Before making your report, 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.

Also please take into account a stable version may be "released" on GitHub but not marked as ready (read, NOT PRELEASE) for a long time.

Another handy tool to check latest OFFICIALLY MARKED AS STABLE version of Brave is to run:

@mixedCase Yup; running it with --force-device-scale-factor=2 fixes the problem for now.

@mixedCase Thanks; I'll have a look at it. And thank you for maintaining the package.

@Parintachin I don't support Manjaro. Regardless, sounds like a Google-upstream problem, but I suggest looking at this to see if it helps you override whatever the browser's doing:

Manjaro KDE. This package, like the Chrome package that dropped a few days ago, does not play well with high-dpi screens when scaling is chosen. It looks like the scaling factor is applied twice - everything is huge.

thanks :D

@chandradeepdey Patch applied to latest revision. Cheers

@mixedCase This is perfect. Thanks.

@chandradeepdey I don't have a desktop to test icons. Does this patch work for you without breaking the regular shortcut?

chandradeepdey commented on 2021-05-12 09:02

When you install a web app, the following is added to $XDG_DATA_HOME/desktop-directories/

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Brave Browser Apps

Brave expects the icon to be named brave-desktop. This package puts it as brave, can this be changed?

@zerophase the --reflink option was used to speed up the packaging phase by doing a lightweight copy of the package contents to $pkgdir. It had no effect whatsoever on brave-bin performance. See cp(1) manual.

I have had no issues with brave lately, but I do not use it that much.
