Description daz 2016-09-20 12:37:48 MSD
I would like to request if possible that SeaMonkey 2.40 Linux GTK2, English (38 MB)be made available in the ROSA packages. 

If not could you please advise on how hook up a Seamonkey icon to KDE Panel to launch the browser. 

Seamonkey describes in the following how to hook up SeaMonkey complete with icon to the GNOME Panel and XFCE panel. If I unsure how this might happen in ROSA KDE.

SeaMonkey states:

Linux Installation Instructions

There is no installer available, but just extracting the tar.bz2 to the default directory (usually /usr/local/seamonkey) achieves the same result as an installer would.

To install SeaMonkey by downloading the tar.bz2 file:

    Create a directory named "seamonkey2" (mkdir seamonkey2) and change to that directory (cd seamonkey2).
    Click the link on the site you're downloading SeaMonkey from to download the package (seamonkey-2.*.tar.bz2) file into the seamonkey2 directory.
    Decompress the file with the following command:

    tar jxvf seamonkey-2.*.tar.bz2
    This creates a "seamonkey" directory under your seamonkey2 directory.
    Change to the seamonkey directory (cd seamonkey).
    Run SeaMonkey with the following command:


To hook up SeaMonkey complete with icon to the GNOME Panel, follow these steps:

    Click the GNOME Main Menu button, open the Panel menu, and then open the Add to Panel submenu and choose Launcher.
    Right-click the icon for SeaMonkey on the Panel and enter the following command:

    where directory_name is the name of the directory you extracted SeaMonkey into. For example, the default directory that SeaMonkey suggests is /usr/local/seamonkey so the full command would be /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey.
    Type in a name for the icon, and type in a comment if you wish.
    Click the icon button and type in the following as the icon's location:

    where, again, directory_name is the directory where you installed SeaMonkey. For example, using the default directory /usr/local/seamonkey results in an icon location of /usr/local/seamonkey/chrome/icons/default/default.png.

The procedure is quite similar in the Xfce environment:

    Right-click the Applications Menu button, open the Panel menu, then choose Add New Items.
    Select Launcher and click Add, then close the Add New Items dialog.
    Right-click the new launcher (the one with no icon at the far right of the panel), then select Properties to open the Launcher dialog.
    Click the document icon with tool-tip "Add a new empty item" and fill in the Name and Command fields in the Create Launcher dialog.
    Name: SeaMonkey
    Command: directory_name/seamonkey (e.g. /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey)
    Click the "No icon" button and navigate to directory_name/chrome/icons/default/default.png. Press OK, then Create, then Close.


Thanks !
