GPG check failed on Fedora


While attempting to download and install release 0.18.14.x86_64 for Fedora 26, I received the following:

Package brave-0.18.14.x86_64.rpm is not signed
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction.
You can remove cached packages by executing ‘dnf clean packages’.
Error: GPG check FAILED

[Fedora 29] Public key for brave-browser is not installed

Hi @chadmccullough

Thanks for reporting! We are looking into this now.



Excellent! Thanks! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help with testing.


Hi @chadmccullough

Could you try again and let me know how it goes? rpm was re-uploaded and should work correctly this time.



The installer worked great this time. Unfortunately, after the install completed, Brave won’t launch. I am running Fedora 26 LXQT. I will try it with another desktop environment.


Okay, so it launched just fine using the Fedora Cinnamon desktop. The ‘Welcome to Brave’ page is really nice, by the way. Not sure why the browser won’t launch from the LXQT desktop?
