PostPosted: Mon 13 Jun 2005, 14:40    Post subject:  Firefox and Abiword in GTK1  

I'd like to see an unleashed version of the latest Firefox re-compiled for GTK1. Same for abiword. If not, I'll have to use mozilla-1.7.8gtk1 and ted or textmaker-f.e.

I'm working on a tiny version of Puppy version 1.0.3 for 24MB systems, like my ThinkPad 560. I want to exclude GTK2, QT3 and any apps that use them (so Opera is out). I do want a full-featured browser and a full-featured word processor.

Don't need a mail program because most mail servers have web access. Besides, sylpheed can be added by the user. Furthermore, this tiny version is for road-travel computers where one doesn't really want to maintain their saved mail but rather leave the mail on the server for later retrieval at home.

JaDy, if you get this mini-Pup working could you put it in DotPups or somewhere so we can download it? I would really be interested in a really small Puppy with Mozilla and Abiword if it could run in 32mb or less. I have two old laptops that run fine except one is 48mb and the other is 32mb. They both have 2gb hd and p166 pentiums.

We can compile Firefox for GTK1, but not Abiword -- current version of Abiword needs GTK 2.2 minimum.
There is probably an ancient version of Abiword that works with GTK1.
...maybe, I'm not sure, as Abiword has used GTK2 for a long time.

EarlSmith: Certainly I intend to publish "mini-Pup" as you call it, but not as a DotPup 'cause it's an unleashed variation, not an application. I call it PupWin95.zip. Looks like it won't have Abiword (see reply from BarryK) but ted and/or textmaker. Reason is, to keep size small GTK2 won't fit. I'll also document in detail exactly how I put it together -- it'll serve as a tutorial-by-example on how to use Puppy Unleashed.

BarryK: I suspected Abiword couldn't be re-compiled, but I had to ask. I was pretty sure Firefox could be re-compiled with GTK1 because you've already done it with Mozilla. I look forward with hope to the Firefox-GTK1 version and meanwhile I'll proceed with testing and experimenting using Mozilla-GTK1 version and leave out word processing for now to make room.

Well, you can compile Firefox yourself!

Here is the configuration options for compiling Moz 1.7.8 gtk1:

Code:
./configure --localstatedir=/var --prefix=/usr --host=i486-pc-linux-gnu --with-x --with-pthreads --with-system-jpeg --with-system-zlib --with-system-png --enable-default-toolkit=gtk --disable-ldap --enable-calendar --enable-xft --disable-pango --enable-postscript --disable-xprint --disable-gnomevfs --disable-gnomeui --enable-crypto --disable-jsd --enable-plugins --disable-logging --enable-strip --enable-necko-protocols=all --disable-debug --disable-necko-disk-cache --enable-necko-small-buffers --enable-mathml --enable-composer --disable-xinerama --disable-freetype2 --enable-cookies --enable-extensions=cookie,transformiix,wallet,xmlextras --enable-mailnews --enable-application=suite --disable-accessibility


Obviously some of those need to be changed for Firefox.
For example, "--enable-application=firefox"
If you download the Firefox source, run:

Code:
# ./configure --help


to see the options.

The compiling process is:

Code:
# ./configure ...all the options here...
# make
# cd xpinstall/packager
# make


...then the binary tarball will be found in dist/ folder.

[/code]
