Update: I’d like to clarify I’m obviously not using it in OpenSuse but would wish this issue be fixed for v1.0.
I don’t think I ever gotten an update that was on time, I’d usually had/have to wait a couple of days before I could download it manually via Konsole in Suse. I usually get something like this after the latest release.
Issue 1 -
@linux-dvtg:~> sudo zypper update brave
[sudo] password for root:

To install Brave in Suse using zypper:
sudo rpmkeys --import https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/brave-rpm-release/keys.asc
sudo zypper install lsb
sudo zypper addrepo --type yast2 https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/brave-rpm-release/x86_64/ brave-rpm-release
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper install brave
Issue 2 - To update Brave using zypper it displays errors, though not a critical, it would be excellent as Brave matures if the additional packages can also be listed/ticked for install similarly to other traditional software in repositories.@pakman also referenced this issue in Cannot update Brave on openSUSE Linux but was closed.
sudo zypper ref
sudo zypper update brave
If zypper throws an error similar to
Problem: nothing provides GConf2 needed by brave-*
Solution 1: do not install brave-*
Solution 2: break brave-* by ignoring some of its dependencies
Choose solution 2 and install gconf2 just to be safe. (sudo zypper in gconf2)
Issue 3 (linked to issue 2 regarding additional packages) - It’s also supposedly good to run the following on initial install but a couple don’t always install:
sudo zypper install libxss1 libatk-bridge-2_0-0 libgtk-3-0
gconf2-devel and libgnome-keyring-devel
Issue 4 - I understand that the speed of the downloads of the software and its following updates is greatly improved with the use Fastly Inc’s CDN for Macintosh and Windows but not for Linux, when the Linux Packages for Ubuntu/LMint, OpenSuse, Manjaro, Fedora, Solus and others are apprehended, could you kindly include Linux Packages in CDN as well, as 65-100 KiB/s is almost riveting.
