I just installed Elementary OS.

I'm switching from Windows 10, I don't know anything about Linux, I'm not a technical person.

I want to install Brave browser, I checked Brave guidelines, but I don't know what any of it means.


Can someone please help me install Brave? Thank you!

  • have you already tried ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2019/11/… ?

  • Hey, @VladPop! I followed the instructions in the link you provided, but eventually I got this message: 'E: Failed to fetch brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/dists/hera/InRelease 403 Forbidden [IP: 443] E: The repository 'brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com hera InRelease' is not signed. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details' How can I finish installing Brave?

    Open /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list as sudo and replace hera with stable so that is says deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main. Save the change and try installing again sudo apt update && sudo apt install brave-browser

  • To open a file as sudo, right-click on Files -> New Window as Administrator

  • @VladPop, I'm sorry I'm not following since I don't know anything about using Linux, can you explain in more detail? You said "Open /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list", am I supposed to open it using terminal? If so, how? Also you say "To open file as sudo, right-click on Files -> New Window as Administrator", where do I find a Files menu?

Just follow the Ubuntu installation. Open the terminal and follow the steps.

$ 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

    I tried that previously and it didn't work, but now it worked after editing brave.list file. Thank you for your answer, though!
