Linux install instructions
NOTE: If you experience a problem with dependencies while installing, you may want to try installing
git using the package manager for your distro.
NOTE: If Brave does not start and shows an error about sandboxing, you may need to enable userns in your kernel. Running with the
--no-sandbox flag is NOT recommended!
According to snapcraft.io
Snaps are quick to install, easy to create, safe to run, and they update automatically and transactionally so your app is always fresh and never broken.
Installation instructions for
snapd can be found here. Once
snapd is installed, installing Brave looks like this:
snap install brave –beta
On Debian snapd is available as part of the testing (currently ‘stretch’) and unstable (‘sid’) versions. It is currently not available in any stable version but will be soon.
Note: Rasbian is currently not supported due to missing features in the kernel shipped.
Generally you can install snapd on a Debian distribution via:
$ sudo apt install snapd
Afterwards everything is setup to get you started with snaps.
Tarballs are a group of files in one file. Tarball files have the extension .tar.gz, .tgz or .tar.bz2. Most open source software use tarballs to distribute programs/source codes.
# 1: Uncompress tarball
To uncompress them, execute the following command(s) depending on the extension:
$ tar zxf file.tar.gz
$ tar zxf file.tgz
$ tar jxf file.tar.bz2
$ tar jxf file.tbz2
Now change directory
$ cd path-to-software/
# 2: Build and install software
Generally you need to type 3 commands as follows for building and compiling software:
Where, ./configure will configure the software to ensure your system has the necessary functionality and libraries to successfully compile the package make will compile all the source files into executable binaries. Finally, make install will install the binaries and any supporting files into the appropriate locations.
# 3: Read INSTALL / README file
Each tarball comes with installation and build instructions.
Open INSTALL or README file for more information:
$ vi INSTALL
The easiest way to get apps.
- Pick your favorite software.
