Iceweasel 2.0 is available in Sid


Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061024 Iceweasel/2.0 (Debian-2.0+dfsg-1)

Doing a dist-upgrade pulls it in.

Some people have said Y others N, it seems to work fine either way. Although I said N and I had to fix the plugins.

Others have had to set the Java path, I just copied the plugins from /usr/lib/mozilla to /usr/lib/iceweasel.

Long live Iceweasel. One of the good things about the name change is that Debian now gets money from people doing Google searches rather than Mozilla.

Oh yeah if you get gpg key error do:
gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 6070D3A1 && apt-key add /root/.gnupg/pubring.gpg

Seems some of the mirrors are slow adding it.

It was on ftp.us.debian.org around 5pm

Once I fixed the extensions that didn't want to work with 2.0 all was well.

It's just not yet available for the 64 bit arch.

Same delay for icedove. Funny thing is the name change will probably spike my curiousity enought to actually install it.

Still not available in the AMD64 repos this morning. Finally had to boot up the 32-bit so I could have a look. Handled my bookmarks, extensions, and plugins flawlessly. Went to the Ubuntu page with the proposed icons and picked one I liked. Looking good.

I've upgraded, so far no problems although I think I liked FFX 1.5 better than FFX 2.

Seems Iceweasel isn't picking up the Java plugin for some people, the easy way to fix this is:

java hotfix: ln -fs /etc/alternatives/firefox-javaplugin.so /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/libjavaplugin.so

I will never understand why people using Sid use aptitude, apt-get dist-upgrade tends to handle things much better.

I think it makes more sense to use aptitude with Sid because it handles uninstalling much better, and it gives you options regarding how to handle an update that is likely to break something.

I run a mixture of Etch/Sid, I only do dist-upgrades from Etch, but I always keep an eye on what's new in Sid. Just can't wait to try the good stuff. I do not use the ncurses interface ... don't understand it. I simply substitute aptitude at the command line for apt-get and everything works. The archival information saved by aptitude is more complete than apt-get ... thus better handling of the "removal" process whan something goes wrong.

OTOH, I think it's a bad idea to mix apt-get (or synaptic) with aptitude. Stick to one or the other. One tip for people who want to switch to aptitude ... 1st step is "# aptitude keep-all" ... Otherwise it'll be trying to delete half your system.

I just upgraded to Iceweasel and it didn't pick up my codec plugins. The java fix worked as stated.

Any suggestions on fixing them?

Thanks.

See my first post. Basically I just copied the plugins from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins

Since all the plugins on the mozilla directory are just symlinks, it worked perfectly.
