Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

I read:

* gtk3 support (we build against gtk2 by default, enabling gtk3 requires uncommenting some lines in the Makefile).


Has anyone built it with gtk3 support yet?

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

I don’t seem to get keyword searches working:

Why does \awiki work, while \tw doesn’t?

This is my config:

@cbind  \\awiki<Archwiki:>_  = uri http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Special:Search?search=\@<encodeURIComponent(%r)>\@&go=Go
[…]
@cbind  \\tw<Thinkwiki:>_ = uri http://www.thinkwiki.org/index.php?search=\@<encodeURIComponent(%r)>\@&go=Go

If I type the second „i“ in „\awiki“, it gets changed to „Archwiki:“ immediately. When I type „\tw“, nothing happens.

here is my whole lot of search engines which I’d very much like to use with uzbl…

I hope it’s just an easy mistake…

Best,

Jakob

in that list you have two entries for Archwiki.
Maybe something is wrong (at least messy)

and for duckduckgo too, you have double entry.

Also, try commenting ALL but thinkwiki, and see if it works (then try to get all of them)

Thanks for your qick answer, but that was not the problem: I commented all (except for tw) out and still found it not working.

But looking at the config, I was wondering if „<Space><Space>“ after the @cbind command might be the reason and surprisingly, it was! So I changed all the <TAB>s I had after „@cbind“ to double space and now it works… as easy as that smile

Thank for your push into the right direction!

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

I don't know if anyone can help me. I'm trying to set a binding where I can toggle my tabs on and off. I have gotten it to work....sometimes. It seems to randomly decide if it will toggle or not. Here is the code in the config:

@cbind  e   = set show_tablist =  \@<if ("\@show_tablist" == "0") {"1";} else {"0";}>

Change the user agent.  I masquerade as Firefox:

set useragent       = Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0b9pre) Gecko/20110111 Firefox/4.0b9pre

Google for 'user agent strings' and you'll find websites which will supply typical ones for other browsers.

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

Is anyone else having problems with latency? When I attempt to close tabs, there is a delay of several seconds from keybinding to close 3 out of 5 times, especially on graphically rich sites (flash disabled). I have this problem (sort of) with Chromium as well, but not in Firefox. Machine resources are well under max (8gb ram, phenom x4).  I thought it was perhaps a webkit problem, so I installed libwebkit-nightly from the AUR, but this doesn't seem to have made any difference.

Anyone have similar issues?

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

After I had the same feeling on my old AMD XP 3000+ (512MB RAM) AND my new Thinkpad x220i (core i3 + 4gb ram), I changed first to luakit, then dwb since they feel much more responsive…

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

I can confirm that this problem does not occur in Luakit but does occur in Chromium and uzbl. Luakit and uzbl both require libwebkit, so why the difference?

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

Havingupgraded to latest 17.07, the middle-click to open new window or tab evaporated - it's gone. I'd removed my config dir - same thing, nothing changed - middle click does nothing . Also, I tried git version from today without my config dir, and still middle click does not open new window. ????? I'll stick with 04.11 version for the time being.

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

Same here with middle-click, but I don't use it much and so hadn't missed it.  It doesn't register when running uzbl-browser -v from the command line.

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

Hi,

I discovered this topic while I was searching some information on how to solve my following problem(obviously on uzbl):
-When I type in a textbox(for example in google's search bar..) it isn't reactive at all, sometimes some letters aren't even printed, so i need to type it again
-And sometimes uzbl itself seems a bit slow

For information, I have a Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 @ 1.83GHz

Thank you all in advance

P.S:excuse me for my bad english, but I'm french


The program said:"Install windows 2000 or better" so I installed Linux

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

The bindings you guys came up for toggling variables are clever, but fortunately a better way was added in the 2011.11.28 release:

@cbind e = toggle show_tablist 1 0

This thread has been pretty dead (and I hope I'm not performing necromancy right now), but now that I've switched to Arch (it's a vast improvement) I can provide support here.

I just decided to try out uzbl-browser today (along with awesome wm), and I have to say that its a really great browser, it's fast, and very simple to use. I love it!

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

Sorry for bumping the thread ...

Did anyone notice that Flash videos from blip.tv do not seem to play in uzbl? And yes, it's actually only blip.tv; YouTube, Vimeo, various news sites that I've tested work, but whenever I try to watch a blip video, I get a black box telling me that the video is currently not available.

It plays in Chromium and Firefox, though. I also tried to change my user agent to that of Chromium and Firefox respectively to see if maybe blip itself blocks uzbl for some reason, but that didn't help.

Any suggestions?

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

As I can't watch videos on blip.tv with dwb (Video temporarily unavailable) but firefox, I'd suspect it to be a webkit related problem not specific to uzbl…

Re: uzbl. A browser that adheres to the unix philosophy.

You're right, it seems to be webkit-related. I found some similar bug reports for the dev version of Chromium (for both Windows and Linux). Also Android devices seem to have this problem as well; there's someone on blip's troubleshooting forums complaining about it. smile
However, it works with the stable version of Chromium, just not with the dev version.

Strange, but I guess I have to fallback to Firefox for now.
