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.

@hemish Please see the (just) pinned comment for prebuilt packages.

hemish commented on 2023-12-23 07:20 (UTC)

Any prebuilt packages for this? This package is not in chaotic-aur due to less votes. My potato laptop just crashes while compiling this.

q234rty commented on 2023-12-06 16:51 (UTC)

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

q234rty commented on 2023-12-02 14:57 (UTC)

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.

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

Ricky_cezar commented on 2023-08-12 20:39 (UTC)

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.
