Extended version for Arch Linux

After every update, you have to redo the steps above. To do this automatically, you can install a pacman hook (vivaldi-patch.hook) in arch. The install does this automatically. You can run it with or without a destination directory:



./ /path/to/install

Default is /opt/vivaldi-patch

You can’t perform that action at this time.
