Newer GTK+3 with the Broadway (HTML5) backend

PPA description

This is rebuild of Gtk+ 3.8 (with broadwayd) taken from https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-desktop/+archive/ppa

This PPA is currently only available for Ubuntu 13.04.

ADDING THIS PPA TO YOUR SYSTEM
==============================

Run these commands in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:malizor/gtk-next-broadway
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install broadwayd

HOWTO
=====

As an example, here is how to run gedit in your browser.

In a terminal, run:
broadwayd

In another terminal, run:
GDK_BACKEND=broadway UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 gedit

Finally, open you Web browser and go to http://localhost:8080/

The "UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0" is only useful if you use the global-menu and/or overlay-scrollbars. You have to disable them for Broadway, otherwise the program will segfault.

Please see the "broadwayd" manpage for more information.
