I'm just trying to find a fairly current thunderbird .pet.
Can you direct me to one? Thank you.


Just download Thunderbird extract the file, and look for the Thunderbird icon, It will say "Thunderbird"

Take the file and link it to your desktop.

Here it is
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

Two ways to extract it (Well Three but no need for the Terminal)

Right click and choose Extract Auto detect subfolders

or

Just open the Ziped folder and it will open up and give you extraction options.

Go to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/, and click on the green "Thunderbird Free Download" button on the left. This should download a .tar.bz2 file.

Go to your download directory in ROX-Filer, and locate the file. Select the file, right-click on it, and select Rename. Highlight the entire filename in the box that pops up (from 'thunderbird' all the way to the .tar.bz2) and Copy the filename (either by pressing Ctrl+C, or right-clicking on the highlighted filename and selecting Copy). Click on Cancel (don't follow through on the rename, in other words Smile ).

Next, open a terminal window by pressing the ~ key. Enter the following:

Code:
tar xvf


...with a space after the "xvf." Use Paste to insert the filename you just copied, and press Enter to run the command.

After tar is done extracting the .tar.bz2 archive, you should have a "thunderbird" directory in the same folder as the downloaded archive. Drag that folder to wherever you want to keep it, such as ~/my-applications/bin.

Next, open the thunderbird folder, after you've placed it where you want it to be permanently stored. Drag the "thunderbird" file to the desktop, to create a shortcut. You can then rename the shortcut to whatever you want, and change the icon.

Sub_title: Geesh! How to take a download from Mozilla
 

Good Gravey, Makoto!

I had no idea that is what is involved in taking a download from Mozilla direct!

Thank you for taking time to write all these instructions out.

It could probably be shortened; I never had any luck with the GUI archivers in my Puppy 4 setups - they usually didn't keep the folders or permissions intact, for some reason. (And, I don't have the "Extract Auto Detect Subfolders" option Amgine mentions. Sad )

But, it's the method I use, just to be sure, when manually installing programs (that are already compiled) from a .tar.gz or tar.bz2 archive, including Seamonkey 2, Firefox, Thunderbird, Peazip, etc. Very Happy

Oops, Sorry I must have had Kubuntu in mind.

But there is a way to extract ziped folders with the GUI.

Amgine- modern Pup's extract just about everything these days. Pup's point is to avoid the cli.

Sub_title: Tux's Linux Command Lines - TuxFiles
 

Thank you, I've looked around for years now trying to find something that would explain in common words how to use the terminal in Puppy. Thanks to Tux!

How come the terminal entries look different in Ubuntu than in Puppy?

I've tried entering commands I've learned in Puppy and Ubuntu says, "it's not BASH" ?
