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

Anyone else having issues with Brave refusing to load web pages, while all other browsers and web services work fine?

simonorono commented on 2019-01-24 14:07

@Martian According to a Brave employee, this will be fixed soon.

Please have a look at this in regards to the UI bug:

Note that sh might not be bash. I use dash, and so will not work. You could just change the shebang to #!/usr/bin/env bash.

gnome-keyring is required for the password saving feature to work.

I also noticed password generation is not working. Is there a package that's needed to bring that feature over from Chrome to Chromium based browsers?

It shows that it is not set to the default browser, even when it actually is.

To fix default browser under chrome and to avoid showing the icon two times in the gnome dock, you can create a file ~/.local/share/applications/brave-browser.desktop with the following content:

(the most important line here is the StartupWMClass=brave-browser pointing to the correct window manager class name)

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Brave Browser
# Only KDE 4 seems to use GenericName, so we reuse the KDE strings.
# From Ubuntu's language-pack-kde-XX-base packages, version 9.04-20090413.
GenericName=Web Browser
# Not translated in KDE, from Epiphany 2.26.1-0ubuntu1.
# Gnome and KDE 3 uses Comment.
Comment=Access the Internet
Exec=/usr/bin/brave %U
Name[de_DE]=Brave Browser

[Desktop Action new-window]
Name=New Window
Name[de]=Neues Fenster

[Desktop Action new-private-window]
Name=New Incognito Window
Name[de]=Neues Inkognito-Fenster
Exec=/usr/bin/brave --incognito

And as suggested by @whezzel update ~/.config/mimeapps.list to use brave-browser.desktop for all browser related entries.

@dencrypt Regarding brave shield settings:

dencrypt commented on 2018-11-28 14:02

As @asynec I also have the problem with browser always telling me to set default browser. Tried the Suggestions from @whezzel but no avail unfortunately.

<s>Also the Brave Shield settings (in the address bar) has a UI that lacks any icons or text. It's just the sliders and the name of the page. Hard to set anything when I don't know what it is :) However great work anyway. These are just small complaints tbh and it works otherwise fine!</s>
This is an upstream bug.
