Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

pepper is chrome only on linux, so it won't be supported in dwb.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Pepper Flash is only supported via Chromium and derivatives. Since DWB is based on webkit-gtk, it would probably only be supported -if- Portix goes through with porting DWB to use Blink as it's rendering engine. Which he's hinted at, but also said he doesn't have time for right now.

Someday I hope these questions will stop being asked on every forum because flash will just be dead, like it deserves to be...

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi,

I am trying to get the content handler to pipe pdfs into zathura (a pdf viewer) with all websites. The solution I've got so far works for everything but www.arxiv.org (a scientific publication database that I work with a lot)... which uses some kind of forwarding? whatever it does my script leads zathura to prompt something along the lines of unknown filetype.

In dwb/userscripts/extension_loader.js

extensions.load("contenthandler", {
  extension : {
     "pdf" : "xterm -e 'wget -q -O - %u | zathura -'"
  }
});

Has anyone an idea how to solve this?

Another small thing that is merely a bit annoying: this solution keeps three windows open: browser, xterm and zathura - I'd like to remove the (empty) xterm window - any ideas how to accomplish that?

What about this?

"pdf" : "sh -c 'wget -q -O - %u | zathura -'"

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

There's no reason to use xterm in the first place.  Just use wget piped to zathura.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

dwb is great, here are my first questions:

-Is there any way to import bookmarks from Firefox or Chromium?
-dwb does not remember visited links after I close it. When I reopen visited and unvisited links hae the same color. How should I fix it?
Edit: I saw it is a wontfix... It is a very useful feature...

Thank you

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Two slight problems I am having with dwb:

1- I have activated the adblocker and am using Easylist as the filter.  I find there are a few sites that now load significantly slower - most are fine but about 10% of them take at least 10 seconds to load up, versus say two seconds. I can provide links if necessary. Has anyone else noticed this?

2- I have my old Chromium bookmarks in an html file that I have bookmarked as a local file. I can open that local file manually or from tabbed history, buy when I go to the dwb bookmarks page the file:///  will not open. Strange. Any ideas?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hey, I'm using a dark theme and I've got a problem opening/switching tabs. Every time I do so, there's a white flash during the brief moment the tab is being opened. I was using Luakit before and they had a fix to this by setting the webview transparent, but I can't find anything like that in dwb. Any ideas what to do?

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

You can also set webviews transparent in dwb with a script:

//!javascript

Signal.connect("createTab", function(wv) { wv.transparent = true; });

Place that script in ~/.config/dwb/userscripts/

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi,
after enabling adblock I get:

Unable to load page
Problem occurred while loading the URL about:blank
URL cannot be shown

Try again    Search

in some places where ads were.
Pressing "try again" hides the message (i.e. "about:blank" is loaded after all).

Not a big problem, but what's wrong? Does anybody have any idea?

Yes, the commandline syntax has change from quiv-0.4.2 to 0.9.3, this needs to be fixed in the extension.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Cannot get HTML5 videos to play. I get the sound and the scolling works fine but screen is black. I have loaded all required gstreamer packages. Any ideas?

Did you install the gstreamer0.10-* packages or the other gstreamer stuff?

***EDIT***

That was a really silly question, wasn't it? You'll need all of the plugin groups to get full HTML5 including gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg.

Thank you - that one package solved the problem.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Having problems with this website (needed for course work) :

http://www.codeskulptor.org

When one click the "Save" button a new URL should be created and available in the address bar, instead dwb shows me a blank page. Any ideas?

I know and i don't know when i have time to fix it, if you want to use the git-version you have to use  the gtk2 version for now.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

I'm having weird bug with dwb-git on i3wm. When I open some websites, it killed my broadcom wireless driver(BCM4313,brcmsmac) and I cannot systemctl restart/stop/start NetworkManager from terminal either. When i switched to console tty2, I saw this messages flooded my screen continuously:

wl0: fifo 0: descriptor error
wl0: fatal error, reinitializing

The only way I know to get my NetworkManager and broadcom driver active again is to close the lid, put it to sleep for like 10 seconds, it works but too annoying when it happened too many times.

Then, I try dwb-git on XFCE and open the same site that killed my NetworkManager and Broadcom driver and this time, dwb crashed. But the network dan broadcom driver still alive. OK, alright.
I love i3wm and dwb but I have to use XFCE right now if I want to continue using dwb.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

The gtk3 compilation errors are fixed now, however i had to remove "Copy to clipboard" also copies to primary selection for now in the gtk3 version.

@serdotlinecho: That sounds weird, i don't know how to fix this or even reproduce it, i don't own a machine that uses the wireless driver.

Re: dwb - a webkit web browser

Hi portix,
with fontconfig 2.11.0 fuzzy fonts are back in my dwb, broking the patch reported in the ArchWiki page.

They appear only with certain sites, such as google search or Github.

screenshot

These are my dwb settings.

Any tips?

dwb's settings are irrelevant for font-rendering. It doesn't look blurry here, maybe you are missing some fonts, do you have ttf-freefont, ttf-liberation or ttf-ms-fonts installed?
