Restoring bookmarks from old linux computer

linux
#1

Currently I have bookmarks and am using
Version 0.62.51 Chromium: 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit) on linux mint (not sure why it says Chromium as it says “Brave” right above it).
My directory structure is /home/me/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/Default and there is a file named “Bookmarks”.

I would like to restore bookmarks from an old linux computer that is not functional but I have access to backup files. There is a directory /home/me/.config/brave but I do not see a file named bookmarks, nor a folder /default. I do not know what version of Brave was running, but it seems the directory structure and files may have been named differently then. How would I restore the bookmarks, and without deleting my current bookmarks?

Welcome to the Community @ovezy

Brave is based on Chromium. That show which Chromium version that Brave is currently on. While the Brave version itself is 0.62.51.

But, you seems a bit outdated. The latest version is 0.64.x. :wink:

Based on the path, it seems that this one is the previous Brave (muon).

You may want to try to install the older version from here https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/releases/

Docs https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/blob/v0.27.3/docs/linuxInstall.md

Then export your bookmarks from the old version or import it to the new version.
