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.
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.
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:
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.
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
Thunderbird won't start in Lucid 10.04 It used to work, but stopped working (an update perhaps) Running from the menu just gives a tiny window, which when expanded is blank Running thunderbird from the from the command line crashes as follows:
Code: peter@trinity:~$ /usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.5/thunderbird-bin /usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.5/thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libmozjs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Looking for the missing library:
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?
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.
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
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 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 updated my laptop to Ubuntu 10.04 and among the many problems I've had is this strange one with Thunderbird 3. It will not refresh it's window. That is, it loads, and some of the panes (such as the one on the bottom right that shows the selected message) remain blank.
The work around I found is to grab the title bar and move the window. That will force a refresh, but it is terribly annoying to write a message and not see the words until I stop and move the window a hair.
This behavior happens when the Appearance settings (System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual effect) are set to "Normal" or "Extra". Under "none" Thunderbird behaves normally, but everything else looks terrible!
I'm guessing this is a Compiz problem; has anyone else seen this happen? more importantly, how do I fix it? and all other programs work fine under all appearance settings.
i would like share what i did when i migrate my ThunderBird 3.1.7 including (extensions, calendar, settings, addressbook) windows 7 to ubuntu 10.04. 1. Archive(7zip) the mail database or the thunderbird folder in the windows 7 which is in the location (C:Users(Ur Username)AppDataRoaming) 2. Install the TB on your linux and open it to create the ****.default folder and the profile.ini in the home/.thunderbird/* Note: althought your windows thunderbird archive backup has the ****.default and profile.ini it doesn't work in my case when i replace or put it the the home/.thunderbird/* directory 3. When you open the TB in the first time it will create *****.default and profile.ini, dont replace or delete it as i said above, what you must do is copy all the files or content in the directory of ****.default in the windows 7 backup archive which is in location (/Thunderbird/Profiles/.default/*) to the home/.thunderbird/ all of it but first remove the content of your ******.dafault and now its almost finish 4. Start ur TB and its ok Note: In my case the lightning calendar doesn't sync to google i reinstall my lightning and provider of google extension before it work. I think this is the 5th time i migrate my TB mail from windows xp to 7 to linux..
I upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04 and thunderbird which was previously my default mailer switched to evolution. How do I switch it back? The thunderbird startup option to make it default doesn't seem to work. The Gnome preferred applications widget doesn't list thunderbird or allow another program to be added.
So I have thunderbird and it works great but I wanna check out the lighting add on and need a new addition. I have it set so it should update automatically but alas this didn't happen. I have downloaded the newest version to my hard disk and am wondering if I can just update it from that file? I don't want to try installing it for fear of loosing everything I already have.
I have recently adquired a Dell Inspiron laptop with Intel Core 2 processor and Windows 7 Home Basic Edition (64 bits) installed. Since I need for working linux I have performed a reduction of the main partition of Windows leaving free a 20 GB of hard drive. With an Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop version (64 bits) I have installed then Ubuntu linux in the empty space mentioned now then having a dual boot laptop (I have done this before with other computers, I knew how to do it so to make it work). All went well and both OS works fine. I have installed a lot of packs without any problem, when I installed thunderbird pack I notice that its version is 2.0. I didn`t think that was a problem until I wanted to install some addons and thunderbird complaints that those addons only work with versions superior to 3.0. " Ok" I said to myself, and looked here code...
Since upgrading to 10.04 Thunderbird doesn't work properly. It is Thunderbird 3.04. It works for locally-created users but exits with 'segmentation fault' when the user is from LDAP. In the latter case, the home directory is local, created by pam_mkhomedir. I get the same problem with a newly-installed 10.04 system.
I cannot understand why it worked fine in 9.10 but not in 10.04. I set "set -x" in the thunderbird script and here is the trace from that:
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.
