Jim how/where did you 'install' SeaMonkey? I extract to a home folder
and simply run from there:
actually my command in the menu is:
/home/gg/Seamonkey2.6/seamonkey/seamonkey -mail -browser

If you still have problems, can you please install Joe Lesko's ppa
version? Note: I have been testing all of the versions as Joe builds
them & can pretty well guarantee that his 2.5 will install & work on
your system:


$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:joe-nationnet/seamonkey-dev
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install seamonkey
