Fedora :: Thunderbird Won't Start After Updating Today?

Mar 16, 2011

I installed some updates this morning to my F14-64 system. Both Thunderbird and Thunderbird-lightning were updated. Now, Thunderbird won't start at all. The process is running, but no window ever appears.The only thing I've tried at this point is running 'thunderbird -safe-mode' from the command line to disable all plugins, but the result is the same as just running 'thunderbird' -- it just hangs. It doesn't *appear* to be a plugin problem

Fedora :: F14 Thunderbird-3.1.6 Crashes On Start?

Nov 3, 2010

Just like this:

/usr/lib/thunderbird-3.1/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 10857 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$prog" ${1+"$@"}
$prog is obviously 'thunderbird-bin'. I guess I should wait for an update?

EDIT: This happens due to a bug in gtk-oxygen-engine.

Feb 10, 2011

I have Thunderbird installed and I really enjoy it as an application. I would like to set Thunderbird to start on boot. I tried to locate the binary for it in /usr/bin/ but was not able to. Has anyone done this before or does anyone know how I might go about locating the binary for it?

Fedora :: Firefox And Thunderbird Would Not Start Properly

Jan 10, 2010

I just upgraded my laptop from fedora 10 to 12, in spite of all kinds of hassles I am nearly able to use the system. Except I noticed that whenever I connect to the ethernet via NetworkManager, both of firefox(3.5.6) and thunderbird(3.0) won't start a window and there is no error output. The programs just hang there so that I have to kill them explicitly. The strange thing is that if I just disconnect the network then they can start up without problem. I can then reconnect to the network and both of them work fine.

Fedora Installation :: Updating To 10 From 8 - Start Anaconda The Screen Remain Black

Apr 3, 2009

I've some problems upgrading to version 10 from version 8. My workstation is certified by RedHat. It's a HP xw6600 with double processor Intel Xeon 5405 2.00 12M/133 QC and graphic card for dual screen Nvidia Quadro NVS 290 PCle. In my OS library I found version 8 to install. It has been installed successfully! However; I've read about advantages for workstation on version 10. Thus, I've downloaded Fedora ISO ver.10 and I've tried to install it in my WS. Here I found a problem: Just in the moment it try to start anaconda, the screen remain black. After three failed intents, I have tried to upgrade my version through the 'yum':

# yum -y update
# yum install preupgrade
# preupgrade

It ran perfectly till anaconda try to run again. Then, I've tried to upgrade to ver.9 from ver.8 and I getting the same problem. I've downloaded the Live CD and that is blocked as well. Of course, I've installed all drivers of my WS before upgrade but I get the same problem. So... How I can fix this problem?... I really need move to version 10. Ah!... I've tried to install beta version 11 but after one hour I get a error messages due at a bug

Fedora :: Wireless Won't Connect After Today's Updates?

Oct 23, 2010

I did a "yum update" today. I love how every time, it's like a waiting game to see what broke.Anyway, aside from a weird Nvidia issue that doesn't concern me, the most noticeable problem is that my wireless will NOT connect to my WPA2 network. This laptop is the only machine that changed. The other laptops and wireless devices (smartphones, etc) didn't change.It sees all of the available wireless networks. It attempts to connect, but never does. After a short period of time, a dialog box appears, stating that authentication is required... The password is correct, it just won't connect. Here's a copy of the Yum log... I do see that NetworkManager has been updated, along with the kernel being updated.*sigh*

Ubuntu :: Won't Start After Updating?

Sep 3, 2010

How do I get into safe mode of something of the sort? I thought all I had to do was tap F6 as the computer boots up, it was running perfectly untill I updated it, when I pressed restart it started to shut down and then it just got stuck in a black screen with a small white cursor flashing, and there it stayed I've restarted it a load of times and no luck, I was getting ready to reinstall it when I remembered that I have no other cd burner in the house other than the one on the machine that's just packed up and though I could use a flash drive neither of the 2 I have with me are big enough, the bigger ones are both at work along with my ubuntu instalation CD.

On a second probably unhelpful note I'm getting really fed up with ubuntu it's proving to be about as unreliable as windows, every other week for whatever reason it fancies it just packs up and more frustrating for me is that while I know my way around windows and can usually sort it out I haven't got a clue about how to sort Linux problems out and before anyone mentions it yes it was a relatively new instalation, all I had installed on it other than the OS was the updates up unlit now and XBMC and it all had been working flawlessly for 2 weeks or so!

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Won't Start Up After Updating

Dec 5, 2010

A couple of days ago my girlfriend and I were using my laptop to watch Hulu on my tv. I've been able to do this in the past with some frustration because it is not exactly clear what settings to use so that the tv works and doesn't distort the picture. While we were using it, the update manager came up and I let the computer update while we were watching Hulu. It came time for the computer to request that I restart and I selected "Restart Later," which I didn't exactly do after we were done watching. I shut the computer down and the next day when we were about to turn the computer on to watch again, it turned itself off after selecting Ubuntu. I tried again and caught a message that it couldn't find the drive that Ubuntu was on. I haven't done anything else to the computer aside from updating it. I am running Vista 32 (shudders) as well as Ubuntu 10.04. I am currently on the Vista part of the computer and can see the folder for Ubuntu on the computer.

