Brave devs changed the naming convention of the files on their github... again. I have updated my script for the new naming convention and updated this package.

Seems that all of the new builds are missing /usr/lib/brave-beta-bin/libGLESv2.so and /usr/lib/brave-beta-bin/libEGL.so files. It disables acceleration and effectively webgl stops working. Doesn't seem like this is any expected?

This is resolved. I have a script that updates the PKGBUILD for me. The brave team changed the naming convention of their releases and my script did not catch it.

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/releases/download/v1.15.59/brave-v1.15.59-linux-x64.zip

I went to Brave's github page and there are no releases for brave-v1.15.59-linux-x64.zip there is one for brave-v1.15.59-linux-x64-symbols.zip so I edited the pkgbuild to grab the symbols file however I get a SHA512 validity check failure when it tries to build Brave again.

Sorry if this comment is not helpful this is legit my first time commenting on AUR and I am fairly new to AUR.

The latest release doesn't have LICENSE or LICENSES.chromium.html in the .zip and installing caused this error:

mv: cannot stat '/home/joe/.cache/yay/brave-beta-bin/pkg/brave-beta-bin/usr/lib/brave-beta-bin/LICENSE': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat '/home/joe/.cache/yay/brave-beta-bin/pkg/brave-beta-bin/usr/lib/brave-beta-bin/LICENSES.chromium.html': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().
    Aborting...
Error making: brave-beta-bin

This was resolved by removing line 48 from the PKGBUILD.

This package is set to conflict with itself and cannot be installed using pacaur:

% pacaur -S brave-beta-bin   
:: Package brave-beta-bin not found in repositories, trying AUR...
:: resolving dependencies...
:: unresolvable package conflicts detected
:: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies: brave-beta-bin)
%

I'm not sure what happened with the Github api, but it returned the wrong version number a few days ago. If you receive an error stating that a newer version is already installed, just uninstall then reinstall this package.

The dependencies have been updated

Anonymous comment on 2020-01-03 17:02

gconf is an obsolete configuration database system. Brave does not have this dependency.

Does this package really depend on libgnome-keyring? I see a lot of other packages has replaced this dependency with org.freedesktop.secrets now (which gnome-keyring provides). This is also true when comparing to the package 'brave' here in aur.
