Help installing kompozer

Postby heiowge » Tue Feb 12, 2013 11:04 am

I've downloaded it. Unzipped it. ./configure doesn't work. Nor does sudo apt-get install kompozer Nor does running kompozer shell script. :?

I'm mystified. Every guide seems to tell me a different method to get it. One said it was in the repositories. It wasn't.

Anyone help?

I'm not surprised:
KompoZer 0.7 is not compatible with GTK ≥ 2.14 — expect crashes. If you’re using a Linux distro that ships KompoZer 0.7.10 with GTK ≥ 2.14, please inform the package maintainers about this.

(see http://www.kompozer.net/download.php)

Mint 14 is definitely using GTK> 2.14, so it fails. Get the latest source (0.8 branch) then follow these instructions: http://kompozer.sourceforge.net/dev/

Thanks. I got as far as this bit...


copy the “mozconfig” file for your platform, from the mozilla/composer/config directory to mozilla/.mozconfig
e.g. for MacOS X:

cp mozilla/composer/config/mozconfig.mac mozilla/.mozconfig


And couldn't find the mozconfig file.


btw, it was the .08 build I was trying.
