It feels like I spent most of the day down a rabbit hole. I wanted to vote for steemish on the rados.io ballot, simple enough. I went to the website and joined, so far so good. When I got on to the site, you need to go to your e-mail to confirm you are not a robot (I guess) and click the link to initially sign on.
Once I was logged in, I started to navigate through the tabs and on the ‘exchange’ tab I got status note saying the application requires ‘Metamask’ extension and now comes the rabbit hole.
I am running linux with a Brave browser. I have been using the browser for almost a year and I never had to mod it. I discovered it was problematic to install an extension (firefox is easy), I guess it is due to Brave being somewhat newer. For those whom have never tried Brave, I recommend it overall.
I found out that the newer release is suppose to come with Metamask installed so I went hunting for an ‘upgrade’ button, none was found. I haven’t found any information on why, it is suppose to be listed on the drop down menu for the ‘about’ tab. Having no luck with that, I figured I could update / upgrade using the terminal. I still need the extension’s script. I went to github to search for the extension and again with Brave being newer, I found that you need to use a ‘chrome’ extension.
I also thought that I could find a PPA to add to the repository and install the newest Brave file. Then I assume I could got to the terminal and do an upgrade. I wasn’t able to find a PPA.
I guess I could just install this on the firefox browser but I would like to use the Brave browser. This where I needed a break. I should be able to find the correct extension TOMORROW. If anyone has done this or has any ideas, I would appreciate the input.
The good news is that I was able to vote.
