Yesterday I had Firefox3.6 and Thunderbird3.01 running on my Ubuntu9.10
amd64 machine. I had java plugin issues with Firefox and ended up
re-formatting and reinstalling Ubuntu.
I downloaded the Moz files and extracted them to /home/<me>/firefox and
/home/<me>/thunderbird. If I go to the file browser and double click
their shell scripts a dialog box pops up and I choose "run". I see a
little disk activity but nothing else happens.
If I open a terminal and type:
I get a listing of the directory including run-mozilla.sh, thunderbird &
If I do:
The program 'thunderbird' is currently not installed. You can install it
by typing: sudo apt-get install thunderbird
thunderbird: command not found
They were running yesterday but not today so I must be making some kind
of basic mistake and would appreciate some help again.
