How to install GNU IceCat tarballs

To install a generic prebuild binaries tarball package just unpack it in a folder (which is usually already defined decompressing the file itself) and copy or move it (also renaming it if necessary) in a suitable position, usually into your /home directory or in the /opt system directory. Might also be necessary to change the permissions of the directory and/or the contained files (see the instructions which usually come with the package).

I suggest this way to install the GNU IceCat prebuild binaries tarball packages provided by this website:

prepare the system

  • update your system (this is not strictly necessary, but it is better before removing or installing software):

    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get upgrade
    
  • if you are updating a previous version already installed in /opt/icecat, then it is better to rename this folder before to install the new package:

    $ sudo mv /opt/icecat /opt/icecat-old
    

    so that you might eventually delete it later (be very careful using the rm command!):

    $ sudo rm -R /opt/icecat-old
    

download and install

(notice: below you should substitute x.y.z with the actual version number of the tarball package to install)

  • download the wanted GNU IceCat x.y.z tarball package from the GNU IceCat downloads page of this site
  • rename the downloaded package to fix the file extension (this is need as, due to bugs in WP, the file extensions of the tarballs have been changed from ‘.tar.gz’ to ‘tar_.gz’):

    $ mv icecat-x.y.z.tar_.gz icecat-x.y.z.tar.gz
    
  • unpack it (you will have a icecat-x.y.z folder):

    $ tar -jxvf icecat-x.y.z.tar.gz
    
  • move the icecat-x.y.z folder to the /opt system directory, renaming it at the same time to icecat:

    $ sudo mv icecat-x.y.z /opt/icecat
    
  • now you can finally run IceCat:

    $ /opt/icecat/icecat
    

Enjoy!

The fSimpleX 3.0 template I was using is available at the fSimpleX downloads page of this site.

    • full length column background colours
    • no images
    • no JavaScript
    • resizable text compatible

SlimGnewsense (a SLiM theme for gNewSense)

I have developed SlimGnewsense a quite simple and light SLiM theme for gNewSense (a fully free GNU/Linux distribution).

Image: slim-gnewsense-1.1 screenshot.

SLiM (Simple Login Manager) is a desktop-independent graphical login manager for X. It aims to be light and simple, although completely configurable through themes and an option file; is suitable for machines with low hardware resources and/or machines on which remote login functionalities are not needed.

The SlimGnewsense 1.1 theme is available at the SlimGnewSense downloads page of this site.

The SlimGnewsense theme consists of:

  • a configuration file (config.theme), released under the GNU GPLv3 license;
  • a background image (background.png) with the gNewSense logo, released under the CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported license;
  • a panel (login) image (panel.png), released under the CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported license.

To install the SlimGnewsense 1.1 theme:

  • download the compressed theme file and unpack it (you will have a slim-gnewsense-1.1 folder):

    $ wget href="http://bitfreedom.noblogs.org/files/2010/08/slim-gnewsense-1.1.tar.bz2
    $ tar -jxvf slim-gnewsense-1.1.tar.bz2
    
  • move the theme folder to the SLiM’s themes folder:

    $ sudo mv slim-gnewsense-1.1  /usr/share/slim/themes
    
  • edit the SLiM configuration file (/etc/slim.conf) the way to set the current-theme option row to:
    current-theme slim-gnewsense-1.1

Enjoy!
