OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird 3.0.9 Fails With Gnome Under 11.1
Oct 29, 2010
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 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 have updated GNOME 3 and it no longer works. Having suspected extensions the problem I have manually uninstalled all extensions via command line. This got me to log in instead of the problem screen. However, the desktop is entirely unresponsive, after log in it no longer responds to anything, although the mouse still tracks.
The automatic updater cannot install bundle-lang-gnome 2233: "A protected system package cannot be removed" ("Ein geschtztes System-Paket kann nicht entfernt werden.")Detail info: "Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed: error: package bundle-lang-gnome-extras-de-11.2-19.21.1.noarch is not installed"
grabbed the latest from mozilla... thunderbird 188.8.131.52 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
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. ?
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?
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.
After updating to kernel-184.108.40.206-147.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-220.127.116.11-85.fc13.i686, I have no problem at all.Network chipset: RTL8180
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
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.
Noticed this last night, when I try and launch either Firefox or Thunderbird using the GNOME menu or the quick launch icons, it fails. I am able to launch them both from the command line in a terminal. Other applications seem to launch fine, so I'm at a bit of a loss where to begin taking this apart... I do get a task in the task bar that says "Launching Firefox", but then nothing comes up. The same thing happens with Thunderbird. That task just goes away. Another odd thing - following a reboot the launch buttons work once. If I close them, they won't launch again unless I run them from a terminal window.
I installed the latest version of Thunderbird by downloading the tarball and copying the contents to the required folder and just point launchers to the Thunderbird file. However I cannot get GNOME Do to run Thunderbird. When I type run in Gnome Do, I go through the entire list without having Thunderbird as an option. The only plugin I can find is one that allows you to copy Thunderbird contacts to the clipboard. I have set Thunderbird to be my default mail client, so when I type an email address I can choose to compose a mail in GNOME Do, but just opening up Thunderbird to check mail is not possible.
I want the mail icon (indicator applet) in the panel to open thunderbird when I click mail, and when I click "new message" that tbird message opens. I've already got the notification going, and I have removed evolution.
I've just installed lenny from dvd, and am just settling in. I'm curious about virtual machines. so I've installed xen. With xen comes qemu by default. Now the setup I've recently become familiar with is Suse-11 which is quite slick.In Suse, Yast provides a distribution prepared virtual management section for xen, including an installer. Debian's setup is similar but not a clone. I want to try out the installer. Aside from the differences, debian has a screaming deficit. On booting dom0 in Lenny, if fails to get into gnome, badly. I can tell what's probably wrong, but I need to fix it. Now I'm also a gentoo fan and very practised at posting queries, so here goes.
Debian's config for X is somewhat unhelpful. The xorg.conf just states Configured device and configured monitor for its components. If it expanded on just what the settings were it would help. What I have is a frambuffer driver not loadinf or being implemented.
I was compiling an application called Audacious. One of the dependent packages I needed to obtain was called Glib. After installing Glib (and a package it also required), my GNOME began failing and after rebooting the computer, the login GNOME login screen fails to displaying. Does anyone know what's gone wrong?
Now after installing Glib, restart your computer and your GNOME will have failed. Why the F did this happen?
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.
I've recently been tasked with setting up a couple linux servers and have run into an oddity. Using the default install for Wheezy to set up a basic LAMP stack, I have noticed after joining the computer to my windows AD domain, the Add/Remove Software application no longer prompts me for authentication and will not remove or add applications. I installed samba, winbind, and krb5 using apt-get from the root console following the procedure listed here. [URL] ....
Today I upgraded my system to the Nvidia driver 340.93 and 4.2.0-1 kernel on Debian Stretch.
While I wait for the gnome login screen to pop up I get the "Oh no something has gone wrong" message.
When I log in from another terminal and execute startx , gnome initiates and starts although settings like my resolution and other xserver settings are not loaded.
From the journalctl I believe the error is located in the following section:
Code: Select allOct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC org.a11y.atspi.Registry: SpiRegistry daemon is running with well-known name - org.a11y.atspi.Registry Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session: X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session: Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX)
I reinstalled the xorg-xserver and the nvidia drivers and I get the same behavior.
Looking for some info in order to reconfigure the gnome-session to work?
I am trying to install form source (gnome-voice-control-0.4.tar) the voice recognition tool. ./configure seems to go fine, the Makefile has been made bur when I try to install by typing make some errors appear.

i'm trying to build gnome3 using the jhead script on [URL]... but it fails every time. has any body else had better luck with this? I'm using the script not the repo as they are out of date atm the last part of the scripts error from
what the command is for the System Tray, so thought I'd ask here. Note I am not asking how to put a system tray on the panel - I know I can add a notification area, but when I reboot there will be 2 of them, so this is not what I want.
I just need to be able to initialise it when it fails to load. Since my upgrade to Lucid, this has happened a couple of times, so expect it will happen again soon enough.
I upgraded to jessie today and I am having problems with my background. When I log in, the background tries to start on the external monitor but then it fails to load. I can change the background in settings but it does not show up. The background just becomes black and I am not sure why.
at my work we have upgraded suse to 11.2, thus we also got an upgrade of thunderbird 2 to 3. When I now save attachments to our network disks it writes them as user=rw (600), and no longer as 644. I do not want to do chmod for every attachment.When creating a file by csh or bash terminal or downloading a file by firefox it does write the file as 644, which is good. Can someone please give me a suggestion of how I can solve this problem? Is there something I have to change in the prefs.js file?
