This is really daunting for a newbie to follow! Is there a really click and install method in MX repository?

It's not in any of the Debian repos, nor in ours (though 8 others are). You can download a deb from here:

https://laptop-updates.brave.com/latest/dev/debian64

That will download the package, and then you can just click it. It installs on MX-17.1, but when you try to launch it nothing happens for reasons that become visible when you use a console:

Code: Select all

$ brave
[25176:25176:0401/165631.827502:FATAL:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(126)] No usable sandbox! Update your kernel or see https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/linux_suid_sandbox_development.md for more information on developing with the SUID sandbox. If you want to live dangerously and need an immediate workaround, you can try using --no-sandbox.

May explain why Debian does not have it at all...
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

Now that newer versions of Firefox can't be built as genuine MX Linux packages any more: Is that any better in Brave? Just curious.


Greetings, and have a nice weekend :happy:, Joe
