Subject description: A compile of the Flock SocNet Browser
 

Here is a nice piece of bloatware to play with. This is actually version 2.6a, but I only realised that after I had packaged it.

Because this is for Puppy, I have removed the need for dbus libraries and also disabled Gnome support.

Here is a picture of it:



Looks like fun hey?

Anyway, here's the files: Flock 2.6a PET
You may need to do this:click to use the Skydrive online storage thingy. It just a small browser setting.

Enjoy!

James.

Ok. I'll do it tonight, i have to burn a liveCD first. The environment is fairly portable so it shouldn't be too hard.

I did try to do Chrome(ium) as well, but it was fairly tedious plus when I was compiling it needed to open an FTP, a NFS and some other port that escapes me. It kind of made me reach for the foil hat.

We certainly don't want any fashionable head-ware being used.... Smile

thanks sikpuppy Smile

I recently installed and was using this in Ubuntu
and tried the Youtube link
It had no Flash and I was forced to ferret around for the .so
using the command line [shudder]
Does this pet support Flash? If not - easy to set up?

On Puppy 4.3.1 is supports flash. It basically drags in the plugin already there which is used by Seamonkey-1.1.1.18. That's the beauty of all these mozilla based browsers...WHEN they work, they all work pretty much the same.

Oh, ok.

It's about the same size, 13Mb compressed in a tarball. So should I still go ahead, or is it a waste of time?
*edit* mine is about 35Mb extracted, the official package works out to about 37Mb.

sikpuppy,

it looks like you needn't bother, if it works out of the box in Dpup, it probably will in 4.3.1 as well...as far as the size comparison(uncompressed) goes, here it is...(in Dpup)

    Firefox 3.5.5 --> 30Mb
    Flock 2.6a --> 35Mb
    Opera 10.10b static --> 36Mb
    SM2.0 --> 41Mb



Cheers

Légion étrangère française au secours, pourriez-vous partager votre version réduite ....

Sur un autre point, serait-il possible pour vous de regarder Dpup quand vous obtenez la chance et me donner quelques conseils sur l'internationalisation ...

Merci

BTW...please pardon my bad schoolboy French... Smile

Bonjour à tous,

@ gposil,

I just removed the following files from flock/chrome :
browser.jar, browser.manifest, classic.jar, classic.manifest, fbranding.jar, fbranding.manifest, flock.jar, flock.manifest, flock-skin.jar, flock-skin.manifest, toolkit.jar and toolkit.manifest.

I am working on Puppy 4.31 to localize it in french for now. I'll turn on Dpup very quickly. I look forward to the beta5 version.

Cordialement Wink

Why? Doesn't that remove all the functionality? Without those it's just another Chrome lookalike. Or maybe Chrome is a Flock lookalike Razz

In any case...if you are going to cut something down to size wouldn't Firefox be a prime candidate?

James.
