Ubuntu :: Thunderbird Won't Open Anymore?

Jul 12, 2010

I've been using Thunderbird for a while. Well today it wont open anymore.

I'm just getting a very small and empty window frame, but that's it.

I've tried the command line with -safe-mode, didn't work. I've tried the command line with -profilmanager, didn't work.

The weird thing is that when using gksudo thunderbird, it does open (but of course with an empty profile)

How am I supposed to "repair" what seems to be a broken profile ?

Software :: Thunderbird Cannot Connect To Yahoo! Mail Anymore?

Jun 2, 2011

Recently, or more specifically, yesterday, Thunderbird started telling me that the IMAP Yahoo server does not accept my password encryption. I checked in the settings, and it says it is "Normal Password". I then change it to "Encrypted Password" and then change it back after it reloads and tells me the encryption is wrong. After I change it back, it works fine for about 10 minutes, after which it tells me the encryption is wrong, even though its on "Normal Password". Mad, I delete the account and start a new one. The account manager then tells me that my password is wrong, writing something like


Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?

Seeing as I tried to do this about 50 times, I doubt I typed my password in wrong 50 times. My other account, a Gmail one with IMAP as well, works just fine. Is the IMAP address of Yahoo different now?

PS: My firewall is off. I have also installed the WebMail and the Yahoo Webmail Thunderbird Extensions.

OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird Icon Jumping / Stops Jumping / Thunderbird Does Not Start

Mar 15, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Lucid - CPU Scaling Not Working Anymore (Powernow-K8)

May 9, 2010

In Lucid I cannot get CPU scaling to work anymore, in previous Ubuntu releases this was not a problem with the same hardware (AMD Phenom 9500 Quad). I used to load module 'powernow-k8' and 'powernowd' to make it work, but it seems 'powernow-k8' is not available in Lucid. Anyone who has cpu scaling working in Lucid?

Ubuntu :: USB Mount Point Is Not Volume Label Anymore In Lucid

Apr 30, 2010

When I plug in a USB in Lucid, it gets mounted at /media/usb0 , etc. I'd like it to mount as /media/<volumelabel>. I know HAL is gone and things have changed, but I'd like to still have the USB mounted at /media/<volumelabel> as it used to, as I got scripts that use those mount points.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Head Doesn't Work Anymore In Lucid?

May 9, 2010

Upon upgrading to Lucid from Karmic, my dual head setup doesn't work anymore with the new 2.6.32 kernel. In the previous kernel 2.6.31, everything works as expected (also when I boot Lucid with that kernel). On 2.6.32, the only thing I get is two clones. Is there some new type of configuration required that I missed or should I still compile some new kernel module???

My card:

rogier@rogier-desktop:~$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 If [Radeon 9000] (rev 01)
My xorg.conf, which worked fine on Karmic:
Section "Monitor"

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Lucid LTS Anymore - Automount Error For Data Partition; / Is Md0

Apr 15, 2011

My Lucid LTS Ubuntu Studio 64 (amd) won't boot anymore; / and /home each are software raid 0 partitions.

I have a Multimedia partition (also ext 4) which I attempted to chmod with a GUI program (I forget what its called now) to enable all users read/write access. Looks like I inadvertently fstabed that partition to be mounted at boot-time (normally my password was required in order to mount it).

I tried to logging out and back into my OS to see if the partition was now writable but it wasen't; instead a filesystem error was noted. I realised then that my partition was IMPROPERLY labelled and I was in a tired state and didn't remember how to rename it & rebooted to make sure all was ok. But it was not:

An error occured when mounting /media/Ubuntu unknown filesystem type "Multimedia"

Boot: recovering journal

From my generic Ubuntu system on a non raid partition, I finally removed the space in the 'offending' partition: Ubuntu Multimedia to UbuntuMultimedia. And I changed the permissions for it.

But if I try to boot Ubuntu Studio via recovery; booting in low res is unusable, and it gets stuck if I SKIP mounting. So I am left with manual boot or drop to a shell. I will have to use an editor like vi or nano and the command prompt. I know that I likely only have to comment out a line in etc/fstab but I am only familiar with nautilus or gedit for this type of operation. And since this OS is on a raid partition its not 'seen' on the live CD....

I would need someone to offer me clear steps to follow with the non gui editors otherwise I'm in trouble...

I just wanted to use that partition for video editing and now I am locked out of my system!

Ubuntu :: Send To In Lucid Using Thunderbird Won't Work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Safe To Upgrade To Thunderbird 3.1 Yet? (Lucid)

Jul 16, 2010

I notice the repository Thunderbird version is 3.0.5 but 3.1 is already released. I'm on 3.0.4 and it took me forever to find a compatible version of the Lightning extension, which I really need.Now I am afraid to upgrade to anything older than 3.1 because it might break Lightning, and I'm afraid to upgrade to 3.1 because maybe there's a reason it's not in the official repository yet (and because who knows if the latest version of Lightning really is compatible with the latest version of Thunderbird). My question is, is anybody out there currently running Thunderbird 3.1 with the Lightning extension on Kubuntu or Ubuntu 10.04, AMD64? Have you found it to be stable?

