I'm using the latest Opera 46.0 on linux.
Is there a way to launch Opera from the command line so that it always opens a new browser window? I don't want ever it to open a new tab in an existing Opera browser window under these circumstances.
Thank you very much.
I figured it out. It turns out that at least some of the info for Unix at the following site is incorrect:
Those docs say that the way to force a new window is with the newwindow option, preceded by a dash ("-"), i.e. ...
opera -newwindow [ ... other arguments ... ]
However, that does not work. After running strings /usr/bin/opera and searching, I discovered that the option is actually new-window.
Therefore, the correct command to cause opera to always create a new window upon launch is this:
opera -new-window [ ... other arguments ... ]
Someone should change the incorrect info at http://www.opera.com/docs/switches/
The page says it was last updated for version 11.61, which was based on Presto. The new Blink-based Opera accepts many switches listed for Chromium, but switches for Presto will not work.
I think all pages under http://www.opera.com/docs/ should be deleted since they are obsolete and sometimes misleading.
