Shouldn't this be called "vivaldi-bin", considering the source is available at ?

please add desktop shortcuts for plank like chrome browser

> StartupWMClass=Vivaldi-stable
> Actions=new-window;new-private-window;
> [Desktop Action new-window]
> Name=New Window
> StartupWMClass=Vivaldi-stable
> Exec=/usr/bin/vivaldi-stable %U
> [Desktop Action new-private-window]
> Name=New Private Window
> StartupWMClass=Vivaldi-stable

Please add pepper-flash as an optional dependency. That would have avoided some unnecessary googling (and allowed me to install it --asdep).

Just letting you know it didn't show up after two separate reinstalls of Vivladi. I just tried updating Vivaldi right now (1.4.589.15-1), and it wouldn't update because of the symlink I created. Deleting the symlink fixed the issue.

@derklempner, the creation of the symlink is in there for a few versions now

# make /usr/bin/vivaldi available if its not there
if [[ ! -e "$pkgdir/usr/bin/vivaldi-stable" ]]; then
install -dm 755 "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
ln -sf /opt/vivaldi/vivaldi \

Couldn't start Vivaldi today as I received an error that it was unable to find the command "/usr/bin/vivaldi-stable %u", so I reinstalled the package. It didn't seem to solve the issue, so I removed the package, deleted the package files from pacman's cache, and reinstalled. The same error came back.

I fixed it by creating a symlink (ln -s /opt/vivaldi/vivaldi vivaldi-stable), but I thought you'd like to know the package isn't creating the symlink or copying the executable into /usr/bin.

@kikadf I'm sorry I made a mistake i linked with the name vivaldi instead of the name vivaldi-stable, will be fixed in a minute

After upgrade to vivaldi 1.4.589.11-1, can't start from menu. Seems in /usr/share/applications/vivaldi-stable.desktop the Exec part is wrong. vivaldi-stable not available, so s/vivaldi-stable/vivaldi/.