Ubuntu :: Won't Start Up Anymore

Jan 17, 2011

I have this major problem with the latest version of Ubuntu (10.10). Since I applied this automatic update Ubuntu won't startup anymore.I am 99% sure it's something to do with the graphics drivers. I have an ATI Radeon HD5850. I can still boot up in safe mode in one of the older kernels of Ubuntu. But with the latest kernel I can't even get into safe mode.What I want to do now, is to remove all traces of any potential drivers and then reinstall them. What is the best way to do this?

Ubuntu :: Latest Thunderbird On Lucid Lynx From Stable Mozilla Channel?

Nov 11, 2010

I am using Lucid Lynx (10.04.1) and I use Thunderbird from the official Ubuntu-Mozilla PPAs:


I see that each release of Ubuntu has only one supported version of Thunderbird - in case of Lucid Lynx it is 3.0 series. Is it possible for me to upgrade to 3.1 on Lucid Lynx through this official channel? I don't want the other two solutions to achieve this:

1. Download the latest Thunderbird directly from Mozilla website (No. Updating it manually for the next release is a pain and I don't want to get into it)

2. Upgrade to Maverick (No. I prefer LTS releases and want to stick to Lucid)

Ubuntu / Apple :: OSX Doesn't Start Anymore

Feb 1, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu on a USB HDD on my Macbok Pro 5.3. Everything seemed to be fine, but while rebooting the computer, OSX doesn't start anymore. So, I would say I erased the boot sector of the internal HDD or something similar but I'm not an expert. My internal HDD seems to be fine: One 200 MB FAT32 partiton partition labeled EFI and with the boot flag, One HFS+ partition for the system. I tried to boot with the Snow Leopard DVD and run the Disk Utility to make a "repair". The repair was fine, but the Mac still doesn't boot anymore. (Forget Ubuntu, it's only OSX related, I'll try again Ubuntu only when I'll be able to boot OSX again).

Ubuntu :: KDE/Plasma Does Not Start Automatically Anymore

Jun 13, 2011

After upgrading my husband's laptop to 11.04, KDE does not start automatically anymore. kdm (the log-in screen) appears. I select "KDE Plasma Desktop". But instead a kind of terminal appears in the top left corner. This console does not have window decoration. When I type startkde into it, KDE starts completely normally.

The same happens with a newly created user, so a misconfiguration in .kde cannot be the cause.

/usr/share/xsessions/kde-plasma.desktop is correct:


The metapackage kubuntu-desktop is installed.

I have tried reconfiguring and reinstalling various packages that I or others thought might be responsible:


GNOME was installed on the same computer, too, and caused some problems after the upgrade (instead of KDE being the default session, it was Unity, but no menus or control bars loaded). After trying all the things mentioned above, I uninstalled all GNOME/Unity-related packages to rule out they were causing the problem (according to that list: [url]). It did not help, even though for two packages messages appeared that sounded like they might make a difference:


I compared with


With my other two computers that work fine after the upgrade to 11.04, they also use startkde and kwin.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE Won't Start Anymore?

May 9, 2011

since about a week I got a serious Problem on my Multimedia Homeserver. It firstly happened after doing normal updates with 'zypper dup'. Starting the Machine xdm starts up normally, but after logging in KDE (4.6.0, OpenSUSE 11.4 64Bit) shows its progress bar and finally ends up hanging at about 80% completion. Repos are the original distro repos (except nvidia, packman and VLC Repos) for stability reasons - this means no KDE-factory or Tumbleweed repo is activated here. Icewm starts fine so I can use Xine but I'd like to get KDE back running again for using amarok and others.Here is what I tried so far:

tried another user - same result
tried root-user - same result
renamed ~/.kde4 - same result

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Empathy, Evolution, Gwibber Don't Start Automatically Anymore

Apr 30, 2010

Just did a fresh install of 10.04, everything working great, and I was pretty excited about the integration with gwibber, evolution, and empathy. I was fiddling around, getting things the way I wanted them (startup programs and such), and upon a test restart, noticed that unlike the first couple of times I had restarted with 10.04, the Evolution icon no longer came up in the tray, and my "Me" menu was useless - didn't have me signed in to Gwibber or Empathy, didn't give the option to do so.

Yes, I can still run these programs no problem, and I could probably get it such that they ran at the start... but what I would like is for them to run minimized, in the tray, like they did the first time I booted up 10.04. Again, I trust this is a mere couple of lines in the command prompt, I just don't know what they are.

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

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.
