Fedora 28 - webkitgtk,xulrunner,mozjs17 problem.

Fedora 28 - webkitgtk,xulrunner,mozjs17 problem.

New Ticket for Fedora 28.

We can reference this Ticket (F27 workaround) for things tried with a workaround for Fedora 27. As it stands, that workaround does not work for Fedora 28.

Current process: Install Pulse.

rpm -ivh ps-pulse-linux-5.3r3.0-b1021-centos-rhel-64-bit-installer.rpm



Attempt Dependency Install:

sudo /usr/local/pulse/ install_dependency_packages



This script will confirm the missing packages of:

  • webkitgtk- is missing in the machine
  • xulrunner is missing in the machine
  • mozjs17 is missing in the machine


Performing an Install of xulrunner has not been available since Fedora 26. Installing xulrunner with rpm produces this output.

error: Failed dependencies: is needed by xulrunner-44.0-9.fc26.x86_64 is needed by xulrunner-44.0-9.fc26.x86_64
	xulrunner < 46 is obsoleted by (installed) fedora-obsolete-packages-28-4.noarch

I have stopped here for now. But here is where we can play to see if we can get a workaround going while simultaneously notifying Pulse of the issue. :-)

Re: Fedora 28 - webkitgtk,xulrunner,mozjs17 problem.

So far the fix for this is not an official fix but another workaround like Fedora 27.



1. Find this RPM (I got it from my Network/Infrastructure team)



2. Install it:

rpm -Uvh ps-pulse-linux-9.0r1.0-b739-centos-rhel-64-bit-installer.rpm


3. Install a hidden dependency:


sudo dnf install compat-libicu57-57.1-2.fc28.x86_64



This install process should hopefully be it. I do remember modifying a Configuration Script meant for Fedora 27 and changing it to be 28, so it would perform the same tasks on 28. But I believe this was undone in the beginning and was just a rabbit hole. If this does not work for you, let me know, and I'll see if that was something that stuck from earlier.

Thanks to @flipPipe for discovering the compat-libicu57 dependencies.

Is there a similar solution for Debian/Ubuntu?


Thank you!
