Share settings beta and snapshot



  • Hi there... I have both the beta and the snapshot running on my computer. (Linux) Is there a way to share the settings, apps and plugins? Instead of maintaining them separately?



  • ah, it's as easy as this to sync it up….

    cp -r ~/.config/vivaldi/* ~/.config/vivaldi-snapshot/
    
    ```Reboot the browser. Potentially a symlink would probably work. Just keeping them separate so I can backup and revert in case some non compatible changes come in on a snapshot.

    Were it me, I would simply copy the preferred profile's "User Data" folder from the preferred profile to the other. If this caused a glitch (unlikely), I would leave the folders in place, uninstall the bugged version and reinstall it. Total time consumed: about two minutes.
