View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade to thunderbird 3.0

December 13th, 2009, 12:10 PM

does everybody know when will be ready the thunderbird 3.0 deb file from the offial repo? I've just seen that from Mozilla's web site ther is only the binary file version, too hard to setup by a pure newbye like me.

In general I'm asking why the Mozilla's developers did not create pakages for almost the major linux distributions like Ubuntu and Fedora...
I Think they should be aware from that: I'm using Chrome since it is wery easyer to install iside Ubuntu than Firefox, infact, every time I had to update my Firefox installation I always had troubles, first of all I changed browser for that reason: I hope I'll never meet these upgrade issues with Chrome.

Thanks for the help

Hi Alex

There is some useful info and tips on various issues around installing TB3 on this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1349907).

I finally got TB3 installed last night, mainly thanks to nanotube.
