The fact that the DNS resolution doesn’t work suggests that there is a problem with your DNS provider. Some of them incorrectly block Brave downloads because of some parental controls and the fact that Brave has a Tor mode that can be used to circumvent these controls.
@fmarier Thank you… I tried this, and it gives the same error in my phone also. Since my phone is rooted (I don’t want to too, as it seems not secure), I cannot change the DNS config. There are some apps recommended to do the same (like, DNSChanger), however I’m not sure if I should use them - as they seem to use a VPN, if the phone is un-rooted.
ok… I just tried the link in brave browser itself (that I previously installed using ‘snap’) & it downloaded the 3.2kb key file. What should I do now? Can I save this file as /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg, and then run only this part ‘sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add -’ of the original command. Will it work?
Also, I just realised that even if this works, it will still install brave in the default path (/snap/bin/brave, in this case). So, how can I install it in a custom path? Any ideas?
If you install using the official Brave repository, then it will end up in /opt/brave.com/. We don’t support installing Brave into a custom directory. If you want to do that, I think you’ll need to build from source, but I haven’t tested that myself.
We are now building the snap ourselves (it used to be maintained by the community) but it’s not quite working as well as the regular packages, so the packages in the Brave repository are our recommended option at the moment for Linux. Both should work though.
Cool… got it. I’ll try to get it from the Brave repository itself, somehow. By the way, I was just going through articles on Brave. It seems to be the best in speed of all existing browsers & it’s business model sounds more intriguing (not sure if it’ll be good for users in the long run or not). Anyway, All the best! It’s performance seems definitely very good.
So, anyone can contribute to the brave’s open-source development, or is there some procedure of application?
