Using Vivaldi headless for screenshots -

  • Vivaldi 2.8.1664.40 (Stable channel) (32-bit)

    Profile Path /root/.config/vivaldi/Default

    YES it's running as root with no sandbox

    I'm trying (amongst other options) to use vivaldi headless to capture a bunch of screenshots of Twitter bios.

    If I try it without the user data directory specified, like so:

    vivaldi-stable --headless  --no-sandbox --disable-gpu  --window-size=1200,900 --screenshot

    then I get this:screenshot.png image url)

    If i try it with the user data directory specified, thus:

    vivaldi-stable --user-data-dir=/root/.config/vivaldi/ --headless  --no-sandbox --disable-gpu  --window-size=1200,900 --screenshot

    (in the hope that it will pick up my login), I just get this:


    Even more confusing to me is that when I'm operating Vivaldi manually on twitter, the bio view I get is this (which is ideal because the bio can be clipped out as a neat square(ish))


    Anyone got a clue wtf is going on? Anything I can do?
