Huge libcef.so in Linux standalone

Post by kaveh1000 » Tue Oct 01, 2019 12:35 am

I have been producing standalones for Linux with total size around 30MB. Suddenly this has gone up to 140MB. I found there is a file called libcef.so, around 120mb that was not there before. Any idea what this is?

I am using a Mac and LC indy 9.0.4.

I think only change I made to inclusions is OAuth which I think is not needed anyway.

That's a browser engine, needed for the Browser widget.

Oh thank you. Switched on when I was desperate to fix something. Definitely don’t need.

Especially since it doesn't work on linux anyway.

I checked in the Inclusions. I do not have Browser checked. I have HTTPD checked and if that is unchecked, libcef.so is still in the standalone. How do I get rid of it pls?

Hi folks. Do you know how I stop libcef.so from embedding itself in the standalone? I assumed it would be in the Inclusions. Browser is unchecked there and I cannot see anything else browser related. Thanks.

Hi Kaveh,

Have you selected "Select inclusions.." in the General Pane of standalone settings ?

Yes. I have selected "Select Inclusions..." and I have the following items selected for inclusion:

oAuth2 Library
JSON Library
HTTPD Library
Internet
MySQL
Database
SSL & Encryption
Answer Dialog
Ask Dialog

Well, for testing purposes, you could unchecked some of these one by one ( HTTPD, Internet, ?)
and maybe you'll find the culprit...

Another point: You're still using an old version of Livecode, do you?

I am using 9.0.4 rc3, Mac. It was working fine before.

I will do some testing but of course I do need Internet. Thanks Thierry for the help and all the offline help with sunnYrex too! Thankfully I have not had to bother you for a while as it is working nicely. ;-)

Mmm, 1 second before dying, one was fully alive :roll:
You have changed quite few things last week, building your standalone...

Sure, only to narrow down the problem...

Glad that you appreciate it.
BTW, a new powerful function is on his way for sunnYrex...

Hi all

I removed:

oAuth2 Library
HTTPD Library

and it is now working correctly without including libcef.so. fingers crossed it will stay that way.
