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

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/03/firefox-52-no-sound-pulseaudio-alsa-linux

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.

@xxterry1xx forgot to change. Fixed. Thanks!

This can only open in gtk3 as it says libgtk-3.so is missing, the dependency gtk2 should be changed to gtk3.

Thanks for the package.

@Hund I don't know why you need to change those permissions, it has 755 in my computer:

figue@DESA2338> ls -l /usr/lib/icecat
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 113800 jun 26 23:58 /usr/lib/icecat/icecat

I have double checked... pacman set this permission upgrading/downgrading, or replacing icecat-bin package with icecat (compiled).

Also, any particular reason I have to make the file /usr/lib/icecat/icecat executable myself every time I update IceCat?

@figue It was already added. But I solved it by removing the whole icecat-bin folder and redoing it from scratch. I don't know why I didn't think of that before.

@Hund you should probably add Ruben Rodriguez's signature (official IceCat developer) to your keyring:

gpg --recv-key 3C76EED7D7E04784
