Ubuntu 14.04 not loading Vivaldi



  • Hi all I am hoping that there is an easy solution as to why Vivaldi will not launch even though it was installed through the Software Centre and I have an icon in the Dash area. Version is vivaldi-stable_1.0.435.42-1_i386.deb Installed Pepper-free, and have updated system. Chrome seems to run fine, but is warning me that it will not receive updates because this Linux system is no longer supported. (Not sure why but presume because I have a 32 bit version). Thanks in advance



  • Start trying to launch vivaldi from a terminal to see any relevant error



  • The error message is

    [0415/202601:ERROR:nss_util.cc(98)] Failed to create /home/myname/.pki/nssdb directory.

    Does this give any clues?

    Thanks
    Also got next time

This means that running multiple instances would start multiple browser processes rather than opening a new window in the existing process. Aborting now to avoid profile corruption.



  • If that's a fresh install the faster way is to delete the profile folder

    /home/your-name/.config/vivaldi

    Otherwise you can try deleting any SingletonLock and SingletonSocket inside it.



  • The vivaldi folder was locked to root so change permissions and deleted it as suggested.
    When I ran vivaldi in terminal I got the following:
    [3773:3773:0416/112247:ERROR:logging.h(813)] Failed to call method: org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager.GetManagedObjects: object_path= /: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: Method "GetManagedObjects" with signature "" on interface "org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager" doesn't exist

    BUT Vivaldi has started up ! Went through the set up & closed it. Icon in Dash still doesn't start it up. Any more thoughts?

    Thanks



  • I was recommended in another thread to try a "snapshot" version. "Stable" isn't always the most stable. I've had no issues yet on 64 bit Ubuntu Trusty.
