Description of the issue:
Hello, I have been wanting to use Brave as my primary browser on Linux, however I am running into an issue. I cannot upload any files as the file picker dialog will not pop up when clicking an Upload button on any website I’ve tried.
Possible solutions I have tried: I have installed every variation of xdg-desktop-portal (wlr, kde, gnome, gtk, default) I tried installing kdialog I have set my preferred Ozone Platform to Wayland and enabled WebRTC Pipewire support in brave://flags Running brave from terminal with --verbose produces nothing at the moment of clicking the Upload button. Uninstalling and Reinstalling brave did nothing
I can get output from running dbus-monitor in a terminal and clicking an Upload button, which you can see at the link:
I’m assuming my issue can be identified somewhere in that output, but I do not know how to read it. Any help?
This is the rpm version of brave on SwayWM
How can this issue be reproduced?
Run Fedora 37 with SwayWM
Attempt to upload a file to a website (attachment on an email for example)
The button is clicked but does do anything, no file picker pops up and nothing happens no matter how many times you click.
My concern with the Brave flatpak is that to my understanding the flathub repo is not maintained by the developers. If I am mistaken, I will give that a try.
I just tried installing the beta and nightly versions, both of which experienced the exact same issue.
