Vivaldi strives to be a browser for everyone, which is why we support so many different workflows, operating systems and desktop architectures. Up until now we have only produced Linux .rpm and .deb packages and yet, Vivaldi is already in use on a far wider range of Linux distributions. This is possible due to the Linux community of package maintainers, who repackage our official packages for our shared userbase. Unfortunately, in many cases these non-official packages are only maintained for the stable update stream, leaving some of our fans out in the cold with regards to trying out our snapshots.
In the future, we hope this situation will improve, as we plan to introduce support for Snap packages. In the mean time (and for users of distros where Snap is not introduced), we are now providing a shell script that automates extracting the contents of a Vivaldi snapshot package and installing it, along with a convenient uninstall script. To use, simply issue the following in a terminal window and press “Enter”:
curl -s https://downloads.vivaldi.com/snapshot/install-vivaldi.sh | sh
To upgrade to newer builds in the future, re-run this command whenever a new snapshot blog post comes out.
Note: This script is provided for users where no native package is readily available. For Vivaldi stable releases, we strongly recommend you use one of our official packages or ask your distribution if they provide unofficial repacks. We are more than happy to work with distribution maintainers to help facilitate this.
