Fedora :: Closing Thunderbird 3.0b4 Fails To End Processes?
Oct 12, 2009
since updating from thunderbird 3.0b3 to 3.0b4, thunderbird no longer closes properly when using file - quit. the windows close but the processes are left running and i have to kill them. it does this in normal mode and safe mode however, if i move my .thunderbird directory out of the way and set up an account from scratch it seems to work ok but i don't really want to have to fully reconfigure everything from scratch. how to identify the offending setting/addon/etc. ?
grabbed the latest from mozilla... thunderbird 22.214.171.124 i run: ./thunderbird and get this: ./thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I'm running F12 and Package Updater has been telling me to update Thunderbird for two days but fails on every attempt. I tried to go the yum route today with yum remove thunderbird yum install thunderbird
And I get this error: Error: Package: thunderbird-3.0.10-1.fc12.i686 (updates) Requires: nss >= 3.12.8 Installed: nss-3.12.7-6.fc12.i686 (@updates) nss = 3.12.7-6.fc12 Available: nss-3.12.4-14.fc12.i686 (fedora) nss = 3.12.4-14.fc12
Is there any way I can update nss such that Thunderbird will have access to the correct version or is this something that is in process for the repository?
After updating to kernel-126.96.36.199-147.fc13.i686, my email (Thunderbird) fails to connect to the pop-server, and webpages (Firefox) load VERY slow, if at all.When I go back to kernel-188.8.131.52-85.fc13.i686, I have no problem at all.Network chipset: RTL8180
I have what I think is a somewhat different failure of standby than I've seen listed on other threads, and I'm stumped.The system hangs on this for a while, then comes back to the login screen without going into standby. This ONLY HAPPENS on a SECOND standby attempt--the first standby after booting ALWAYS succeeds.The standby log doesn't indicate any failures.I had made other changes previously that temporarily got standby working consistently:/etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash usbcore.autosuspend=-1"
I am running MozillaThunderbird-3.0.9-0.3.1 under gnome-desktop-2.24.1-2.18.1 on OpenSUSE 11.1. Up to about a month or so ago, I was using the latest version of Thunderbird 2.x, but an OpenSUSE update updated it to Thuderbird 3.0.9 and I've had troubles ever since.
Just to make sure that it wasn't a problem related to any plugins, I disabled all the plugins I was using, but the problem still persists.The problem I have is as soon as I reply to any message in any of my Inboxes, I can no longer view any other message--read or unread, in either the main view window or in a separate tab. This behavior is repeatable with about 90% consistency.
My speculation is that the is some strange interaction going on between Thunderbird and something else. It's hard for me to believe that this is the way that Thunderbird behaves on all operating systems as I'm sure the Thunderbird developers would have fixed it and most likely if would have been picked up by the OpenSUSE team. But hey, I could be wrong.
I'm not even sure if this is the right place to report this. But it's very annoying as the only way I've found to correct it is to restart Thunderbird.Anyhow, I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this or heard about behavior like this. If so, what did you do to resolve it?
P.S.- I tried to search this site but found too many hits for "thunderbird 3" to be useful.
I have a new 10.04 installation with thunderbird 3.04.This is on my wife's computer which is recently converted from windows XP where she used thunderbird as well.We use for the SMTP server - my own linux workstation, and used the same on her windows XP setup. Never had any problems. I am now having problems. I've tried every ****in' combination to no avail.So here are current settings:Server name: 192.168.1.3 -just as was with the Win XP setup.port 25 select User name and password. User name is entered. "use secure authentication" is unchecked.When I attempt to send I get the following:Sending of message failed.An error occured sending mail: Unable to authenticate to server 192.168.1.3 etc. etc.If I uncheck 'Use name and password', I get the following error message (in part)Relaying denied.so I'm stumped with all of these options, I've also tried secure authentication with similar problems.
Since my laptop went back to DELL to be repaired closing the lid does nothing. It used to put the laptop into suspend. I even tried on my windows partition and closing it still does nothing. I suspected that the switch(?) that controls this is not sending any data to the laptop - is there away to see if any input is being received when the lid is closed? Or does anyone have any other thoughts on what might be at fault?
My Automatic Bug Reporting Tool has been notifying me of bugs when closing Firefox and VLC. It does not say what to do with the bugs, or any other description thereof. It just gives the status that the bugs are not reported. What do I do with this, please?
Thanks to Lucid not working properly on i845, i855 and other 8xx chips, had to re-install Karmic on my mum's computer.I saved all the data from her old install and I ve managed to get all her old emails from thunderbird, but I cant import her address book.In Thunderbird/tools/import/addressbooks it only allows importing of LDIF, .tab, .csv and .txt files, but I cant find any of these files in any of the Thunderbird, .Thunderbird, Mozilla-Thunderbird or Mozilla folders in Home folder or anywhere, all I can find is "abook.mab" which IS supposed to be her address book, but when I try and import it the entries are blank and/or indecipherable (prob cos not a compatible file type).
Its one of those "simple" things to do, thats taken hours and hours of time, but that I cant actually find out how to do.
Actually there are three c programs double,half and square which respectively double halfs and square an integer , i have place .out file in sbin folder ,now they are processes now i have to concatenate these three processes like double half it return 8 how i will write the codes for it.
