I recently had occasion to set up a Linux - Debian - machine (for work,
to be sure). I'm having trouble finding a Web browser I can stand to
One of the ones I tried was netsurf (via apt-get install, installing
netsurf-common and netsurf-gtk - the About window says "NetSurf 3.10
(24th May 2020)"). As I have, unfortunately, come to expect from
almost everything, it defaulted to reverse video. The notable part is
that I was unable to find any way to change that; most of the browsers
I've run into on Linux have had some way to configure colours, usually
including a way to tell it "use these colours no matter what the page
tries to set". With netsurf, though, I couldn't find even the former,
much less the latter.
Did I just miss something, or is netsurf not capable of being told what
colours to use?
Thanks to your info I managed to build a "nsfb" program file and I can
run it. But it immediatly exits with an error message:
Unable to open display
Error initialising wayland connection
Unable to initialise framebuffer
I run it from text terminal, not from X. I wonder why it tries to open
a display (that seems to be X!) and why it tries to init a Wayland
Any chance to get it to work on text console framebuffer? Maybe I need
to install FB support in the kernel?
