<p><strong>To avoid incompatibility problem with previous versions, the
SeaMonkey installer will prompt you to delete the install directory if it is not
empty. Answer NO if you put your profile or other personal files in the install
directory, otherwise the files will be deleted. Users who put profiles in the
default location are not affected.</strong></p>

<h1><a name="linux"></a><span class="very-strong">Linux</span> </h1>
<h2><a name="linux_require" id="linux_require">System Requirements</a></h2>
<ul>
  <li> The following library versions (or compatible) are required for the GTK1
    build: glibc 2.<b>2.5</b>, XFree86 3.3.x, GTK 1.2.x, Glib 1.2.x. 
    Red Hat Linux <b>7</b>.0, Debian 3.0, and SuSE 7.3 (or later)
    installations should work.  The recommended build (GTK2) requires glibc 2.3.2,
    XFree86 4.3.x, GTK 2.x, glib 2.x, libstdc++-3.3.
  </li>
  <li>Intel pentium class processor (233 MHz or faster recommended)</li>
  <li>64 MB of RAM</li>
  <li>100 MB of free hard disk space (significantly less space is required if you reduce the cache size)</li>
</ul>
<h2><a name="linux_install"></a>Installation Instructions</h2>
<p class="important"><strong>Note:</strong> It is recommended that
  you uninstall previous versions of SeaMonkey before installing [% rnote.name %].
  This will not delete your bookmarks, history, cookies and other
  information which is stored in your profile directory. </p>
<p class="important"><strong>Note:</strong> You must run SeaMonkey at least
  once to complete autoregistration and for the <tt>compreg.dat</tt> file to
  be written to the installation directory. If a different user (other than the
  person who installed the product) runs the program first, a core dump will
  occur. (Bug <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49345" title="Bug 49345 - Document that admins must run product once after installation">49345</a>)
</p>
<p><strong>Note:</strong> These instructions use the bash shell. If you're not
  using bash, either use the bash shell or adjust the commands accordingly.</p>
<h3><a name="linux_install_installer"></a>Installation with the SeaMonkey Installer</h3>
<p>To install SeaMonkey by downloading the SeaMonkey installer, follow these steps:</p>
<ol>
  <li>Create a directory named seamonkey[% rnote.version %] (<kbd>mkdir seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</kbd>) and
    change to that directory (<kbd>cd seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</kbd>).</li>
  <li>Click the link to download the installer file (called <tt>seamonkey-[% rnote.version %].en-US.linux-i686.installer.tar.gz</tt>).</li>
  <li>Change to the SeaMonkey directory (<kbd>cd seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</kbd>) and decompress
    the archive with the following command:<br>
    <kbd>gunzip -dc sea*.tar.gz | tar -xvf -</kbd><br>
    (This places the installer in a subdirectory of SeaMonkey named <tt>seamonkey-installer</tt>.)
  </li>
  <li>Change to the <tt>seamonkey-installer</tt> directory (<kbd>cd seamonkey-installer</kbd>) and run
    the installer with the <kbd>./seamonkey-installer</kbd> command.</li>
  <li>Follow the instructions in the install wizard for installing SeaMonkey.</li>
  <li>To start SeaMonkey, change to the directory where you installed it and run
    the <kbd>./seamonkey</kbd> command.</li>
</ol>

<h3><a name="linux_install_manual"></a>Manual Installation With the tar.gz Archive</h3>
<p>To install SeaMonkey by downloading the .tar.gz archive file:</p>
<ol>
  <li>Create a directory named "seamonkey[% rnote.version %]" (<kbd>mkdir seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</kbd>) and
    change to that directory (<kbd>cd seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</kbd>).</li>
  <li>Click the link to download the non-installer seamonkey*.tar.gz file into the
    <tt>seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</tt> directory.</li>
  <li>Change to the seamonkey directory (<kbd>cd seamonkey[% rnote.version %]</kbd>) and decompress
    the file with the following command:<br>
    <kbd> gunzip -dc sea*.tar.gz | tar -xvf - </kbd> (This creates a "seamonkey"
    subdirectory under your seamonkey[% rnote.version %] directory.)</li>
  <li>Change to the seamonkey directory (<kbd>cd seamonkey</kbd>).</li>
  <li>Run SeaMonkey with the ./seamonkey run script.</li>
</ol>
<h3> <strong><a name="linux_install_multiuser"></a>Multi-User Linux Installations</strong></h3>
<p>To install SeaMonkey for multiple users on Unix, install as normal, then create
  the following script in your SeaMonkey directory, make it executable
  (<tt>chmod u+x &lt;scriptname&gt;</tt>), and run it as a user with write
  privileges to the mozilla directory (e.g. root). <b>Do not run this program
  as su[do] root.</b> (Bug
  <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52653"
     title="Bug 52653 - regxpcom creates .mozilla in Real User's home">52653</a>)

</p>
<pre>
#!/bin/sh
dist_bin=`dirname $0`
MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=$dist_bin
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$dist_bin
export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH
$dist_bin/regxpcom
$dist_bin/regchrome
touch $dist_bin/chrome/user-skins.rdf $dist_bin/chrome/user-locales.rdf
</pre>

<p>You should then be able to run that installation of SeaMonkey as any user who has
permissions to access it. </p>

<h3><a name="linux_install_gnome"></a>Adding SeaMonkey to the GNOME Panel</h3>
<ol>
  <li>Click the GNOME Main Menu button, open the Panel menu, and then open the
    Add to Panel sub-menu and choose Launcher.</li>
  <li>Right click the icon for SeaMonkey on the Panel and enter the following command:<br>
    <br>
    <tt><em>directory_name</em>/seamonkey</tt><br>
    <br>
    where <em>directory_name</em> is the name of the directory you downloaded
    SeaMonkey to.For example, the default directory that SeaMonkey suggests is <tt>/usr/local/seamonkey</tt>.<br>
  </li>
  <li>Type in a name for the icon, and type in a comment if you wish.</li>
  <li>Click the icon button and type in the following as the icon's location:<br>
    <br>
    <!-- mozicon50.xpm was shipped in n7pr1.
     So this note appears to apply to netscape too,
     at least for the time being. -->
    <tt><em>directory_name</em>/icons/mozicon50.xpm</tt><br>
    <br>
    where <em>directory_name</em> is the directory where you installed SeaMonkey.  For
    example, the default directory is <tt>/usr/local/seamonkey/icons/mozicon50.xpm</tt>.</li>
</ol>
<h3><strong><a name="linux_install_rpm"></a>Installing RPM Builds</strong></h3>
<p><em>This may not apply to SeaMonkey yet.</em></p>
<p>The Red Hat RPM builds are created to work with the default Red Hat 7.x and
  Red Hat 8.x installations. Using these RPMs on SuSE requires installation of
  the <a href="http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=gdk-pixbuf">
  gdk-pixbuf</a> package. (Bug <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85218"
  title="Bug 85218 - mozilla-0.9.1-rpm libgdk_pixbuf.so.2 missing">85218</a>)
</p>
