I’m using .56.15-3 on Manjaro Linux 18 Gnome. I’ve tried both the version in the official Manjaro repos and the version in the Arch User Repository (.56.15-1). They both are having the exact same issues:
- Upon opening Brave, it claims that users are “using an unsupported command-line flag --no-sandbox”. Users in the Arch User Repo have offered a temporary work around that seems extremely unsafe:
sudo sysctl kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1
To make it persist after reboot:
echo kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/00-local-userns.conf
This is explicitly warned against in the Arch documentation:
Unprivileged usage is disabled by default unless the
kernel.unprivileged_userns_clonesysctl is set to
1, since it greatly increases the attack surface for local privilege escalation.
Brave complains that it is not the default browser, even when it is. Always.
Brave’s Shields panel appears bugged.
- Brave opens up a second icon in the dock if it is added to the favorites in Gnome.
