Brave browser unsupported command line flag issue

Noticed this hasn’t been addressed before and I am curious should I run into this situation what the solution entails. I’ve heard others have same issues, so I figured I’d ask.

Verbatim, at the top of the latest Brave browser I see the following message. "You are using unsupported command-line flag:-no sandbox.

Any thoughts on this situation?

Oh I’ve been dealing with this same stuff lately, in various “non-systemd” distros. But anyway, here’s something that might help…

Not sure WHY username spaces should be enabled in kernel, to me that’s possible security risk. (I even had security alerts or warnings in Yaourt when trying to build it) I tried installing Brave in Artix linux, MX Linux, Void Linux, and few others… and they all wouldn’t work unless that was enabled.

There’s still one distro where I get the “trace/breakpoint trap” message in terminal trying to run it from terminal.

I also tried… “cd” to get into the /Brave folder and noticed the “brave-bin.sh” script there and tried running it as root or sudo… and it won’t run get error…

Syntax error: "(" unexpected (expecting "then")

So tried “dos2unix” on brave-bin.sh script, still same error. Tried sed -i 's/\r$//' brave-bin.sh and still didn’t work. Lol.

Then even had bunches of other errors already as well… Dunno what’s going on with Brave but something not right.
