Unable to download SeaMonkey Internet Suite

hello! first time linux user who currently daily drives macOS and windows. i recently picked up a panasonic cf-sv7rdavs as a school/work laptop and q4os seems great for what i specifically need from an os.
however, i'm having some issues downloading seamonkey (which i prefer most and would really like to use over alternatives if possible). i downloaded the newest 64x us-english release on trinity and followed the instructions on seamonkey's page, and what's discussed on the following post, but am still unable to run the executable.

post i cross referenced, advice by user bin: /viewtopic.php?id=3216

i've extracted the tar into a seamonkey folder, but am unable to run the seamonkey file.
copy-paste of my terminal:
ox@q4os-desktop:~/Downloads$ tar -xf seamonkey-2.53.18.1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2
ox@q4os-desktop:~/Downloads$ cd seamonkey
ox@q4os-desktop:~/Downloads/seamonkey$ ./seamonkey
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/ox/Downloads/seamonkey/libxul.so:
libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

double-clicking the seamonkey file does nothing, and the terminal command does as shown. 
is there a separate software/install i need to launch these kinds of files maybe?
i have successfully downloaded some other software on this machine already, but none of them required extracting a tar file.

if anyone has any tips or advice or something obvious i'm just overlooking i'd be super grateful!! smile

Post title needs to be changed; it sounds like you've downloaded it but can't get it to run.

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/ox/Downloads/seamonkey/libxul.so:
libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Apparently SeaMonkey cannot locate the above-named dependency, which is needed for it to run.

@ox
I tried the same as you and Seamonkey works (I'm using Q4OS 4.12 & Plasma). No error message.
The apparently missing file is in fact included in the .tar.bz2 archive and is by far the largest file. Maybe there was a problem when decompressing? You could test the archive integrity (md5sum or similar) and extract again or download again.


Q4OS machines: [Samsung R519 - Pentium T4200 2.0 GHz - 4 GB RAM - 500 GB SSD] & [Sony Vaio - Pentium P6000 1.87 GHz - 8 GB RAM - 500 GB SSD]
