User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0 SeaMonkey/2.40 Build ID: 20160118183220 Steps to reproduce: I install Seamonkey on Debian Jessie following the instruction here and I really get a incomplete integration in Gnome3 Actual results: I couldn't define Seamonkey as default browser I couldn't define Seamonkey as mail client I could send a file using the contextual menu in the gnome3 file manager Expected results: I should have receiver instruction on how to get Seamonkey recognize as a browser and a mail client by Gnome3. To do so, this is what I did : 1. Create a .desktop file (name it seamonkey.desktop, even if it doesn't matter) [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=/opt/seamonkey/seamonkey %U Comment[fr_FR]=Suite Internet Seamonkey Name=Seamonkey Comment=Suite Internet Seamonkey Icon=/opt/seamonkey/chrome/icons/default/seamonkey.png MimeType=x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/mailto 2. Change the path of EXEC and ICON to match your installation 3. Run as root "update-desktop-database -v" to see where to put your .desktop file, look for something like "Search path is now: [/usr/local/share/applications, /usr/share/applications]". Root access required 4. Put the .desktop file in one of these path. Run "update-desktop-database" as root. 5. You can now go in your "Gnome settings", in "Details", "Default applications" and select "Seamonkey" in "Web site" and "Email client"
English is not my native language but it should be understandable.
It seems we are talking about above mentioned page. I don't know whether this one still needs to be fixed, I have no Linux skills.

IanN could you tall a look if still valid. Patch fell thru the roof because no flags set.
I had to re-install my systems and I had to come back to this bug report to configure my system correctly with the last version of Seamonkey. That is more than two years i create the issue AND provide the patch. Can I do something to accelerate the merge in the documentation ?
tonymec could you probably take a look here. I am really not a Linux guy. Samuel, sorry for the more than too long delay. A lot of devs left the building looking for Elvis.
