Missing browser pkgs

Post by nevets »

Hi Eric, happy New Year...
While these additional FreeBSD browsers are in your Ghost pkg repository:
chromium, ungoogled-chromium, dillo, midori, netsurf, linux-opera, surf-browser.
These others seem to be absent for some reason:
falkon, otter-browser, konqueror, dooble.
Personally, I'd like to not have to port falkon if possible.
Would you consider including the falkon pkg please in your repository?

If you install the ports package

pkg install ports

The falkon port may be there

You could then install the port

Thanks Neville, I've ported in the past but I hate doing it because whenever I update [Update Station / pkg update/upgrade ] later I inevitably get an OS mismatch and need to reinstall every pkg on the system.... unless you know a workaround... I'd prefer Ghost to build the pkg. :-)

I tried to build the Falkon port but it fails - which is presumably why its not packaged in Ghost.
