Working browser widget/linux-flavour combinations?

Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami via use-livecode
I would like to test some browser interaction on linux.

Please, could someone who works with a LC version that has NO
problems with the browser widget tell me this working 32/64 bit
LC version - linux flavour combination?

Thanks in advance.

Never tried it; so have just done:

Xubuntu 16.04 64-bit, 8.1.3: "something"  Had to KILL Livecode.

As above, 9.0.0 DP-6: no obvious difference.

Tut, tut, tut.

sincerely, Richmond.

Thanks Richmond.

There are bug reports from Sept 2016 reporting this 'something'-answer you
describe above.

I tested with Mint 173 to latest, 32bit. Always had to kill LC 8/9 after the
the something-dialog, exactly as reported to LQCC (#17715 and links there).

I can not believe that nothing changed since then: The browser widget is a
'showcase'-member of all LC advertising. Should at least basically work.

However "showcase" the browser widget may be you should remember that,
as far as I can see,
Linux versions come a long way down the food chain.

Re: Working browser widget/linux-flavour combinations?

Hi all,

The Browser widget does work as expected in the *64-bit* Linux versions we
officially support. I have an Ubuntu 16.04 VM and I can confirm this.

**However**, several users have reported some strange problems on
particular Linux distros (including Ubuntu 16.04), which although they seem
unrelated to each other, they are actually related.

One of those problems is the "something" dialog. Another problem is the
non-functional Dictionary (note that the Dictionary uses the Browser
widget).

The common factor of all those problems seems to be locale-related. If you
see those problems, the workaround is to launch LC from the terminal using
this command:

LC_ALL= LC_NUMERIC=C "path/to/livecode_executable"

For anyone interested, see bug
http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16848 and all the bugs that are
mentioned there.

Best regards,
Panos

Just tried it, and surprisingly enough, the browser widget works for me
in 9.0-dp6.

Nobody is more surprised than I am.
Just a simple smoke test, but even so...
64-bit Linux Mint 17.3 cinnamon.

So I tried Mint 173 cinnamon 32 bit and Mint 181 cinnamon 64 bit,
used LC 8 and LC 9, in Virtualbox on Mac and on a 64 bit Linux box.

Both show with the browser widget the "something"-window that Richmond
described and LC is to be 'killed' after trying to use the widget.

Now launching from Terminal with Panos' advice
( LC_ALL= LC_NUMERIC=C "path/to/livecode_executable" )
brings up a widget, yes. But this works sadly only "halfway":

No context-menu, not even for navigation, no connection to localhost
possible, limited HTML5 support (some files don't work which work in
Win and Mac without any problem).

Is the widget not a 'modern browser' in linux? Or is the installation
of special lib-files required to have it fully working?
