Yesterday, I decided to try Ubuntu 13.04. I’m still using Ubuntu 11.04 as my daily OS but some apps begin to be quite outdated.

I was shocked to discover that SeaMonkey could not be found in the main depots. It seems that it was removed in Ubuntu 12.04. smiley

To get the latest versions on Ubuntu 12.04, I’m using Joe Lesko’s PPA. But he doesn’t provide a package for Ubuntu 13.04 yet.

Fortunately, an up-to-date SeaMonkey package is available in Ubuntuzilla depot:

To install, type the following commands in a terminal:

echo -e “\ndeb 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

I really hope that someone will step up to maintain this high profile software in an official Ubuntu depot so it appears in the Ubuntu Software Center. I wish I had the time to do it… but my current job and extra activities don’t leave me enough time. smiley

Oh by the way, it’s been 3 years since the last update. I’ll update this blog more often. Promise. smiley
