But where would 2.46 be hiding?

We unpacked it to /usr/lib/seamonkey
Code:
rm -rf /usr/lib/seamonkey && tar jxvf seamonkey-2.46.tar.bz2 -C /usr/lib
Is it there? Can you run the ./seamonkey command in the terminal from that directory? If it works, move that directory to /opt and follow the steps in the portable thread.

in /usr/lib/seamonkey I found the 2.19, the old original Seamonkey from Upup Raring, it was still functional, but not updating, I deleted that already.
I have no idea where the 2.46 went to.

OK, delete /usr/lib/seamonkey and let's do it once again ... let's make it portable, that is Smile

1) Right-click in the directory where you saved the downloaded Seamonkey > window > terminal here and run this command
Code:
rm -rf /opt/seamonkey && tar jxvf seamonkey-2.46.tar.bz2 -C /opt
We are unpacking Seamonkey to /opt.

2) Once the unpacking process is complete, run this command from the same terminal:
Code:
cd /opt/seamonkey
and
Code:
./seamonkey
We are trying to start Seamonkey from the terminal - does it work?

edit - It should.

Thanks anikin!
Now i have a working and updating Seamonkey in Upup Raring Very Happy
I can open it through ./opt, but maybe I can make a shortcut or access it through the menu? Because the menu entrance now for Seamonkey are dead links to the old version.

bruno,

It didn't work for you, because one little step had been left out in my post: change to the seamonkey directory. I edited it to read:
Code:
cd /opt/seamonkey
and then
Code:
./seamonkey

Yes you are right, I had first change to ./opt

Can I now just leave it like it is?
And always start it from ./opt/seamonkey and click on the Seamonkey with the gearwheel icon?
Because I'm afraid if I start to copy things and move files around, I will mess it up and then I have to start all over again. Crying or Very sad

Of course, you can leave it that way, but that will be an unfinished job. All that's needed now is to copy 3 little files to your Puppy and you will not even touch your /opt/seamonkey directory.

1) Download this <sm.tar.gz> archive
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=936274#936274
- it's a file structure with those 3 little files. Right-click on it and remove the fake .gz extention, so that it becomes sm.tar (We can't post archive files here on this forum, that's why this fake .gz). Now unpack the archive: In a Rox window where you saved <sm.tar.gz> right-click > menu > window > terminal here and run
Code:
tar xvf sm.tar
you will see something like this
Code:
root@debian:/tmp# tar xvf sm.tar
seamonkey_2.40/
seamonkey_2.40/usr/
seamonkey_2.40/usr/bin/
seamonkey_2.40/usr/bin/seamonkey
seamonkey_2.40/usr/share/
seamonkey_2.40/usr/share/applications/
seamonkey_2.40/usr/share/applications/seamonkey-mozillabinaries.desktop
seamonkey_2.40/usr/share/pixmaps/
seamonkey_2.40/usr/share/pixmaps/seamonkey-mozillabinaries.xpm
seamonkey_2.40/opt/
seamonkey_2.40/opt/seamonkey/
root@debian:/tmp#
2) Open the unpacked seamonkey_2.40 directory, go to /usr/bin, there's a file there (a symlink) - copy it to /usr/bin in your Puppy.

3) Go to /usr/share/applications and copy <seamonkey-mozillabinaries.desktop> file to /usr/share/applications in your Puppy.

4) Go to /usr/share/pixmaps and copy <seamonkey-mozillabinaries.xpm> to /usr/share/pixmaps in your Puppy.

Now for the sake of convenience, let's create a desktop icon: go to /usr/share/applications and drag/copy the <seamonkey-mozillabinaries.desktop> file to the desktop. Right-click on it, select edit and delete that long and ugly name, or edit it to your taste - and that's it. You can now start Seamonkey by clicking on a nice looking desktop icon.

Anikin:

I hope this works for RU Xerus64, as well. Been trying to update Seamonkey for the next release.

If I'm posting this in the wrong forum, let me know. Smile

Can anyone tell me why after upgrading to SeaMonkey v2.46, I can no longer use the system UI font for menus and and dialog boxes? I was using a Helvetica font, but not it uses a plain Sans Serif font. I can't change it to Helvetica.

Meanwhile, all other applications, including the new Pale Moon I installed, use Helvetica as the system UI font.

Any help would be tremendous.
Smile

Sorry that I waited a few days, but i had to collect all my courage Very Happy
