@mib2berlin said in Vivaldi on a btrfs file system.:
Hi, Opensuse use Btrfs regular for / and XFS for /home.
I copied vivaldi-snapshot from /opt to /home but cant get it to start from there, it always start /opt/vivaldi-snapshot/vivaldi-snapshot
Any hint for this?
I can test the two file systems one one system, would be interessting.
Vivaldi start very fast on my Linux systems, all with SSD, < 2 second speed dial only and 5 extensions.
The Vivaldi installer puts files in /usr/share and /etc in addition to /opt so you will run into path issues moving it to /home. You can probably hack the .deb or .rpm to use another install path, but I have never done it. If someone has feel free to chime in.
In your case your profile will be stored and loaded from xfs. it's the performance of Vivaldi where both application and profile is stored on btrfs I am interested in. But good to know that you have a -2 second start-up! 🙂
Thanks for reporting your issue and sorry for the trouble. The dev team is currently looking into performance issues, so please report them on vivaldi.com/bugreport so they can get as much information as possible to be able to fix it. Thanks in advance for your help 🙏
@MikeRL100 It would be interesting to know how much time you are actually speaking of. "Slow" does not mean a lot in the absence of some frame of reference.
The software on this machine takes between half a second and 23 seconds to open, with all browsers opening in the 1-4 second range, Vivaldi among them opening in about 3 seconds.
What is "slow" on your system?
@Ayespy making vivaldi use only the integrated graphics seem to have improved it so far!
which is odd, considering it's less powerful, but at the same time, it has more dedicated memory (4 GB) than the nvidia GPU (2 GB) although that's probably not how it works, but i wouldn't know 😛
@Ayespy Okay, it gets a bit weird now. I whitelisted it in Trendmicro, and it all was fine. Then I de-whitelisted it, to counter-check, and it still was fine. So it might just have been some hickup.
Thanks anyway 🙂
Got the same bug earlier at Firefox, later and lesser at Opera GX, now at Vivaldi. It's only YouTube (no other lag players found), there's no framedrops at fullscreen but still a bit twitchy. My config is:
Intel Core i7-8550U (ultrabook processor witrh integrated Intel 630 graphics)
Nvidia 1070 card throug Aorus eGPU
external monitor, single screen turned on
There's a solution...
Go to nvidia control panel, 3D settings, Settings for software (may look differ, i'm translating from Russian)
Go to vivaldi://flags/ , find and turn on Vulcan as the graphics backend
Result: No dropped frames at active window, at cinema mode, at mini-player, at full-screen, at Vivaldi Tab|Tab (arrange?) mode and at pucture-in-picture mode. Single dropped frames when i'm at another Tab... but who cares?

P.S. looks like this breaks video at vkontakte, pikabu and mb some others.
P.P.S Set Choose ANGLE graphics backend to OpenGL without turning on Vulcan seems to fix the problem for me.
@oldhickory30 Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been having this problem for years (on Windows, so it's not only a long-term issue, it's also cross-platform!), tried uninstalling extensions, reinstalling the whole browser, playing with settings, and today I found this topic and your solution turned out to be right.
So why does the team not fix this bug after so long? Why does laptop touch-scrolling have to wait until you stop the movement to figure out you're not using gestures and start the actual scrolling? This is a huge issue - to the extent of making the whole point of using Vivaldi over Opera defunct.
