The following issue is resolved – For those who wish to resolve this issue in Linux Mint, simply install seahorse by entering the following command in the command line:
sudo apt install seahorse
After installing the application, you may launch it from the menu and follow the directions suggested by the Brave Help Center listed below.
When launching Brave desktop browser, I am prompted to enter the keyring password (which for Linux is the user password.) This is known problem and there hasn’t been a real solution to the issue that I can find. However, in the Brave Help Center, there is a posting concerning this issue. It states:
- Open the
Passwords and Keysapp
- Ensure that the icon is unlocked (click
Unlockand enter your password to unlock)
- Check to see if
Brave Safe Storageis there — if not, please click the
+button to add it.
The problem is the very first step - where do I find the “Passwords and Keys” app? I cannot find it after searching the Menu items and there is no app that I can find for Linux.
I am using Linux Mint 21.1 and Brave version 1.47.171. This issue is not critical, but really annoying.
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide!
