issues with webkit and linux mint

Hello, Linux mint works with chrome and firefox but I have issues with webkit. The only error displayed is [Error: browser.newPage: Target page, context or browser has been closed]

I checked the browser in the cache and I can see 2 folders in webkit-1967, minibrowser-gtk and minibrowser-wpe. Only the gtk minibrowser works. The other one has issues with Wayland:

** (MiniBrowser:362757): WARNING **: 15:42:03.844: WaylandEGLConnection: Could not connect to Wayland Display

** (MiniBrowser:362757): WARNING **: 15:42:03.844: WindowViewBackend: No Wayland EGL connection available

** (MiniBrowser:362757): WARNING **: 15:42:03.844: Failed to create WPE view backend

Package version: "@playwright/test": "=1.41.2",

Downloaded webkit version:

Would someone have some ideas how to debug this? Thanks!

This thread is trying to answer question "How can one debug issues with Webkit on Linux Mint when encountering an error stating that the browser, page, context, or browser has been closed, and there are Wayland display connection problems?"

BEWARE: your OS is not officially supported by Playwright You could try npx playwright install-deps which might work.

Thanks for the quick response! But I already installed all deps and they are with the latest versions
