[Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

I'm having issues trying to install the Seamonkey web browser in Miyo Awesome (Devuan GNU/Linux 2.0) . I like that browser because, not only is it lightweight, but it also comes with a pretty good email client.

I add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main

...and then run this:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 2667CA5C

...and get this:

Executing: /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.3PmnrSXlye/gpg.1.sh --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 2667CA5C
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

I've used this method with both Devuan Ascii and Debian Stretch without issues, but for some reason I can't get it to work with Miyo!

Linux hurricane 4.9.0-7-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u1 (2018-08-03) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Thanks.

edit: I have been using the instructions found here: https://wiki.debian.org/Seamonkey

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

Hi stroudwm,

You're using Awesome if I remember correctly?

Edited to add: yes, you're using Awesome...as you stated in the OP! tongue

I don't use Seamonkey, but to see what would happen, I just followed the instructions that you gave in your edit on my Miyo-Awesome installation; I also received an error message; however, there was more information given...

dan@miyolinux:~$ sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 2667CA5C
Executing: /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.2rpRGMj9Dw/gpg.1.sh --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 2667CA5C
gpg: failed to start the dirmngr '/usr/bin/dirmngr': No such file or directory
gpg: connecting dirmngr at '/tmp/apt-key-gpghome.2rpRGMj9Dw/S.dirmngr' failed: No such file or directory
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No dirmngr

So, I installed dirmngr...

sudo apt install dirmngr

After installing dirmngr, I ran the previous command again, and I received no errors that time. Went ahead and installed Seamonkey with the command given in the instructions, and Seamonkey installed.

Did you not receive that notification about dirmngr?

I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

Yep smile I did install dirmngr. I should've mentioned that, sorry.
edit: perhaps I should reinstall dirmngr...

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

Ok... I found the solution:
I changed:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 2667CA5C

to:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 2667CA5C

I don't understand why this worked... it wasn't my ufw firewall as 1) I've done this many times before and the firewall has never been an issue, and 2) I had thought of the firewall and had disabled it!

Anyhow, it works. It must be magic.

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

Strange...

I didn't touch the firewall...it was still enabled when I did everything.

Miyo-magic!

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

yes... strangely strange, yet oddly normal!

Thanks (again) for your help. I've written a nice review in Sourceforge, as well as the "Linux for Older Computers" Facebook group.

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

Just curious . . . why are you letting anything ubuntu touch your setup?

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

Because I want Seamonkey to stay updated. I neither like nor dislike Ubuntu: I'm rather ambivalent.
Why do you care?

Because Devuan users should be aware that packages installed from Ubuntu could have "unintended consequences" on their Devuan system.  It is a bit like Russian roulette.  But your box, your choice.

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

I've been using this for a few years, without issues. I got the instructions from the Debian wiki. If it breaks, I'll fix it. Or, in a worse case, spend a morning reinstalling.

Thank you for the review. I'm not on Facebook, so I won't see that one, but thank you anyway. smile

Re: [Solved] MIYO and Seamonkey

This may help in staying up-to-date on your installed version of SeaMonkey without the need to add any repositories...

https://sourceforge.net/projects/ubuntu … lla-build/

I used SeaMonkey in the past but so far cannot use it to watch Netflix since it does not yet support DRM playback like Firefox does,
