Native titlebar gone



  • After updating to 1.13 I only get Vivaldi's very thin titlebar (which I really don't like) and not the window manager's native titlebar.
    I'm running KDE Plasma / kwin.

    Thanks



  • Have you tried Tools->Settings->Appearance, check "Use Native Window", restart?



  • @mdw
    Oh thanks, it did the trick.

    I guess the new version reset that option for some reason.
    I was searching for "titlebar" in the Settings and didn't notice the "native window" option.

    Thanks!

    You're right, it did, for me too. I've been using V since Feb 2015, & mostly the updates occur smoothly without changing any of my settings. However occasionally an update here & there does muck up a bit... disabling Native Window has happened before as well. It's inconvenient rather than alarming once you have the longer historical perspective, but i imagine it might seem pretty confronting for newer users.

    Though this has not occurred to me for a very long time, another one to occasionally recheck after updates is this one, down at the bottom of the Advanced section of vivaldi://settings [maddeningly you have to type in chrome://settings/ to get to this]:

    Like most [many? some?] users, i want this OFF, but in older times some updates would reactivate it.

    Yes, thanks for the reminder. I've that one, too, and forgotten . . .

    I'd prefer open source everything, but I must say Vivaldi presents a better workflow on Linux than Firefox for me, so I stick with it.

    <<whilst we are now veering calamitously OT [i hope that @TbGbe never reads this, otherwise we're goners for sure] i'm happy to weigh in on this tangent [i lurve tangents; soooo much better than sines & cosines, pffft]>>

    Exactly. Anyone who's been in the V fora for a while, &/or has perused comment sections on many other sites, will know that there's a certain type of Linux enthusiast who are so ideologically dogmatic on their FOSS/GNU philosophy that they reject V summarily on this basis alone. Never mind the oft-stated fact that they can still inspect the code to their hearts' content. Never mind the awesome native functionality of V that already dwarfs all others & this is still only early days. Oh nooooooooooooo, we're not gonna use V coz we enjoy self-flagellation & hair-shirts. We are the very embodiment of noses, spite, faces & cutting.

    BTW, i energetically support & agree with GNU/FOSS, it's great... but practicality also counts for something.

    Handing back the hypotenuse now.



  • @steffie OH, AH, OA :zipper_mouth:
    I must be lucky, never had these settings changed by updates.
