I've installed FatDog 700, and was interested in using Thunderbird. I do not see Thunderbird in the gslapt repository. Is it possible to install Thunderbird? Is it better to switch to sylpheed?

Dwnd from Mozilla, unpack and hit the executable.. It should still be portable.

On the other hand, update pkg manager and search >> mozilla-thunderbird.

The latter approach, I'll assume.. should place it in the menus.

We haven't build Thunderbird into the repo yet. So try Semme's advice, download official 64-bit Thunderbird from mozilla website and give it a try if you really need thunderbird.

Alternatively, Seamonkey comes with an email client which works like and behaves like Thunderbird (because it and Thunderbird shares about 95% of the code). It even comes with Calendaring with hooks to Google Calendar, if that's what you're looking for.

Hmm, what I wanted to know. That every package is compiled by it's maintainers sounds more robust.
Quote:
Despite the fact that it uses Slackware-style package management tools, Fatdog64 700 is not based on Slackware. 700 is built from modified versions of LFS (Linux From Scratch) and BLFS, version 7.5.

Speaking of maintainers >> Paul Sherman is one class act!

This a Fatdog64 thunderbird 31.1.1 package now available here:http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/contrib/packages/700/. The package is based on the Mozilla binary package. I hope this helps.
