SeaMonkey on Ubuntu 14.04

This is not an expert article.
The goal of this article is to share my experiences related to problems and challenges I have had on my computer environment. I hope it can help people who are struggling with the same issues.

In the past I had some experience with SeaMonkey as a “What You See is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) HTML editor. SeaMonkey made it quite easy for me to set up a webpage and to make little html changes to fine tune the page in the way that I liked.

Currently I’m working with a Ubuntu 14.04 system and wanted to use SeaMonkey on this system. SeaMonkey is not included in the Ubuntu Software enter, so it must be installed in another way.

From  the SeaMonkey Website the Ubuntu version can be downloaded and the instructions for unpacking are described. However, after installation I tried to start SeaMonkey from terminal using the command ./seamonkey. This resulted in the following error message:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/ole/bin/seamonkey2/seamonkey/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

Apparently additional libraries had to be installed, which I did not known how to do. Therefore I decided to abort this installation and to search for alternative ways for installation. I found the following link:

This page describes how to install SeaMonkey 2.25 on Ubuntu 14.04 from terminal. For installation the following commands have to performed from terminal:

 $ echo -e "deb all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null
$ sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver C1289A29
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install seamonkey-mozilla-build

This resulted in a complete installation of SeaMonkey.
