The Pale Moon Web Browser-original GTK+ 2 builds

Edit Package palemoon

This repository now used for GTK 2 builds, which all my older builds were. Now that GTK 3 is an option, those builds are in a separate repository.

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:stevenpusser:palemoon-GTK3/palemoon

In any case, to add this repository and its apt key, click on the "download package" link on the upper right of this page, then:

Click on what version of Linux you are using is compatible with (as Linux Mint is compatible with various Ubuntu releases, and Mint's Debian Edition with Debian releases)

To add the repo and its key, click on "Add repository and install manually" link

Then cut and paste the directions for your particular distro's release into a terminal. Take care to use the directions for your release, since it's easy to mistakenly copy and paste the set above or below the correct ones--you can read what you've just pasted into the terminal to make sure it matches what you are running.

Note that if you add both repos, the GTK 3 version will be seen as an upgrade over the GTK 2.

ubuntu 18.04 x64 build was failed, is it possible to fix?


Steven Pusser's avatar

If it fails with the new 32.0.0 release, I'll try and build that version with a different gcc.

Debian testing and unstable have removed python2, so I don't know how I'll get native builds there.


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

seems like yes, its also failed :( so please if its possible, take a look into it. 18.04 is still continue to be reasonable choice for person who liked old ubuntu look-and-feel with classical gnome-panel, in 20.04 indicator applet was broken already



Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

any updates? Sorry for annoying but I hope many new fixes should be available on new Palemoon I want to see


Steven Pusser's avatar

I tried, but the OBS errors out with some kind of gcc-8 version mismatch:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/home:stevenpusser/palemoon-bionic-amd64-gcc-8

Let me see if I can at least build a Bionic version on my own laptop and put that deb up for download.


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

I see manual deb build was successful at least :) Thanks a lot!


Steven Pusser's avatar

The OBS doesn't allow me to upload finished debs, so I did figure out how to get the Bionic amd64 version to build with gcc-8.


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

so we will have routine working again then, right?


Steven Pusser's avatar

Yes, I'm sending up the sources for the 32.0.1 Bionic amd64 version soon. I've managed to get all the other different configurations for enabling and disabling build-flags and jxl into one source file for all the other distro releases, but haven't figured out how to tell it to install gcc-8 for the build instead of the standard gcc when it sees bionic amd64...


Steven Pusser's avatar

I figured out how to have it all in one source file after I uploaded the new sources, but I'll wait until the next PM update. It's a bit clunky, as it may install gcc-8 if present and that may never get used on other distreleases, but shouldn't affect the finished debs. It's a kludge that a real Debian packager would work around with control.in files that generate a final control file depending on the distrelease.

18.04 builds are still broken it seems :(


Steven Pusser's avatar
  • Packaging improvements to merge all sources back into one:
    • Just build-depend on python2.7 now that it's in my bookworm and Sid repos.
    • Bump minimum gcc version to 8, since the only one with 7 is Ubuntu 18.04, soon EOL, and Bionic amd64 builds need gcc-8 anyway.

Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

Thanks a lot for your long time work for this project. In our dark times these little good things really making people a bit happier indeed :) And as result, Palemoon is now back in track and much more real important sites are functional again.


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

:) you know my message, right?


Steven Pusser's avatar

Yes, thank you for the kind words.

I am also helping with MX Linux, being one of the original guys that started it up, and am the lead packager for it.


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

but 18.04 build was failed again :(


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

any chance to fix my favorite 18.04 builds? ;)



Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

if its a real problem I'll switch to manual building then, just need to know


Steven Pusser's avatar

I'll take a look at that amd64 Bionic problem tomorrow, since the automatic switching for gcc-8 still doesn't work, and 32.2.0 is out now.

It probably needs it's own source packages forcing gcc-8 without jxl being enabled.


Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

still breaking on every new build



Aliaksandr Dzeshchanka's avatar

this time I see no gtk3 build for 20.04 either :( ah, they are all excluded now. Something bad happened?
