Steps to reproduce:
* On Arch Linux+Gnome install Opera from AUR repositories
* After installation is done, start Opera
* Maximize window
* Close Opera
* Open Opera
Opera will start in maximized window as it was closed
Opera will start in smaller window and must be maximized again
Same here (debian testing x64, openbox and opera installed from their repo). There is already an open topic about it, so please post there
I found this list http://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/#start-maximized
and it shows "-start-maximized" as a parameter.
Put it in the Opera launcher and bingo.
Opera now opens maximized with this command in the launcher:
opera %U --start-maximized
Thanks a lot for the tip!
Here's where this stands now:
Opera now doesn't open properly in Linux Mint anymore, it doesn't open maximized by itself.
If you open the launchers and change the command from "opera %U" to "opera %U --start-maximized", then it opens mid-size at first, then jumps to maximize. This is great!
However, this only works in each specific launcher, and the "new window" and "new private window" options from the icon on the taskbar/panel, well, their launchers are "missing" - can't find them anywhere.
Below is the file "opera.desktop" from "/usr/share/applications" in Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon.
it's the only file I can find that refers to "new window" and "private window" - I couldn't find anything about opera in "~/.local/share/applications/" but there's other copies of this in
But when I edit the 2 lines that say
"Exec=opera --new-window" to say "Exec=opera --new-window, --start-maximized"
"Exec=opera --private" to say "Exec=opera --private, --start-maximized"
there's no change in the window behaviour. What am I doing wrong here?
This is the file, I edited it as root even:
Comment=Fast and secure web browser
Exec=opera %U --start -maximized
[Desktop Action NewWindow]
[Desktop Action NewPrivateWindow]
Name=New Private Window
I'm really getting lost here - do we have someone who can see what I'm doing wrong? Does anybody know the right syntax for this? Specifically the "EXEC" lines.
How do I edit this so you can read the file contents? It's messed up.
You just change the 7th line in the file from
Exec=opera %U --start-maximized
And here are the contents of the whole opera.desktop file if you want to check
(the link is valid for 7 days)
new to both opera and also linux mint.
I see your advice but not sure how to impliment.
Can you do a step by step for a learner please
Open the opera.desktop file like so
sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/opera.desktop
Find the line I mention above (the 7th one) and change it to what I say. Then save and exit.
Put command in with this reply:sudo: gedit/usr/share/applications/opera.desktop: command not found
There is a SPACE between "gedit" and "/usr/share/blablabla"...
Please type it correctly
