Howto: Native Seamonkey-installer • 1.1 on Ubuntu

Filed under: Kubuntu, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 12:54 pm

Download Seamonkey from here:

Unpack it in nautilus: right-click, extract here…Now continue in console….

tuxi[~]$ cd /path/to/seamonkey-installer/
tuxi[~]$ sudo ./seamonkey-installer

Run the installer….

Make Seamonkey run without having to key in the path (one liner):

tuxi[~]$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey /usr/local/bin/

Download a Seamonkey Icon and set it up (one liner):

tuxi[~]$ sudo cp /path/to/seamonkey64.png /usr/share/pixmaps/

Set up seamonkey in your menu with alacarte:

tuxi[~]$ alacarte

Set it up in Internet > New item > Name: Seamonkey, Command: seamonkey, Click the no icon button and select the seamonkey icon.

Setting up the plugins (one liner):

tuxi[~]$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/* /usr/local/seamonkey/plugins/

I had to symbolical link java-plugin separately to make java work in Seamonkey, so if java does not work:
Depending on your version of java, in my case it was (one liner):

tuxi[~]$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun- /usr/local/seamonkey/plugins/

That should be about it 🙂

Not happy with seamonkey and wish to remove it ?

tuxi[~]$ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/seamonkey/
tuxi[~]$ sudo rm /usr/local/bin/seamonkey

  1. Hi,
    Very useful – I couldn’t get java running.
    A comment/question, instead of

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-
    why not
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/

    So that minor upgrades use the latest version?
