On Arch you can use a brave-flags.conf file to put extra commandline options for launching the browser. Is there anything like this for Fedora? Other than editing the .desktop file for the applications in my KDE Applications Menu

Version 1.42.88 Chromium: 104.0.5112.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I’m using the official brave repo.

Many Thanks

I don’t know if there is an ‘official’ or ‘right’ way of doing this, but if I were going to do it myself, I’d probably do as you suggest – create a duplicate .desktop file with the different options.

Or, create a small shell script or shell alias to do the same and launch with different options from the terminal.

That said, keep in mind that an existing, already-running instance might prevent things from working the way you expect. Depends on what options you use, try things out and see what happens. You can always look at brave://version to see what options were ‘read’ by the running instance. And you can use things like --user-data-dir if needed to launch entirely independent instances if the former method is problematic for your purposes.

On the other hand if you don’t have an instance already running it shouldn’t be a problem.
