Brave Install on MX Linux

#1

Hi, I tried installing brave on MX-Linux using the Ubuntu method, but using apt-get instead of apt. It did not work. How can I install Brave on MX Linux?

Have yout tried to download a brave-vX.XX.XX-linux-x64.zip from here, then extract it where ever you want, /opt or an Applications folder in HOME directory, then create a launcher (.desktop) with your text editor (save to Brave.desktop).

There is just 3 lines of exec to adapt.
Example:
Exec=/home/USER_NAME/Applications/brave-v0.59.18-linux-x64/brave %u
or
Exec=/opt/brave-v0.56.12-linux-x64/brave %u

This is how I do, without problems at all.

Thank you, this works!

I installed it using gdebi. To successfully launch Brave if it doesn’t start you can follow these steps:
