Installed Brave on Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia via command line, works great except the only way to launch Brave right now is from the terminal typing “brave-browser” I would like to know where the icon would be or how to update to have one.
Here’s step by step how I installed it:
sudo apt install apt-transport-https curl
curl -s https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-core.asc | sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/brave-browser-release.gpg add -
echo “deb [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
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
So it installed fine, works great except there’s no way to launch it except as I said, by using the terminal, btw if you close the terminal, you also close the browser I guess because launching via terminal Brave becomes a child process from terminal process.
