ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 7362
Sea-monkey Browser Package Request
Last modified: 2016-12-16 01:47:53 MSK
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.
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.
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.
