I got the icecat-52.3.0-gnu1.tar.bz2 file from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/52.3.0/, then followed the directions in the readme as follows:

tar xvjf ~/Downloads/icecat-52.3.0-gnu1.tar.bz2

mkdir /opt/icecat

cd /opt/icecat

Everything worked fine, until this step:

~/icecat-52.3.0/configure --with-l10n-base=~/icecat-52.3.0/l10n

Which spits out:

ERROR: Invalid value --with-l10n-base, ~/icecat-52.3.0/l10n doesn't exist

So I checked the ~/icecat-52.3.0/l10n file, and it does exist, so I have no idea what could be causing this. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Ok so I did /home/jimmy/icecat-52.3.0/configure --with-l10n-base=/home/jimmy/icecat-52.3.0/l10n, now I get ERROR: The pkg-config script could not be found. Make sure it is in your path, or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full path to pkg-config. – Jimmy Dec 27 '17 at 1:51
  • Install the pkg-config package and try again. – Ferenc Wágner Dec 27 '17 at 10:41
