Hey, it's that time of the month again!
You know, the one that chromium gets updated from upstream, and a few days later distro's upgrade their chromium related packages.
After that, ubuntu users flood the forum whining that opera is broken again.
Please be patient
You are kinda lucky.
A friend of mine had an account at bet365 so I asked him to use my opera, log in there and try playing a live stream.
As it seems, all its live streams are in h264, thus they do not play in stock opera, and there is no fallback option for flash, thus having flash installed or not makes no difference. So all I have said at the other thread about opera's poor html5 support apply for your sites and distro as well.
One thing at a time...
For the installation part, you could just download opera's deb file, install it like usual by double clicking it and let dpkg do all that work for you Keep that in mind for next time you will need to install it fresh.
The missing o-menu button is a known bug that only affects unity users as it seems. Does it open when you press alt though?
If you really want to install an older version of opera, find its deb from here (go to "version number"/linux/ subfolder) and install it by hand.
Then put opera on hold so that apt won't upgrade it to a newer version like so
sudo apt-mark hold opera-stable
There's another twist to this Problem.
A while ago,I replaced windows with Linux on all familly-PC,so we got 3 laptops,one with Ubuntu Unity 16.04,one Kubuntu 16.04,one Mint 18.3 and 2 desktops with Mint 18.2 and 18.3.
The problem occurse only on all laptops.Editing the opera.desktop file in /usr/share/applications/ with: opera %U --start-maximized solves the problem.
BUT: With every update,it is overwritten AGAIN.
So it's an update problem too,and where is the difference between laptop and dektop?
@sgunhouse Thank you.
It seems to be intermittent. I'm not sure what triggers the fault. A site's menu might work fine the first few pages then suddenly the secondary nav tabs become non clickable.
I work with a lot of websites where I have to test each one's UX so I get to see this fault frequently.
This might be a related issue. Some sites lose keyboard page scroll functionality midway through a session. Again, it is an intermittent bug. The up and down arrow keys will work great for a couple of pages within a site then suddenly cease to function in their up/down scroll capacity. Scroll bar functionality continues to work. Mouse wheel continues to work. Keyboard up/down arrow keys cease to function. Keyboard otherwise works fine.
I too am downgrading to 54 until one of two things happen. Opera wises up and allows us to choose the window manger theme (ie give us the option to have Opera look like all other windows, especially in Linux + KDE) or I make the time to migrate all my bookmarks to Firefox.
I have used Opera for the past decade and I really love it, but Opera is now utterly hideous on Linux. Thank the heavens macOS forces Opera to obey its theming or I would migrating my bookmarks instead of posting this message.
On MX Linux, you should install libpam-gnome-keyring if you don't have it.
It automatically unlocks the default keyring for desktop apps upon system sign in.
There is a good article there explaining the situation and procedure.
Wow, I came here looking for a solution to remove the close, minimize and maximize buttons, the whole lot.
Running Debian on Xfce here, and the three buttons in the updated version of Opera get in the way of all the tabs I have.
Would be really nice if there was a way to remove the buttons (an option in settings perhaps), there are users on Linux that never use them anyway.
I know it's an old thread, but hey.....
For me, two solutions are working:
1 - For MAXIMIZED window edit Opera launcher -->right click on icon/ Properties/Application tab/ field Command: opera %U --start-maximized
2 - For CUSTOM window size edit Opera launcher -->right click on icon/ Properties/Application tab/ field Command: opera --window-position=118,64 --window-size=1682,951 %U
That sizes are actual settings for my desktop.
I'm on KDE Neon (Bionic 18.04), Opera 56.0.3051.31
There have been at least 2 threads since the release of opera 55 that the issue is discussed. In short, we named in "the ugly csd and its side effects"
In other words, what you now see when right clicking is a menu made by opera, not the menu of your window manager, because opera uses its own buttons for minimize/maximize/close.
p.s. Opera was updated to v56 today and the issue remains unsolved, so it will probably bug us all for some time.
