How to install icecat on gnewsense 2.3

I tried installing icecat-17.0.1 on gnewsense 2.3 Delta-H following the instructions found here: http://www.gnewsense.org/Documentation/IceCat.

At the make step I got the following error:

make[4]: *** [MediaManager.o] Error 1

The fix is really simple! 🙂

Just open the file icecat-17.0.1/media/webrtc/trunk/src/common_types.h in an editor, got to the lines mentioned in the error and remove the commas on the last items of the enumerator list.

Example:

Lines 342-351
enum NsModes // type of Noise Suppression
{
kNsUnchanged = 0, // previously set mode
kNsDefault, // platform default
kNsConference, // conferencing default
kNsLowSuppression, // lowest suppression
kNsModerateSuppression,
kNsHighSuppression,
kNsVeryHighSuppression, // highest suppression
};
must become

enum NsModes // type of Noise Suppression
{
kNsUnchanged = 0, // previously set mode
kNsDefault, // platform default
kNsConference, // conferencing default
kNsLowSuppression, // lowest suppression
kNsModerateSuppression,
kNsHighSuppression,
kNsVeryHighSuppression // highest suppression
};


to view “like me” posts

About those annoying websites that will not allow you to view their content unless you click “like” on every article they have. Like me, you might not want to do that, because you might find out later that they do not really have the information you need, yet you already shared it.

A guide to avoid this situation (for a few sites at least, do the following for FireFox:

  1. view the source code (Ctrl+U)  of the page
  2. find something like $(‘#hide-me’).show();
  3. Type ctrl+shift+k and paste it there, then press enter
  4. Voila!

I hope it helps 🙂
