To use the webcontext plugin, you need to install the either the gtkmozembed or the webkit perl bindings.
This shouldn't be necessary, but it is for now on most install, if it is not done gmusicbrowser will crash (segmentation fault) as soon as it tries to display a mozembed widget. Add “/usr/lib/firefox” to the library path, either everytime by doing “export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/firefox”, or only once by adding the path to /etc/ld.so.conf and running ldconfig (needs root/sudo)
Under Debian, you usually use Iceweasel instead of Firefox ; you have to add /usr/lib/iceweasel in the /etc/ld.so.conf :
include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf /usr/lib/iceweasel
Running ldconfig produces an error on my installation :
debian:/home/bbrice# ldconfig ldconfig: Erreur de la procédure mmap du fichier /usr/lib/iceweasel/libsoftokn3.so
But it doesn't seem to be important in the use of the MozEmbed plugin.
the perl-Gtk2-MozEmbed-0.80.0-3mdv2010.0 package works simply with the Important instructions above.
Ubuntu / Debian
Remi made a package on this page
Install from source
These instructions will install the gtkmozembed perl bindings in a sandbox, that way, you don't need root permissions and can't break your system.
- mkdir ~/sandbox
- Download and untar Gtk2-MozEmbed-0.06.tar.gz from sourceforge
- cd Gtk2-MozEmbed-0.06
- perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/sandbox && make && make install
And PERL5LIB must be set when gmusicbrowser is launched, so that it can find the installed Gtk2::MozEmbed. It can be done either :
- by adding “export PERL5LIB=~/sandbox/lib/perl/:$PERL5LIB” in your ~/.bashrc
- or by running gmusicbrowser through a small shell script :
#!/bin/sh export PERL5LIB=~/sandbox/lib/perl/:$PERL5LIB exec gmusicbrowser
save this script, for example in ~/gmusicbrowser.sh, make it executable :chmod +x gmusicbrowser.sh
and change the command in the launcher's properties with : ~/gmusicbrowser.sh
On Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, I had to specify more the path for perl libraries, by using
Then follow the Important instructions above
You can test everything works by running “perl examples/pumpzilla”
