    As it's only two packets that needs installing there really isn't much point re-uploading it.

    It will work fine without them. I'm just a bit anal when something isn't complete.

    All the two packets do is give OpenOffice a better look in gnome and puts a right click entry for samba.

    Two more bugs:

    The first one - when you right-click a file and choose "Send to -> Send as: E-mail", Moz Thunderbird is only started and no new message with the selected file as attachment is composed.

    The second one - The FireTray add-on of Moz Thunderbird counts the Junk messages, too. I filed the bug on the bug tracker of the add-on. It is issue 120.


    Great work again! This Ubuntu spin should definitely has its own web-site!!

    One of the best parts about Pinguy as opposed to using Mint or Zorin is that it recognizes that it is Ubuntu at it's base. As such it does not rebrand itself with a new boot logo or icons. Next time you are looking to install Ubuntu on your own, or anyone else's system, you should seriously consider using Pinguy instead - if you do odds are you will be pleasantly surprised.
    Absolutely agree with Jeff.

    To fix the problem with FireTray. Only if you are using IMAP, go to Edit > Account Settings > Synchronisation & Storage and un-tick the top box.



    To fix right-click a file and choose "Send to -> Send as: E-mail" can you try going to the main menu > Control Centre > Personal > Preferred Applications and under Mail Reader pick Thunderbird.



    Can you report back and tell me if that has fixed the problems, as I don't have the "Send to -> Send as: E-mail" bug.

    Yes, that fixed it.
    Thanks very much, pinguy!


    There's one more thing that bothers me. The application font in Moz Thunderbird does not change if the system DPI is increased and the default Thunderbird font is very small for me.

    And the FireTray add-on can be fixed in a better way.
    Go to "Account Settings..." > "Junk Settings", enable "Move new junk messages to:" and after setting "Other:", select "Spam on user@gmail.com".

    And I don't know how the Docky Unread Count add-on should function. Because there is no counter on the Thunderbird icon in Docky.

    That's to do with the theme. I have added another theme on there for people that don't like the default one. It still fits in nicely with the Elementary theme.

    Silvermel:




    Docky Unread Count add-on did work until Docky upgraded. I left the add-on on there because there is also the Update Notifier that will install the new one once it is out and hopefully that will fix it.
