I tried installing seamonkeyfrom Mozilla and from the Kubuntu package
manager, and I get the same error. I tried to add the line
"/usr/local/seamonkey" to /etc/ld.so.conf, and the error error message
went away, but seamonkey still wouldn't start when I tried to run the
script file "/usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey." The program doesn't give me
an error message at all. The program just doesn't run. I installed Opera
9.5, but I would still like to use Seamonkey or Firefox.
