How To Install Vivaldi Browser on CentOS 8

Install Vivaldi Browser on CentOS 8

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install the Vivaldi Browser on CentOS 8. For those of you who didn’t know, Vivaldi is a feature-rich, next-generation web browser application based on the powerful and open-source Chromium project, from which the popular Google Chrome web browser is derived. The application is freely distributed and cross-platform, created by the former CEO of Opera Software, built using modern Web technologies like React, JavaScript, Node.js, and more.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Vivaldi Browser on a CentOS 8.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: CentOS 8.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Step 1. First, let’s start by ensuring your system is up-to-date.
