How to install Brave on Linux using Chromium

Brave, the web browser’s creator, has changed its rendering engine from in-house to Chromium. Accordingly, all instructions on how to install Brave have been changed.

We will be showing you the best ways to install Brave Web Browser on Linux. Start by uninstalling the previous version. Follow the instructions below to install any software updates.

Ubuntu/Debian instructions for installation

Ubuntu Snap Store no longer has the latest version of Brave’s web browser. If you wish to download the most recent version of Brave you will have to do so through their customized software repository. To start the installation process, open up a terminal window and use the apt install command to set up the “apt-transport-https” and “curl” packages, which are required to set up the Brave repo.

You can follow the instructions for Brave on a Debian Linux computer. On certain releases of the operating systems, however, it may be necessary to replace the aptcommands by apt–getcommands.

sudoapt install apt transport-https curl

Following the installation of the “apt-transport-https” and “curl” packages, use the curl command to download the Brave repo’s release key. Don’t skip this step. Ubuntu will not recognize the key file if the repo isn’t created.

curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add -

Now it’s time to install the Brave software repositories to Ubuntu Linux. Use the echocommand to add the repo.

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

You must then run the updatecommand after adding the software repository. This will enable you to install Brave using the aptinstallcommand.

sudo apt update

Finaly, after the apt updatecommand completes, you can install Brave using the apt installcommand.

sudo apache install brave-browser

Arch Linux installation instructions

Brave, the web browser by Brave developers has not yet created an Arch Linux-specific package. Arch Linux users can still use Brave because Brave has been modified by Arch Linux AUR members.

Enable AUR support to begin the Brave installation under Arch Linux. You can do this by opening a terminal window, and using the Pacmancommand beneath to install the packages “git” (and “base devel”)

sudo pacman -S base-devel git

It is now time to set up the Trizen-AUR helper after Arch Linux has installed the “git”, “base devel” and “git”. Brave installation will become much more simple with this app, which automatically takes care of any dependencies. The commands below will allow you to download the Trizen App.

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/trizen.git
 
 cd trizen
 
 makepkg -sri

The trizen software is now installed on Arch Linux computers. You can then install Brave using the command below.

trizen -S brave-bin

Fedora installation instructions

Fedora Linux allows you to access the Brave Software repository and install the browser. You must first install “dnf_plugins-core”. Install “dnf_plugins-core” using the command.

sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core

Once you have installed the “dnf_plugins-core” package on Fedora Linux’s Fedora Linux system, go to the config managercommand and subscribe to Brave’s browser repositories. You should keep in mind, this repository can be used with Fedora and CentOS as well RHEL 8+.

sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/x86_64/

You have now successfully installed the Brave software repository on Fedora Linux. Now it’s time to import command and add the Brave key file.

sudo rpm --import https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc

When everything is done, Brave can be installed using the command.

sudo dnf install brave-browser

Installation instructions for OpenSUSE

OpenSUSE Linux is your operating system. Do you want to upgrade the Brave web browser? You can open a terminal by pressing Alt + T or Shift + on your keyboard. Next, you will need to follow the below-described steps.

Install Curl onto your OpenSUSE Linux Linux computer. It is essential to enable Brave’s software repository to work properly.

sudo-zypper install curl

Step 2 Once the Curl application is installed on OpenSUSE Linux, install the Brave software repository key by using the rpm –importcommand.

sudo rpm --import https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc

3rd step: Subscribe your OpenSUSE Linux machine to the Brave software repository by using the addrepocommand. Please note that the repo only works with OpenSUSE 15.0 or 15.1 and later. This repo will not work if the OS is older than 15.0.

sudo zypper addrepo https://brave-browser-rpm-release.s3.brave.com/x86_64/ brave-browser

4th Step: Install the Brave Web browser version on your OpenSUSE Linux system using the Zypper install command below.

sudo install brave-browser
