Ubuntu :: Can't Import Address Book From Thunderbird To Thunderbird

Aug 26, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Restore A Corrupt Thunderbird Address Book Using PHP?

Feb 2, 2010

My address book recently got corrupted and I was unable to restore the e-mails, however looking at my abook.mab file I could see that all of the e-mail addresses were in there. I wrote a php script to create a new tab delimited text file, which you can import into Thunderbird. I used it to recover about 7300 contacts and it seems to work well for the most part. Just change 'abook.mab' to point to your actual corrupt abook.mab file or put it in the same directory as the script.

Ubuntu :: How To Import Address Book Into OpenOffice

Nov 16, 2010

I'm on OpenOffice 3.2 and have read the OpenOffice help doc concerned with this but it refers to the Windoze version.This should make no difference but it seems to, in my case anyway.In the Win version I can see the option to import the Thunderbird address book although I can't actually get it to do it! No such option appears in the Linux version.In fact I seem to be missing a stack of drivers such as SDBC/ODBC etc. Mine is a stock Ubuntu 10.04 install. I added the Openoffice database element but other than that it's all standard.

I'm struggling to believe there isn't a relatively simple way to import an e-mail client address book and print some sticky labels in Ubuntu.

Software :: Importing Thunderbird Settings From Portable Apps Thunderbird

Sep 13, 2010

I had a portable apps version of Thunderbird (windows) that runs off a thumb drive and wanted to take the settings and transfer them to my Thunderbird that's on my Linux computer.

This is what I did:

First, I installed thunderbird on my Ubuntu 10.04 Linux box and opened it, and closed it (so that it would create the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder in the user account).

Then, I renamed the linux /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder to .thunderbird_ORIGINAL

Then, I created a new /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder

Then, I took the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableDataprofile folder and copied it to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

Then, I looked into the /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL folder and wrote down the name of the folder with the ".default" extension.

Then, I renamed the profile folder (that came from the windows e:ThunderbirdPortableData folder) "<name-I-wrote-down>.default".

And then, I copied the profiles.ini folder from /home/<username>/.thunderbird_ORIGINAL to the /home/<username>/.thunderbird folder.

I opened up Thunderbird in Linux and everything seems fine! (I'll definitely be keeping a backup just in case)

My question is: is this fine and dandy, or a recipe for disaster?

Ubuntu :: (GNOME) Thunderbird For Two Users - "Thunderbird Is Already Running But Is Not Responding"

Sep 9, 2010

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 installed 11.4, and it seems (seemed) to work OK so far.

Ubuntu :: Viewing LDAP Address Book?

Jun 29, 2010

Is it possible to view all of the entries in an LDAP Address book at one time (ie in the address book pane) of an email client? I've tried in both Thunderbird and Outlook 2003, and I get the same behavior - the mail client can auto-complete entries, but it can't seem to list the whole address book at once.

Is there a certain structure of the LDAP tree that will grant this support? Can it be done at all? It seems to me an 'address book' that can't be browsed as a whole isn't very effective...

I should add that I'm the one who set up the LDAP server - I'm just testing various capabilities of LDAP.

Ubuntu :: Transferring Outlook Address Book

Dec 25, 2010

I suffered a permanent crash of WinXP. It won't boot and there's an incomprehensible error message.Anyway, I was able to recover almost all my data and move it over to Ubuntu 10.4 on the same computer. What I could not recover was my Outlook Address Book. I know it is funky to transfer it from one Windows email client to another, but transferring it across OS's seemed almost impossible, especially since I don't have Outlook's Export feature available. Even Google and other webmails needed to have those Outlook address files converted before they could use them.

What would be the plan of least resistance here for a Total Noob? Can I, should I, and how do I transfer the address book to a different computer with Outlook for export before transferring it back on the Linux side?

Ubuntu :: Use Thunderbird For RSS?

Mar 2, 2010

Work has decided to allow a few of us to get RSS feeds, and their reader of preference at this stage is Thunderbird (on XP).Couple of quesions:

1) Does anyone here use Thunderbird for RSS? Have your experiences with it been good or bad?

2) Seem to recall from a brief stint (ie less than a week) using it few years ago it used to pop up a window notifying you of new items received in the feeds, but I'm unable to make it do that now,Am I missing something really obvious, or am I mistaken in thinking it used to notify me of new feed items?

I was wondering if there was a way to run Thunderbird without the gui so all I would have is the indicator in the messaging applet.When I get an email then it would notify me and I would click on it and it would reopen the Thunderbird window

Ubuntu One :: Evolution - Cannot Sync - Address Book Does Not Exist

May 1, 2010

I installed Lucid and went to Ubuntu One from Me menu, clicked manage account, did not get a message to add the computer. After reading a few threads I deleted two Ubuntu One password tokens from the password and encryption keys in applications-accessories. I have not yet been able to get the Ubuntu One contacts in Evolution to work. It always says the address book does not exist. Additionally when I try to sync a file it says 'syncing' but just sits there on 0% doing nothing.

I have tried a fresh install and still have the same problems (I deleted the passwords again to allow me to add the computer). I have tried purging ubuntuone* and reinstalling after deleting the config directories, still no luck. I have tried adding another email address to the single sign on and tried logging in but again this did not work.

I do have another PC I am using now that can connect to Ubuntu One on a different user name and account (in other words nothing to do with the other computer), and I have noticed there is a password entry marked 'desktop couch user authentication' which I do not have on the other computer.

Ubuntu One :: Cannot Remove Contacts From Evolution Address Book

Oct 21, 2010

Looks like many people had issues in deleting multiple contacts from evolution-couchdb-ubuntuone address book. I had an issue (on more than one pc, and different ubuntu one accounts) and can't recognize if there are related posts. Something is messed up, but why? The reason why I'm opening a new thread is to ask: is gnome-keyring manager expected to have two entries for couchdb in the default behavior?

I want to erase my address book. After Ctrl+A > Ctrl+D > Yes and no effect, I can't delete single nor multiple contacts. Evolution states:
"Eliminazione del contatto non riuscita. Altro errore"
In Italian that means: Cannot delete the contact. Other error. (Maybe: undefined eror, unexpected error in en localization).

Ubuntu One :: Error: Unable To Open Address Book

Jun 13, 2011

When trying to copy my personal address to CouchDB I get this error: Unable to open address book. This address book cannot be opened. This either means that an incorrect URI was entered, or this server is unreachable. Detailed error message: Invalid source

I have been trying (since 10.04!) to sync my Evolution contacts. UbuntuOne seems to be the most promising way of doing that automatically, however, I completely fail at accomplishing this seemingly simple task. I have NEVER been able to successfully back up my address book to UbuntuOne. Note: all other sync works fine. It's just Evolution that is seemingly smarter than I am. Thing I have done to solve the issue:

- Upgraded from 10.04 to 11.04
- All three steps from this article:
- Cuss and swear and roll my eyes, mutter a few unrepeatable curse words about Canonical and their mothers.

None of this has solved my issue.

Ubuntu :: How To Install Thunderbird 3 (tar.bz2)

Jan 13, 2010

I just download Thunderbird 3 and a file named as thunderbird-3.0.tar.bz2 got downloaded.
But I do not know how to install this file. I am very new to Ubuntu and recently migrated from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 9.10.

I know how to install the .deb files but how do I install the source code files.

I already got some answers from various websites... but they are too confusing, since I am very new to Linux and do not know much about it. But I am trying to learn.
So please suggest me a simple solution.
