thank you!
I have installed it on Puppy 4.0 (full hdd install) and despite warnings about long list of missing libraries Embarassed all seems to be fine ...
Any advice about these libraries? (ie should I try to do something about getting them?or is it OK without them?)
I am running Thunderbird in parallel on Puppy, Mepis and XP using common mail folder (in a separate partition)

I too installed Thunderbird from someone around here, and got a dumpload of missing dependencies from the pet manager, at least one page worth if not two.

Despite this it runs fine...

Any idea about this?

The missing libraries are in the thunderbird folder...this is added to the library path at runtime by the thunderbird launch script which the package manager does not know about.

PostPosted: Mon 21 Dec 2009, 02:01    Post_subject: Connecting Firefox to Thunderbird 3.0  

I am having trouble getting Firefox to call up Thunderbird when I try to "send link" from Firefox. I have tried the procedure at: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Default_mail_client, but for some reason it does not work.

In every other aspect the two packages work fine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

cheers, Paul

1. In Firefox's Location (URL) Bar, enter "about:config" and then press <enter> or click "Go".
2. With the cursor in the body of the resulting page, <right-click> the mouse.
3. From the pop-up menu, select "New".
4. From the next pop-up menu, select "String".
5. In the pop-up dialog box "Enter preference name", enter network.protocol-handler.app.mailto (without quotes), and click "OK" (You might wish to cut-and-paste that phrase to ensure correct spelling).
6. In the pop-up dialog box "? network.protocol-handler.app.mailto", enter /usr/bin/kmail [or the actual filesystem location of your desired email client] and click "OK". This should be the Full Path of the program, i.e. /usr/bin/kmail, not just the path /usr/bin.


from your link this does work for mailto..not sure about other functions as i remove them anyway....make sure you have the full path to thunderbird

mike

edit..it does...email the page link brought up thunderbird composer too Smile
thanks for the tip.

Start firefox, File > Send Link > Choose a Application > File System > usr > bin > find and select thunderbird, click ok > you can check remeber my choice for mailto links for it not to ask for a mail client again.

links should open in your mail client now. Smile

I do not know if this is a puppy issue or a thunderbird bug, or that I am doing something wrong

But the command

thunderbird -ProfileManager

no longer works in Thunderbird 3. Does anybody know how to get into the profilemanager?

Yep, I think it is a small gap in puppy 4.2.1


In console, the full command

/usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin -ProfileManager

yields

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: libnssutil3.so No such file or directory

So... now the question is where to get libnssutil3.so ?

/usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin -ProfileManager

that would fail because it needs the thunderbird launch script to locate libraries...not the cause of yer problem though
