Installation of Midori

Install Midori by running the following commands:

mkdir build &&
cd    build &&

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr \
      -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release  \
      -DUSE_ZEITGEIST=OFF         \
      -DHALF_BRO_INCOM_WEBKIT2=ON \
      -DUSE_GTK3=1                \
      -DCMAKE_INSTALL_DOCDIR=/usr/share/doc/midori-0.5.11 \
      ..  &&
make

This package does not come with a working test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release: This switch is used to apply a higher level of compiler optimizations.

-DUSE_ZEITGEIST=OFF: Remove this switch if Zeitgeist is installed.

-DHALF_BRO_INCOM_WEBKIT2=ON: Links to WebKitGTK+-2.12.2 instead of WebKitGTK+-2.4.10. Strictly speaking, WebKitGTK+-2.12.2 is not required and Midori could be linked to WebKitGTK+-2.4.10. The former is deemed “experimental” by upstream, but seems to work well. The latter is an older API and less secure.

-DUSE_GTK3=1: Use this switch chooses WebKitGTK+ built against GTK+ 3, for WebKit2 layer support.

-DUSE_APIDOCS=1: Use this switch if GTK-Doc is installed and you wish to build and install the API documentation.