I replaced my gnome with openbox some time ago, some of the gnome utilities still boots at at the start and I love and use most of them. Still few of them are causing problems, how can I selectively disable from autostarting?Also which utility takes care of mouse speed? I keeps resetting my settings?PS; I did some research and fooled around with xinit files, tried to grep them out of the init stuff, no result...
I've Fedora 11 64-bit with Sun java SDK 1.6.0_18 and when quitting eclipse, the GUI window will be gone, but the process eclipse and java that it instantiates will not die. Subsequent execution of eclipse just creates new eclipse and java processes, taking up more memory. It doesn't matter whether I run from the command line or from the gnome menu.I tried both Fedora packaged eclipse-platform-3.4.2-20.fc11.x86_64 and the manually downloaded Eclipse Galilio, with the same problem. I tried removing ~/workspace/, ~/.eclipse and also tried -clean option, but still no go. I also have ~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_*/configuration/config.iniosgi.bundlefile.limit=100 as explained in other threads which solves the start problem, but it has no effect for stopping.l -9.
I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda 184.108.40.206 the Fedora system installer - please wait.....
I just switch to fedora from windows recently. And I love the terminal of fedora alot. The problem is when I run some command on the terminal, I need to wait for that command to finish before executing another command. This is very inconvinient, say If I open eclipse using the terminal, this eclipse program will hog to the terminal until I closed it. So if I want to use terminal again I have to open another one.Hence the question is: Is there any way open multi processes(command) using only one terminal?
This is a bit complicated to discribe because I don't know the cause, but this problem has been happening for some time (over a few years and generations of kernals), with different Gnome distributions, including Ubuntu (and family) and Fedora. When using Gnome (and only Gnome), I frequently see the screen dim. At the same time, all processes will be locked up. This may happen for a second or two, or it make require a reboot. The mouse can usually move and the underlying program GUIs are still visible, it's just that one or more of the GUIs will be dimmed. This is usually most noticeable with a browser, but that may just be a coincidence.
I noticed this weird behaviour yesterday after the last update (not sure if it's really related, but I didn't notice this before).When I do a fresh start and log in - all the gnome related processes are DOUBLED in the memory Of course it causes weird errors, applet hanging or crashes, very sensible slowness while booting and operating, etc, etc.Basically I have 2 gnome-session loaded at once - one as a child process of gdm-binary and another separate one. Both sessions have all the child process loaded, so I turned out to have 2 Nautilus, 2 Metacity, 2 Gnome-panel, 8 python processes and all the set of applets are also doubled.
Few days ago, the server did not respond to a ssh request from a user at night. A user tried to check what went wrong with computer and tried to login from terminal next morning. As the computer was unresponsive, he somehow decided to boot it by turning the power off. To make the story short, the server rebooted; however, he can't login to his account. Actually, the server could not start some processes; but was able to ask user to enter his account username. Even though, he enters the correct username and password, server does not accept the request. I also could not login as root.
I just checked the server logs by booting it in single user mode. Here are some interesting lines:
Before the reboot: irqbalance : can't balance irqs on a uniprocessor system: failed
After the reboot: irqbalance : can't balance irqs on a uniprocessor system: failed
In the gnome-system-monitor, on the "Processes" tab in the "View" menu, I should be able to choose between "Active Processes", "All Processes", and "My Processes". The chooses are all greyed out and I am only able to view "My Processes".I launched the app as root and had the same lack of choice.I also disabled SELinux and rebooted the machine.
I have a desklet that, occasionally after toying with network stuff, will tell me that large amounts of data are being sent/received. What's a good way to determine what processes are occupying these resources?!
I run version 10.04 GNOME. My problem is (after substantial searching) that I need to have both users ('juliusz' and 'sarah') running Thunderbird but with the same profile (settings, email, accounts etc. preferably of 'juliusz'). The only results on the internet are share Thunderbird between Windows and Ubuntu.
I have two users juliusz and sarah. I need either of them to have the same profile, always in synch whenever they logon to own account. When I tried to edit sarah's /home/sarah/.mozilla-thunderbird/profile.ini by inserting: Path=/home/juliusz/.mozilla-thunderbird/xxxxxxx.default after i run Thunderbird for 'sarah' I get message: "Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system." I checked with "ps aux" there is no Thunderbird running in sarah's session. There is no Thunderbird running in juliusz's session when I reloged to juliusz.
i finally tried to use a mail client other than gmail, and can't figure out how to Bcc someone. Evolution has a CC field, but i don't see how to make a Bcc field. Thunderbird doesn't show either one. Anyone know how to do this? Btw, it took me about 2 or 4 minutes to setup Evolution, but Thunderbird just asked for my email and password, and set itself up in seconds! I guess that i will be using Thunderbird, since it seems that they're not messing around.in thunderbird, once you already have an email address in the "To" field, you can click the "To:" label, and it opens a drop down menu, and then you can select Bcc.
I have installed 11.4, and it seems (seemed) to work OK so far. I installed Thunderbird via the opensuse "1 click install". the installation ran smoothly, but now a click on the Thunderbird icon does not activate any mail client; the only success is that Thunderbird icon jumps joyfully and then disappears.
I'm running F12 LXDE on one of my laptops and run Thunderbird as my preferred email-client on that laptop. But I can't seem to find a way, in Thunderbird, to change my preferred browser to Opera. I must be overlooking something..
When I double click a WMV attachment in an email, nothing happens.When I right click and save it to desktop, I can double click it and it runs!WMV is nowhere to be found in the list of applications of thunderbird..No option to add any new extensions, of course
