Two issues with Opera on Manjaro (Gnome / Wayland)

  • Two issues with Opera 54.0.2952.60 on Manjaro (Gnome / Wayland):

    1. Maximize / Minimuize / Close buttons disappear when maximized. This was reported by people as far back as 2016, it seems (Google fu) and still an issue??
    2. If I close Opera and don't run an app (any app) before opening it again, the system hangs for several minutes before Opera suddenly pops on screen, and auto-maximizes for some reason.
  • I believe you should learn to use the desktop environment you are at, this buttons are not provide by Opera but by the decoration setup from the environment you are using (Gnome, Kde, etc.)

    On Debian you can setup to show or hide this buttons.

    1. Seems like a gnome issue to me.
    2. Blame gnome and/or wayland. Use xorg and/or another desktop enviroment to check.
  • I have Opera 54.0.2952.64 on Manjaro XFCE

    1. I get similar issue with window buttons not shown when maximised
      There is a close button to right of tab menu, but nothing is visible except a hover tootltip "Close"
      Double clicking in blank space to left of tab menu will restore window size

    2. no problem with re-opening or auto-maximising
