installing midori

Post#1 by zadok2k » 17 Jul 2013, 17:16

Hi guys, I'm trying to install midori from ppm but after installation it will not open!!! I downloaded 2.1rc2 mate edition build your own with chrome browser and libreoffice. I burned to cd then installed to usb (fat32) created the save.dat file and rebooted before i tried to install anything. Everything works fine except for midori, when i try to open from console it says file not found!! when I try to open from menu, it just hangs for a few minutes (little wheel whirling) and then nothing. I have also used version 2.0 and had no problems, so I'm kinda stumped. Do I need to put the module in a different location since I'm using save.dat file? Oh yeah and I can't seem to find firefox browser in ppm? is this not a pre packaged porteus module? If not does someone have a module already built that I can download? Anyway thanks in advance and keep up the good work on this distro! Oh and as a side note I currently use crunchbang on my laptop and arch on my desktop system. I've been using linux for about 13 years so I'm not a noob from that standpoint only in regards to porteus.

Welcome on the porteus forum. :)
1) midori might have dependencies issues. Verify in cli mode:
slackyd -u (to update slacky repository lists)
slackyd -d midori
and give us the output

2) You have choosen chrome, usually firefox is standard, this is why it is not in the repo of PPM. Maybe brokenman, fanthom, ahau or Hamza will fix that now that we give the choice for the browser.

For now get it here for
-32bit:
http://dl.porteus.org/i486/testing/Port ... 2/modules/
-64 bit:
http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/testing/Po ... 2/modules/

3) Put the modules that you want to be activated after bootup in /porteus/modules folder.

Cheers!

Re: installing midori "SOLVED"

thanks for the quick reply!

OK after I rebooted and tried to load midori from cli, i get a missing shared library. (libicui18n.so.49) I have no idea what this is from!!! anyway I ran the slackyd commands and everything came back fine? up to date and midori "all packages "midori" are ok! Well I will just install firefox from the link you gave thanks francois.

I never got midori working, but firefox runs without a hitch.

@zadock2k:
I am really surprised that you were able to resolve your problem. Slackyd -d midori is just a way to have a diagnostic of the missing package. I am happy to hear that your problem just vanished.

If it comes back try a search on the file system for:
libicui18n*

If there is such a file on the system whatever the file ending, use symlink to satisfy libicui18n.so.49.

Please report if there is any other problem. We will be happy to provide a solution if there is. :twisted:

If you open the package manager there is a button called 'Library'. This is used to find which package a library belongs to (very useful). In this case it reports: icu4c-49.1.2-i486-1

So you can get this package using: slackyd -g icu4c-49.1.2-i486-1
This assumes you are on 32bit.

And slackyd will download automatically the package into the /var/slackyd/ folder. From there convert the txz to xzm by right clicking on the package and selecting the appropriate command. 8)
