@Terrorizer patch process can take a long time, depending on your machine capacity.

Good news is that IceCat was added to Chaotic repo recently:

@mazzarino, Chaotic AUR.

Это работает до первой перезагрузки. Icecat меню не перевелены.

После перезагрузки.. Мне нужно вручную удалить расширение


This works to the first reboot. The icecat menu is not translated.

After the reboot.. I have to manually delete the extension

@username13 А откуда брали langpack? Существующие официальные языковые пакеты были разработаны для версии 60.7.0_gnu1,и они не совместимы с 78.3.0gnu1


Where did you get the langpack? The existing official language packs were developed for version 60.7.0_gnu1 and they are not compatible with 78.3.0gnu1

@figue, I'm using a Russian language. After I install the langpack-ru in this browser and then reboot ...

There is such a message:

Ошибка синтаксического анализа XML: неопределённая сущность

Адрес: chrome://browser/content/browser.XHTML

Строка 2473, символ 9:

<label id="fxa-menu-service-label


And the approximate translation:

syntaxic analysis error: Not a certain essence


Row 2473, symbol 9:

then I delete the Langpack-ru

@figue, when i wanna use this language-file i get an error when icecat newly starts !!! ... another question: why starts icecat not in fullscreen; everytime it starts not in fullscreen and i must double-click on the icecat border, to make it fullscreen >>> is there a trick i don't know >>> every other browser starts everytime in fullscreen ???

For language you can install the xpi from Mozilla:

There is a directory with all of them in every new ESR release. There was a script some time ago that patch xpi to remove all "Mozilla stuff" from those xpi files, but I'm not sure if really was only a cosmetic process or a process to redistribute them as GNUzilla (sorry if I'm wrong with this).

@figue >>> awesome >>> icecat installation in seconds !!! ... can you also tell me where i can get a german language file for icecat, in the icecat setting i can't add a new language >>> there comes an error ???

@Terrorizer if you add Chaotic repo, you will avoid to build IceCat, like the rest of prebuilt packages. There is no other advantage.

@figue ... is there an advantage for icecat to use this new "Chaotic Repo" ??? And how can i solve this: when i wanna install icecat and it runs several hours, i don't sit before my computer the whole time, in the past often i came too late and there was an output like password overtime ???

@mazzarino I have the same issue as you. I tried running an older version of rust per the bug report that you attached but that didn't change anything.

Have you had any luck finding a fix?
