Thumbs up Duplicate directory of seamonkey in /usr/lib


Slackware 12.1, used slackpkg upgrade seamonkey and i wound up with seamonkey-2.0-i486-3_slack12.2.

I have 2 seamonkey directories in /usr/lib:
seamonkey
seamonkey-2.0
1st question: how do i get the seamonkey icon in Xfce and icewm to open seamonkey?

2nd ques: Why is there Mozilla folder seperate from firefox and seamonkey in /usr/lib?

3rd ques: What is the initiating or opening file for each browser:
firefox and seamonkey. I found that in icewm the icon appears to call mozzilla to open seamonkey?

Can someone help i am lost at this point. I think i should remove one of the seamonkey directories from /usr/lib but i will wait till someone that knows for sure can instruct me.

BTW (Can someone point me in the direction of a clear step by step on howt o setup a mirror of slackware distros on my computer?

/usr/lib/seamonkey is a symlink to /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.0.
Code:
# ls -ld /usr/lib/seamonkey*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   16 2009-11-11 14:16 /usr/lib/seamonkey -> seamonkey-1.1.18
drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 1552 2009-11-16 14:50 /usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.18

The /usr/lib/seamonkey directory is just a link to /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.0. It is there so that you (or an application) can always access the seamonkey directory without necessarily knowing the currently installed version. In other words, if you had a script that installed an extension for seamonkey, it wouldn't have to know that your actual installation is /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.x, it could just install to /usr/lib/seamonkey and work for whatever version is installed.

Many libraries and applications are setup this way. Certainly all of the Mozilla ones do.

Thank you, Ok, so this is good:
Code:
ls-ld /usr/lib/seamonkey*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2009-12-03 18:38 /usr/lib/seamonkey -> seamonkey-2.00
drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 4096 2009-11-13 22:16 /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.0
Now why won't seamonkey open up and why does icewm seamonkey icon point to /usr/lib/mozilla?

Won't open up in XFce either? Firefox is workng if that tells you anything.

/usr/lib/mozilla/ : is for plugins/ only.

So may be you can change the Icon to :
/usr/bin/seamonkey

EDIT : /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.0/seamonkey = wrong.

.. Or create a new " Icon ".

This icon should point to nothing else than /usr/bin/seamonkey
