webkit2 and copying


I have built balsa with the following configuration:

$ ./autogen.sh --with-gpgme --with-gpg-app=/usr/bin/gpg2 --with-html-widget=webkit2 --with-spell-checker=gspell --with-rubrica=yes --with-libnotify --with-canberra --enable-smime --with-gtksourceview --without-gnome --with-libsecret --with-compface

If I select text in a mail (or mail part, in multipart messages) with Content-Type: text/plain and right-click it, the menu contains an item "Copy". This item is missing for message parts with Content-Type: text/html, and copying the selected text manually by using <CTRL>+<C> does not work. However, I noticed that although I cannot copy the text to the clipboard, I still can highlight the text with the mouse and then paste the selected text via middle-click into another document.

Perhaps this issue occurs only with webkit2? According to the README file, the following options are allowed for the HTML widget:

If I remember correctly, webkit is deprecated, and is only there for backwards compatibility. Using gtkhtml4, I get the error "You enabled gtkhtml4 but it was not found." OK, let's search the available packages for gtkhtml:

# grep-available -P gtkhtml | grep ^Package
Package: libgtkhtml-4.0-common
Package: libgtkhtml-4.0-0
Package: libgtkhtml-editor-4.0-0
Package: libgtkhtml3.14-19
# apt-get install libgtkhtml-4.0-0

E: Unable to locate package libgtkhtml-4.0-0
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'libgtkhtml-4.0-0'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libgtkhtml-4.0-0'

So, now I have two questions: Does the copying issue occur only with webkit2, or is it independent of the HTML-widget used? Have I overlooked something, or why can't I install gtkhtml on Debian/Sid?

Best regards
