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).

Feb 3, 2011

I'm building a slackpackage for TeamSpeak3, i got everything to build and link correctly, but the problem i'm having to me seems rather minor, but it is annoying, i can't get the description when i install it using pkgtool to show up, even tho i do have a slack-desc in the install folder of the pkg itself, and i believe it to be properly formatted.any suggestions as to why it wont show up?i've attached the slackbuild and slack-desc to see if i'm missing a step.

Slackware :: Samba Clinet Not Working Right In KDE4 And Slack 13.1?

Jun 1, 2010

needed was working either out of the box or with the addition of a few slackbuilds from Slackbuilds.orgOne or two problems which I will make separate posts for :Problem with the samba client - my home server has a large samba share on it that I need to access from teh laptop that is running 13.1. If I type smb:/ into the dolphin or konqueror address bar, I get to see the network and the servers. I even see the shared folder on the server. However, on trying to open this folder I get : Quote:The process for the smb://<my-server-name> protocol died suddenlyI know that the server is serving OK, because from the command line I can do a

mount.cifs //<same-server-name>/<folder-name> /<somewhere-on-my-filesystem>
command and I can browse the shared folder from that <somewhere-on-my-filesystem> either at the command line

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 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 :: 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 ....

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
error: opera-11.00-1156.i386.rpm: not an rpm package (or package manifest)

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

Slackware :: Slack Won't Go To Sleep

May 2, 2011

When I try to put slackware to sleep or have it hibernate the system simply sits with a black screen. Normally it would do this for a short period of time immediately before the actual sleep state (screen powered off, croissant light on) is entered, but currently it does it indefinitely. My sleep USED to work just fine, it broke after some unclean shutdown or another, basically I just want to know what I can try resetting to try to get it back to normal.

Slackware64 13.1, running on thinkpad X61.

EDIT: Of course the second I make the post I think of trying to sleep/hibernate from the command line instead of through X/GDM (Gnome SlackBuild). That works.

Slackware :: Upgrading Slack From 13.1 To 13.37?

May 2, 2011

I have some doubts about the official Pat's upgrading procedure. In the UPGRADE.TXT file, one of the stepts says:

upgradepkg --install-new *.t?z What does --install-new mean? Pkgs I have no installed on my 13.1 will be installed on the 13.37 upgrade? For example, I did not installed KDE on 13.1. Will be installed when upgrade? - What about third party pkgs? Slacky,, compiled by myself. Should I remove them before upgrading slack?

Slackware :: Armed Slack On Tonidoplug?

Mar 21, 2011

Has anyone here succeeded in getting armed slack running on a consumer kirkwood device .ie. one without serial console? I have a tonido plug that I want to liberate. By default the plug boots first from the external usb, so I would only need to set up / on the first partition. I would be very interested to know if someone had managed to install slack to the internal nand without bricking it.

Slackware :: Creative Zen Not Recognized In Slack 13?

Mar 18, 2010

my problem, I have Slackware 13 dual booted with vista on a dell 1545 2 ghz 2gig ram. to these forums I have gotten everything working except my creative zen vision M 30g. I have tried alll the suggestions posted here and other places on the net. Here is my output from lsusb.

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 046d:c018 Logitech, Inc. Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


any way i can transfer files back and forth to this would be great since it does not work in vista either. and I am pretty sure 99.9% that I have all the libmtp, libnjb, and whatever other libs are needed installed but in gnomad it says no devices found on USB hub. I hope this is enough info and someone out there has the trick or maybe I am missing something obvious.
