I have a problem when launching Brave and Opera Browsers. The first time I try to use after getting on my computer, it took them too long to start running. However, Firefox and Chrome haven't got the same problem.

Lanching Brave by terminal I receive this output:

$ brave -v
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "appmenu-gtk-module"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

While in opera I get more or less the same:

$ opera -v
Gtk-Message: 19:22:11.269: Failed to load module "appmenu-gtk-module"

But the key problem is that when I try to install the canberra/gtk modules I get...

$ sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk0
Leyendo lista de paquetes... Hecho
Creando árbol de dependencias       
Leyendo la información de estado... Hecho
libcanberra-gtk-module ya está en su versión más reciente (0.30-7ubuntu1).
libcanberra-gtk0 ya está en su versión más reciente (0.30-7ubuntu1).
Los paquetes indicados a continuación se instalaron de forma automática y ya no son necesarios.
  libfprint-2-tod1 libllvm10
Utilice «sudo apt autoremove» para eliminarlos.
0 actualizados, 0 nuevos se instalarán, 0 para eliminar y 10 no actualizados.

So they say I've already got it.

Very confused about this kind of things! Any help from anyone please??

I've been struggling with a very similar issue for several weeks now. I solved it today by reinstalling opera directly from a .deb file:

  1. I started by uninstalling snap's Opera with sudo snap remove opera in the terminal.
  2. On the Opera website (https://www.opera.com/download) I downloaded their .deb install file. (currently opera-stable_75.0.3969.171_amd64.deb, but presumably this is updated regularly.)
  3. I installed this via apt in the termianl. I am told it is essential to indicate the full file path for this process (no ~/). Additionally, the 'tab' key was helpful in automatically filling out the specific filename. sudo apt install /home/[USER NAME]/Downloads/opera-stable_75.0.3969.171_amd64.deb

install gtk modules sudo apt-get install appmenu-gtk2-module appmenu-gtk3-module if you haven't done this first

maybe you have GPU driver issues, include the output of lspci -vnn | grep "VGA" in your question,

try to uninstall NVidia drivers and install mesa-dri-drivers..

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kisak/kisak-mesa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install mesa

and see if the problem still exists


Have the exact same with brave, had to sudo snap remove brave and follow install instructions from here https://brave.com/linux/#release-channel-installation annoying though.
