Here is version 1.1.28 as .PET and .SFS packages
Released 04th April 2013
http://www.slimboat.com

This won't work in Wary/Racy as the libs are too old.
In Slacko, Flash Player doesn't work. Anyone figure out why?

It all seems to work OK in Wheezy, Precise and Exprimo but is posted here just for people to try it out.

If you go to download these, make sure you use the correct "download" button on the datafilehost page.

LINKS REMOVED - See newer version below.

Thanks for these updates OscarTalks as I, for one, really do enjoy using SlimBoat. Cool Of all the Qt-based web browsers out there this has become my most-favourite of all to use!

Two thumbs up and a "Keep up the great work!" my fellow Puppian Friend. We sure do appreciate it, those of us who are unable to do so...

Cheers/Amicalement,

Slimboat really is a nice and fast browser.
It does everything a browser should do and speedily. I like it more and more.

Slimboat imported my crazy (giant) list of Firefox bookmarks flawlessly, where Opera missed part of them.

A few questions:

* Is it open source?

* Does anyone know how to change the 'skin'? I don't like the windows95-ish grey-brown and downloaded a fresher skin, but could not find a way to install it.
The online help leads to a non existing page 'skins usage and design'

Thank you OscarTalks!

hi bert

slimboat browser is QT based and the colours and fonts can be changed using qtconfig, type qtconfig into a terminal

Currently running SlimBoat 1.1.36 (official build) on Wary 5.1.1.
Had to add Extract-txz-modified.pet and libc6_2.11.2-10_i386.deb.

WARNING: libc6_2.11.2-10_i386.deb breaks Pmount.
(Fix is here.)

Also tested with Wary 5.1.4.1 and 5.2.2; same applies.
Will not work with 4-series.
It's very quick, even on a P2 / 350 with dial-up. Smile

Also found a bug:
It locks up when clicking on, then canceling, download links.
Has to be closed out and relaunched; nothing major...

Edit:
I'm comparing notes behind the scenes with another forum member.
He was able to get QtWeb to do the same thing, and suspects a WebKit bug...

@ Dewbie
Have you managed to get Flash Player working in SlimBoat in Wary?

@ Everyone
It seems there are some people who like SlimBoat so here is version 1.1.38 as .SFS and .PET packages

Released 07th August 2013

To download from Data File Host:-
Use the small grey "DOWNLOAD" button
If you see a larger "Download Now" button it is a Windows .exe downloader and an advert so ignore it.

Edit:- DOWNLOAD LINKS REMOVED
See below for newer version

No...despite having Flash in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, I'm getting a message indicating that it doesn't see Flash.

Dragging and symlinking Flash to /usr/local/slimboat/plugins makes no difference either.
(SlimBoat is installed in /usr/local.)

@OscarTalks: Where do you install SlimBoat in your .pet and SFS?
(Easier to ask than to download, as I have dial-up...)

@ Dewbie,

My SlimBoat packages place the main slimboat folder in /usr/lib as this seems to be the convention for browsers in Puppy. I believe other locations would be perfectly OK also though.

I have still not been able to get the Flash Player to work in Wary/Racy or Slacko. I did email the developers about it some while ago and they said that they were not sure why, but that it is not a path issue.

Downloaded Slimboat 1.1.38, Italian localization, just minutes ago directly from their website. Running it in Puppy Precise 5.6.1 right now and posting with it, after searching the forum to see whether someone else had already tested it - and Xman had!

Just for caution, I chose to place Slimboat in a separate folder rather than in the usual /usr system folder, to be able to get rid of it easily if not OK.

Very fast and responsive, seems to have no problem on YT: if I get it right, it does decode Flash videos perfectly (they should be the ones evidenced by the rotating-balls-circle logo while loading). Also doing fine on a HD video in Vimeo, both in Flash and HTML5 (it's clearly marked there).

A very pleasant surprise was to find a specific link for Puppy Linux in their Downloads page (in English only, no such link in the Italian page): followed their suggestions and all worked perfectly in less than half a minute i. e., after downloading and extracting the Gstreamer libs in place.

Of course a deeper and longer testing is needed, but seems interesting, although not really lightweight - 58 MB against SeaMonkey's 51 (full package).

This is what I'm getting in Wary 5.1.1, in Help / Configuration Information.
Notice the 0 next to Flash Download Control; everything else is a 1.
What number are you getting here with Puppies that will run Flash?
(In Tools / Options / Download Control, my Enable Plugins box is checked.)
