I tried the sphere browser.
Look here:
https://sphere.tenebris.cc/#home

The following error occurs:
guest@porteus:~/Downloads$ ./Sphere
./Sphere: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Done_MM_Var
How can you fix such an error (undefined symbol error)?
Thanks

Hi Donald,
Thanks very much.
But how do you come up with such tricks?
Where can I find information?

Hi Kulle
did it work?
But how do you come up with such tricks?
Where can I find information?
10% is what I know [I've been using Linux for quite some time].
10% I find in my notes [It's sometimes hard to remember where].
but most of the inspiration comes from <insert search engine here>. :)

Hi Donald,
Yes it worked.
I have now also read here:

But I didn't quite get it.
