To use the mozembed plugin, you need to install the gtkmozembed 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/ and running ldconfig (needs root/sudo)


Mandriva 2007

install the perl-Gtk2-MozEmbed-0.06 package. And follow the Important instructions above.

Ubuntu / Debian

There is currently no package for it in debian/ubuntu so follow the instructions to install from source, for this, on a ubuntu feisty, you will need to install these packages :

  • libextutils-pkgconfig-perl
  • libextutils-depends-perl
  • libgtk2.0-dev
  • firefox-dev

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. Replace /home/login/sandbox by a valid folder, this is where the files will be installed

  1. mkdir /home/login/sandbox
  2. Download and untar Gtk2-MozEmbed-0.06.tar.gz from sourceforge
  3. cd Gtk2-MozEmbed-0.06
  4. perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/login/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=/home/login/sandbox/lib/perl/:$PERL5LIB” in your ~/.bashrc
- or by running gmusicbrowser through a small shell script :
  export PERL5LIB=/home/login/sandbox/lib/perl/:$PERL5LIB
  exec gmusicbrowser

save this script, for example in /home/login/, make it executable :

chmod +x

and change the command in the launcher's properties with : /home/login/

On Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, I had to specify more the path for perl libraries, by using

export PERL5LIB=/home/login/sandbox/lib/perl/5.8.8/:$PERL5LIB

instead of

export PERL5LIB=/home/login/sandbox/lib/perl/:$PERL5LIB

Then follow the Important instructions above

You can test everything works by running “perl examples/pumpzilla”
