Thread: Where is python-webkitgtk for Leap 15?

  1. #1

    Default Where is python-webkitgtk for Leap 15?

    Tumbleweed has python-webkitgtk in its repositories, Leap 42.3 has python-webkitgtk in its repositories, but Leap 15 does not. python-webkitgtk is not even in /repositories/devel:/languages:/python/ for Leap 15. Am I missing something? Is it provided with some other package on Leap 15?

    Looks like it hasn't been built for LEAP 15 yet.
    https://software.opensuse.org/packag...thon-webkitgtk

    Don't take a chance that someone will notice this Forum post,
    submit a "feature request" to https://bugzilla.opensuse.org

    I'm as surprised as anybody that this <very> important and often used python component wasn't built along with everything else.

    Hi,

    OK, so it isn't just me. I've filed a bug here -> https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1098442

    Hopefully it will be picked up and resolved.

    Hi
    I doubt it, no action for six odd years, likely dropped for security issues...

    I see it had a tweak 4 months ago;

    Looks like...

    The base webgtkkit is of course actively maintained
    https://webkitgtk.org/

    The "original" python webgtkkit may be in the process of being deprecated,
    It seems to likely still be available in PyPi
    But there is a newer "more recommended" way to implement
    https://wiki.python.org/moin/PyWebkitGtk
    and
    https://www.gnu.org/software/pythonwebkit/

    HTH,

    This package was dropped from Factory along with webkitgtk and subsequently not included in Leap 15.0. We do not want to reintroduce it.

    Thank you all for the replies. Now I can stop periodically checking for it. One third party app I used was dependant on it, but I'll have to wait until the app is ported.
