Sugar can accidentally import WebKit1.0 (GTK2)

Reported by: SAMdroid Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: Unspecified
Severity: Blocker Keywords: patch
Cc: ignacio Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


On Fedora 23 Beta 1 XFCE and sugar build MODE_NONE:

Sugar fails to start because it imports WebKit, which in turn imports Gtk2. This is because it importing WebKit1.0, not WebKit3.0.

gi warns us that we need to specify which version we want, so we need to add the following before the first import:

gi.require_version('WebKit', '3.0')

Irc log:

16:08 <ignacio> gi.RepositoryError: Requiring namespace 'Gtk' version '2.0', but '3.0' is already loaded
16:08 <ignacio> wuut
16:08 <samdroid> shell.log?
16:08 <samdroid> what that an error?
16:08 <ignacio> samdroid,
16:08 <ignacio>
16:09 <samdroid> oh webkit
16:09 <samdroid> so we need to move to webkit2?
16:10 <ignacio> maybe?
16:10 <samdroid> ignacio: do the errors go away if you sed -i 's/WebKit/WebKit2' -r src
16:10 <samdroid> or something like that?
16:10 <ignacio> lemme check
16:11 <samdroid> and wtf why does this happen on fc23 and not on rawhide
16:11 <ignacio> maybe this is important: I'm not using Gnome
16:11 <ignacio> XFCE Spin
16:11 <samdroid> ah
16:11 <ignacio> the command doesnt work
16:12 <samdroid> try
16:12 <samdroid> find sugar/src -type f | xargs sed -i 's/WebKit/WebKit2/'
16:14 <ignacio> samdroid, works
16:15 <ignacio> Browse activity doesnt start
16:15 <samdroid> so webkit1 included with the XFCE spin is GTK2
16:15 <samdroid> wait, maybe we should use the gi version thing
16:15 <samdroid> brb
16:16 <ignacio> reproduced your toolbar bug btw
16:16 <samdroid> :)
16:17 <samdroid> just wondering, what is the WARNING output of running the following python statement on your machine?
16:17 <samdroid> from gi.repository import WebKit
16:17 <ignacio> >>> from gi.repository import WebKit
16:17 <ignacio> __main__:1: PyGIWarning: WebKit was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('WebKit', '1.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
16:17 <ignacio> >>>
16:18 <ignacio> the background of journal is grey
16:18 <ignacio> same with listview :P
16:20 <samdroid> ignacio: that would be the webkit bug
16:20 <samdroid> WebKit1,Gtk2=1.0  WebKit1,Gtk3=3.0
16:20 <samdroid> I'll log a ticket
