PostPosted: Tue 09 Nov 2010, 20:47    Post subject:  GNU IceCat 17.0.1-i686_en-US
Subject description: web browser package
 

IceCat is essentially a slightly altered (for trademark and licensing reasons) version of the Firefox web browser.
http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/

Maybe I'm peculiar, but I prefer IceCat over Firefox.

[vicmz reports that IceCat 13.0.1 works with Wary 5.3, provided you install a few other dependencies. To do that, please see the link below concerning additional languages- all the relevant materials are in one place.]

(This package has the American (US) English language pack built-in. If you would like to install another dictionary/language pack, try using the extensions and how-to provided courtesy of vicmz, here. Let me know whether those do or do not work, please.)

icecat-17.0.1-i686_en-US.pet (25.16 MB)

Ummmm ... you gave me an idea. It's smaller than Seamonkey (2 MB difference in the case of the Seamonkey by dejan555).

Maybe I could replace Seamonkey with Debian's IceWeasel ... yummy Wink

PostPosted: Wed 08 Aug 2012, 14:20    Post subject: Language packs for Firefox and IceCat  

I'm saving some language packs for Firefox/IceCat here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/a2n6emd3t3olh0x/Hjy8Bod_ta

This is convenient because not everyone can compile separate versions for their languages, or the person who maintains the packages doesn't have enough time to do so. This is also convenient because at times updates for Puppy Linux aren't done as soon as a new version of the browser is released, and sometimes these langpacks disappear or are blocked for other browsers.

NOTE ON FIREFOX/ICECAT LANGUAGE PACKS: To easily activate the installed language pack, install the locale_switcher extension (available in the same folder link I've posted). Then select Tools > Language, choose your language and restart Firefox. Once this is done, you can remove the locale_switcher extension.

I could successfully use your IceCat .pet in Wary 5.3. I have uploaded a how-to text file and the required dependencies along with the langpacks:

UPDATED to version 14.0.1

@vicmz: I've linked your resources in the main post, as well as on my website's IceCat page. I hope that's okay, and thanks for the support and additional work you've put in to this!
