This tutorial explains how to configure Opera so that it will blend with your Plasma applications. To do this, we'll need to install the Opera Oxygen Project skin, set Opera to use your chosen Plasma Desktop scheme, and change Opera's default fonts to the ones which KDE uses.


This tutorial is written for Opera 10 or later. Make sure that you're using Plasma's default icon theme, Oxygen, since the Opera Oxygen Project skin uses icons from Oxygen.

Step 1: Installing the Skin

Open Opera and navigate to the following link:

Click Download Skin to install the Opera Oxygen Project skin.


In more recent versions of Opera, You don't need to proceed to steps two or three! This has been observed in Opera 10.63.

Step 2: Applying the Skin & Changing the Color Scheme

Go to Tools -> Appearance.

In the Skins box, you will see a list of all the skins that are currently installed. Click on opera_oxygen_project_[version] to apply the Opera Oxygen Project skin to Opera.

Click on the menu box next to Color Scheme and select System Color Scheme to let Opera use KDE's color scheme.

Step 3: Changing the Font

Go to Tools -> Preferences. Click on the Web Pages tab.

Opera has two default fonts - the normal font and the monospace font. You can change these default fonts by clicking on them. Change the normal font to DejaVu Sans and change the monospace font to DejaVu Sans Mono.

That's it! Now Opera will look and feel just like your Plasma applications.
