So you tried to install a version made for Mac OSX on Linux?

You need the 64-bit version of seamonkey-2.49.5.tar.bz2 from https://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/

You just extract the tarball and run the seamonkey script, though it should not be extracted over a build of SeaMonkey that was installed by way of your Linux distro package manager.

Make sure where you put the extract folder has read/write permissions for the user so you can get updates when they work.

    :-k This guy, doesn't seem to know the difference, between a .dmg file, a .deb file and a .tar.bz2 file. Image
