@Asfhy, maintainer of QtWebKit is considering some generic solution, at least completely disabling Java under Linux, it almost doesn't work anyway plus Oracle deprecated their NPAPI plugin already anyway.

@JohnBlood and @Emdek: I have Otter Browser working using LD_PRELOAD to preload the JDK 9 My Otter Browser launcher has the command like this:

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/jvm/java-9-jdk/lib/ otter-browser "$@"

And now the latest version works (0.9.99-1 at the time writing this).

Maybe a wrapper script that look for installed and default java version and in that case append the LD_PRELOAD variable to the command could be added and used as launcher, don't know how difficult could it be to make one for that.

Safe to add armv7h as it builds nicely for my Raspberry Pi3 :)

@JohnBlood, it's QtWebKit crash caused by Java plugin, currently there are two ways to solve it: - remove Java NPAPI plugin (just the plugin, no need to remove Java completely), - disable plugins in the browser (by adding this to ~/.config/otter/otter.conf:

@Emdek I install 0.9.96-1, but when I launch it I only get is the apps top bar. Nothing else. Here is the trackback, as best I can figure:

@JohnBlood, yeah.

@Emdek, I see that there is a new version of Otter available (0.9.96-1). Should I try installing that before trying to capture a backtrace?

Emdek commented on 2018-02-27 07:41

@JohnBlood, any chance to get full backtrace? You can find instructions here: Basically you need debug symbols and gdb.

I installed this application via AUR in Manjaro. When I tried to open it from the menu, it failed, I received the following errors when I tried to open it via the terminal:
