I've been using Opera since around ver.22, and it's always used the native toolkit -- QT4, I run Arch Linux w/KDE (Plasma 5). After the most recent update, the toolkit used by opera seems to have changed to gtk3. This bugs the crap out of me, b/c when I download, I'm forced to use the gtk3 file manager, which pales horribly in comparison to QT4's (Dolphin). Is this something I can control? More importantly, why did it even change?

GUI toolkit choice?Opera for Linux
RE: Soundcloud issuesOpera for Linux
Was able to resolve this by following this post: https://forums.opera.com/topic/11041/vines-don-t-work/3
The only difference being, I'm on Arch Linux, and so my package name was different (from the AUR, aur/opera-ffmpeg-codecs).
RE: Soundcloud issuesOpera for Linux
Awesome, thanks for this. It does NOT work for MP3. Possible solutions? Might I be missing a library or something?
Soundcloud issuesOpera for Linux
I can't seem to play anything from Soundcloud.com within Opera (even with extensions disabled), though with Chrome and Firefox, Soundcloud works fine. I've tried disabling 'encrypted media extensions' in opera://flags, but to no avail. Oddly enough, soundcloud isn't the only flash-based player I have trouble with, and this seems to have happened sometime around Opera 28-30. Has anyone else seen this issue? Hate having to pull up another browser to get basic functionality out of a website (though, used to it, being a previous Presto-Opera user)
RE: Opera 31. Spotify Web Player not working...Opera for Linux
Having the same issue (with similar pages that use Flash). Glad I'm not the only one. It seems to have happened after the latest update (or the one prior to that).
RE: Websites with self-signed certsOpera for Linux
Thanks a lot l33t4opera. The issue was actually on my end (doh!). I had let my cert StartCom SSL cert expire. Heh, but at least this also gave me the time to harden my Cipher settings on the server as well as update with a new cert Wouldn't even have thought to look had you not given the above link and which caused me to take a look at the cert details, haha. Thanks again man.
Websites with self-signed certsOpera for Linux
I'm having an issue with sites that use a self-signed SSL certificate. Namely, my webmail -- I use Roundcube as a front-end to a personal mail server that I run.
This used to not be an issue, so this must've happened with a recent update. I have the flag "#remember-cert-error-decisions" set to one month in opera://flags, and this used to work perfectly. However, now, every 5 mins or so I need to "re-accept" the self-signed cert, as I'm prompted with the "Invalid Certificate" pop-up. Is this by design? I recall Chromium recently making some changes to the way it handles self-signed certs, if I'm not mistaken.
Thanks for any insight guys.

etchoom YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for posting that. I had no idea that even existed!!
RE: [DNA-30545] The bug is still here.Opera for Linux
Glad to hear this is corrected in v29. Since I'm using stable, I'll have to wait until then to have the benefit of remembered window-size -- only a minor inconvenience really, but one I'd love to see corrected. I do have "Continue where I left off" selected, FWIW.
RE: Import bookmarks from ChromeOpera for Linux
Awesome, thanks so much. I knew I'd done it before, but I couldn't remember how, and I was finding much via searching. Thanks again!
Import bookmarks from ChromeOpera for Linux
Is it still not possible to do so? I'm not seeing an obvious way to do it within opera://bookmarks
RE: Opera resets the window sizeOpera for Linux
This happens to me as well, pretty annoying but I can tolerate it for now. Would be awesome to get it fixed.

RE: Where does your distro install Pepper FlashOpera for Linux
Pepper Flash was installed using the AUR package. I initially had it installed for Chromium (as I refuse to use Chrome). Opera found it flawlessly.
RE: Why Opera is stopping for Linux ?Opera for Linux
Excellent answers @ruario. I must say, I waited what seemed like an eternity for the linux release of the Blink version of Opera. In the mean time, I'd begun using Chromium, as I was put off by the desertion of Presto Opera, and Firefox just did not do it for me. Chromium was pretty good in it's own right, but I longed for Opera to release their Linux version. The developer version(s) that was initially released was pretty buggy -- something I knew would be the case since it was indeed the dev version. However, this new beta version has been nearly flawless, and I'm in love with Opera again. There are still some things to iron out, but for the most part, I feel ok to use Opera as my main browser again. Even better that I can install [almost] all of the extensions I'd been using in Chromium. The only downsides for me are minor gripes about something I can't change -- features that were in the Presto version like vertical tab bar -- and thus I refrain from complaining about them. Just happy to be back with Opera again
RE: StashFuture releases
Meh...really wish they could've been kept separate, but it's not a showstopper, lol. Thanks man.
Has stash been replaced/merged with Bookmarks?
RE: Titlebar on Linux (1606 build)Future releases
avi - Thanks for replying.
I'm aware of the KDE settings for this, the issue with using them is the fact that I would still be missing the minimize/maximize/close buttons in the top right I'll check if Opera 25 has the ability to add/customize these buttons, but I haven't seen them since Opera 12.x. Thanks again.
Titlebar on Linux (1606 build)Future releases
I'm no longer able to force the Unity titlebar after an upgrade to 25.0.1606.0. Has the command-line switch changed?
I used to be able to add "--force-native-window-frame=false" to force Unity's title bar even in KDE (my DE of choice) -- this basically remove's KDE's titlebar and add's the minimize, maximize and close buttons in the upper-right corner...looks much cleaner in my opinion.
Has this option been removed?
