Unless you are very specific and detailed in what you do, we can not help.
You do what?
You see what?


Statements like "Always lead to failure with the same message Unable to ... " tells us nothing about what you are actually doing.

Step by step, what you do and what you see, at each step, is the only way we are going to know if you are doing it correctly.

Subject description: I'm out of shape
 

I put my 201 lbs (which should be 192 if I was in shape) up against my 15 lb. computer and I won.

I just kept setting permissions on directories to everybody can break in and it started to allow me to save stuff.

So at least I'm making progress.

As for the update to 2.48 or whatever, i'll look into that. It's funny - I don't know why my browser is 2.39 after untarring a 2.49 version. ??

PSS - Log in via browser and configure Gmail by enabling the POP feature of your choice.

Then follow their instructions and configure Seamonkey @ the same time.

Between this and the note I pm'd, you shouldn't have much trouble.

PostPosted: Sun 25 Mar 2018, 15:59    Post subject: As I said above, things are working
Subject description: Just curious why my application.ini says version 2.49
 

And when I type seamonkey -v I get version 2.39. I guess it goes off my path? Some final install I haven't yet done. Now that I have a seamonkey directory of the 2.49 tar, the one of 02-05-2018 build vintage, ie. 52.6.1, I should soon see version 2.49. It might not matter much which I use. I can use Google Chrome for web-browsing, sometimes use Seamonkey, and sometimes Mozilla. The IMAP mail seems to download mail now know matter what. Since I lightened security. I'll keep trying to upgrade things and see if I can tighten the security and still have it work. In the meantime, I can back up my emails.

PostPosted: Sun 25 Mar 2018, 16:12    Post subject: Install directions for Seamonkey 2.49.x
Subject description: Create a directory seamonkey2
 

Then copy the tar file to that directory and untar it as follows:

tar jsxvf seamonkey-2.49.2.tar.bz2

Then change to the seamonkey directory and type ./seamonkey.

When I do this, it says sh ./seamonkey no such file or directory.

So I type just seamonkey and I'm right back into version 2.39 again.

So I guess I need to solve the problem that it can't find seamonkey in that directory - I'll check permissions now.

I don't know why I can't issue the command ./seamonkey.

I followed the instructions - could it be a bad binary file? 32-bit? I'm clueless. I will just have to run with version 2.39. I have no idea what the problem is and I'm tired of dealing with it.

How are you running seamonkey mail?
Is it seamonkey-spot -mail
or
seamonkey -mail?

When running the spot version you will get a lot of permission denied messages as it's trying to protect you.
Your profies are also in different locations when running with spot or without.
I HATE spot. It's always the first thing I change in /etc/defaultprograms.

What's the latest build when you do this?

If it's not 2.49.2, toss the pkg you've got --it's the wrong arch. You need this pkg.

Dwnld and unpack, then run your little ./seamonkey routine.

Subject description: The package you linked for me won't run
 

I would have to install libgtk3. On this fatdog machine when I want libgtk stuff, I just use libgtk2. If there is an easy way to install libgtk3 it should ans must coinicide with gtk2 because I have a lot of apps that only use libgtk2.

That should run the seamonkey browser as user root. To run the email client you need to run it like this:
./seamonkey -mail

It's usually easy - I might try it - I've installed 3 on other machines. I'll try I guess.

./seamonkey -mail


I can also just run the mail client from my menu.

Subject description: I just went to ./configure gtk+-3.10.9
 

It doesn't have the package atk-bridge-2.0. I knew there was some reason I had a bunch of gtk+3.10.x tars but I'm still running only with gtk+2.0. There's stuff I don't have on this particular Fatdog machine. that I have on other Linux machines.
