@figue Thanks! that helped.

@alexsv83 to change language in IceCat install xpi normally (you can click directly in the webpage) and then add a new entry in about:config

type: string
name: intl.locale.requested
value: ru  (that's your case, mine is es for spanish)

Works for me :)

Hi @figue, language packs do not work in this build. I tried installing "" and "" in "/usr/lib/icecat/browser/extensions" and in "~/.mozilla/icecat/[profile_name]/extensions", I see them in "about:addons->Languages", but the language does not change. I also tried to make your package in AUR "icecat" from sources and there "" installed from:

works and switches the language.

Hi @LinuxVieLoisir in the past I remember that all lang packages were in AUR. That packages build a specific xpi. I pushed a lot of that packages because the xpi weren't generated by GNU, but now you can install the xpi you want directly from, for instance:

or if you use latest alpha:

Why you asking this? It shouldn't be difficult to make a package yourself which download and copy your desired language to /usr/lib/icecat/browser/extensions

Hello, I contact you because I would like to know if it would be possible to put the linguistiques packages of Icecat. I'm waiting your answer. Best regards.

The desktop files try to execute icecat-launcher, which doesn't exist anymore.

$ grep Exec /usr/share/applications/icecat*desktop | cut -d: -f2
Exec=/usr/bin/icecat-launcher %u
Exec=/usr/bin/icecat-launcher -safe-mode %u
$ pacman -Ql icecat-bin | grep bin/icecat
icecat-bin /usr/bin/icecat
$ pacman -Q icecat-bin
icecat-bin 60.2.0-1

oh ok, i thought it was your own binary build of the other icecat package you also maintain, i was trying this one out first to see if i want to make the switch to using icecat as my main browser, thanks.

This package is the binary provided by upstream. Please, use "icecat" in AUR to build the package as you want.

Also, I pushed a new release with all dependencies fixed, according to namcap.

also as well, since firefox 52 they no longer enable alsa support and instead they enable pulseaudio support

ac_add_options --disable-pulseaudio --enable-alsa

somebody wrote this in the article to disable pulseaudio and enable alsa in the mozconfig, im not sure if it will work as i haven't tryed it, but please look into this if you want to enable pulseaudio or alsa in your package.
