    One day, when I can install seamonkey, I will probably become a Linux Mint user. I got excited when I read your how to,,,,,,, but I am not a Linux user so it does not make sense. Why is Linux so angry at installing some programs while others just slide straight in? Please, any chance of step by step instructions for people who don’t know what $ echo -e “deb http means and why do I have to call a Repo man?
    Please help;
    Mint wannabe

      just open a terminal (ctrl+shift+t), paste each command in the terminal (without the $ sign) and hit enter!!

  4. Since a few days I’m using Linux Mint version Rosa, because of speed problems of Windows 8.1 on a 5-years old computer.

    Within some hours all my applications were working well, except SeaMonkey.
    Thanks to those 4 magnificent commands SeaMonkey was installed quickly and I can use the WYSIWYG-composer. I don’t need the other stuff right now.

    Great

    Hi Group
    I hope this method will work with Linux Mint 17.3.

    I did find a SeaMonkey 2.48 DEB.
