Hi Doug,
Not using authentication. Testing it earlier showed the best thing was to authenticate right after opening the browser. All it does is encrypt part of your profile.
There are a bunch of command line options for the webengine, linked from the documentation, which IIRC includes an option for different profiles. Simpler might be to change %HOME%, either with a script or using the program properties, could have a couple of program objects.

Hi Remy, the print preview and printing are known issues.
The timing thing sounds like worth opening an issue for, especially if you can reduce it to a small testcase.

Most of my packages are still i686 and Dooble is stable here.

Hi David,

I doubt ant bug reporting would be any use.  It appears the developer gave up on the browser 7 years ago so I don't think we can expect any help from him.

You mean the upsteam developer? Latest commit was 17 hours ago according to
As for the port, most of the problems are actually in the Qt5 webengine, think Gecko for Firefox, SeaMonkey and Thunderbird

Hi Mauro,

 Well - I guess I should have tried it first! When I go to 'la Reppublica' I also see what you see - missing letters in the headline. Probably for the same reason as Doug saw on 'TheWeatherNetwork'. No idea why, so probably should be reported at github as a bug.


Probably SVG problem

Hi Remy, try adding set EXCEPTQ=Z in your environment, easiest is in a cmd window, then start Dooble in the same cmd window and see if it generates a trp when it exits. If not, try set EXCEPTQ=ZZ.

OK, I think one problem is that media-downloader expects yt-dlp to be executable.
Copy it to yt-dlp.cmd and at the top of the file add
Code: [Select]
extproc k:\usr\bin\python.exe
adjust path to where your python is installed, perhaps c:\usr\bin\python.exe
Now it almost runs, with python failing like this,
Code: [Select]
[media-downloader] cmd: "f:/Home/dave/.local/share/media-downloader/bin/yt-dlp.cmd" "--newline" "--ignore-config" "--no-playlist" "-o" "%(title).200s-%(id)s.%(ext)s" "--progress-template" "download:[download] %(progress._percent_str)s of %(progress._total_bytes_str)s at %(progress._speed_str)s ETA %(progress._eta_str)s" "--progress-template" "postprocess:DoneDownloading" ""
k:\usr\bin\python.exe: can't open file 'F:/home/dave/yt-dlp.cmd': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Seems python can't get past .local, on *nix a leading dot makes a file hidden, so we copy yt-dlp.cmd to %HOME% or f:\home\dave here and we get,
Code: [Select]
[media-downloader] cmd: "f:/Home/dave/.local/share/media-downloader/bin/yt-dlp.cmd" "--newline" "--ignore-config" "--no-playlist" "-o" "%(title).200s-%(id)s.%(ext)s" "--progress-template" "download:[download] %(progress._percent_str)s of %(progress._total_bytes_str)s at %(progress._speed_str)s ETA %(progress._eta_str)s" "--progress-template" "postprocess:DoneDownloading" ""
[youtube] QJFFUT_WWpI: Downloading webpage

[download] 100% of 1.78MiB at NA ETA NA
[media-downloader] Done downloading
[Merger] Merging formats into "Ladyva - Quarantine Boogie-QJFFUT_WWpI.webm"

So I guess Python has a bug with directories with a leading dot not being seen or perhaps expected behaviour.

Edit, quit now works here.

Code: [Select]
extproc %UNIXROOT%\usr\bin\python.exeworks as well for yt-dlp.cmd and is portable.

Hi Martin, you need to update Python on netlabs-rel before enabling netlabs-exp

Hi David, media-downloader seems broken when it comes to downloading yt-dlp. Use wget to download it from the URL shown in media-downloader to the directory also shown in media-downloader, here F:/home/dave/.local/share/media-downloader/bin and restart media-downloader, which I had to kill here as it didn't want to exit.
Test yt-dlp before restarting by running it as python yt-dlp --version or --help or giving it a youtube URL, eg "python yt-dlp"
Media-downloader does seem broken here hanging with,
Code: [Select]
[media-downloader] cmd: "f:/Home/dave/.local/share/media-downloader/bin/yt-dlp" "--newline" "--ignore-config" "--no-playlist" "-o" "%(title).200s-%(id)s.%(ext)s" "--progress-template" "download:[download] %(progress._percent_str)s of %(progress._total_bytes_str)s at %(progress._speed_str)s ETA %(progress._eta_str)s" "--progress-template" "postprocess:DoneDownloading" ""

It might work with just yt-dlp, a fork of youtube-dl IIRC. If nothing else you could use it on the command line, python yt-dlp or such.
Note that with youtube-dl, I had to disable CTYPES or such.

If you examine the image, it is the-weather-network-logo.svg and likely the text beside it is also svg. Hmm, going to and running an example in Dooble results in "Sorry, your browser does not support inline SVG" SeaMonkey the same result.
In conclusion, seems SVG support is more broken in Dooble then Mozilla.

It's nothing to do with a downloadable font as far as I can tell. Looks the same with JavaScript turned off. It's weird text as it is non-selectable. SeaMonkey uses these fonts to display the page here,
Code: [Select]
DejaVu LGC Sans Bold
Arial Bold
DejaVu LGC Serif
DejaVu LGC Sans

Does anyone actually know Joop? Hopefully he is OK, but thinking about all the people that have simply vanished leaves me wondering. At that if I dropped dead tomorrow, all that the community would know is silence. And we are an aging community.

How hard would it be to maintain stabs support in your fork? And whatever happened with aout being depreciated?

To have a router that allowed changing the DNS server, Can't change mine as it pulls in the internet over LTE.
I use updated yesterday and now  3.5 MB's in size. Wget pulls that fine. Even use it on my phone.

Hi roberto

No, Ii definitely do not have that file anywhere.
Possibly an application created that file on your system so *before* deleting make a backup somewhere.



It's probably part of xslt-devel as it is used by configure scripts and such and I do have it. If you're not building anything that uses xslt, you can delete it or remove the xslt-devel package
