How do I update Vivaldi ?



  • I have Vivaldi for Linux, version, 1.5.658.44 (Stable channel) (64-bit).
    I don't see any way to install updates; is it done automatically with this
    version ?



  • You are using the latest version. There haven't been any updates to the stable channel since the 1.5 release.



  • Well, that's good to know, but it doesn't answer the question of how do you update Vivaldi when there is an update available.
    I don't see any place on the browser to check for new updates; could it
    be that it is now done automatically ?



  • If your initial installation of V went correctly, your distro's repos as used by sudo apt-get update / Update Manager / whatever is the equivalent in your distro, would/should have had the V repos added. For instance, in my Maui2:

  • Thank you for the reply, but I have no idea what that means.
    I am using Linux Mint 18.0 Xfce, and when I bring up software sources,
    it just shows Vivaldi as an additional repository. There is no display as in
    your reply.

    Again, if Vivaldi updates are not done automatically, how can I check to see if it needs updating ?



  • As Steffie pointed out, you have the latest version.

    When a new version is available your Update Manager will inform you.

    If you prefer the terminal, each time you run sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade, you'll see whatever newer software is available.

    If you've installed vivaldi-stable properly, when you run
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/vivaldi.list,
    you should see:
    deb http://repo.vivaldi.com/stable/deb/ stable main

    Monitoring this forum is a very good way, as well!



  • Further to the other help offered you since i posted, here's Mint 18 Xfce's Update Manager & Software Sources, showing you that V is indeed in the sources, & accordingly Update Manager has detected that my Tower's VM [which i'd not launched for quite a long time] is not up to date, but will be so once i accept these changes. This should be also how yours behaves. Mint 18 Xfce is my Lappy's OS, & it behaves exactly as i've described, & as my Tower's VM is doing now per this pic.

  • Thanks, I get it now. I didn't know it would be listed in the mint updates
    when a new update becomes available.

    Again, thank you very much.



  • @jim217 -- Cool, you're welcome, glad it helped.
