    It just stayed at 78% for about 3 minutes and I killed it. Re running it now to see how it goes on try two.

    EDIT: Ok, after 4 minutes of waiting on attempt 2, it is still hung on 78%. It started right at 78%, and stayed there for the 4 minutes. I'm going to assume this is a server problem, I'm 100% sure it is not my internet problem since I have access to the web and am downloading via d4x. (I set it to the lowest setting so it isn't the cause of the problem either, it isn't eating my bandwidth.) I will give it some time and give it a whirl again.

    Shane

    Edit2 Ok, I ran it again, and figured I would just let it set there and think for a while. However before running it, there were some new updates (from the update that it does) and so I installed them, in all honesty I ran them while the last one was just setting there doing nothing. Running it again the 3rd time, it picked right up and started again. Don't know for what reason. Seems to be running fine. Ok, hung up on the key thing, after the 5th run, worked fine. I think there may need to be a little fine tuning that needs to be done. Seems to work fine other than you have to run it 4 times to get it to work. I can't attribute all of the problems to the script, but somehow I think it didn't allow for the update. Thanks for the script though!

    thanks for your testing and feedback.
    it looks like the default timeout for wget is 15 minutes, which is probably a bit too long. in the next version of the script i will set the timeout to 1 minute, after which time it will automatically retry.

    i am also working on a more robust gpg key retrieval, so that should hopefully reduce gpg key verification problems.

    but, actually, regarding your very first question - i think the script posted here may be a couple of minor revisions behind the script posted on pykeylogger at this point. so, i will edit the first post to make it clear that that is no longer the "current" version to test.

    thanks again for your persistence and reporting your results!

    Glad to be of help. To make it clear, I did get the script from the pykeylogger page, and not this forum. You may want to replace your link with a link directly to the same one as on the pykeylogger page. Just a thought, that way you don't have to upkeep two links. Thanks again for the script, I'm going back to Thunderbird after using Evolution for several months. T-Bird, is just way better of an email client. Lacking on PIM qualities but and awesome email client.

    Could someone tell me how to reverse the the installation and go back to TB 1.5? What should I change the symlinks to?

    It's a shame, but Thunderbird 2 freezes for me any time I receive a new email, and it also likes to download the same email 5 or 6 times off the server, so it isn't much use to me.

    Hi,

    I just downloaded the script from the main site and, with the help of the excellent explanations, ran it. It worked perfectly first time, keys & all.

    Well done & thanks very much.

    http://pykeylogger.sourceforge.net/w...hp/Ubuntuzilla has the instructions, I believe it says just to run the script with -remove.

    @nanotube did you want people to test the remove portion as well?

    That does nothing. It ignores the remove flag...

    [edit] I moved it to the Desktop and it worked. weird....

    That is a good point, because when I ran mine, I didn't run it from the desktop either. (for the install). I ran it from another folder. I don't really do work on my desktop.

    well, yea, all functionality should be tested. :) aysiu did report than -remove worked, but if more people test, there's more chance that bugs will be caught.

    maybe you mistyped the command when you tried it the first time? the script doesn't really do any sort of checking to see if it's on the desktop or not, so there's no way that should matter...
