View Full Version : problem running script

February 23rd, 2008, 12:01 AM
I am trying to install Thunderbird with the Ubuntuzilla script. Placed the tar.gz in /tmp. I get the following error message when running the script:
maggie@maggie-desktop:~$ ubuntuzilla.py -a install -p thunderbird

Welcome to the Ubuntuzilla Thunderbird script version 4.4.5

This script installs the latest release of the official Mozilla build of Thunderbird on Ubuntu Linux. If you run into any problems using this script, or have feature requests, suggestions, or general comments, please visit our website at http://ubuntuzilla.sourceforge.net/

Retrieving the version of the latest release of Thunderbird from the Mozilla website...

Exiting.")

Can someone help please?
Thanks in advance

seems to work just fine for me... try it again, and if it still throws the same error, please run this command in a terminal, and post the output:

wget -c --tries=20 --read-timeout=60 --waitretry=10 -q -O - http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/ |grep 'product=' -m 1 |sed -e 's/.*<li>.*thunderbird-//' -e 's/&amp.*//'

(should produce the latest thunderbird version number...)
