Opening an URL from command line without raising Opera?
I am trying to open an URL from the command line without bringing Opera to the foreground.
I have tried:
opera -noraise -newtab http://www.opera.com/ opera -noraise -backgroundtab http://www.opera.com/
But both commands bring Opera to the foreground. The following commands, on the other hand, fail to open the URL, too:
opera -noraise -remote "openURL(http://www.opera.com/, noraise)" opera -noraise -remote "openURL('http://www.opera.com/', noraise)"
Any help? Thanks.
Version of Opera? As far as I know, the remote commands were specific to Opera 12 and earlier. But note, most window managers give a new window focus - that is, what you're asking will probably only work if Opera is already running. But look up commandline arguments for Chromium, if you are using Opera 35.
I am using Opera 35. Opera is running already, when I ask it to open a new tab, therefore it is Opera itself that is raising its window, not the window manager.
I couldn't find any command line flag for Chromium that could fix this issue. Thanks anyway.
