Before reporting the package as out of date, please note that the newer GitHub release you're looking at belongs to the "Release Channel" and isn't marked as prerelease.

I have a cron running that's checking every 30 minutes if there's a new release and sends me an email if so. If you see the release was tagged in the last couple of hours please give it some time before flagging. Thanks.

NOTE: Also please take into account a stable version may be "released" but not marked as ready for a long time.

To disable the message telling "that you're using an unsupported command-line flag --no-sandbox" you must enable user namespaces with sysctl:

sudo sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1

To make it persist after reboot:

echo kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf

brave browser can't be set as default browser by clicking on set default button.

I made a work around solution for it (I use KDE plasma):

1- create an empty html file (file.html)

2- Right click -> Open with -> Other Application... -> chose brave & tick remember application -> Ok

I just noticed I missed your last message arcomus. This package does not build Brave. This just extracts and uses the official binary. Please make sure you're trying to install brave-bin and not some other package and if it's the case please post the makepkg output.

Thanks for the report. Soon check.

Thanks for the report JantarMantar! Fixed.

There is a bug in shell script. One can't open a local file that has spaces in its name. To fix this, the last line must have double quotes around $@. That is, it should be:

/usr/lib/brave-bin/brave "$@" $SANDBOX_FLAG $PEPPER_FLASH_FLAG $USER_FLAGS || true

Hello Brave builder,

I have a question. Yesterday i tried to install brave on a arcolinux i3 xfce system. I stopped the install after 3 < hours. It also put 30 gig of data on my disk.

At the end not installed and it took a long time to delete brave components.

Strange situation for me.

I just installed the package and it works perfect. Very grateful for your work

@mixedcase, ops, sorry... did not see that orange "pre-release" tag

Deleting the comment...

mixedCase commented on 2019-09-10 15:03

@spsf64 That one is marked as prerelease.

Noting here in case anybody wonders: Package was just rolled back because a GitHub release was incorrectly marked as stable for some period of time by the Brave team, forcing an epoch increase.
