Slackware :: Getting Profiles To Work With The Newer Seamonkey?

Mar 2, 2010

getting profiles to work with the newer seamonkey? I found that after the initial upgrade from 1.1.18 to 2.0.0 user profiles weren't migrated/imported, so I backed the upgrade out.

Now with 2.0.3 and a bunch of new vulnerabilities I re-installed and still can't get a profile migration.. I resorted to giving up on the idea all together, but even when I erased ~/.mozilla I still can't get any profiles to work with 2.0.x at all.

Any attempt to start up a second instance with a new profile (-P) brings up the same profile already in use in the first instance, and switching profiles via "profile manager" from a running seamonkey will close the previously open profile to open the next one ....

Ubuntu :: Updated Seamonkey Wiped Out All Of Profiles And Bookmarks

Sep 19, 2010

My 8.04 update contained a new Seamonkey browser that wiped out all of my old profiles and bookmarks. Is there any way that I can find them on my computer now or are they wiped out forever?

Slackware :: Chatzilla Add-on In Seamonkey In Slackware-current?

Mar 22, 2011

This is not an earth-shattering issue, but, something I've recently noticed with the Chatzilla add-on for Seamonkey in Slackware-current. Maybe it is just my problem.If I add Chatzilla to FF 4.0 everything works as expected, that is, when I launch Chatzilla the default start-up window shows up with a list of IRC servers to click on (freenode being my favourite).

However,when I click on Chatzilla in Seamonkey I get a blank window that shows up, there is no server list. I noticed that the window in Chatzilla went blank for Seamonkey recently after a -current update (maybe a library issue?)

Slackware :: Browser Only Rebuild Of SeaMonkey?

Jun 18, 2011

I'm currently trying to rebuild the Seamonkey package so as to have only the browser, and not all the remaining cruft like Mail, News, Composer and Dishwasher. I remember having done this for a few years - Netscape also allowed to do that - and it went well. Basically, all you had to do was to replace the --enable-application=suite option by something like --enable-application=browser, and then disable the other apps explicitly with some option like --disable-calendar, --disable-mailnews, --disable-composer, if I remember correctly.

I've tried to rebuild the Seamonkey source with a modified SlackBuild, but to no avail. ./configure --help shows me some options in that direction, but I have yet to find out some magic combination to get it to work. --enable-application=APP doesn't seem to know the browser-only option anymore, and defining various --disable-mailnews and --disable-calendar options results in compilation errors.

Slackware :: SeaMonkey 2 Not Working On Slack 12.2

Dec 24, 2009

I am having problems getting Seamonkey 2 and to run on Slackware 12.2. I have tried the packages for 12.2 in patches/packages/ and the package from the seamonkey website, both with identical results. Seamonkey appears to start, and does appear in the process list, however no windows appear and it uses little memory and no CPU cycles. No messages appear in the console if I start it from there. I have to kill the processes (seamonkey , run-mozilla and seamonkey-bin). I have tried removing my Seamonkey profile, with the same results.

If I try to build the slackbuild I get this error:
checking for cairo >= 1.8.8 freetype2 fontconfig... Requested 'cairo >= 1.8.8' but version of cairo is 1.6.4
configure: error: Library requirements (cairo >= 1.8.8 freetype2 fontconfig) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
configure: error: ./configure failed for mozilla
/usr/bin/gmake -C mozilla default
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/comm-1.9.1/mozilla'
gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target `default'. Stop.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/comm-1.9.1/mozilla'
make: *** [default] Error 2

The version of Cairo I am running is the standard Slackware 12.2 version cairo-1.6.4-i486-1.tgz, which to my knowledge, has never been updated (there is nothing in /patches/packages for it, anyway).

Slackware :: SeaMonkey Not Starting - Cannot Run Without Arguments

Apr 25, 2010

I ran installpkg on seamonkey 2.0.4, on Slackware 13.0, and it appeared to install OK. I can run /usr/bin/seamonkey -version and I get the 2.0.4 version number. However, when I run it without arguments, no windows get opened, and there are no errors that I have located (eg messages, syslog). This is probably something real obvious, but I'm drawing a blank. BTW, firefox runs OK.

Slackware :: Personalized SeaMonkey - Sharing Few Tricks

Aug 10, 2010

I have spent the last few days setting up SeaMonkey and I've finally got it just the way I like it, and I thought I might share a few tricks I found scattered around the net.

