(How to) Install LastPass for Vivaldi



  • With some effort today, I managed to get LastPass working with Vivaldi, and I thought I'd share how to get it set up for all of you. This may work on OS X or Windows, but definitely works on Linux. Start by getting Google Chrome and installing the Give Me CRX plugin found at the chrome extensions store. Then, search in the extensions store, LastPass, and click on it. Do not click add to Chrome. Right click on the header, and select "Get CRX of this extension". Download the CRX, and rename it something like lastpass.zip. Then, I recommend running this series of commands to avoid messing up your downloads folder. [code] mkdir ~/Downloads/lastpass mv lastpass.zip lastpass/lastpass.zip unzip lastpass.zip cd lastpass [/code] Once you've run that, your LastPass folder will be filled with a bunch of files, you only need to delete one. Run: [code] rm -r _metadata [/code] LastPass is now ready to install in Vivaldi. Open the following link in Vivaldi: vivaldi://chrome/extensions In the upper right corner, check developer mode. Then select Load unpacked extension, and choose your LastPass folder. It will open up a log in screen. Voila, LastPass will autofill, generate, and save passwords with Vivaldi.

    For _metadata files, I have seen people report success when deleting the underscore at the beginning of the file title.

    Vivaldi will not install extensions with a leading underscore file in them, as these are reserved for "system."



  • Might be able to go that way, but _locales is definitely not a problem with vivaldi.

    Interesting. I only know what the error window said when trying to install extensions with _metadata in them.

    It's possible the text in the window was not true.



  • Thanks Erik,
    worked for me in Windows. I got an error when I installed it ('tabs' is only allowed for packaged apps, but this is a extension), but it works nevertheless.
    I'm wondering if I can install the rest of my essential plugins like this.



  • Hi everyone,
    Install was OK :lol: but how can we use the extension ? There is no icon, nothing to start with :woohoo:
    Thanks

    Such settings and options as are available will be found at vivaldi://extensions



  • didn't work in OSX, "get CRX" is not an option when you right-click.



  • I am technically feeble– I used the crx tool and the command to create a folder and then I was stuck because copy/paste in terminal was not working for me. . I manually moved my file named lastpass.zip to the last pass folder and unzipped it with archive manager. I then manually cut the entire metadata folder and save it elsewhere to be sure I deleted the correct item (which it was). I installed it as suggested via developer status in extensions. I went through the options and logged in. I restarted vivaldi and seem to have a completely bug free install accessible with a right mouse click. Many Thanks to ErikP and Ayespy.



  • Following the instructions, I just installed lastpass on Windows 8.1 64 bit without issue. It took an extra restart to get the right click context menu to come up, but my auto-login sites worked perfectly the first time. Thank you so much!!



  • I already installed LastPass before I found this thread and my way was much easier than this IMHO. I just launched the Google Web Store for Extensions and installed LastPass from there.

    Am I missing out on doing it my way rather than following the steps here?

    Update - my way does not work for snapshot 1.0.201.2-1 but does for stable 1.0.162.9!

    I did the same but I have to re-enable Lastpass in chrome://extensions every time I launch Vivaldi browser so that's kinda annoying… I haven't tried the trick from this thread (yet) though.
