  • Running rose without systemd

    Running rose without systemd

    When i tried to pull the dependencies for rose: gtk4 and webkit2gtk5.0, gtk4 installed just fine, but webkit2gtk5.0 seems to be needing systemd etc as dependency. I'm running artix linux with openrc though and therefor dont have systemd etc. I don't really see why i would need systemd for a browser/webkit anyway lol

    I searched for a minimalistic browser for quite a while now and this looks really promising, but it seems like i wont be able to install it without changing distro

    So this may be the wrong place to ask, but is there a way to run the browser without systemd?

    I cannot build rose due to ld error:

    I'm guessing I miss some library but I don't know which. I also tried to install an AUR package, hoping it would automatically install all the dependencies but it didn't.

    The "Inspect Element" causes the browser to freeze

    Describe the bug When I open the Inspect Element and click some tabs, the browser becomes unresponsive. While I can still move the cursor, the browser doesn't respond when I click somewhere. Originally, I have found the bug when clicking in the "sources" tab but now it seems that a lot of tabs are giving this result.

    Expected behavior To work.

    Screenshots In the case of my problem, I don't think screenshots will help in any way so I don't post any.
