I am a happy user of Google Calendar across different machines, browsers. However, when I am working with Opera 12.16 on my Ubuntu 12.04 machine, opening Google Calendar will automatically select the mobile version of the calendar, which is annoying.

How can I fix this problem? Is this an identification issue? GMail and Google Search just show up normal.

You could try changing your "User Preferences" to always show the Desktop version of a website.

  1. If you type opera:config in the address bar you will be presented with the "Preferences Editor".
  2. Expand the "User Prefs" option and copy the below into the "Custom User Agent" field:

For Mac/Linux:

Opera/9.80 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X; U; en) Presto/2.2.15 Version/10.10

For Windows:

Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.1; U; en) Presto/2.2.15 Version/10.10

Finally, scroll to the bottom, click Save and then OK on the next dialog to confirm the changes.

Thanks! The Mac solution works for me on Ubuntu. – Bernhard Oct 20 '13 at 10:33
Nice, good to know. – Yass Oct 20 '13 at 10:33
If I change it to Opera/9.80 (Linux; Ubuntu 12.04; U; en) Presto/2.2.15 Version/10.10 it also correctly identifies as Ubuntu. – Bernhard Oct 20 '13 at 10:38
Forget about this last remark, then my original problem reappears :) – Bernhard Oct 20 '13 at 10:39
So you're saying it doesn't work if you change the information to Linux; Ubuntu 12.04? – Yass Oct 20 '13 at 10:44

Use the Google Calendar's desktop URL instead of the mobile version's URL.

The link from GMail inbox automatically redirects me to the /m variant. – Bernhard Oct 28 '13 at 12:25
