Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10, 17.04, 18.04 Debian 8, 9 Pale Moon repositories

Unread post by stevepusser » 2016-03-08, 03:04

Edit: Dropped Debian 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 builds with the 26.5.0 version. If anyone wants a Debian 7-compatible-build, the MEPIS 12 version should work with the wheezy-backports repository enabled to provide gstreamer1.0 packages. The repository signing key has also changed, so you'll have to repeat the command to get and add it, noting that that the keyfile may now have a number tacked onto the end, and you'll have to use that file name now.

I was finally inspired by the SMPlayer developer to try and figure out how this worked, so I regenerated the source files of the MX 15 build, created an account at the openSUSE build service, created the Pale Moon Package there, uploaded the sources, and the builds automatically started. I specified just those releases for building, and just the 32 and 64 bit x86 builds, but there are many other distros (SUSE, Fedora, Debian, etc) and CPU architectures available. It also automatically set up the repositories and their keys.

To install from this repo, follow these instructions:

Ubuntu-- replace the XXXX in the following commands with your release, such as 18.04

Code: Select all

sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/xUbuntu_XXXX/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:stevenpusser.list"

rm -f Release.key && wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_XXXX/Release.key -O Release.key

sudo apt-key add - < Release.key && rm Release.key && sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install palemoon
Debian: replace XXX with your release...Testing, 9.0, or 8.0. Note: Debian may not have sudo enabled.

Code: Select all

su -c 'echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_XXX/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:stevenpusser.list'

rm -f Release.key && wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/Debian_XXX/Release.key -O Release.key

su -c 'apt-key add - < Release.key && rm Release.key'

su -c 'apt-get update'

su -c 'apt-get install palemoon'
You can also find instructions for installing on this page:

https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... e=palemoon

Edit: Note that all commands in the instructions must be run as sysadmin, either as root or with sudo.

As I write this, the last build is finishing up for the 32-bit 15.10 package.

This seems pretty cool to me!

Edit: The Debian 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 repos have some gstreamer-1.0 packages to enable the build of Pale Moon 26.2+, as well as gstreamer1.0-libav, but the end user may want to get the libav and plugin packages for HTML 5 media playback from wheezy-backports and the 12.04 PPA.

All the repos now contain a patched gtk2-engines-oxygen that "knows" about PM and Fossa Mail, and won't make them crash when that theme is used.

Re: Ubuntu 15.10 and 14.04 repositories for Pale Moon

Bump: Added repositories for 12.0.4 and 15.0.4.

Note that where the instructions say something like:
For xUbuntu 14.04 run the following:
The "x" is added by the build service when generating the page. Just read that as "Ubuntu"; it's not to be confused with the Xubuntu version.

Can these be added to the approved third party builds? Mike & I do the approved Debian MX 15 and MEPIS 12 packages, and these are using the exact same source and configuration. I tried to set up a PPA, but OBS turned out to be a lot easier.

Very cool Steve, adding this to the approved build list would be excellent! Do you plan on adding a build for 16.04?

Thanks for adding these to the lists!

The OBS doesn't offer 16.04 builds yet; I'm sure that's coming after the official release. They may be dropping the 12.04 support, though. All I have to do is add the 16.04 repository when it's available, and then OBS will build the packages and update that repository instruction page.

I've also got some Debian users using the Debian builds from the same OBS repo; they all comment about how PM is so snappy on their machines compared to the current Firefox.

Nice one - I'd have to say the same for my Xubuntu machine - I always used to run Firefox but thought the project was losing it's way with all the mishaps and confused roadmap - when PM ran faster on my machine and I moved to KeepassX instead of LastPass and got these addon's working, I was very impressed!

I just hope the project keeps on building momentum as I think people have a lot of headspace for a standout FOSS browser like PM.

Hi,

I'm running Ubuntu Trusty and this is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much for providing this page.

@Moonchild: I think this page would also fit nicely in the Linux download page. I had trouble to find it. Indeed, I didn't want to bother with an installer.
BTW Great work, keep up!

I'll add something to the Linux page soon (probably tomorrow).

Given the relative popularity, perhaps the Ubuntu/Debian link should be at the top of the list, rather than Pandora?

Oh, this is good news! I'd vote to remove the abandoned PPA :)
Hope you can get an Ubuntu 16.04 build soon.

I quite agree on the 16.04 Ubuntu LTS release (due by April 21st).
In the meantime, would it be possible to update binaries to 26.2 release?
Thx a lot!

I'm uploading the 26.2.1 sources to it right now. Should be ready in a couple of hours. Sorry I missed the release of 26.2.0, I've been playing around with porting and configuring the Lumina desktop on my machine, which is pretty fun.

Has anyone tried the 15.10 deb on 16.04? I'm pretty sure there shouldn't be any compatiblity problems.

Hi Steve, I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and I've successfully installed the 15.10 deb (x86) on it !

I just went in and poked around the setup for OBS, and found that they have added Ubuntu 16.0.4 support, so Pale Moon packages are also now building for that release.

Thanks Steve, I'm still on 14.04 but thank you for this, I just switched from the PM Linux installer to your repo - you're the man!

FYI on Xubuntu 14.04 I got the following message after installing

Code: Select all

There is no public key available for the following key IDs 1397BC53640DB551
But a quick search and the command below sorted it.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 1397BC53640DB551
Does this sound familiar? Do you recognise that key ID?

The OBS automatically generates a key for each repo I have and publishes it to the keyservers, so I don't ever see it, pretty much like a PPA.

Did you try installing the key first with this command, as in the instructions?

Code: Select all

wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_14.04/Release.key
sudo apt-key add - < Release.key  
I'm also going to add a patched version of gtk2-engines-oxygen to the repo that won't crash Pale Moon or Fossa Mail, for those that use it.
