Midori thread

#1 Postby Richard » Wed Aug 19, 2015 8:42 pm

I have tried Midori from time to time as they keep improving.
The Browser
Midori is a lightweight, fast, and free web browser. It aligns well with the Xfce philosophy of making the most out of available resources. It is also the default browser of the beautiful elementary os.
The version of Midori in the Wheezy repo is a bit long in the tooth.

I tried the version from the Midori download page in MX-14.4+:
http://midori-browser.org/download/debian/ (midori_0.5.9-1_i386_.deb)
but it wouldn't install.

Code: Select all

richard@mx142:~/Dropbox/Apps-Lin
$ sudo dpkg -i midori_0.5.9-1_i386_.deb
Selecting previously unselected package midori.

I wonder if it is possible to build it for MX-14.4+?
It is small, fast and if stable might make a good first browser.

the 0.5.10 needs jessie/mx15 but the 0.5.9 looks like it may go on mx14. Check back tomorrow.

FWIW, I'm currently testing Bodhi Linux 3.0, which uses as its default browser Midori 0.5.10. It's crashed several times, under undemanding conditions.

Unfortunately, on MX-14 with Midori-0.5.7, from the repo,
I get the same result as @chrispop99.
What I see looks good,
but it goes away when I try to use it.

There must be something missing if it works for others with Jessie.

But, strangely enough, I rebooted with the newly installed
Liquorix 4.1-5.dmz.2-liquorix-686-pae kernel,
and it seems to be working fine.
So far no crash? First time I've been able to use it.

It's still working.
Only way I've found to add a shortcut to Speed Dial
is via Clipman. Cutting and pasting doesn't work?

It definitely uses fewer resources on my Aspire One netbook.

Curious about the kernel change solution.
Will reboot later and see if it still won't work with 3.16-bpo.

There were some issues or problems with Midori a year or more ago when Jessie was still in "testing"

I'm not sure what the issues were but they must have considered them serious enough that they removed it from "testing" https://packages.qa.debian.org/m/midori.html, that's the reason there isn't a midori package in the Debian Jessie repo right now.

They did briefly put it back in testing (this time the Stretch "testing" repo) but removed it again last month. I don't know why they put the 0.4.3* version back in the testing repo instead of a 0.5.x version

How's the kernel working so far? We don't get a lot of feedback on it.

Debian has also added a 4.1 kernel to jessie-backports recently.
