I eventually resolved the problem by installing the packages below gtk2-engines-murrine murrine-themes Having installed them open tde control centre (system settings) appearance/gtk styles and fonts. Under GTK Styles choose use another style and chose one of the Murrine styles. I chose MurrinaBlue but probably any of the murrine styles will work. After a reboot I found that Opera was fixed. This was with Xubuntu Lucid 10.04 and Precise 12.04 both with TDE 22.214.171.124 Hoping this may resolve your problem. Nigel.
