Compile Vimprobable on FreeBSD 10.1
Vimprobable is an awesome browser with vim-like keybindings
Vimprobable is a lean web browser optimised for full keyboard control. It has vim-like keybindings.
Vimprobable is being developped on Linux but it can be compiled on FreeBSD too.
This is how I compiled it on FreeBSD 10.1.
First we have to install the dependencies:
pkg install libsoup webkit-gtk2 gmake
Get the code
The code can be downloaded from sourceforge.
Fix an error in /usr/include/sys/file.h
Unfortenately the compile will break on an unknown type error in /usr/include/sys/file.h. The type u_int is unknown. This should be fixed by including /usr/include/sys/types.h but this did not work.
I added the following line in the top of the file, just below the copyright block.
typedef unsigned int u_int
After this, compiling vimprobable works like a charm.
Unpack the tarball that was downloaded from Sourceforge and run gmake inside this directory.
That is it :)
Don't forget to create a directory .config/vimprobable in your home directory.
Enjoy surfing with this awesome browser!
