Gnome Web issue

Web does this since yesterday’s software updates:

ouch, that doesn’t look good. Hopefully Purism will respond soon with a fix.

Ouch. But you just have to read between the lines… :roll_eyes:

This was brought up in the Matrix chat room recently. Apparently, some Debian security update overrode the PureOS build of WebKit. Purism will ship a fix hopefully soon. Until then, you can set your apt overrides to pull the PureOS version instead.

Edit: The /e/a/preferences.d here I’m assuming means /etc/apt/preferences.d

This is fixed now


To be more specific:

  • A patch for this has been released and is in our staging repos now (the test repos). In a day or two it should be available as a software update from the standard repos

There are this was an issue in webkitgtk update.

The fix should be available now
