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: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnuzilla/2018-12/msg00008.html

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

@azx07 @lolisamurai I'm not sure if this kind of issues are related to packaging method or is an upstream issue. I've tried with Icecat compiled from source and the same happens. Please, report upstream:

@azx07 same here with https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/vimium-ff/ , no idea what could be the cause

hello, I am having problems with installing some extensions to icecat.

For instance:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-translate-toolbar-en-ru/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/first-party-isolation/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/text-contrast-for-dark-themes/

it gives the error that the extension seems to be corrupt. I also tried to instal via download and then install locally from file with the same error. The above extensions can be installed to firefox without a problem.

Here are some extension that can be added to icecat without a problem:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookie-autodelete/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/darkreader/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/decentraleyes/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/i-dont-care-about-cookies/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/keefox/

It seems to me that the problem must be icecat specific since exactly the same bug appears also on android icecat.

Could somebody confirm these bugs on their system? Anybody has an idea what could be the problem

@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 "langpack-ru@firefox.mozilla.org.xpi" and "langpack-ru@icecat.mozilla.org.xpi" 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 "langpack-ru@firefox.mozilla.org.xpi" installed from:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/

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 gnu.org, for instance:

https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/52.6.0/langpacks/

or if you use latest alpha:

https://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/60.2.0/langpacks/

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

Cheers
