Installing Vivaldi

Vivaldi is available from the manjaro repo.

To install the base Vivaldi you can use the command:

user $ pamac install vivaldi COPY TO CLIPBOARD

If you want to view DRM protected video content you will also need the proprietary widevine codec. This can be installed with

user $ pamac build vivaldi-widevine COPY TO CLIPBOARD

If you also have Google Chrome package installed you can use the widevine plugin bundled with Chrome instead

You can install the package vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs with the command

user $ pamac install vivaldi-ffmpeg-codecs COPY TO CLIPBOARD
