I can't get Gnome Web to install on #Slackware... it is infuriating. I love that browser. Sooooo annoying. I guess I'll use Firefox for now. Also I love Slackware, but it seems that everyone really likes #KDE on this platform so most of the programs are built assuming you are on KDE. Although I don't mind Qt, I very much prefer GTK.
@poetgrant I like gnome web. Jut wish the latest was packaged for elementary
@jordan31 When I'm done, it will be for Slackware... hehehe
@alcinnz that package is in SlackBuilds ('official' 3rd party packaging site). I got that, but for some reason meson keeps failing to build. I'm going to try doing it the old fashioned way when LibreOffice finishes compiling.
@poetgrant Great! That would have been a real pain to keep up with.
Let us know when you've got this figured out?
@alcinnz Will do. Meson usually doesn't give me problems, not on Slackware. Ironically, on eOS I constantly had issues with meson. hehehe... this is the first time I've had an issue on Slackware.
@poetgrant Did you try its flatpak? (I see a more recent post about flatpak, so I'm guessing yes)
@klaatu I am actually just now trying the Flatpak... one issue though, there is no way I can find to actually launch Flatpak apps? There are no icons, and I tried typing com.libreoffice.etc.etc.etc.etc
Have you figured this out yet?
Yes, you're right @matt, I guess my actual issue is when an application doesn't add a .desktop file, it's difficult to launch.
I haven't installed Gnome Web as @poetgrant is attempting, so I'm not sure what its .desktop file status is, but I would imagine it provides one.
Oh nevermind (just tried), Gnome Web has made its flatpak unavailable due to security issues.
Okay, so I removed it and reinstalled it. Now it created a desktop file. It must have been a fluke.
I couldnt get LibreOffice flatpak to load. It would try, but fail. Tried reinstalling a couple of times. In the end I went a got Alien's package for LibreOffice since the SBo package kept failing to build.
