Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Nice little browser in the tune of links for small tasks and does things that links won't do, but nice for certain things.  Surprised that this little tool does flash (on user's request) and java applications.  It even has requestpolicy like firefox also.  It is a perfect compliment to the awesome desktop!

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Well dwb is a webkit browser and webkit supports flash and java, so this shouldn't be surprising wink

I experienced exactly the same issue on deviantArt, particularly with users' nicknames. However, barely a few days ago I rebuilt cairo -- v. 1.12.14 -- with Ubuntu, respect-fontconfig and expose patches, and the odd rendering nuisance is gone. If anyone has been experiencing the same and is looking for a solution, I posted a new PKGBUILD in the AUR (see comments) so you can give it a go.

Ah...I take that back, luakit allows modification by lua just like awesome, but dwb still fits well with awesome.  Oh, right, epiphany was a webkit browser.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Does dwb have a problem with mouse wheel or it is just me?
When the pointer is on the scroll bar it works well, but when I scroll down on the page using the wheel or the touchpad, the page goes up

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

dwb doesn't touch webkit's scrolling behaviour with the mouse wheel at all, scrolling with the mouse wheel is webkitgtk builtin.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

A big thanks for this nice browser!
I'm using it for two weeks and it matches perfectly my needs.

Just in case, a little question: is there a way to add a "send by Mail" function, which would feed an e-mail client with the title and the url of the current page?

Thanks!

You could use a script for it, e.g. you could create a bash-script ~/.config/dwb/userscripts/sendbymail, if you call :sendbymail the script will be executed with the environment variables DWB_URI and DWB_TITLE set to the uri and title.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

This can be done with the contenthandler userscript. Run

dwbem -i contenthandler

edit: Ok I just realized that this is not what you were asking for.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi guys,
Do you know why the font rendering isn't the same with Firefox and dwb (with similar fonts.conf)? I took a screenshot of my personal website and the font seems to be fuzzy with webkit.
Here: http://linuxien.legtux.org/uploads/desk … 162751.png
Firefox left and dwb right.

The rendering is much better on Fedora, but I don't know why...

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi. I'm using dwb with a proxy. Is there a way to tell dwb to bypass the proxy for some addresses or addresses ranges?
For example, localhost or 192.168.0.0/16

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@masque: that's not possible, dwb uses libsoups default proxy-implementation and all tabs share the same soupsession, if you disable the proxy in one tab it would be disabled in all tabs.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

@Ypnose: that's all about differences between Webkit and Xulrunner, and further between versions of libraries used in Arch and Fedora... I'm afraid there is nothing one can do about it other than choose the version they like better because it 'seems' more coherent and correct than the other. By the way, the Webkit rendering seems to be (IMO) better (sharper and clearer) than the Firefox one, though neither is unacceptable to my eyes.

One way could be to set exceptions in your proxy? Only posible of courst, if it's a local proxy such is privoxy…

That's what I was thinking, but I haven't found how to do it, yet.

It's a chain of local proxies. Browser->privoxy->polipo->tor.
I need to bypass all of them or, at least, tor. Otherwise I get socks error when opening local pages.

Works very fine!
As a feature request, it would be great if the current selected text could be exported as an environment variable, too. It would allow to quickly implement a rudimentary note system as a batch script.

I had this problem with dwb and other webkit browsers.

Add this in your ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf

  <selectfont>
    <rejectfont>
      <pattern>
        <patelt name="family">
          <string>Clean</string>
        </patelt>
      </pattern>
    </rejectfont>
  </selectfont>

inside the <fontconfig></fontconfig> tag.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

It has been a long time since I last logged into these forums, but I think it was worth it to say that I've never seen a program as perfect as dwb. If I'd have the skills to make a web browser, it'd be exactly like this one (probably a bit worse though). The only problem that I have is that it crashes often on Gmail, the post on the first page of this thread explains my problem very well:

firecat53 wrote:

edit3: Wow -- it doesn't like gmail! The site works fine...until you try to open a different view and switch back and forth -- instant crash.



About the problem explained above, this is what did the trick for me: sudo ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-no-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/

Thanks worked like a charm! I had to create that fontconfig directory. How is it related to dwb?

I found that workaround in the luakit thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 2#p1233592
webspider said: "I had the same issue with dwb and looked through the css stylesheets of affected websites to discover that they all had "Clean" as a font family. Seems like it's bound to a bitmap font by default that looks horrible at higher sizes".
