can't run epiphany after building it from source

Asked by Ben Asselstine on 2009-03-29

I'm trying to modify epiphany to include a feature that I want it to have.

I've tried 2 ways to build it after I've made my changes:

Try 1:
$ apt-get source epiphany-browser
$ sudo apt-get build-dep epiphany-browser
$ cd epiphan*
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install
$ /usr/local/bin/epiphany

I get an error saying that mozilla could not be started at this time.

Try 2:
$ apt-get source epiphany-browser
$ sudo apt-get build-dep epiphany-browser
$ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b

And I get a build error.

Can someone tell me the right way to build epiphany after i've made my own changes to the source?

Thanks!

I'm doing this on intrepid.

what is the error you get when your run epiphany from terminal? and what is your changes to the sourcecode.

Ahh, my mistake was doing a `configure' after an `autogen.sh'.
