Opera Dev showing system title bars

  • I have a strange issue. Opera Dev 24.0.1558.3 for Linux suddenly started showing system title bars in Ubuntu 14.04. I don't think I did I anything to cause this. I checked the settings and flags to see if there's a way to turn them on or off, but there isn't unless I'm missing something. Does anyone have any suggestions to turn them off?

  • This seems to only happen in KDE, when I went into Cinnamon, Opera didn't show the title bars as normal.

  • This was done on purpose: to better integrate with the system you're running, Opera will use its own emulated borders only in Unity and Gnome Shell, and will use native borders on other window managers. We're not yet completely decided on this, but for now it seemed most people wanted us to respect their window manager if we're not able to emulate it.

    You can try switching this yourself using --force-native-window-frame={default,false,true}.

  • I'll try your suggestion. In principle, I agree with using system toolbars but white Opera toolbars and tabs looked odd with my KDE color scheme. Chromium seems to obey KDE's settings if I set it to use the GTK color theme and set GTK apps to the Oxygen-GTK theme. I think Opera can look good in KDE if did the same thing. Just have a setting to allow Opera to use the GTK+ theme and this should allow Opera to look better in Gnome 3 and Unity in addition to just KDE.

  • Be aware that you're using a Developer build :). More changes are planned for the theme and color scheme.
