How to install Vivaldi Browser on a Chromebook


Today we are looking at how to install Vivaldi on a Chromebook.

As seen in the video below, we firstly enable Linux Apps on our system, then we download the Vivaldi installation package from the website and move the package from our Download folder to our Linux Apps folder.  After that, we change the name of the package to vivaldi.deb (for in case the name of the package change, the commands will still be the same,  and working) and then we install it on our system with the three commands below.  Enjoy!

If you want to update your application in the future, open a terminal session (like you did to install Vivaldi), and copy/paste this command into it, sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

Please take note that with the release of Chrome OS 90,  the location of Linux Apps has been changed in the Chromebook’s settings.  Have a look at this tutorial, to see how to turn on Linux apps and then continue with the installation tutorial.
