I debut on the blog publishing a simple tutorial to update Iceweasel en Debian Wheezy. It may happen to us that, for various reasons, we want to update Iceweasel to the latest versions (And even more so with the rate of updates that Mozilla is taking). This is possible in many different ways. However I am going to show you one that I did not know and is maintained by Debian Mozilla Team. If, on the contrary, you want to replace Iceweasel by Firefox I refer you to the guide de elav.
Let's go to it then:
- First, we add a file inside /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ called (it can have whatever name you want, but with the extension .list ) iceweasel.list. We can also edit directly on / Etc / apt / sources.list. In my case, I usually do it with the editor dwarf:
$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iceweasel.list
- Once inside nano, we copy the following in the file:
deb http://cdn.debian.net/debian experimental main
- We save the file and exit. Now, we have to update with apt-get:
$ sudo apt-get update
- And finally replace our Iceweasel by version release (currently 20):
$ sudo apt-get install -t experimental iceweasel
With all this, we can now enjoy the latest version of Iceweasel.
Finally, if the update gives us any key failure, just install the key from the repository of the following link:
This process can be carried out in different distributions of Debian (Lenny, Squeeze, Wheezy and unstable) and for different versions of Iceweasel. I therefore refer to the official website of the Debian Mozilla Team for consultation, as well as the source of all this information:
I hope it is useful for you! Greetings to the community!
