You can work around this for now by creating a /etc/operaprefs_default.ini file that contains:
This will disable Gtk styling support and hence avoid the issue. Once the bug is fixed by us or the Gtk team you can remove this workaround.

Edit: deb.opera.com has been updated with repackaged files that have corrected dependencies. My original post is included below for historical reasons.
A few users have reported problems with installing Opera 11.51 (or Opera Next 12.00 snapshots) on older Debian based distros due to the fact that our packages depend on versions of libfontconfig1 and libglib2 that are more recent than are available in the official repositories of those distros.
In fact Opera will actually run with slightly older versions of those libs. The problem arose because the packaging script we use picked up the versions of libfontconfig1 and libglib2 installed on the machine that built Opera and set those versions
In the future we will try to be more careful to set dependencies to better match the libs that are actually needed. In the mean time I have some work arounds for you.

For video to work in 10.50 (Evenes) on Linux/UNIX, you need the the GStreamer Multimedia Framework, the Base Plugins package and the main Good libraries. This ensures that the following are available on your system: libgstautodetect.so, libgstogg.so, libgsttheora.so, libgstvorbis.so, libgstwavparse.so.
On some distros there is one GStreamer Good package that contains everything and on others this is split into two packages, GStreamer Good (the main libraries) and GStreamer Good Plugins (the plugin libraries).
If you don't have these installed and are unsure exactly which packages will provide these libraries for your distro, you can use your distro's favoured method of searching for packages. Typically this will be search options within your package manager, but it may also be a dedicated wesbite. Generally you can install the GStreamer Good Plugins package and your package manager's dependency resolution will ensure you get any further packages you need. If you have a distro that splits "Good", you can be more selective and just install the main Good libraries, leaving out the Good plugins.
