Ubuntu 12.10 is not a stable Os and it is in development phase, Harfbuzz is not available in package manager in ubuntu 12.04. below error occurs due
to this unavailable package.
download harfbuzz 0.9.9 tar and manually  build and install it. even if it is not found just export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
This will find harfbuzz.

Maybe try apt-get install epiphany-browser, and use that (plus the web inspector it includes) to debug your problem.

Got a problem where webkit does not seem not to be working for a url when everything else seems to be working including firefox/chrome/wget etc. I want to enable logging if possible and see where/what happens. The page at http://webkitgtk.org/reference/webkitgtk/stable/webkit-environment.html says I need to use enable-debug build to enable logs. Is there any alternative way to figure out where webkit is stalling or get log information from webkit?
