Opera for Ubuntu: terminal commands list.

  • My English is not so good, so don't hesitate to ask again if you don't understand what I wrote. I use Ubuntu and Opera on my laptop. And i trying to create web-application by left panel.

    Exec=opera URL
    Icon=scr to icon

    This file (~/.local/share/applications/name.desktop) opens two pages in browser : basic and desired. What key is needed to open the desired page only? Where can I read list keys?

  • basic and desired

    With 'basic', do you mean that you've configured Opera to open one/a couple of sites every time Opera starts?

    What key is needed to open the desired page only? Where can I read list keys? Understandably?

    With 'key' I guess you mean command line switch. And unfortunately, the only ones you can see which are available, are the ones starting with --with-feature (listed with opera --help). I know there are more, but I haven't found any place listing them.

    One other thing, I recommend you to use type=link instead, which will open the default browser: (This way is more generic, you don't have to specify exec path for browser or icon, and if there is a browser open it will use it)

  • Opera will recognize a number of Chromium command line switches, but I've never seen a list for Chromium that doesn't list all switches regardless of platform.

  • If I understand you correctly, when you run the launcher opera opens 2 tabs.
    To avoid this, in opera "Settings > On startup" set it to "Open the start page".
    When using Ubuntu you could also add a quicklist to your normal opera launcher.
    Copy the opera launcher from /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share/applications
    and add a quicklist as in this example...
