Linux Install without updating sources

Hi all
I’m using Linux more and more (Mint) and I’m not a complete noob, I can follow the instruction to update repos and install but it would be great if I could just install using
apt install brave-browser

I’m writing an ansilble script to configure a fresh environment how I want it, I’m sure it will be possible as it is now but would be much cleaner if I could the standard package manager config.

Surely this is not too hard?
Please don’t do a flatpak or snap, they seems to be buggy in my very limited experience.

I agree, and I would like to see this happen across more Linux distros.

For better or for worse, I think currently the best thing to do is to take your request to the distro itself. I’m not sure what the process is, but I imagine there must be one. And maybe they will take volunteers as well, many major distros have a distributed model where community members/users take responsibility for certain packages, and keeping them up to date, and so on.

sorry not sure if i got you
but the offecial linux installation for debain or any deriviative of debian (ubuntu/mint)
is as this link

sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

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

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-browser

and i totoaly agree that snap is buggy and flatpak lack security in it’s core

sorry if i miss understand your post

I think he meant he wishes that the distro’s own, native repos had Brave packages.

You could be right though, I guess we’ll just have to wait for the OP to weigh in. Certainly as you suggested, after adding the repo initially, installation and updates are simple.

got it now thanks for exxplanations
i think cause there will be faster update as it would take time for each distro to update their distro

and in some certain app i prefer to your the dev repo cause i get update faster which could fix one of the critical bug in faster way that what i do when installing database for example i do not install it from the disro repo

sure time will till
thanks again and have a nice day :slight_smile:
