Gnome 3.26 Can't Launch Vivaldi Snapshot

  • Hello I need help with an issue with Vivaldi snapshot version 1.14.1077.3-1 and when ever I add the browser to the dock it won't launch. Currently on Gnome shell version 3.26.2. It will launch from the overview menu but not from the favourites dock. I managed also to take the browser out of the /usr/share/applications folder to place it on the desktop, and it launched but gave a weird question, it asked me to "trust this application" .
    But regardless of that the stable version does launch from the favourites dock and this is verified in Ubuntu 17.10 and Manjaro 17. So I don't think it's distro related.
    Won't launch from terminal either, so I can't give you a readout of what is going on behind the scenes.

    Must be a GNOME 3.26 issue.

    Internally a fix was done, may be fixed in next public Snapshot.

    Update your Vivaldi, please.

    Works for me on Ubuntu 7.10 GNOME 3.26 with 1.14.1077.45 Stable and 1.15.1094.3 Snapshot.
    Try to remove and re-add the icon on panel. Or uninstall Vivaldi and install once more.
    That helped me with Ubuntu 16 some days ago.
