I just installed 19.1 Cinnamon and want to install Brave Browser. Went to their site and copied and pasted instructionsin terminal. Did not seem to finish. Last 2 lines said something about triggers. I did updates and tried again in terminal and this is what was said: ~$ sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl
[sudo] password for mike:
Sorry, try again.

But no Brave Browser.

Have you tried getting it from the repository?

the Brave browser is *not* available in the Software Repository,
& thus you do need to add it in .. ..

This is what I did before:


Debian 9+, Ubuntu 14.04+ and Mint 17+

If you get gnutls_handshake() errors after adding the Brave repository on Debian 9, you may need to uninstall old conflicting packages.

sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.br ... e-core.asc | sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add -

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

Hi sdcougar,

Uninstall everything that you have done thus far"

Code: Select all

sudo apt purge brave-browser*
Then, open "update manager", click the "edit" tab...then click "Other Software" tab...Then click on, in order to highlight the entry marked "brave", and click the remove button:

From there, use the scripts i have only slightly modified from the Official version from the Official website in order to install brave...do each one, one at a time and only then reboot system when completed...hopefully you will then have Brave as a working, viable browser...Report back when done with a yay or nay...DAMIEN

Ps...I couldnt allow myself to just standby and watch your slow torture any longer...I will be extremely rare to be heard from here from now on in the forums and will ONLY choose to answer posts that interest me and where i think I will be able to have any possible, positive impact in future...Im not perfect and realise this as such, but have always strived to do the best that i am capable thereof.

Code: Select all

curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key add -

Code: Select all

UBUNTU_CODENAME=$( (grep DISTRIB_CODENAME /etc/upstream-release/lsb-release || grep DISTRIB_CODENAME /etc/lsb-release) 2>/dev/null | cut -d'=' -f2 )

Code: Select all

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ bionic main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-bionic.list

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

Code: Select all

sudo apt install brave-browser brave-keyring

YEAHHHH...Im very happy to have been of some small help to you here on the forums...and your appreciation is highly valued to me...DAMIEN

EDIT...Just as an afterthought here, maybe there is someone of more influence and/or authority than i possess...i HAVE tried telling the "powers that be" at Brave, the problems that their installation scripts for Linux Mint 19.xx "bionic" series as well as Peppermint 9 and 10 "bionic" do not work well for most users and DID submit my so-called "fix" for this which has apparently worked 100% thus far, to NO avail, NO response, over many months of trying...Just maybe, someone much better than I might get a better response from them, thus helping our users here, to get proper, workable, installation instructions, from their Official Installation Website...Ive done the best i could do, and am no longer willing to waste my time, effort, my old, arthritic, typing fingers any longer in the pursuit of this endeavour.

Had to say Thank You for posting your solution Damien1307, I know it's been a while since you posted the solution here but this saved me a bunch of head scratching !

Just to add a note for others that search this up.

The instructions on the brave website could really do with having a couple of numbers next to them as it is a 5 step process (in the terminal). Sure they have white space, but 'newbies' (like me) WILL copy/paste ALL of it into the terminal and wonder what went wrong ;)

So break the steps down into 5 bits, as DAMIEN1307 showed above, answer each individual prompt for that before moving onto the next copy/paste line, and you should be good.

This was successfully installed on a 64 bit system. I am now overseas on an IBM T-60 with fresh install of Mint 19.2 xfc 32 bit. will it work on this?

I doubt it as i do not believe that Brave Browser has a 32 bit version...Use this one instead...DAMIEN
