Install SeaMonkey/2.29.1 Mint 17


Hi I am a newbie and I am trying to install SeaMonkey/2.29.1 onto my Mint 17 box.

I downloaded seamonkey-2.29.1.tar.bz2 then in Terminal I used this line
tar xvjf seamonkey-2.29.1.tar.bz2 which extracted the files and folders. I then tried to use the following and received the error messages included

Code:
./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

 make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

sudo make install
[sudo] password for WSW: 
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

sudo make install
[sudo] password for warren: 
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong, I have been searching around google for a couple hours and keep finding the same install method save one which gave as a suggestion to install firefox to type firefox-bin into Terminal so I typed in seamonkey-bin but received

Code:
seamonkey-bin
seamonkey-bin: command not found
Can anyone tell me what I should do to get SeaMonkey installed, thanks

Hi:

The tar.bz2 that you downloaded should of came with a "Read Me" file or a "Install" file try reading those files to find out how to install it that way. You need to be in the directory in which the Make file is in so the terminal see's it.

Look in your Software Center Seamonkey might be in there and the Software MGR will install it for you.

Try running:
Code:
sudo apt-get install seamonkey

Hope that helps:-

I tried your idea and received this error msg any ideas?

Code:
sudo apt-get install seamonkey
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package seamonkey is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'seamonkey' has no installation candidate

The package that you dowloaded isn't a source file.
chmod the file
You extract it to where you want it installed either your /home directory if you are the only user that reqires it or /opt.
If in /opt
Make the necessary links to the executable, most likely
ln -s /opt/seamonkey/seamonkey /usr/bin
Add to your menu.
Also keep in mind when there's an update you will have to manually update the same way you installed.

It sounds like your repository list may not be able to find it.
It also appears that APT (your commandline utility) doesn't know about seamonkey.

With Mint you can install .deb packages. The first link on this page for seamonkey is for a 32-bit machine. The second link is for a 64-bit machine.
Download Seamonkey form here and use the
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ubun...mozilla-build/

Use the dpkg command as "root" to install the package-
Make sure your in the directory in which the Seamonkey download is in when you run the cmd-
Code:
dpkg --install nameofpkg.deb

-:-If that doesn't work look in your Software Center for Seamonkey-:-

Aside from that you can add the repo by using the apt-add-repository cmd-
