Description

(on x86_64) most of the menu items and the URL entry textbox are disabled grey - i could not open any URL and the program keeps running after the GUI shuts down - had to kill

$ konqueror

passing a URL on the command line does load the page; but as raw text instead of rendering as HTML

And likely another casualty of qt-webengine

Was looking into this. noticed it had not been built since March and from bugs like #2117 I knew there were updated KDE things.

But, Latest Konqueror is 18.12.0 (current libre version is 17.12.3)
and from the 18.12.0 PKGBUILD we have.... (wait for it)

depends=(dolphin keditbookmarks qt5-webengine kdelibs4support khtml)

So looks like this one goes bye-bye because it now falls into the related to #1167 pile

oh, the irony - just FYI, my understanding of this is that webkit was originally forked from konqueror, then chromium used that as the basis for their new browser, then qt-webengine was extracted from the chromium sources, then qt-webengine somehow became the de-facto web library , and now konqueror uses qt5-webengine - unfortunately, this library accumulated some barnacles along its journey; and here we are, blacklisting konqueror (if is the core web rendering engine then this program is probably useless without it) - all because of this trend to favor the new "modern" thing rather than maintaining webkit properly

i will add though, that the 'konqueror' package description states: "without ... nonfree qt5-webengine support"; so something must have been done to address that already

where did you see a PKGBUILD for 'konqueror' v18.12.0 ? - 'konqueror' is already in [libre] for this reason; so the only way 'qt-webengine' would be in the deps array is if a parabola dev added it; which would entirely negate it being re-built in the first place
except for the privacy concerns

I was comparing the PKGBUILD pulled from ASP against the current to check for updates (knowing that KDE just updated)
It was late So I missed the 'without qt-webengine' part in the libre one (I assumed there had been other issues since it seems to be based on dolphin) . I'll try rebuilding it first updated, it that fails then as is.

Sigh looks like a bunch of other KDE packages need to be rebuilt first (kio, kdevelop?) as tyring to build it either way (as is/updated) throws:

Sadly I do not have time for all that Today.. I'll add it to my mental list and give it a go if the package maintainers don't beat me too it
