KDE Pinned no longer working



  • Using Vivaldi Snapshot on KDE I have pinned the Vivaldi browser to task bar.
    With the latest update of Vivaldi this no longer works.
    I can pin Vivaldi, but when closing the application I cannot start it again from the pinned icon.
    The pinned icon now points to vivaldi-bin and it opens the KDE application starter dialog to choose which application it should open (since it cannot find vivaldi-bin).
    After closing I can only start Vivaldi from the menu, and I have to delete the pinned icon, because the newly started Vivaldi does not use it and is no longer pinned.

    OpenSUSE Leap 42.2
    KDE 4.8/4.9
    Vivaldi Snapshot
    Vivaldi 1.14.1030.3 (Official Build) snapshot (64-bit)
    Revision 7f988e3c597627880ce662c60d20a47dd3e354c0-



  • Hi, do you mean Kmenu > Internet > Vivaldi > RMB > send to taskbar with "Pinned"?
    You can get exact KDE version with "inxi -F" , inxi is not installed per default but nice.
    No problems here on:

    Opensuse Leap 42.3 x86_64
    CPU Intel T4200 4 GB
    GPU Intel GN 965
    xf86-video-intel 2.99.917-6.1
    KDE Plasma 5.8.7
    Vivaldi latest snapshot

    Cheers, mib



  • I am using the KDE Icon-only Task bar. Right click on the already open application, choose Pin.
    Kmenu > Internet > Vivaldi > RMB > Pin to Task Manager
    This does the same. When I click on it to open Vivaldi, it does not place itself on the previous pinned icon, but creates a new.

    Also:
    Closing Vivaldi. Clicking on the pinned Vivaldi icon on task bar (vivaldi-bin it says).
    It does not open my stored session, but a brand new vivaldi configuration
    ~/.config/vivaldi
    While starting the application from the menu uses ~/.config/vivaldi-snapshot
