I was finally inspired by the SMPlayer developer to try and figure out how this worked, so I regenerated the source files of the MX 15 build, created an account at the openSUSE build service, created the Pale Moon Package there, uploaded the sources, and the builds automatically started. I specified just those releases for building, and just the 32 and 64 bit x86 builds, but there are many other distros (SUSE, Fedora, Debian, etc) and CPU architectures available. It also automatically set up the repositories and their keys.
To install from this repo, follow these instructions:
Ubuntu-- replace the XXXX in the following commands with your release, such as 18.04
Code: Select all
sudo sh -c "echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/xUbuntu_XXXX/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:stevenpusser.list"
rm -f Release.key && wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_XXXX/Release.key -O Release.key
sudo apt-key add - < Release.key && rm Release.key && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install palemoon
Debian: replace XXX with your release...Testing, 9.0, or 8.0. Note: Debian may not have sudo enabled.
Code: Select all
su -c 'echo 'deb http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser/Debian_XXX/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/home:stevenpusser.list'
rm -f Release.key && wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/Debian_XXX/Release.key -O Release.key
su -c 'apt-key add - < Release.key && rm Release.key'
su -c 'apt-get update'
su -c 'apt-get install palemoon'

Edit: Note that all commands in the instructions must be run as sysadmin, either as root or with sudo.
As I write this, the last build is finishing up for the 32-bit 15.10 package.
This seems pretty cool to me!
Edit: The Debian 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 repos have some gstreamer-1.0 packages to enable the build of Pale Moon 26.2+, as well as gstreamer1.0-libav, but the end user may want to get the libav and plugin packages for HTML 5 media playback from wheezy-backports and the 12.04 PPA.
All the repos now contain a patched gtk2-engines-oxygen that "knows" about PM and Fossa Mail, and won't make them crash when that theme is used.
