    Default Brave Browser does not respond

    I just installed brave browser from snap store following what directions I could from the snap store and other website inputs. the install seem to work fine from the command line, the icons show up, but when I click the icon, the cursor just spins around and nothing happens. what information do you need from me to solve this problem. I don't have this issue with arch or manjaro. thanks!!!

    I tried that. in addition, i got the "No update candidate for 'gconf2-3.2.6-12.3.x86_64'. The highest available version is already installed." error and when I go to update brave, i get the permission denied error "Permission to access 'https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/brave-rpm-release/x86_64/media.1/media' denied."

    Default AW: Brave Browser does not respond

    There are some Problems:
    You have to set the Repo to autorefresh:
    Code:
    zypper mr -f brave-rpm-release
    Or add the Repo with autorefresh:
    Code:
    zypper addrepo -f --type yast2 https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/brave-rpm-release/x86_64/ brave-rpm-release
    Here is my:
    Code:
    zypper addrepo -f --type yast2 https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/brave-rpm-release/x86_64/ brave-rpm-release
    Warning: Legacy commandline option --type detected. This option is ignored.

    That's probably why people are having issues with installing in OpenSuse cause they've been trying to install the old unsupported MUON version. I wouldn't mind coming back to OpenSuse again for main host machine usage, but if I can't install Brave browser in OpenSuse without too many hassles, I'll just find another distro lol.
