The tarball is not compressed from a directory, thus it is better to create a directory to uncompress it:
mkdir -v midori-0.5.8 && tar xf midori_0.5.8_all_.tar.bz2 -C midori-0.5.8 && cd midori-0.5.8
Install Midori by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr && make
To test the results, issue: make check from an X terminal emulator.
Now, as the
--enable-gtk3: Use this switch if you
want to build Midori with
WebKitGTK+ 2 dependencies.
--enable-apidocs: Use this switch if
GTK-Doc is installed and you wish
to build and install the API documentation.
export NOCOLOR=1: This prevents the build process outputting colored text. Colored text is fine if you're running the commands in a terminal, but if you compile it with a script and pipe the output to a log file the control characters that color the text can makehe log file difficult to read with a text editor.
