Why? In Ubuntu all you do is download, open Nautilus, double-click the file, extract to your home folder, create a Applications link to the ~/home/seamonkey/seamonkey shell file and run. Or from a terminal: $ ~/home/seamonkey/ $ ./seamonkey or follow the install instructions: http://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/2.0/install-and-uninstall <http://www.seamonkey-project.org/doc/2.0/install-and-uninstall#install_linux> > > I run Ubuntu Linux 8.04LTS, Debian 5 Linux, See above. and Windows XP with service > packs (I believe that I have SP3, in addition to SP2, which I do know > was installed, but I am not definite about SP3), although the Win XP > should probably now be replaced with Win 7, so I think it is probably > best, for stability, to wait until if and when Seamonkey 2 (or, even > better, from the reporting of the problems, version 2.1, with all the > bugs of version 2, fixed) makes it into the package repositories for the > Linux distributions.
