Thread: xxxterm web browser, webkitgtk 1.6.3

  1. #1

    Default xxxterm web browser, webkitgtk 1.6.3

    Any openSuSE success with xxxterm web browser, which uses vim commands. Have it running using webkitgtk 1.6.1 and it really wants 1.6.3. openSuSE 12.1 doesn't have webkitgtk 1.6.3 only version 1.6.1

    Even though other distros like Fedora16 have it I can't seem to find it for SuSE.

    I'm running openSuSE 11.4 and wont bother to upgrade unless I can get a fresher version of webkitgtk.

    Why use xxxterm you may ask: well if you use tiling WM and a lot of vim etc., it is very light, secure, and fast. And the vim commands part keep your hand on the keyboard. More output - less distraction.

    Thanks for any assist or pointers to a fresh webkit.

    In a different thread a user installed it successfully from this repository
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit.../openSUSE_12.1

    Sorry I missed that, rereading your post I have to ask what do you mean
    by "and it really wants 1.6.3", do you have missing features?

    One option is to download the fedora src rpm for 1.6.3 and rebuild it
    for openSUSE (not sure if you need to adapt the spec file).

    martin,

    You assisted me in a previous thread, for openSuSE 11.4. The repo at the link you posted was a webkit 1.6.1 and the problem was that it didn't replace the existing webkit. Generally one might not have noticed except I was having random problems at the sites that had a login. Working directly with the head programmer for xxxterm, he found that even though webkit 1.6.1 was in my system version 1.3 was the one getting called.

    That's the reason for my post, to find out if anyone got it working correctly. Oh, and when I tried to remove 1.3 yast wanted to replace tons of stuff with 32 bit, I'm 64 bit.

    Have tried to compile 1.6.3, it configured OK, and make towards the end quit saying fatal error.

    Really want xxxterm and it looks like having to change distro to be able to be up to date.

    Strange - I installed the xxxterm now on a 12.1 machine and will try to
    see what happens there. Don't expect something today.

    Because other software depends on the 1.3 hence you need it, but it
    should not be called by xxxterm.

    Will try that myself and report back.

    I quickly checked the xxxterm on a 11.4 now
    Code:
    martinh@ganymed:~/tmp> ldd /usr/bin/xxxterm | grep webkit
    libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0 => /usr/lib64/libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0
    (0x00007f7d16e94000)
    martinh@ganymed:~/tmp> rpm -qf /usr/lib64/libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0
    libwebkitgtk-1_0-0-1.3.10-6.7.1.x86_64
    which shows it is linked against 1.3 and this is then of course called.

    On the 12.1 machine it is linked against 1.6.1 (and there of course the
    1.6.1 version is called).

    Can you provide the output from
    Code:
    rpm -qa '*webkit*'
    from your 11.4 system? Maybe a LD_PRELOAD trick works here.

    No, does not work, I guess your only option is to use 12.1.
