Vivaldi don't start



  • Hi guys, Im new to vivaldi so hope this is not a FAQ. Ive just installed vivaldi-stable_1.2.490.43-1_amd64.deb in a debian machine. When I try to run vivaldi from the command line nothing happens. it seems the program enter an endless loop. I run it as root Any idea? Thank you in advance.

    Please explain me: You run a window manager as root user? Why?

    In a root shell check if some Vivaldi processes are running:
    ps aux | grep vivaldi
    Kill these processes (run the following multiples times):
    killall vivaldi-bin

    Start Vivaldi as a regular user in you window manager is running.

    Does not start?
    find ~ -name "Last Tabs" -delete
    find ~ -name "Last Session" -delete



  • Sorry but none of your suggestion works.
    I dont like to run my machine as a normal user. Its about 20 years I use linux as root and nothing happened. Lucky? maybe but this is the way I want to use linux

    @paparucino:

    …. run vivaldi from the command line nothing happens

    do you issue the absolute path? "/user/bin/vivaldi-stable & "

    With such knowledge you are knowing what you do.

    Then look into your syslog, inspect errors and tell us about Vivaldi related messages.

    I cant start Vivaldi (and not even Chromium) as root on my Debian 8; it results in a protection fault, may be sandbox related.
