For the people not willing to download 500MB of chromium source to build this package:

You can install it from my repo:

Note: When the version here in AUR updates you should keep in mind it can take up to 30 minutes until its available in my repo.

If you are using an AUR helper you must make sure you have enough space where the helper wants to build. If your helper uses /tmp or something you are very likely to run out of "diskspace" while building this package.

If you're getting same build error as here, try to rollback on previous gn version (in my case it was 0.1819.e327ffdc-1 -> 0.1731.5ed3c9cc-1).

I am also getting a build error slightly different to the other recent errors.

Defining target //base/util/values:unittests(//build/toolchain/linux:clang_x64) Loading //ppapi/lib/gl/gles2/ (referenced from //ppapi/examples/gles2/

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

I had an error at build too. Had to increase the size of my /tmp directory (using Trizen to do the install).

Temporarily increasing it by running the below command fixed it for me:

sudo mount -o remount,size=10G,noatime /tmp

Can't build it anymore:

@Musikolo Ah, I get it now. Thanks, those are valid points.

Hi @SeerLite,

I personally find at least the following 2 benefits in using packages:

  • Package is integrated with pacman, so all files are much better managed this way
  • Package gets installed once, and all users can enjoy the same software.

I hope it helps!

@BlackIkeEagle I see. Thanks, I didn't know about the environment variable.

Is there any advantage in using a package (like this one) as opposed to using Vivaldi's built-in solution?

BlackIkeEagle commented on 2020-04-26 11:40

@SeerLite if no usefull ffmpeg package is found that is indeed what happens

If you really don't want that you can disable this behaviour by adding


in your environment to disable auto downloading of ffmpeg codecs

Latest Vivaldi versions install their ffmpeg codecs in ~/.local/lib/vivaldi/media-codecs-x.x.x.x/ on their second restart, or that's what I understood. Can anyone confirm?
