Triggered a recompile for firefox-kde for the blueshell repo already. Hopefully this fixes the issue.
It will take maximally one day to update the repo. Please be patient and use an alternative browser if you really need to get work done. (Konqueror, Rekonq, QupZilla, Chromium are only a few of this alternatives)
Sadly the rebuild failed. So we have to wait for new patches to arrive to bring back kde support in firefox.
I personally recommend the usage of Chromium in the meantime. It has a good kde integration and shouldn’t have any problems with upgrading.
Thanks for clarifying and will give it a go. As earlier posts about just install the other firefox didn’t quite sink in fer me.
As down to last couple of dozen neurons and they have a tendacy to spark and mis-fire sometimes! :s
[orbmiser@Winterfell ~]$ sudo pacman -S firefox
looking for inter-conflicts...
:: firefox and firefox-kde are in conflict. Remove firefox-kde? [y/N] Y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: firefox-kde-i18n-en-us: requires firefox-kde>=33.0
Nevermind rolled back to before the upgrade to have a working system. Strange thing is before the update was running Firefox 33.0 before upgrade. So don’t understand the error message requires firefox-kde>=33.0
Going to hold off update until a fixed firefox is in the pipe. Just surprised something so critical and used mostly by all can slip thru from Stable branch? I thought this stuff was tested before release?
Not complaining so much as really surprised by a main used application not launching after an update. Thought that would have been caught or seen by someone?
Manjaro does not provide firefox-kde so they don’t check if their update breaks it over here on netrunner rolling.
Honestly speaking I would really like Mozilla taking in the kde specific patches at least for the file open dialog and file association. That would make things a lot easier for all of us.
Thanks maybe later will have to redo update now before attempting again.
Still doesn’t answer my question of When? will the fixes be in the pipeline and made available thru update?
So that these kind jumping thru hoops is unnecessary.
As don’t want to have to start keeping track of manually changing things back down the road.
And with every update manually undoing things by hand.
