IceCats ppa for gNS Hardy is no longer available!

Download simply the source code, from

trio of ./configure, make, make install, (see info files) and have fun

What is this trio of ...? I mean, I've never installed a programm on gNS manually. I always used the console by typing apt-get install ... or used the aptitude. I realy don't know where to place the program and what EXACTLY need to do. Would you take some time to explaine me slowly step by step, please?

Thanks, and I realy want to understand it better

- and privacy_ext¹ (I recommend)
- and langpacks¹ if necessary

¹After installation: Start icecat once - briefly - with admin
privileges. Done.

See for more info.

If this procedure is successful, please send a short feedback. (You
might want to bring the wiki up to date?)
