We want to deploy opera 20 but we want mime type for our IHM launch file lnk on our server.
Thanks for your reply,

Have the server send the mime you want. Then, Opera will pop up a save dialog so you can save the file. After you do, in the download status after the download is complete, you can double-left-click the download, to launch the file in the default handler for that file time on the system.
I don't know of a way in Chrome or Opera to edit mime type mappings and edit the actions for them (including the option to open a file type directly (even automatically) when you click a link to it).
There's so more info here if you want to an extension that can change the mime type to something different than what the server sends. But, I don't know if that's what you want or not. Remember that you can download chrome extensions for Opera.
Also, I see there's https://forums.opera.com/topic/1459/where-do-you-set-the-default-actions-for-filetypes-in-opera-20 that pretty much asks the same question as yours.