My question is: Is there any way that I can go into that folder and change something through Windows so that I can get Ubuntu back? Or do I have to reinstall Ubuntu, and how would I go about doing that?

Edit: I should clarify that I use the S-video out for watching tv - not sure that it matters.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Won't Start After Updating?

Feb 5, 2011

I just recently updated my Ubuntu's software on 10.04. I restarted my computer and everything was fine. The next day I tried to get into Ubuntu it just goes to a black screen and restarts.

I am currently dual booting with windowsXP/Ubuntu. Everything was working fine until just a few days ago. Now I am unsure what to do. When given the choice to boot between WindowsXP and Ubuntu only windows works. When I click on windows it loads up windows. When I click Ubuntu it just goes to a black screen and then restarts and prompts me again to select between them.

Please help. I am unsure what is wrong as I am still very new to Linux and using this type of OS. I am not sure if I need to re-install, but this would obvious be the last option.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 - Thunderbird Won't Start

May 8, 2010

I'm on a fresh install (albeit I've kept my former separate /home partition) of 10.04 UNR. Thunderbird (mail client) won't start saying it's already running and I've either to close it before or reboot.

Problem is Thunderbird is not running as also confirmed with the terminal output below Rebooting didn't solve, nor did uninstalling Thunderbird, rebooting and reinstalling.

--------copy of terminal output----------
ps aux | grep thunder

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Won't Start After Upgrade?

Jul 7, 2010

Tonight I did the usual apt-get update/upgrade and it installed a newer version of Thunderbird.

Synaptic says the version I have is 3.0.5+build2+nobin.

Their is a bug [URL] that refers to an upstream directory which I don't have. Apparently some recent upgrades have produced some kind of circular link. I am not sure whether that is the problem I have but this is supposed to give the answer. Not sure whether it does but here is some terminal output:

kgw@kgw-desktop:~$ ls -ld ~/.*thunderbird*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 kgw kgw 22 2010-04-22 20:48 /home/kgw/.mozilla-thunderbird -> /home/kgw/.thunderbird
drwx------ 3 kgw kgw 4096 2009-12-08 14:34 /home/kgw/.thunderbird

When I click on the Thunderbird icon, there is an item that appears in the bar at the bottom of my screen that says Thunderbird and it produces a tiny vertical bar at the top of my screen that can be dragged into a an application window that is blank.

Oddly, when I asked firefox to send a link (forgetting that thunderbird wasn't working) it popped up the usual box to send an email and let me send it. The main screen of thunderbird still won't start.

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Will Not Start After 3.1 Upgrade Using Ubuntuzilla

Jul 4, 2010

Today I received a pop-up from Ubuntuzilla indicating that version 3.1 of Thunderbird was available. So I started Ubuntuzilla and updated Thunderbird to version 3.1, as I did successfully before with previous version updates. The update proceeded normally, without any error. However, now Thunderbird does start. I get the "Starting Thunderbird" in the bottom status bar for a few seconds, then nothing! I checked with Synaptic Package Manager, but it only indicates version 3.0.4

Ubuntu Installation :: Reset Update Manager To Start Updating Properly?

Apr 17, 2010

I am having problems with my newly upgraded 9.10 distribution that keeps locking up. I had started a thread on that but along the way, I noticed another problem with the Update manager. I posted the following text in the same thread but realized that I must start a newer thread since it has its own issues (so sorry if you see this text in my other thread).I had upgraded from 8.10 to 9.04 with ISO image and then to 9.10 with ISO image. In between, I did not reset anything in the Update manager (the upgrades were within one day of each other). Since the computer was connected to network during upgrades, I also let it fetch any newer packages as it needed them.

After the upgrade, I started having system lock ups and it requires hard boot. I tried to check for any updates using Update Manager. It reported that system was up-to-date. However, I noticed in the Settings that cdrom was selected in Sources (perhaps because I had upgraded with ISO image). I unselected the cdrom and tried to update the packages. Since I upgraded using ISO image, there is some problem here about recognizing the repository perhaps. Do you think my problem may have stemmed from upgrading twice using ISO images and not resetting the Update Manager in some fashion in between? Although the system did fetch upgraded packages during upgrades. How can I reset the update manager to start updating properly? Perhaps Authentication is an issue?Of course, I am still having trouble with lock up.

Software :: Thunderbird Slow After Almost Year Of Use / Start Diagnosing This To Figure Out What's Wrong?

Jan 26, 2011

Thunderbird is becoming quite slow. Startup, response to actions and especially the address lookup as I'm typing an email address.

It gets so slow sometimes on my Ubuntu 10.04 laptop that the screen goes dark.

Can anyone know how I can start diagnosing this to figure out what's wrong?

This is TB 3.1.7 on Ubuntu 10.04. Not sure what else to post.

Fedora :: GDM Unable To Detect Any Users After Today's Update: "No Seat-id Found."?

Dec 8, 2009

This was weird. I just updated my software, through a "setenforce 0" and root shell access since the last update before this left me with a bugged GUI updater, restarted and then logged back in to . . . no users visible in GDM at all. There was nothing but a huge "Other" box staring me in the face. I got the idea to check /var/log/messages and then the GDM greeter logs from there, and here is what I came up with.
