Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

I just had severe problems with qutebrowser this morning.  It took several seconds to start up.  Any keybinding (e.g. to open a quickmark) took several seconds to register.  And then typing in textboxes in the forum here every keypress took 2-3 seconds to register.  This made it impossible to use.  I don't think this is qutebrowser per-se as I cleared my cache and tried with a new profile, and the same problem existed.  I switched from [community]/qutebrowser to qutebrowser-git from the AUR, and the problem persisted.  I rebooted a couple times, yet the problem persisited.  I checked my pacman log and all that was updated since it last worked was the kernel (4.5.4-1 -> 4.6.1-2) and nss (3.23-4 -> 3.24-1).

I downgraded both of these back to the versions I had yesterday and the problem is gone.  I'm at work now so I can't investigate further just yet (I will tonight), but I thought I'd drop this note here in case others run into a similar problem.

EDIT: seems to be the same issue as the following thread with a misleading title:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=213533

I guess qutebrowser is the only program that makes me bother having a gui toolkit installed tongue

EDIT 2: I intended to investigate this tonight, but there is no issue on my home computer - it seems to be from an interaction between the new kernel (or nss) and some hardware and/or configuration.  In any case discussion of this issue will be best on the thread linked above.

EDIT 3: I just removed xf86-video-intel and am now using modesetting, and everything works fine now.

Hmm, I'm at a conference until sunday and qemu pulling in gtk3 made me postpone the upgrade yesterday. I guess that I got very lucky this time...

FWIW I just made sure I had the packages to downgrade locally, and then upgraded and rebooted - no issues here.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

Does anyone know how to bind create a binding so that it will execute a command that takes the next key pressed as input?

For example, the (really nice) new positional marks can be set with `+<next-key-pressed>. I would like to configure qutebrowser so that I can do m+<next-key-pressed> to create a positional mark from the next key pressed, but I cannot find a way to do this. Binding :set-mark to m only causes an error, since the set-mark command takes a key as an argument.

Thanks.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

You can set a binding to 'set-cmd-text -s :set-mark'. When you press the associated binding, the ':set-mark' will appear in the command prompt, so that you can type the key and press enter to launch.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

I have that set up currently, but I find having to press enter a little annoying relative to just pressing the key and the letter (a la Vimperator, Vim, and Zathura). Is there currently any way around that?

Thank you.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

There's no generic way to do this for any command right now, but for the marks, all ' and ` do is to actually enter dedicated keyboard modes via :enter-mode jump_mark and :enter-mode set_mark. You should be able to bind any other key to that.

Perfect. More generally, thank you for all your great work on the browser.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

I'm following that project since the beginning, it was one of the motivations to keep QtWebKit support in parallel with QtWebEngine smile

I already played with it a bit, and with a few patches (most of them upstreamed now) it works fine apart from session saving.

I still think QtWebEngine is the better solution though, because it's simply the better backend.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

Anyone has tried using whatsapp web? I can't scan the QR code. In firefox I don't have any issue using the same phone.

Other QR codes work just fine in qutebrowser, it's weird.

I've heard about this issue before - it's one of many things which will be solved by the upcoming QtWebEngine backend.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

Hi,

I'm been using the qutebrowser for couple weeks now and i'm having two problems that I really can't solve. The first one I cannot by any means update adblock through :adblock-update, it just fails every time. The second one is what bothers me more, I cannot watch youtube in resolutions higher than 480p, when I try 720p the browser crashes and I need to switch back the resolution, I have already installed all the necessary gstreamer packages and even played a little with hardware-acceleration, but it did not solve the problem.

I would really appreciate some help.

P.S. Sorry for my english I'm brazilian

How exactly does it fail?

If you have gstreamer-vaapi installed, can you try uninstalling it?

First thanks to answer The Compiler

It shows a message in red in the top of the tabs "hosts [100%|?.?B] - Socket operation timed out"

Well, uninstall gstreamer-vaapi actually helped a little, the browser does not crashes anymore when I choose 720p, but its impossible to watch videos because it just shows a frozen image. After watching some videos I noticed that now even 360p videos started freezing after some time playing.

That's odd - can you reproduce it when you start qutebrowser with --temp-basedir too? If yes, can you please do :report after reproducing it so I can see the debug logs?

Ugh... not much I can do about this I'm afraid until the QtWebEngine backend is ready.

Ok, thanks for your help anyways.

I must say that your browser really shines upon others. Congratulations from Brazil for your work and dedication.

There are two issues here:

  • It seems qutebrowser can't download http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/hosts - can you do from another browser, or is this something about your connection or the server?

  • qutebrowser doesn't finish processing the adblock lists when a download failed it seems - I opened #1634 for that.

As a workaround, you can edit the content -> host-block-lists setting and remove the someonewhocares one, then you should be able to successfully run :adblock-update.

Re: qutebrowser - A keyboard-driven, vim-like browser based on PyQt5

backend=webengine is coming along very well.  It's awesome to be able to be able to watch netflix and amazon video in my regular browser - I can finally ditch that bloated beast of another browser I had installed just for that purpose.

At the moment I can't get hulu video working - but I haven't tinkered with it any yet.  I think chromium needed widevine for that.

WideVine should work with Qt 5.7 if it's installed - see this blog post.

Thanks, perhaps widevine is working as netflix plays.  Hulu must be something different.

I get SSL errors with pages with invalid SSL certificates wink

Qt uses OpenSSL, so you could find out more via openssl s_client -connect example.com:443.

Maybe you updated your system (and thus certificates) without updating pacman first? You could try running sudo update-ca-trust by hand.
