Vivaldi browser disappears

Post by RNella8 »

Hello All,
I'm new to Linux Mint so bear with me, please.

I'm running Mint from a USB stick on my laptop (A Lenovo Windows 10 laptop).
Vivaldi browser runs well; but it keeps disappearing every time the laptop is cold booted. I have re-installed Vivaldi already three times.
Is there a way to install Vivaldi and keep it there?

I assume you just run Mint as a live session therefor the install is not persistent. If you were to install Mint on the disk that would not happen obviously.

Personally I have no experience with persistent USB installs but that is what you should do if you want to see your changes to the OS after a reboot.

I see.
I'll have to make some room for another partition and install Mint on the hard-drive.

Thank you
