DOCUMENT

Most of the Puppy has the SeaMonkey built-in. But you may want up-to-date or want to install its localized version. Your pupsave is used for the new installation. Anyway, the cash and the downloading internet files may consume your pupsave.

The Portable SeaMonkey holds the SeaMonkey code, its settings, cache and downloads in the same 'seamonkey-portable' folder, so that they are free from the 'Puppy space' and not limited by the pupsave size.

If you have multiple Puppies installed on your PC, you can run the Portable SeaMonkey with the same bookmarks and settings.

Tested on Precise-571JP. May works with most of Puppy 5.x. Some Puppy need dbus and dbus-glib to run seamonkey official build.

Thank you for testing.
What is your locale and what language did you selected?
What is the result when typing 'echo $LANG'.

Works fine.Thanks.
One last question Shinobar.
Most of my programs are placed on a locked SDHC.
I prefer that so nothing can be written.
If i do my settings on Seamonkey and set cashe on /root/.cashe
without changing anythink else can i place it on that card too and lock it ?
Will that reflect on speed of Seamonkey ?

No, you cannot. The Seamonkey requires its config directory writable.

Hello, shinobar.

Have you tested this one for speed? I ask because a lot of people, including BK, think
SeaMonkey has become a slowpoke.

IMO, the fastest recent SeaMonkey is the one in dejan555's dpup-4.86. Why?
Because it's located in /lib, not /usr/lib, and not outside the puppy sfs, like in /mnt/home.

Maybe it's just me (however I doubt it since I did speed tests with an updated spm2
[originally by aragon]), but this is what I observed:

the further away a program is from /, the slower it gets. It doesn't really matter with a
single smallish file, but if you have a big program dependent on various support libraries
and utilities to do its job (such as SeaMonkey), the milli-seconds spent going back and
forth from the main calling program to its support utilities on disk, and back, add up and
are noticeable by the user, they do count in the end.


Just a thought.

Best regards, and of course congratulations on all that you've done and that you're
still doing for the Puppy.

BFN

Hello Shinobar:

The browser is working fine but I'm not sure about the menu entries working properly. In that regard, the menu items do not launch the HTML Editor or mail. Is there a way to launch via terminal for this?

Best,

Slavvo67

Have you registered the seamonkey-portable? See the DOCUMENT

V. Using on another Puppy
To register on the new Puppy, right click the seamonkey-portable folder and select 'Register on the Puppy' if you want to. Or click the executable 'Register' in the folder.

Then, type 'seamonkey-portable -edit' or 'seamonkey -mail' on a terminal.

Just as I was about to download your portable Seamonkey, I realized that it is probably not applicable to me. Sad Sad

I boot Puppy from a CD, so have a large savefile on the hard drive. (Large, because I saw no option but to keep inflating it each time puppy complained that there was not much room left, yet I'm not installing anything extra or saving movies. )

So there is no benefit to me in this case? BUT, would portable Seamonkey install and run okay if I did try to install it?

Excuses, excuses: I have been merrily using a particular Puppy for a couple of years, updating only Firefox from time to time, so I've become a bit vague on the finer details of puppy linux. Embarassed Mind you, I'm a staunch advocate of this snappy little distro at any speaking opportunity that presents itself! Very Happy

Shinobar:

I can confirm that I registered Seamonkey (0.4) on my Puppy (Fluxbox) and I have received "dead" menu entries. The applications do work in terminal.

I reviewed the .desktop entries under usr/share/applications and I believe that I have identified the issue.

Under the Desktop Entry the entries on the 3rd line down have:

Name=seamonkey (portable) Composer HTML Editor

The (portable) is causing some type of issue. The parenthesis maybe? I removed the "(portable)" from both the HTML editor .desktop file and the Mail .desktop file and now they are working properly. The same with the Seamonkey browser Menu Entry. I'm not sure about the 4th menu entry.

I do not know if this is only a Fluxpup issue or not. Fluxpup has a wbar up on top that might be causing the issue.

Any thoughts on this? Note: The Firefox portable has a similar issue. The Menu entry reads exactly as: firefox(portable with the "(" in the middle.

The portable Chrome did not have this issue and created a working Menu entry.

I would also like to thank you for these interesting portable packages. They are pretty amazing.

Best,

Slavvo67
