The problem is that the packagebuild tries to symlink these to the standard archlinux locations of the programms.
You can just comment the lines in PKGBUILD out and check whether it works then

I have problem update it with conflicted files when install
files conflict:
ice-ssb: /usr/bin/chromium-browser already exist
ice-ssb: /usr/bin/google-chrome already exist

Where could be problem

@thunderstorm9905 i think we just made the same bugreport :D

Sounds great @benneti. Asking them for tagging is much appreciated.

@thunderstorm9905 thanks for your effort, i will change the source but not to master (i think this should be in a *-git package), as soon as a new tagged version is on github and i recognize it, i will update the pkgbuild, i hope this is ok for you?
You can use the master version and change the version to 5.1.5 pkgrel 0 so you will get the new "official" version as soon as it is out, we can also ask them to tag all releases (i think they are already at version 5.1.8 but they are not tagged), so what do you think?

@benneti i am not sure on whether this is a bug in ice or just something one has to do by hand but i tried it again with chrome and Firefox and it doesn't create the folder for me. if someone else can test this, it would be great to know what happens. I guess i would take GitHub as a source.

EDIT: i read through the code of ice and it seems to be a bug in ice.
it doesn't create the directory, i will try to propose a fix to the original developer so he can fix this.

EDIT2: there is more to this story
this is an issue which has already been fixed in master branch but the author didn't yet package up a new version. we can however use the binary from master branch. Just use this binary:

Thank you for your input @thunderstorm9905.
I just tried it (using firefox as a browser) the first time i launched and created a desktop symbol it had no symbol(as you described), but it created the ~/.local/share/ice folder so when i relaunched it, it worked.
So i think this is a bug in ice itself and not a problem in the pkgbuild or?
Another point is, should github be used as source since it is now on github?

thunderstorm9905 commented on 2016-03-05 16:56

@benneti just move your ~/.local/share/ice folder to another place and launch ice from a terminal. It'll put out an errormessage that says that the folder is missing (when you try to use a favicon on a newly created ice-app)

they did not have github when i created the pkdbuild, i will change this, thank you.
For me it does work with fav-icons (without this line), and i am not sure wether it is right or not to create a directory in home within a pkgbuild
