How do I install Netsurf-fb on Ubuntu 18.04?


It's not in the repositories for the 18.04 release. I checked and apparently, it's available for 17.10 and 18.10. So I tried getting the .deb files from the 18.10 repos, and it doesn't work -- the screen turns black and the OS freezes, I end up having to reboot the computer.

I'm hoping to get Netsurf-fb running on my minimal install of Ubuntu 18.04, it's better than Links and w3m, after all.

I can't find a PPA for it either, so it looks as if your best bet would be to manually compile the source code (https://www.netsurf-browser.org/downloads/gtk/).

Netsurf-fb
Netsurf frame buffer, I had not heard of that. Thanks.

I'll have to look at that.
