Appeal for co-maintainers: I'd be very interested if anybody else out there was willing to take this on. Long term I have an eye on moving it to [community], but there are a number of road blocks to overcome before that can happen: some upstream and some local to this packaging. The PKGBUILD needs a bit of work, and even without trying to clean it up maintaining Chromium builds of any kind is quite a bit of work. I adopted this with the aim of shepherding it until I feel comfortable pulling it into [community], but until then I would love if one or more co-maintainers would jump on here.

Feel free to send patches in comments, via email, or as PRs to this repository.

I have been testing the way to keep the main sources of this package in disk and avoid to download all Chromium source everytime... Chromium is a huge project! So finally I have used the VCS package guidelines in Archwiki and I used to pull the main projects behind Brave:

  • brave-browser
  • chromium
  • depot_tools
  • brave-core
  • adblock-rust

So, now these projects are stored in your repo dir to be used in the future. Keep that in mind because it's more than 23 GB:

figue /DATA2/packages/figue/brave-aur $ du -hcs chromium brave-browser brave-core adblock-rust depot_tools
22G     chromium
20M     brave-browser
645M    brave-core
30M     adblock-rust
111M    depot_tools
23G     total

@sTiKyt re your orphan request, please see pinned comments.

@MarsSeed PKGBUILD in that repo uses a precompiled binary.

Hi @alerque,

You could check Manjaro's Brave build repo, or reach out to its maintainer, Stefano Capitani on GitLab, or directly by email (stefano AT

Given its popularity maybe is it a good idea to move this package to [community]? Or flag it as Orphan?

can please update pkgbuild my friend ? there's chaotic aur that will build automatically the package

@doctorzeus Becuase it is a train-load of work to do, nobody else is contributing, and I've been traveling and my laptop is not fast enough to even tinker with this build. Feel free to send PRs or patches that clean this up to Arch packaging guidelines. I'd be happy to accept them and it would accelerate it getting into [community].

doctorzeus commented on 2021-12-05 09:35 (UTC)

Seriously how is this not in the official repos yet?

korimitsu commented on 2021-11-23 10:59 (UTC)

Another issue: icon is missing.

@alerque decide yourself, what you want to be included.

I have updated my PKGBUILD to v1.30.86. I only tested COMPONENT=4, compiles with makepkg.conf CFLAGS/XX, LTO + PGO. But there a bad CFLAGS (from standard makepkg.conf) flags left, that need to be filtered.

alerque commented on 2021-09-11 15:15 (UTC)

@monarc99 You've clearly done a bit more fiddling with the assorted patches an options that are out there. I'm not sure all of your changes are generally applicable (not saying they aren't, I haven't had time to dig into each), but if there is anything you think should be put in the AUR here do feel free to open pull requests.
