I've made some checks and lowered "security.sandbox.content.level" to 1 (default is 4). Perhaps a bit better approach, instead of disabling completely sandbox.

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

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

Hi figue, guys:

I just discovered the opensuse patch that integrates so well firefox to kde.
Do you know if is there any possibility to use it with Icecat too? I was to try that out but I think best thing was to ask you and ask for advice aswell.
Thank you for packaging Icecat for all of us!

Ok, we can remove it. Then we could put an advice in the post-installation script: "New version of the privacy extension avaliable here http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/3.6.13/privacy_ext.xpi"

By the way, doesn't gnu publish checksums anywhere? For their tarballs?

jackoneill commented on 2010-12-14 08:38

Yes! I have an idea: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/304633/

In short, we don't include it in the package.
Also, I removed pkg-config because it's in the base-devel group, replaced a couple hard tabs with spaces, and added a "package()" function.
^_^

I have a little problem with v3.6.13. IceCat put a extension in /usr/lib/icecat-3.6/extensions/privacy_ext.xpi, so in every start IceCat prompt to install it. For now, the only way to fix it is to remove it manually after first restart.

I'd could show a message in post installation script... Anybody have a better idea? Thanks

It's true. Fixed! (same pkgrel)

Umm, in the source tarball, why are these files executable?
icecat.desktop
icecat.install
icecat-safe.desktop
xulrunner-copy-stub.patch
