Smile Midori 7.0


With new development at long last on Midori I have added the latest version 7.0 to Bodhi linux 5.0 testing repos. If you don't want to enable the testing repo you can download the needed deb file directly.



At first I was reluctant to do so as this version did not work with apturls and Bodhi appcenter needs that. But after filing an issue of said problem, the developer Christian (kalikiana) Dywan fixed the issue rather promptly. That is the way open source is supposed to work

As root edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list

At the end of the file add the line

Code:
deb [trusted=yes] http://packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi bionic b5testing
Save the file. That is it.

Be sure your remember to run sudo apt-get update.

I assume I could add that line, sudo apt install midori, then remove that line, as a method to try this new midori without affecting anything else?

i think it has been done before and is definitely safer than leaving it in there (unless you want loads of testing packages that might break your system) - but midori could evtl. become unusable, as your system updates progress, and midori doesn't.

I think at that point you can just fremove then reinstall it, assuming by that time it's in the main repo.
