that opera-devel messes up the configs for opera in [extra]. If you tried the opera-devel package in [unstable] and want to go back to the opera in [extra], try the following:
$ mv ~/.opera ~/.opera.old
$ cp ~/.opera.old/* /.opera

Here it made opera start again and seems to restore (as far as I can tell) my original configs for opera.
