Thanks, I 'll try that.

If I click on the repo link there http://linux.palemoon.org/
I only get the options for the GTK2 build.
It uses this link: https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... e=palemoon
Powerline adapters (dLAN) hardly interfere shortwave radio, so stop using them.

Yes, I still use a 64 bit capable Pentium 4 670 processor with Pale Moon.

GTK 3's in a different repo because of some quirks in the way the Build Service creates the user's directions to add the repo depending on the package name.

Some have suggested that I split palemoon into a palemoon-gtk2 and a palemoon-gtk3 package, but it's easy to suggest when someone else does the work, plus those changes would still require more changes to the instructions than my simple addition of a GTK 3 repo. But I agree that the GTK 3 repo should be added.

As for why I don't do GTK 2 versions for Sid and Hirsute, it's because GTK 2 is on its way out, if that's news to you.

I know, but GTK2 looks better and still works on Hirsute.

Go search for GTK3 theme that suits you then, there's plenty of them ;)

Hi Steve,

got a reference to this thread from a another thread regarding a question of mine.
Hope it's ok if i post my question here:

I'm in need of palemoon 29.1.1 .deb binary packages for debian 10, debian testing (the upcomming debian 11) and for raspbian.

Is there a archive with older versions of your palemoon builds?

On the palemoon-site i can only find a reference to the suse-download site (https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... e=palemoon), wich only contains builds of the actual palemoon version.

Greetings.

Or you could set up your own free OBS repo for Hirsute and have it build you a GTK 2 version--you can use the same sources as for the other distros' GTK 2 version, but you'll have to change the last line in debian/mozconfig so it only builds with one thread--something to do with the version of "make" in hirsute and sid seems to require that.
