Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi Portix,

don't know how the site really is called because it was an embed flash player. I think the segfaults are coming from the flash players. I don't really know the revision I am using. Cloned it about 22. last time.

I try out the new atm giving feedback after some testing

[Edit 02.09.2010] OK the new version seems to be a little bit more stable but still crashes, I copy the crash msg next time when it happens.

[Edit2 02.09.2010] now it happened again and what should i say its now only coming this.

Received SIGSEGV, try to clean up.                                                                        
Success.
zsh: segmentation fault  ./dwb2/src/dwb

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Thanks for reporting, but i need more information to reproduce it. The message

Received SIGSEGV, try to clean up.
Success.

means that a segmentation fault happened and saving the data was successfull. It would be great if you could post steps
to reproduce this segfault, or does it happen randomly?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi portix,

it is not completly random. When I go to youtube or some sites with flash in it, start the video and open a new tab it happens often (If I start the player and a pop up comes can come to).

That is how it happens for me but it appears randomly and when it crashed and I do the same again it works somehow.

[Edit]: btw can I somehow change the behaviour that when I do double click that the views are pushed?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I repoted a problem with my esktop where the browser would not recognize commands such as 'b' and 'o'.  I have discovered the the source of the problem is the num lock key.  When I turn it off the browser works fine and when I turn it on, it recognizes that I pressed the 'o' key but does not issue the open command.  Is there a way I can fix this?

This is not possible at the moment but I can make this behaviour configurable.

The problem is that numlock is recognized as Mod2. I removed the ability to use Mod2, Mod3 and Mod5 as a modifier, this
fixes the problem.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey Portix,

found another thing. When I wanna open a bookmark, I have to open it in the current view (tab how u wanna call it) or open a new one (for the new I have to browse to google or something first). Would be nice if there is a keybinding for "open bookmark in new view"

Added in the current revision, the default keybinding is gB for a new view or tab and wB for a new window. I also added the keybindings
V and W, the first will open the next navigation in a new view, the latter in a new window.

Edit: btw, you don't have to browse to google, you can also open a new empty view with "ga".

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi Portix,

I've been using dwb for some time now and wanted to say thanks for your efforts. One question I have is regarding the searchengine keycommand 'gs' which adds an entry to a file in ~/.config/dwb/searchengines. I would like to know the intended use of this, and the method. I am assuming that as in uzbl and jumanji etc. I can enter the command mode and execute a search with my preferred ehgine.

Any help appreciated.

I can give you an example: If you added a wikipediasearch with the keyword 'w' you can search on wikipedia using the
open-, viewopen-, or winopen-command and and typing "w <your search>". Without a keyword the first entry in
~/.config/dwb/searchengines is used.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi portix,

maybe its only for me, but the find feature is broken. When I search for something it only highlights the first letter and jumps to them.

Explanation: Searching for Download all D/d's are highligthed.

Edit: I have to write the complete word in CAPITAL letters that he finds it.

Can you test if its only on my machine?

Thx in advance

I cannot test it in the next days, since i won't have access to a linux machine, but i will test it will test it when possible.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

OK bad news, somehow this time it randomly crashed without any flashplayer open. This time it was only a tab of archlinux forums and one with facebook. Don't know how much flash is involed by facebook.

The thing with the find is working again like a charm. Reboot fixed it I think.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Any chance we'll see a session saving feature sometime soon, perhaps to mitigate the frustration of dwb crashing? I love dwb, but it crashes quite a bit...

Just so you know, to reproduce a crash you can load a website in a new view, then switch back to your original view and try using j/k to scroll up and down a lot. Using the mouse wheel seems to make it crash more often, also.

I might try taking a look at the source code tonight, but I'm more of a systems guy so I doubt I'll get too far. Portix, maybe you'd be willing to take me under your wing and do a little bit of hand holding? I'd be able to take some of the development off of your shoulders, I've just never worked on a large scale project before.

It would be easy to have a session saving feature (it is implemented already but sessions can only be saved explicitily at the moment), but i have not much time this month. The strange thing is, that i hadn't any crashes for weeks and also cannot reproduce the crash with your described steps. It would be great, if you could create a backtrace and maybe post it on the bitbucket bug tracker, i think the forum is not the right place for this. To compile dwb with debugging symbols you can change to the src-directory and compile it with

make debug

Any help with dwb is welcome, so if you are still interested you can contact me via bitbucket (or the forum email).

Edit:
I made a small change, the current session will be saved when dwb crashes and can be restored with dwb -r.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

***MEMORY-ERROR***: dwb[5697]: GSlice: assertion failed: sinfo->n_allocated > 0
zsh: abort      ./dwb/src/dwb

first new failure, came after i read a news on www.shortnews.de and went back to the site before.

Ps. I used the make debug and know using dwb-debug to browse. Where is the file written to?

Edit:

(dwb-debug:2388): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_get_events: assertion `GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed

(dwb-debug:2388): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed

(dwb-debug:2388): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
Received SIGSEGV, try to clean up.
Success.

this came out after dwb crashed

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I also cannot reproduce a crash on shortnews.de. There will no output file with simply running dwb with debugging symbols.
To create a backtrace you can can use a debugger like gdb. The steps with gdb are
* compile with debugging symbols (>make debug)
* run gdb (>gdb dwb-debug)
* in running gdb instance enable logging (>set logging on)
* start dwb from gdb (>run)
* make dwb crash
* create a backtrace (>backtrace)
* exit gdb (>quit)
The output of gdb is written to gdb.txt.
Thanks in advance.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Ok, I just started using dwb and I find it really good. If only I could change some font settings and find out how to make use of tabs!

(oh, and adblock of course)
