Missing extensions in epiphany-extensions
Last modified: 2011-04-06 18:33:03 EDT
Description of problem:
The epiphany-extensions package in Fedora 13 is not build with all the extensions provided by the source archive.
The ones available with the Fedora packages are the following : actions adblock auto-reload auto-scroller certificates extensions-manager-ui html5tube push-scroller soup-fly tab-groups tab-key-tab-navigate tab-states
All those available in the sources: actions adblock auto-reload auto-scroller certificates extensions-manager-ui gestures greasemonkey html5tube permissions push-scroller rss sample soup-fly tab-groups tab-key-tab-navigate tab-states
Version of epiphany-extensions: epiphany-extensions-2.30.1-2.fc13.i386
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install epiphany-extensions
2. Launch Epiphany and display the available extensions in Tools → Extensions
Some extensions missing, like Greasemonkey
The missing extensions quoted above shoud be available
In previous versions of Fedora, the package was build with this option to %configure:
whereas the F13 version is compiled with:

Same issue with Fedora 14...
To precise my first comment, the ./configure option "--with-extensions=all" doesn't enable all extensions as it could be believed. Indeed, according to configure.ac, calling this option enables the extensions defined in the USEFUL_EXTENSION variable (line 174), and only them:
USEFUL_EXTENSIONS="actions adblock auto-reload auto-scroller certificates extensions-manager-ui html5tube java-console page-info push-scroller select-stylesheet smart-bookmarks soup-fly tab-groups tab-key-tab-navigate tab-states"
Whereas by default, all the extensions in the DEFAULT_EXTENSIONS variable are activated (line 175):
DEFAULT_EXTENSIONS="actions adblock auto-reload auto-scroller certificates extensions-manager-ui greasemonkey gestures html5tube push-scroller soup-fly tab-groups tab-key-tab-navigate tab-states rss"
As you can see, some extensions are missing in USEFUL_EXTENSIONS, compared to DEFAULT_EXTENSIONS.
The --with-extensions=really-all enables all the extensions in both USEFUL_EXTENSIONS and DEFAULT_EXTENSIONS, plus some extensions rather useful, especially for Web devs: error-viewer livehttpheaders permissions rss sample.
Hope this helps...

(in fact, error-viewer and livehttpheaders were legacies of the Gecko era for Epiphany and are never enabled whatever the option).
