I have been trying to get Vivaldi to install on my Raspberry Pi, (it worked for a while however I had to reinstall Raspbian because I like to tinker) and when I double click nothing happens. I've tried opening it with Run Software, Autorun Prompt and more. Any ideas?

I use these commands

cd Downloads/
wget https://downloads.vivaldi.com/stable/vivaldi-stable_1.13.1008.34-1_armhf.deb
sudo apt install vivaldi-stable_1.13.1008.34-1_armhf.deb

Note: I installed Raspbian Lite with the MATE Desktop.

You can download the latest Vivaldi 32bit ARM DEB from https://vivaldi.com/download/ but recent installations add vivaldi to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ so you should be notified of updates.

You can install Vivaldi from the repository with apt install vivaldi-stable

If you want to install the latest from deb use dpkg -i

The version you seem to be trying to install is rather old.

On my system I have, although there is a (very recent) later version.

apt-cache policy vivaldi-stable
vivaldi-stable:
  Installed: 2.4.1488.40-1
  Candidate: 2.4.1488.40-1
  Version table:
 *** 2.4.1488.40-1 100

This was installed from vivaldi-stable_2.4.1488.40-1_armhf.deb


I downloaded and installed the latest with:-

cd Downloads/
wget https://downloads.vivaldi.com/stable/vivaldi-stable_2.5.1525.41-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i vivaldi-stable_2.5.1525.41-1_armhf.deb

  • I am a complete noob at using the terminal. What command should I use to install it? I have downloaded the newer version.

  • sudo dpkg -i /path/to/vivaldi-stable_2.5.1525.41-1_armhf.deb

  • this saves me a question, I was wondering if the new vivaldi .deb package was still compatible, because I got the old package pointed to by the blog, not the "latest linux arm" build. I had to do sudo --fix-broken install -y to get the old one to work

Well... I found a WiringPi .deb update (up to 2.52 ONLY for RPi4B) on the WiringPi source page, with a download link. Brought it into a temp folder adjacent to NOOBS.

The .deb file knew the way... was I just lucky?

$ cd \xxxx (where I dropped the .deb file)

$ sudo dpkg -i wiringpi-xxxxxx.deb

$ gpio -v

( bottom line: it worked fine)
