    Question trouble with thunderbird script

    Hi; when installing the firefox script (installnewfirefox.sh), everything went smooth, but after trying to do the same with the thunderbird one, I get an error message and the installation stops:


    Backing up old thunderbird preferences

    ln: invalid option -- T
    Try `ln --help' for more options
    Previous command did not complete succesfully. Exiting

    This was just after asking to make (or skip) a backup of the previous profile at ./mozilla-thunderbird

    Am I doing something wrong or what? Can anybody offer some advice? thanx!

    hmm... what version of ubuntu are you running? ln definitely should have the -T option in it. could you look and see also what version of the script you are running (open it in text browser and look at the top). also, please post the output of "ln --help" (i want to make sure it lists the -T option).

    anyway, let's go from here. :)
