Im on my second week of linux use, and having all the newbie problems you'd expect, but still im plugging away
My problem is that i managed to update mozilla to 1.4 after a fair bit of hassle and it seems to be working fine, except for my mail. Whenever i try to open it nothing happens, either by icon or toolbar menue. I'v been searching the boards for a solution without luck.
I tried to use Synaptic to load mozilla mail, but it need's the older version of mozilla to run.
Any help would be great thanks.
It's almost as if its not installed I looked to see if i could download the mail client separately but that does'nt seem to be an option. I really don't want to have to go through the whole uninstall/install thing again if at all possible.
Were you trying this when you already have a mozilla window open? Sounds like it, if so, try simply clicking on the little mail icon (second from the left at the bottom of the Mozilla window) or selecting Window->Mail and News
Thank's for the suggestions guy's, but still no luck
Im having a hard time trying to figure out what it was that i did wrong.
I uninstalled the older version of mozilla before i installed the new one, and the mail client worked fine for about a day and then suddenly it just stopped responding. Is it poss able that something else i installed afterwards ( java or flash) could have corrupted my mozilla directory ?
[ralph@localhost ralph]$ mozilla-mail
bash: mozilla-mail: command not found
I get the same message when i log in as root also.
I used the ALT/F2 command and the search for files utility's but still nothing. Everything else ( composer, IRC chat etc) work fine.
What would happen if i installed the older mozilla over this one, i noticed it when i was using synaptic.
Didn't work, but thanks.
I gave up and reinstalled everything and now the mail client is working fine. Unfortunately i now have a permission issue
I set everything up just the same as before so as to use the icon launcher in the task bar. When i click on it i get a permission denied message. Im able to run mozilla from the run program terminal, but that's it. I read a few other posts about permission problems, but that didn't help.
I removed all of the old install, so that's not the problem)
What did i ever do to mozilla, very frustrating
