MX 17 Repository: The QuteBrowser Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Wed Oct 17, 2018 3:34 pm

We now have qutebrowser-1.5.1 in the test repository.

Image
qutebrowser is a keyboard-focused browser with a minimal GUI. It’s based on Python and PyQt5 and free software, licensed under the GPL.

It was inspired by other browsers/addons like dwb and Vimperator/Pentadactyl.
It can use either the somewhat aged qtwebengine that's part of Stretch's Qt5-5.7.1, or the newer 5.212 qtwebkit5 package I've also backported to the test repository.

You can download and install libqtwebkit5 from here if the NZ repo still has trouble. Most users will only need the lib package, but KDE users might also need to upgrade the qml-module package at the same time.
