Solved:QtWeb

Post#1 by blue4meridian » 12 Feb 2015, 16:57

Salutations...

I tried to convert the .deb package to .xzm unsuccessfully from...

http://webwarper.net/ww/~av/www.ubuntuu ... base/qtweb

This is the source code...

http://webwarper.net/ww/~av/code.google ... p&can=2&q=

I do not know how to compile (yet) so if anyone can... please post a download link for QtWeb.xzm/txz.

Best Regards...

Maybe someone will, but I will not build it from source because it involves the qt sources.

Meanwhile, from what they write on the following link there is a 32bit application for linux:
http://www.qtweb.net/download.php
It worked well on my 64 bit installation. You have to run it using compat libraries module:
http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/extras/

All you have to do is to unzip or unpack QtWeb.zip. Change the attributes to executable for example in /porteus/modules folder:
right click for contextual menu > properties > permissions > executable

To start it:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/mnt/sda5/64bit_v31rc1/porteus/modules/scrot/QtWeb-b104# cd /mnt/sda5/64bit_v31rc1/porteus/modules/
root@porteus:/mnt/sda5/64bit_v31rc1/porteus/modules/scrot# ls
QtWeb*                       
root@porteus:/mnt/sda5/64bit_v31rc1/porteus/modules/# ./QtWeb

QtWeb is faster than Kmeleon the fastest gui browser for Windows.
QtWeb is faster than Dillo the fastest gui browser for Linux.
Most importantly... QtWeb is webkit based and Qt centric.

QtWeb is hosted here...
https://code.google.com/p/qtweb/issues/list

I reached out and explained my issue to these developers.
If they do distro packages their creation can be a common default like Gparted.
QtWeb doesn't seem to be actively maintained.
If this is the case... since QtWeb is open source,
if any one in the community has the skill set to fork it,
I'd be interested in hearing from them.

Best Regards...

Good to know bluemeridian, I will try it. I find that chrome is rather cpu consuming on old linux boxes. This might be a contendant for my msi-340x laptop, which runs rather slow mainly because of chrome. The only problem is being able to transfer all of chrome's setting to qtweb. :(

Thanks for the package cctan. :)

QtWeb doesn't seem to be actively maintained.

In the short term won't there be security issues, if there is not already some. :(

I am unable to reach my gmail account. :(

Many thanks for the module... :good: If this project is no longer actively maintained like SpaceFM maybe someone in the community has the skill set to fork it.
I've been a big fan of Arora and Qupzilla for years but QtWeb stands out head and shoulders above all the lightweight Qt centric WebKit browsers.

Best Regards...
