Moving to AUR issues.

Re: build from AUR brave browser failing with "brave-launcher not found"

that's brave, not brave-bin.

Anyway, how'd you obtain the PKGBUILD?

Maybe use makepkg without -si.

Or get brave-bin with pikaur -G brave-bin and then makepkg.

Ditto on brave-bin instead of brave.

I may have to CONSOLE you about your usage of ridiculously easy graphical interfaces...
Look ma, no mouse.

-si is fine, and please don't suggest using a helper before the user knows how the AUR works.

Doh!

Yes I had a 'brave' directory and a 'brave-bin' directory. I had intended to enter the brave-bin but I guess I did not so...

Once I ran the makepkg in the brave-bin directory, all went well.

So. Thanks for noticing that.