Add-ons: Ad-block (self explanatory)
No-script (self explanatory)
Mouse Gestures (set up similar to Opera's mouse gestures)
Compact Menu - Free up screen real estate with a single menu button.
Lightning v1.0b1 - Calender Extension. (Version 1.0b2 doesn't support SM)
Theme- Using Mostly Crystal
Tricks- Home Button Hack - Add a improvised home button
Speed Dial Hack - Create your own Speed-Dial functionality
I also found it helpful to set the location bar to NOT append www. or .com to text entered into the search bar. (Preferences -> Location Bar -> Untick)

Not sure if this is terribly helpful to anyone but SeaMonkey now behaves (IMHO) a lot nicer and looks great. [PhotoBucket]

Slackware :: Seamonkey Security Update In -stable?

Oct 26, 2010

I applied the security updates from October 20th, which included Firefox and Thunderbird, but I did not see one for Seamonkey. Since then, Seamonkey is warning me that there's an update available for it too -- as usually happens when Firefox is updated.Is there an update to Seamonkey that's available for -stable? Did I miss it somehow?

Slackware :: Slackpkg Will Not Update SeaMonkey Solibs

Sep 28, 2010

I am running Slackware-12.2 and try to keep my box up to date with slackpkg. The last few security update from seamonkey shows two files that need to be updated:


If I look what is installed, only one package:
# ls -la /var/log/packages/seamonkey*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 68356 2010-09-28 22:33 /var/log/packages/seamonkey-2.0.8-i486-1_slack12.2

I looked back in all the slackware-security mails I have received and seamonkey-solibs seems to be added with seamonkey-2.0.4, for which the security mail was send on April-5. I don't see a recommendation to install seamonkey-solibs, and slackpkg will not update this packed, because it is not installed. I also had a look at the following page to find some clues: [URL]

Slackware :: RPM Requires Full SeaMonkey Package Install

Dec 19, 2010

There is a "standalone seamonkey-solibs package for RPM, gxine, etc". But after recent upgrades in -current, I can't use rpm without full seamonkey package installed. Can someone revise the contents of seamonkey-solibs and add missing files to it?

$ LANG=C rpm -qp --qf %{NAME} opera-11.00-1156.i386.rpm
error: opera-11.00-1156.i386.rpm: Header SHA1 digest: BAD

And `rpm2txz -nd opera-11.00-1156.i386.rpm` doesn't work as expected without seamonkey package installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Enigmail Doesn't Work With SeaMonkey?

May 19, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on a laptop for my parents. They use SeaMonkey with Enigmail for their e-mail. They complained that they couldn't read their e-mail.

I did apt-get install enigmail.
Here are the versions that are installed:
enigmail 2:0.95.7-1ubuntu2
seamonkey 1.1.17+nobinonly-0ubuntu1

Unfortunately, enigmail didn't show up in SeaMonkey. I looked at the files it installed. It looks like it only points Thunderbird at enigmail, but not SeaMonkey.

How do I get enigmail to work with SeaMonkey? Is there another package I can install? Or do I have to manually move around the files?

Slackware :: Newer Kernels And The Need For Initrd?

Apr 3, 2011

I've always booted Slackware with an initrd until recently. With my new installation of Slack Current (13.37), I didn't bother to create an initrd because of the constantly updating/transient nature of the current branch at the moment.My question is this: when 13.37 does go final in a few days, should I go back to my normal practice of booting with an initrd? Also, I think I understand how the initial ramdisk works, but is it really needed with the more modern kernels?

Slackware :: Tends To Move A Bit More Slowly Than Other Distributions To Adopt Newer Features (like GRUB)

Mar 17, 2011

I'm writing a story for LWN on Slackware 13.37 this week. I'd like to hear from current Slackware users: How are you using it, and why you're using it? What appeals to you about Slackware Linux instead of Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Debian, etc.? Slackware tends to move a bit more slowly than other distributions to adopt newer features (like, say, GRUB) -- is this a pro or con for you? How long have you been running Slackware?

Any other thoughts about Slackware? If you respond, indicate in the post how you'd like to be attributed if I use your response in the story. (e.g., sign your name or indicate that I should use your forum username, etc.)

Hardware :: Logitech Quickcam Does Not Work With Newer Linux Kernels?

