Not sure what to say. Here's my ~/.config/brave-nightly-flags.conf:

--disable-gpu-vsync --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-gpu-rasterization --enable-zero-copy

And here's what I get when I run brave-nightly script:

exec /opt/ --disable-gpu-vsync --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-gpu-rasterization --enable-zero-copy --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds

@gregbunk unfortunately I tried many formats but they did not work no matter how I formatted them. only a single flag works even when they are space separated.

Thanks for the reply I'm putting each flag on a single line maybe that's why.

Thanks for your work on this, @heelowoorl. I think this works as-is, with the flags on a single line. For example, my flags are:

--disable-gpu-vsync --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-gpu-rasterization --enable-zero-copy

And when I run this command:

brave-nightly foo

It expands to:

exec /opt/ --disable-gpu-vsync --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder --ignore-gpu-blocklist --enable-gpu-rasterization --enable-zero-copy --disable-gpu-driver-bug-workarounds foo

Is that not what we want?

@gregbunk I noticed that the script only loads the flags if it is 1 flag and only 1 flag from ~/.config/brave-nightly-flags.conf otherwise it will just not load any.

I tried to debug the issue and I got it fixed by looking at the brave-bin package here on aur and moving the flag argument placement like so

exec "/opt/" "$@" $USER_FLAGS $BRAVE_FLAGS $FLAG

To test the issue you can use these two below flags if you put them inside ~/.config/brave-nightly-flags.conf and observe that they don't apply. but if you only put --incognito it will work and by the change above both worked flawlessly

Thanks. I'm using the github API to pull the actual builds as they occur.

hey @gregbunk. please take a look at - it's an overview of Brave versions, including links to individual endpoints returning a version for a given platform/architecture, that can be used in automation - e.g. and

I have added experimental aarch64 support. I have no way to test this, so I'm flying blind. If someone can try and let me know that would be great.

Please note that aarch64 Brave builds are VERY spotty right now. They seem to not be available a lot of the time.

You can use something like this to incorporate aarch64:

_arch=`uname -m|sed s/x86_/amd/\;s/arch/rm/`
_pkgver=`curl -s|grep browser_download_url|grep nightly-.*-linux-$_arch|head -1|cut -d- -f5`
sha256sums=(`curl -Ls $_link.sha256|cut -b-64`)
    echo $_pkgver

Was able to get this working on Asahi linux. Not sure if this warrants a separate package or not. Would be great if support for arm linux could be included here.
