(Sorry, no this is not a new snapshot but one is coming soon, I promise).
What is this post about then? Well, every snapshot includes a link like this:
This is for users on Linux distributions where no Vivaldi snapshot package is provided or the one offered is out of date. It is something I wrote for my own usage as an avid Slackware fan, and someone who tests Vivaldi on a wide range of distros. Since I found it handy and others on this blog complained about the lack of snapshot packages for their distro of choice, I started to share it.
Anyway, if you are someone who uses this install script, fetch the new version today— before the next snapshot. This is needed because a change in the future snapshot will cause a bug in the older version of script to rear its head, and that will prevent uninstall or upgrade.
So are you reading this in the future, after the snapshot arrived and you continued to use the old script? 😉
Don’t worry, just patch the uninstall script like so:
- For single user Vivaldi installs (performed without root or sudo):
sed -i '/update-widevine/d' ~/.local/share/remove-vivaldi-snapshot.sh
- For system wide Vivaldi installs (root/sudo):
sudo sed -i '/update-widevine/d' /usr/local/bin/remove-vivaldi-snapshot.sh
And now fetch the new version.
