Opera Developer - title bar and borders

theme
#1

Hello,
Is there someone knowing how to get back the system title bar and decoration in Opera-developer? Last update from AUR made it look like a Windows 10 ripoff. I “hate” that big red button and the fact that i can’t use the default KDE Plasma decoration. :slight_smile:
See the image in your left compared to the default Opera in your right.

Opera doesn't use Plasma KDE style

You can check opera://flags page. If there is a setting to disable new design it should be there.

Thanks, but reading trough all of them don’t seem to help my case.

Is it a gtk app?

You could try using gtk3-classic, which can allow “normal” client side decorations to be displayed.

This worked for me when firefox went in a similar UI direction, displayed the default Plasma window decorations.

Was my first thought when i saw the “new interface” and i installed gtk3-classic but it didn’t help. Is like this Opera is something else. Spent more that 2 hours yesterday and another 5 hours today to look for clues and it simply escapes me …

Just installed Opera and I get what you show on the right picture. So maybe it is a matter of uninstalling, removing the opera folder and re-install to start all over.
It’s not what you want to hear, but a clean install works for me.
First secure what you want to keep: favorites for example.

Opera and Opera-developer don’t overlap. I use them both, as i use also Falkon, Chromium, Google-Chrome-Unstable, Firefox and Vivaldi. Opera is fine.
To the opera-developer something changed and even in a fresh install will look the same, it’s own decorations and buttons.

Sorry if this will look like a slight necrobump, but i just wanted to add that also Opera-Beta does the same thing now, so i’m guessing the developers are going to push the same “look and feel” at one point to Opera stable too :frowning:

#9

Yeah. Client Side Decorations is the new hotness. It’s only a matter of time until Firefox and Chrome is pushing down our throats too.

#10

On KDE plasma simply looks odd, doesn’t integrate at all with what i have. The resize from corners or from side border is a pain, is like i never hit the right pixel, while all the Plasma decorated windows simply let me do that with no hassle …

#11

Not a fix, but you could use special application settings/no title bar and frame. That’s always one way of getting rid of an eye sore.

#12

That’s the thing, in fact i want it to use Plasma Title bars and windows, and there is no way it seems, or i don’t look where i should. It doesn’t follow the GTK+ theme, the menu is one thing and nothing changes it, while there is a dropdown menu for the opened tabs that takes just part of GTK3 theme. Is a visual mess, plus those ugly close, maximize and minimize buttons are huge and very Window$i. For now only Opera stable is ok, but i’m afraid is going to do the same thing soon. Previously only Opera-Developer was doing this, now also Opera-Beta …

The latest stable version (55.0.2994.37) is doing this now also. I don’t care for it either.

Yeah, what i was afraid it came to be real. Not a big deal, but this will alienate me from Opera. I might downgrade the stable one and exclude it from updates. Used only for some art related blogs and posts, but i preferred to have the KDE decorations, and manage the windows the same way as other applications.

#15

The only way to have it back, at least optional, is to comment on opera forum

Edit:
In KDE Plasma 5 you can force Opera to use titlebar by setting Kwin rule:
