Installing Thunderbird Help!


I downloaded the latest version of Thunderbird (v1.5) and am attempting to install by hand since I am spoiled by using "apt-get install <filename>".

I download the file and have extracted it but now can't install this for some reason. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong or how to fix this?

Code:
cwilliams:/home/cwilliams/Desktop# mv thunderbird/ /tmp/
cwilliams:/home/cwilliams/Desktop# cd /tmp
cwilliams:/tmp# ls
alsa-dmix-11482-1142621662-501535  kde-cwilliams  ksocket-cwilliams  ksocket-root  ssh-lpCud11389  thunderbird

I think you need to run the .sh file first. Should be something like this.

sh.run-mozilla.sh

"libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

If you have that lib [ls /usr/local/lib/lib* to find out]

try as root
/sbin/ldconfig
/sbin/ldconfig -v | grep stdc++ #to check

not as root.... Unless that's the way you rock it.
then thunderbird.

Here is what I found...

Code:
cwilliams:/media/cdrom0# /sbin/ldconfig -v | grep stdc++ #to check
        libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.7
Not sure what this is or what we need to do with it.

Nothing, that was just making sure that ldconfig worked.
It lookes like it didn't. unless libstdc++.so.6 is just a newer version....
did you run "ls /usr/local/lib/lib*" to make sure libstdc++.so.5 was installed?

You need to have libstdc++.so.5 installed on your system. See if you can install it using the package manager for the distro you're using.

Peace...
