Hi arky217,

This is the correct way to install Brave browser stable in Peppermint 10.  You copy, paste, and enter one line at a time in the terminal.

It's a cool browser too.  I bet you're going to like it.

Enjoy,

perknh



Ubuntu 16.04+ and Mint 18+

Code: [Select]
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 -

source /etc/os-release

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ $UBUNTU_CODENAME main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release-${UBUNTU_CODENAME}.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install brave-keyring brave-browser

You're welcome, arky217.  It's also a terrific little browser for an Android phone too. :)
