Revert Brave Flatpak to Deb

Hi there,

I switched to Linuxmint Debian Edition 6 (LMDE6) and thought: why install Bravebrowser via Apt-Repo, when I could use the integrated Flatpak Store. The Problem that I encounterd was, that the Brave Flatpak doesn’t seem to can access my KeepassXC via Addon because of the Flatpak restrictions.

So I tried this Fix https://www.vastactive.com/posts/keepassxc-firefox-flatpak/ which didn’t seem to work for me.

So I am going another route, by moving my appdata dir where the .deb Version would look for.

First I create backups via rsync-time-backup.

Then I move the folder




After that I uninstall the Flatpak version of Brave via

flatpak uninstall com.brave.Browser

Now let’s reinstall Brave via apt Package-Manager:

sudo apt install curl

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg] 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
