I am new to Ubuntu and am unable to open the Thunderbird.tar.gz file.
At the terminal I enter; tar -xvfz thunderbird-18.104.22.168.tar.gz
The response is;
tar z: cannot open: no such file in directory
tar: error not recoverable: exiting now
I have tried multiple times without success; printing "sudo" at the beginning of the command did not help. Leaving out the "z" or "gz" did not help. The file is on my desktop and I copied the path and inserted it into the command which also did not make any difference.
Also unable to open a tar.bz2 file. I entered "tar jxvf <filename>.tar.bz2
What am I doing wrong?
