This is a patched version of webkit2gtk w/ image data pasting support.

This is based on the original patch in, modified to use proper filenames and support larger images.

The issue is now resolved and please make sure you have pkgconf 2.1.0-2 before building.

Yeah... There's an issue with new pkgconf, see e.g. . I'm currently a bit hesitant to push a workaround, you can just ignore the update if you already have 2.42.2-1 (I'll comment here when the issue is resolved), or you can downgrade pkgconf to 1.8.1.

does not compile on cachyos, which does have the latest non aur gst-plugins-base-libs installed.

Prebuilt packages can be found in the [archlinuxcn] repo, see for instructions.

Same as @Ricky_cezar. It takes hours to compile on my ThinkPad T560. A binary would be much appreciated :)

Is it possible to make a binary version of this package? It takes too long to compile on older hardware and consumes a lot of memory.

This package used to work with cinny ( but the latest update causes immediate freezing for me now so I had to switch back to the non image paste extra repo package. Are there logs somewhere I could submit in the hopes of getting this fixed?

glad that someone like my patch.

as for pasting content using the Asynchronous Clipboard API is enabled for GTK platform. (be aware that this can only works under secure context, so http is not availabe)

I've tested that using (only https supported), image paste works good.

but for legacy web pages (which using clipboardData.files or clipboardData.items), this patch is still required for image paste support.

for newest webkitgtk-6.0 (webkitgtk-2.40.1), the patch is almost the same:
