Hi @Selfes, the other package I maintain was updated with the sources provided by Antonio Trande that maintain official Fedora package. It's not really official and is not a prerelease.

For this package, usually I wait until official binary is out, but you are free to try prereleases or betas if they are available, and then report back.

@figue hello, I noticed that icecat is updated to 68.2. Since the icecat package in the AUR is already updated, but according to the mailing list that version is (probably) a preview (, I would like to know if this this package is getting updated to the preview version or if you will wait until the final version is published.

@aluizioneto you have to trust in Ruben's gpg key. Just execute this in a shell:

gpg --recv-keys D7BEFC2F89D03EFC

I'm having the issue bellow:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... icecat-60.7.0.en-US.gnulinux-x86_64.tar.bz2 ... FAILED (unknown public key D7BEFC2F89D03EFC) ==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

Read Jezza's comment but didn't quite understand what is going on. Can someone help me to clear this? GPG is not able to verify the signatures and Jezza is suggesting changing them on the PKGBUILD, right? Is that a safe procedure? What would be a reliable source for the correct keys?

Re Ruben Rodriguez' key verification: In the PKGBUILD, insert his other key: 'gpg --recv-keys D7E04784' (or find it in Enigmail), check that you got the right one, and then replace the validpgpkeys line of the PKGBUILD with the fingerprint: validpgpkeys=(A57369A8BABC2542B5A0368C3C76EED7D7E04784) # Ruben Rodriguez (GNU IceCat releases key) That worked for me.

Binary packages of IceCat are not released yet. Please be patient.

What about *.xpi themes? Can't use the method provided by @lolisamurai.

lolisamurai commented on 2019-01-13 20:46

it appears to be a problem specific to icecat on extensions without an id in their manifest:

current workaround is to extract the xpi and repack it with a manifest id
