Did you use Synaptic or apt-get or aptitude to install Galeon? If so,
either your sources list is broken, or it's a bug. The file it complains
about is supplied by a number of packages, including Firefox and Mozilla

 $ dpkg -S
nvu: /usr/lib/nvu-1.0/
firefox: /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/
mozilla-browser: /usr/lib/mozilla/

So on my system it appears that firefox, mozilla-browser and nvu all
supply I would expect an apt/Synaptic install of Galeon
to supply it too, or some kind of link to it.
