Angelfish

Web browser intended for Plasma Mobile, which also runs almost flawlessly under phosh. It is mobile-first and based on qtwebengine/blink.

Scale to fit:

App ID:

Has to be filled

automatic-app-scaling

This is not required with angelfish.

Tips and Tricks

By default, there are some rendering issues with some websites appearing completely black. Some environment variables taken from the PostmarketOS Wiki fix these issues.

You can add them to angelfish's application launcher for ease of use. Note, that they have to be re-applied, whenever you re-compile angelfish.

Save following text as org.kde.mobile.angelfish.desktop (you can use nano, Gedit or any other text-editor for this).

Then move the file to /usr/local/share/applications/:

sudo mv org.kde.mobile.angelfish.desktop /usr/local/share/applications/org.kde.mobile.angelfish.desktop 

Alternatively you might want to change the Exec line in /usr/share/applications/org.kde.mobile.angelfish.desktop directly.
