    Default How to install Vivaldi browser

    How do install Vivaldi browser in Tumbleweed? Do you use RPM file? I'm used to Debian and would like to install in Tumbleweed. Thanks

    Download the RPM from their website. Open terminal, change directory to RPM download location, and type

    Code:
    sudo zypper install [full-title-of-vivaldi-browser].rpm
    Do the same when you want to upgrade to the next release - download it, do the same, and zypper will ask if you want to upgrade the original rpm (provided they are both the same type; stable / snapshot)

    Well, openSUSE is RPM based. Thus an RPM would give you the best chance. I see on their website they have a choice od 32 bit and 64 bit. I assume you use a 64 bit system.

    But beware, that the RPM might not be trimmed for use on openSUSE, thus the place where the files are stored may deviate from what is normal in openSUSE. Also dependencies may differ (using other package names then those used in openSUSE)). Thus, apart from sometbody here jumping in and explaining how (s)he did it, you should just experiment (and make notes of what you did, to be able to reverse those actions).

    It's a nicely done RPM from what I've seen. Installs to opt and lets zypper detect any future upgrade rpm as just that, keeps settings, etc.

    Thank you!

    just tried to go to Downloads which is there with the Vivaldi .rpm but I get this:

    davek@linux-6kvw:~> su
    Password:
    linux-6kvw:/home/davek # cd /Downloads
    bash: cd: /Downloads: No such file or directory
    linux-6kvw:/home/davek # exit
    exit

    Why does this happen?

    Use your file manager to get the exact path. I download to desktop usually but exact path is /home/me/Desktop/

    So change directory for me would be:

    Code:
    cd /home/me/Desktop/
    .

    Thanks. That's what was needed. terminal is different from Debian. Here's what it took:

    davek@linux-6kvw:~/Downloads> su

    is there a Key to install? Or is this OK. Seems like Tumbleweed wants you to make sure that's its secure.

    No key yet, I just accepted defaults and used it, I know where it came from and they're legit.

    Also if you go in Yast software management you can now see Vivaldi browser from there

    Great. Thanks again. Have to say that the Opensuse forum is very helpful.
