@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?

Hund commented on 2016-06-28 16:00

@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

What to do?

@ilya-fedin sorry I haven't see your last comment.

Currently I'm not interested in maintain a gtk2 package, but taking a look into firefox-gtk2 in AUR, it seems that you only need to add "ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk2" to mozconfig in order to build a gtk2 package. I can do this for you if you need it and you can't/don't know how to do it, but please consider the chance to make it yourself. It's not complicated :)

figue, the matter is that I want to come completely to IceCat (to use the favourite browser one, and to use his modification from GNU - even better :)), but I don't love GTK3, and Firefox on him. My question was in whether you will make a icecat-gtk2/icecat-gtk2-bin package in case of transition of IceCat to GTK3, as well as Firefox? Or can be at you there is information that someone another will make such package?

Hi ilya-fedin,

IceCat uses an independent folder for storing profiles, so you can have both installed at the same time. In fact, I'm usually working with both running.

This package (icecat-bin) comes from GNUzilla official binary compilation, so if you want more details about the schedule you should ask upstream.

As far as I know, IceCat follows Firefox ESR releases, so I don't see any inconvenient to have GTK3. If you want a pure GTK2 release you should build/make a package yourself, in base of icecat package in AUR[1] (which I maintain too).

Feel free to post there if you are interested in make your own package with GTK3/2 exclusive.

Hello, figue! I want to change firefox-gtk2-bin for icecat-bin, but I have several questions:
1) Whether icecat will migrate to gtk3?
2) And if is whether there will be gtk2/gtk2-bin version in aur?
Thanks in advance.
