FAQ

Q: What's the difference between this package and extra/webkit2gtk?

A: webkitgtk/webkitgtk2 provides WebKit1 API/ABI, which is not compatible with WebKit2 API/ABI provided by extra/webkit2gtk. WebKitGTK+ 2.4.x is the latest branch that provides WebKit1 API. Later branches provides WebKit2 API only.

Please don't flag it as out-of-date.


Q: Are there binaries for this package somewhere?

A: I maintain the latest built package at https://github.com/frealgagu/archlinux.webkitgtk/releases


Q: "error while loading shared libraries: libicui18n.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

A: You'll need to rebuild against the latest version of ICU.


Q: "error: ‘WTF::StringImpl::StaticASCIILiteraicASCIILiteral’ has not been declared" or any enchant errors.

A: If you are building in parallel, try disabling parallel using -j1 in /etc/makepkg.conf


Q: Why building takes too long time?

A: WebKit is inherently big and complex. You can modify /etc/makepkg.conf or PKGBUILD directly to build it in parallel.

  • Change "make all stamp-po" by "make -j x all stamp-po" in PKGBUILD replacing x by cores your machine has. (Thanks to @MadMe)

  • Change /etc/makepkg.conf in that way: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/makepkg#Parallel_compilation under # ARCHITECTURE, COMPILE FLAGS use MAKEFLAGS="-j9" # It should be one more than your virtual CPUs. (Thanks to @tuxsavvy).

However be pending if errors occur as mentioned in previous question.


Q: How much I want to wait to a successful compilation?

A: It varies of your PC's processor and RAM, the times shared in the comments are as follow:

  • 3.5 hours to build on core i5 laptop with 8G of RAM, makeflags j4. (@cabbage)

  • 13.5 hours to build on AMD Athlon X2, makeflags j1 (@Bonnietwin).

  • 5-6 hours on Core2Duo E8400 with 8GB RAM, makeflags j2 (tuxsavvy).

  • 50 minutes on 6c/12t 3.3GHz (@kubrick).

@frealgagu I'm experiencing the same error as @Muflone on icu 69.1-1, tried webkitgtk2, build failing as well

Muflone commented on 2021-05-17 20:57

failed to build from source:

I've uploaded the binay package to https://github.com/frealgagu/archlinux.webkitgtk2/releases compiled with icu 69.1

JL55 commented on 2021-04-25 18:53

@frealgagu Arch has updated icu to version 69 recently, could you help to upload a binary package with latest icu?

chiwanpark commented on 2021-04-21 17:26

@frealgagu I've found the cause of build failing with glib 2.68.x. Recently, glib has released breaking API changes (https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/glib/-/merge_requests/1715). Here is the pull request of patch for the changes. (https://github.com/frealgagu/archlinux.webkitgtk/pull/1)

This does not build on aarch64. It does build fine and works on armv7. When attempted on aarch64, the error is:

@frealgagu Thank you!