Oct 26, 2010

I have a rather old webcam, a Logitech quickcam messenger. This webcam was working fine with older linux kernel version, I think < 2.6.27. The gspca driver that makes this peripheral working has been merged into kernel sources, and I think that my webcam stopped working with this merge. I am a Slackware user, and until version 12.2 my webcam was working (I manually compiled and installed drivers). If I well remember, with version 13.0 (kernel 2.6.29) the video was full of strange artifacts, and with Slackware 13.1 (kernel 2.6.33) the webcam does not work at all. I am performing these tests with skype, that had videocalls fully working before gspca was merged into the kernel tree, while now I can only make phone calls.

This are the informations given by dmesg:

usb 3-3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 6
usb 3-3: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=08da
usb 3-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0
gspca: probing 046d:08da

Slackware :: Installing Newer Software From Source When Older Version Installed From A Slackbuild

Jan 4, 2011

I have HandBrake 0.9.4 installed from, but a new version came out yesterday that I want to install, but it isn't up on slackbuilds yet. Can I install it from source without doing anything to the old install?

When I installed it from slackbuilds, the slackbuild script also installed all the external multimedia libraries that I need. If I use removepkg (or whatever the command is) to remove the old HandBrake before installing the new one, will that also remove the multimedia packages that were installed along with handbrake? They were all built into the same .tgz

On my work computer so I can't do anything with it right now anyway, so maybe a slackbuild will be up when I get home.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Newer NVidia Drivers Won't Work With Asus Laptop

May 10, 2010

There are currently two options for nVidia drivers in Lucid Lynx, 173, and current. With the video card in my laptop, 9650m GT, the 173 drivers work but Docky is painfully, unusably slow. With the "current" drivers, Docky is fine but I get progressively worse and worse static-type lines across my screen and eventually it the machine restarts itself. I've tried installing drivers manually but they won't compile against the kernel.

Before installing Lucid, I had 9.04 Jaunty installed, and Docky (at the time still merged with gnome-do) worked without a hitch. I ran into this error first when I installed 9.10 and decided to go back to 9.04, hoping that it would be fixed. I can't remember which version of the nVidia drivers I was using in Jaunty, but is there any way to go back to those drivers in Lucid?

Slackware :: Alienware Aurora & Slackware 13 - Will It Work?

Jan 12, 2010

I recently ordered the Alienware Aurora from Dell and upgraded the video card to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 295 as I noticed that Nvidia offers a 32-bit driver for download.

Then I noticed that the system comes with Windows 7 64-bit so I am assuming that this is a 64-bit system.

My bottom line question is will I have to install Slackware 13 (64 bit) or will I have to stick with the 32-bit version since the Nvidia driver is compiled for 32-bit? This is a gaming machine so obviously I want to be able to realize the full potential of the video card.

If I have a choice, what are the pros and cons? I DO NOT want Windows so I'll be disappointed if I can't install Linux!

Below is my order list from Dell:

General :: Any DEB Downloads Of SeaMonkey Available?

Aug 27, 2009

Are there any .DEB downloads of Seamonkey out there? All I can find (at the site) are the source and the installer (as a gzip). I couldn't get it to install using the installer (even with the instructions in the readme), and I'd like to avoid compiling from source, because this is for a college course and I don't feel like I have time to worry about compiling.

(The course calls for an HTML editor, and Seamonkey is one of the suggested programs with an HTML editor.) Since I couldn't get the Linux version of Seamonkey to install from its installer (I think the error message was something about being unable to open a screen), the only solution I knew was to run Windows XP in Virtualbox and download/install/run the Windows version of Seamonkey from there.

OpenSUSE :: Java Missing In SeaMonkey ?

Jun 28, 2011

I just updated Java and when I checked in my plugins for SeaMonkey, Java is not listed, not even IcedTea. When I looked at FireFox's plugins, the only Java listed was IcedTea.

How can I get SeaMonkey to know that Java is installed? I looked for the 32 bit Java from within YaST but saw none, just the 64 bit.

Anyway, these are the java's installed:

I'm running SuSE 11.4 and my browser of choice is SeaMonkey 2.0.14.

This is a list of my ~/.mozilla/plugins folder:

Debian :: YouTube Videos And Seamonkey Without Flash

Jul 22, 2015

WRT "no flash youtube video"? OS is debian wheezy with iceweasel 31.80. I have completely removed adobe flash (I think). I have installed the html5 video everywhere addon, and have allowed youtube to set cookies. However, when I go to youtube and attempt to play a vid, noscript prompts me to allow scripting. I am somewhat reluctant to use any google services, and am puzzled that youtube, which proclaims html5 as default (now), would need the googlevideo service? Note that I have removed flash because of its past insecurities. I guess the real question: "Does youtube (or iceweasel) really support html5?
