Before installing Icecat, I tested same sound source with M.Firefox.

I've tried to reproduce the problem in a
devuan_jessie_1.0.0_amd64_desktop-live session with this installation

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys


echo "deb http://es.archive.trisquel.info/trisquel belenos-updates main"

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install icecat

sudo rm $RepoFile

Had to disable LibreJS to allow opening /jamendo.com/radios/ and *sound
works* for any radio there.

I just installed IceCat on a new computer with a vanilla Devuan
minimum i3wm install. IceCat works fine, except that no sound is
available. I am using Alsa for sound at this point. Please advise as
to how to get IceCat to work with Alsa. I have confirmed that my sound
card works, so I know that the problem doesn't lie there.

I am using the stand alone IceCat version 52.3.0 (64-bit), downloaded from a GNU repository. I have since I posted last, found a number of posts regarding Alsa support being taken out of Firefox (and I assume IceCat???). Here is what I did to get Alsa to work:

I added this line to my /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/devuan experimental main

then ran

apt-get update
apt-get -t experimental install apulse

Remember to comment out the repository and run apt-get update again after the fact.

As I am running i3wm as my only window manager, I just added "apulse" in front of what I already have in my config file, so it now looks like this:
bindsym $mod+b exec apulse ~/bin/icecat/icecat

Everything works fine so far...
