Happy Holidays, @Nic007,

Firefox is the browser of Seamonkey. Seamonkey is everything of browser, web editor, email, etc of intems relating to normal internet use. FF was split off (mail too) into separate package and releases as such. I remember that the author of SeaMonkey was a BIG part of the Mozilla team and continues to be (I believe). Like BarryK, that author does lead with some excellent ideas in SeaMonkey's all inclusive packaging.

Hope this is helpful

Firefox is NOT the browser of Seamonkey.

Components

SeaMonkey consists of a web browser (SeaMonkey Navigator), which is a descendant of the Netscape family, an e-mail and news client program (SeaMonkey Mail & Newsgroups, which shares code with Mozilla Thunderbird), an HTML editor (SeaMonkey Composer) and an IRC client (ChatZilla).

Subject description: Portable Seamonkey.5 Can't Load XPCOM on Wary 5.5
 

Hello,
I am attempting to update Seamonkey 2.6.1 on Wary 5.5 to Seamonkey (most currrent) which today is 2.39.
I have downloaded Seamonkey-Portable.05.

I am receiving this information:

Quote:

/initrd/mnt/dev_save/seamonkey-portable-0.5/seamonkey-portable
HOME=/mnt/home/seamonkey-portable-0.5 /mnt/home/seamonkey-portable-0.5/seamonkey/seamonkey
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /initrd/mnt/dev_save/seamonkey-portable-0.5/seamonkey/libxul.so:
libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.



How do I correct in order to get Seamonkey 2.39 to run in Wary 5.5?

NOTE: I have tried and failed multiple times in downloading 2.39 tar file from Seamonkey site.
I've attempted to extract to /usr/lib.
The results are the desktop browse icon no longer activates any Seamonkey.
The only way I now can activate Seamonkey 2.6.1 is through /usr/lib/ run Seamonkey.

Machine:
Toshiba Satellite 1416-S116
RAM=512Mb
Swap=2GB
Puppy:
Wary 5.5 Kernel 2.6.32.59

Thank you for your assistance in advance.

Subject description: dbus-glib installed
 

Hello 666philb,

Thank you, I installed dbus-glib from PPM.
The results are the desktop icon now activates Seamonkey 2.6.1
Desktop icon not finding Seamonkey 2.39.


Note:
Why I am updating is that I need to put an adblocker onto Seamonkey. Adblock Plus won't work with 2.6.1. This machine is going to a tech-adverse senior who needs to see an uncluttered page.

does 2.39 run?

download 2.39 .... unzip... then just run it from within its folder

or if using the portable version just left click on it

I've been trying for days.
I download the tar file from Seamonkey site.
I extract to either /usr/lib or /tmp or /root

After each extraction the desktop icon fails to activate any Seamonkey.
None of the Seamonkey icons with the Seamonkey folder activates a Seamonkey except for /usr/lib/ 'run Seamonkey' icon that runs 2.6.1.

After the PPM installed dbus-glib then the icon for portable Seamonkey 5 in mnt home changed to a Seamonkey icon, but, it activates Seamonkey 2.6.1.

SORRY, there is an update option. I'll go try it now.
