I tried the normal installation steps from brave’s website.
I got stuck when I tried to use curl command.
After I tried this command :
I got this error message.
curl: (7) Failed to receive SOCKS4 connect request ack.
I think it is because I use a proxy VPN V2RAY client on my linux machine.
Because a few days ago I could not git clone from github, and after I changed the settings using this:
git config --global http.proxy 'socks5:127.0.0.1:10808'
github became function again.
so the question is, how do I make curl work use socks 5 instead of 4?
I changed my curl command a bit to get it to work.
sudo curl --proxy 127.0.0.1:10809 -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg
I pointed curl to my HTTP proxy. now the command works.
Also, this command also works.
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list
after that if I key in
ls /usr/share/keyrings/ I will see the
brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg inside the folder.
But now if I run sudo apt update , it always failed to get brave from the repo…

nevermind I just used snap to install it and it works fine now.
