Start opera maximized.?

  • As start opera maximized.??? always starts at half window i use manjaro linux

  • Edit the default opera shortcut (/usr/share/applications/opera.desktop) so that instead of this

    Exec=opera %U

    it lauches this

    Exec=opera --start-maximized %U

    and repeat for the 2 more lines starting with "Exec" under "[Desktop Action NewWindow]" and "[Desktop Action NewPrivateWindow]" if needed.

  • opera --start-maximized %U is what what worked for me.

  • don't work at version 60.0.3255.70
    but in opera.desktop have Exec=opera --start-maximized %U
    (((

  • No problem here with 60.0.3255.70, as with all the previous versions of opera.
    If you close all opera windows and launch it from a terminal like so

    opera --start-maximized

    does it start maximized?

    I try that today and it works perfect - if you do it as root 😜
    With OpenSuse Leap 15.1 and Tumbleweed it's great.
    Thx 😉

  • What do yoy mean "as root"? It works for me if you run opera the way I say above, but as a user. You can also edit opera's shortcut so as to always launch with --start-maximized with simple user rights.
    Unless you mean that you changed the /usr/share/applications/opera.desktop, where you do need root rights.

  • @jimunderscorep
    OpenSuse Tumbleweed or Leap ist not manjaro linux; you need the root to change major setting on the system. If you can do that without root-rights, the you have a big problem with your system 🙂

  • Can you please describe the exact procedure you do in opensuse in order to change a .desktop file?

  • @jimunderscorep

    See, that's where the difference lies:
    I can do that as a user, no problem, because I edit my own profile.
    Installed programs, or program folders, for this I need root rights.
    Open the console, type Pw, then do the required action.
    Mostly I work with
