Installing Thunderbird 1.07


Hi all. AT the moment I'm attempt to install and run thunderbird. But I'm having a little trouble. For the last hour I've been running around the mozzila site looking for a walkthough on how to install the software. All I have found was to use the command "run thunderbird" but when I do so all I get it a run command error (I've cd into the folder).

Could anyone offer advice, I sort of loss for what I meant to do. Thanks in Advance.

cd into the dir where you extracted thunderbird to.

Then type

Code:
./run mozilla.sh
That should do it

By the way, what distribution are you using? Because some have packagemanagers which makes installing wery easy.

Hi,

Go get the rpm for fedora Core 4 here:

ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/core/...1.fc4.i386.rpm

Doubleclick it to install. Or if you prefer from a terminal type:

Code:
rpm -i thunderbird-1.0.7-1.1.fc4.i386.rpm

Thankyou, it went sweet. Also by chance would anyone know where I could find a Java Runtime RPM package?

Your welcome.

You can download java here:

http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

Grab the Linux RPM (self-extracting file)(filesize: 15.47 MB)

And read the instructions ' To install the Linux RPM (self-extracting) file '

Link to instructions here:

http://java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm

All went good, Java is installed & Limewire is running sweet. For a fact Limewire is working better in linux then it does in windows. Thankyou again.
