@scootz Before I started pulling the files from Chrome, I tried making the system libEGL/libGLES (either libglvnd or just straight up mesa) libraries work and couldn't. I could get Chrome to load them, but it would then fail. It looked to me like ANGLE is not a straight up replacement for libEGL/libGLES but rather does some translation that the Chrome engine in Brave depends on.

about the libEGL/GLES, would adding a package requirement for "libglvnd" work to avoid pulling in google chrome's version?

Thank you gregbunk, I appreciate it! Let's hope they include the missing files soon.

I've reported these missing files to Brave so the inclusion of these two files is hopefully very temporary. I've taken a look at building the ANGLE GL libraries (which is what these seem to be), but even that would be - hopefully - a very temporary fix.

Thank you for maintaining! Question: Are you sure we should pull libEGL.so and libGLESv2.so directly from Google Chrome? Is there any way to do it without trusting Google? Thank you!

PKGBuild broke, it should get changed. No need for sudo ln, just ln

Thank you! I forgot the bits about the Incognito Window, if you don't mind this patch would add this feature also: https://pastebin.com/MKVfsG9J

Thanks! Patch applied.

There are a couple issues with this package. 1) It doesn't have the actions "New Window" and "New Incognito Window" and 2) when clicking on the icon it generates a second icon to hold the windows (incorrect StartupWMClass). Would you mind applying this patch to fix those issues? https://pastebin.com/6V1jFWHJ
