Hello Linux Geeksters, As you may know, Midori is a lightweight web browser with full HTML5 and CSS3 support, used by default on the XFCE4 desktop environment and on Elementary OS systems.
The latest version available is Midori 0.5.9, which has been released a while ago, coming with improvements. Among others, the dead code has been removed from the browser, the “Add Bookmark” entry has been added to the menu, it now restores the last viewed tab before the browser was closed, a bunch of memory leaks have been corrected and the SpeedDial, Toolbar and Bookmark bar context menu items have been enhanced.
In this article I will show you how to install Midori 0.5.9 on Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Elemnetary OS 0.3 Freya, Pinguy OS 14.04, LXLE 14.04, Peppermint Five, Linux Lite 2.0, Deepin 2014 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Midori 0.5.9 on Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the midori package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:midori/midori-dev
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install midori
Optional, to remove midori, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove midori
