Opera 48.0 will not open in maximized window
I've tried every trick I know but Opera 48.0 will always open in a small window & not a maximized window using Ubuntu 16.04. Is there a remedy to this?
Bonjour, I have the same issue with linuxmint 18.2 (ubuntu 16), more than that, if you use alt+f10 tomaximize the window, the choice is not saved and you have to do it again next time you start opera.
Any solution will be welcome
There you go
After reading different posts, I tried
And it worked fine so case closed for me.
You either launch it, e.g from a terminal or from a run dialog app, as I said in the other thread or edit it's desktop file (= it's icons shortcut).
To edit the .desktop file, open (as root)
with a text editor and change line 7 from
Exec=opera %U --start-maximized
Save, close the file and you are done.
2 things to consider
a) Updating/reinstalling opera wil overwrite the file, so you will have to do it again.
b) The issue has existed before opera 48
Actually, it's probaby better to update the properties of the opera icon you use and to target "opera --start-maximized" , doing so you will not be overwritten by product updates or re-installation
