> Hi,
> I'm a happy user of SBo, using nearly 200 packages built courtesy of the
> SlackBuild scripts here (numerous pats on many shoulders). There's only
> about two dozen packages where I had to either alter the scripts to fit my
> needs or write some from scratch.
> Now there's one set of addons left where I'm banging my head against the
> wall^^^^^keyboard, that's the extensions for Seamonkey and/or Firefox.
> I live in France, so the vast majority of the systems I install here are in
> French. Though there is a small german-speaking community in a village
> nearby, and I also provide some installs for these folks (I'm Austrian, so
> german is my native language).
> Slackware being not exactly an i18n-friendly distribution, I'm more or less
> searching in vain for translation packages. I'm mainly a Seamonkey user for
> web & mail, so of course, once it's installed, I can open the addons page
> and grab the corresponding .xpi packages for translations and Adblock Plus
> (a must-have addon). But when installing a network with more than fifty
> users, this solution is not viable.
> As a temporary workaround, I've created a template user, installed all the
> needed addons, modified the configuration and then packaged all of
> ~/.mozilla to be installed into /etc/skel. But this is the Quick & Dirty
> solution. My packaging skills stop here.
> If anyone of you guys knows how to build real clean packages for system-wide
> browser addons, I would really be grateful.
> Cheers from my little South French village,

Have a look at Archlinux's PKGBUILD [1], this may be helpful.
