As an update on the update: I still can't get the scripts to use python2 in all cases, but I have made progress (i.e. modifying the shebangs works in most of the cases, but some scripts seem to be explicitly called with python, and I can't find where. Virtualenv seems to not work in that case either.)

I'm going to disown the package, in case anyone else wants to try fixing this up. I uploaded my modifications to the repository (https://github.com/timschumi/aur-packages/tree/brave-git-next-gen), feel free to base whatever you are trying on this. Please note that since I didn't manage to make it fully build, the packaging steps aren't correct.

As a side note: You are now building Chromium with Brave's patches (in case anyone gets this to work). That means hours of build time (felt like 10h on my 2x2,7 GHz CPU) and lots of used disk space (about 70 GB (yes, Gigabytes) in my tests (~20 GB are downloaded), but maybe I missed something that can be omitted to further reduce that).

I don't even know if a -git package for Brave is viable anymore.

@tuckerboniface The new location alone won't help much (is there even a reason to use it, as the old repository is still being updated?). Due to changes in Brave's build system for the next-gen version, the PKGBUILD is massively broken by now. I took a look at it and tried to fix a few things, but unfortunately, the Chromium scripts assume that python2 is installed as "python", which isn't the case on Arch. If anyone with enough nodeJS knowledge and enough time on their hands is able to come up with a solution to make nodeJS modify the shebang lines between cloning depot_tools and running them, I'll happily switch this to the next-gen version.

Please use the new location https://github.com/brave/brave-browser

pkgver is broken. Since the repo doesn't provide proper rel tags you should just use

printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

current result is 'r9490.971344519'

I get: Error installing brave-git : invalid version string: 0.22.0.^3.0.18419.

Using yay, manjaro.

There needs to be two small changes to the PKGBUILD to get this to compile:

Line 51, change to

cp -a --reflink=auto brave-linux-x64 "$pkgdir/usr/lib/$pkgname"

Line 186, change to

install -Dm0644 res/nightly/app.png "$pkgdir"/usr/share/pixmaps/brave.png

@asynec Should be fixed now, let me know if not!

This package is currently creating duplicate icons inside of Dash to Dock on Gnome. I believe it is an error similar to what Chromium used to experience:

@gutigen, a VCS package is *never* out-of-date. It may need adjustments sometimesm but that's is not the case today. Please don't set gratitous out-of-date flags to VCS packages and I don't mean just this one.

I encourage you to read the wiki:

This package was renamed, please use <https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/brave-git/>.
