so it looks like building with latest llvm/clang is ok now, but now i'm getting some weird graphics lib error that I cant hunt down anywhere:

src/Waterfox/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/dist/include/mozilla/dom/ImageBitmap.h:203:15: error: unknown type name 'gfxAlphaType' 5:17.30 gfxAlphaType aAlphaType = gfxAlphaType::Premult);

so @hawkeye116477, could you be so kind to build your binary version of waterfox-kpe-classic with additional flags:

--disable-safe-browsing --disable-synth-speechd

(only the first one is important to me, but the latter would be nice as well). Reason for this is to avoid browser from calling google on every request, as it does even when you disable in the options->security page ("Block dangerous and deceptive content). Meanwhile I'll keep hunting down that error, looks like a missing library or maybe and incompatible version.

@toxygen Oops, sorry, looks like I hurried up a little, anyway on line 231 was correct, name on source field was bad.

toxygen commented on 2019-11-14 02:47

two items:

PKGBUILD line 231 should be : install -Dm644 $srcdir/waterfox-classic-kpe.1 \ "$pkgdir/usr/share/man/man1/waterfox-classic-kpe.1"

(fails because cannot stat waterfox-classic.1)

second, please warn that you renamed /usr/bin/waterfox to waterfox-classic. not a biggie but it was weird :-)

also, still cant build on rust 1.1.39 and clang/llvm 9.0.0 versions that work for me are clang 8.0.1-1 llvm 8.0.1-3 llvm-libs 8.0.1-3 compiler-rt 8.0.1-1 rust 1:1.38.0-1.1

newer versions through errors while compiling

@toxygen KPE means KDE Plasma Edition :-)

toxygen commented on 2019-10-28 23:16

shouldnt that be waterfox-classic-kde ?

hawkeye116477 commented on 2019-10-27 09:28

This is Classic. I'll rename it and also push waterfox-current-kpe.

@toxygen There is no waterfox beta upstream any more.

Names and versioning changed since this month. There are now two different "stable" versions(Waterfox classic and waterfox current), based on different Firefox versions (legacy and modern). And versioning changed for both to YY.MM.X

So if this is the legacy version it should be named waterfox-classic, as is not possible to distinguish classic from current based on version number.

toxygen commented on 2019-10-26 23:42

@ranger - there is a waterfox-kde-beta which i believe is "current" so this would be classic dont know why the version changed to 2019-10 rather than the 5x.xx we had before

ranger commented on 2019-10-25 18:41

Is this Waterfox Classic or Current? Could help if you include in the name or description

toxygen commented on 2019-10-21 23:26


rm src/path, or rm the whole src before makepkg

are you using the -e option?
