    Opera 7.11 and RH9

    I installed (via install.sh script) opera 7.11 on a RH9 system. I don't know how familiar anyone is with opera, but it has a built in mail client, which is what I use for email. Anyways, I added the opera link to my K menu, the program opens as it should, but I cannot access the mail section. The button for mail is grayed out. However, if I run it from the terminal ("opera"), the program opens and the mail is accessible. I tried to mess with the preferences in opera, and set it to 'use opera' for mail, but no luck. Anyone ever had this problem, or know where I might be able to look? Thanks in advance.

    this may seem obvious, but, is the command that is executed in the k-menu the same command you are executing on the command line?

    Well, I pointed to /usr/lib/opera..... for the kmenu, but from the command line, just type 'opera'. I am not sure how to find out what happens when I type 'opera' at the console (as far as what exactly it is running), but if you could enlighten me, that would be great!

    well, when you say 'opera' on the command line, it looks in a given set of directories, called your path for the opera binary. By putting /usr/lib/opera in there, you are giving the exact location for the binary you want to use. Try just using 'opera' for the Kmenu, that should help :P

    Oh okay... I thought it was a little more complicated than that. I understood the whole path thing, I just wasn't sure what happened when you typed 'opera'. I didn't realize that it was simply calling the binary. Thanks.

    type 'which opera' and it will tell you all the places its looking for it to run it.

    eg: $which mozilla
    /usr/bin/mozilla
