    When will Thunderbird 2 hit the repos?

    Will Thunderbird 2 ever hit the Feisty repos? If so, when?

    Or are we waiting until Gutsy for this one?

    I have already upgraded, just a consideration

    I wish I'd known that before I upgraded manually.

    Now I'm installing thunderbird using the sources over my manual installation, I have no idea of the result here.

    Actually. Having done it manually helps. I'll Trash the /opt/thunderbird file, install from repo, and then if all is well, delete the trash file.

    Thing is, I like having Synaptic display the right version numbers, I hated having 2.0.0.0 installed and it showing 1.5.

    So, is there any chance for 2.0 in feisty? Why we have to wait for new dist upgrade to have newer versions? I think that 1.5 and 2.0 aren't so different that 2.0 need serious testing.

    It will probably appear in feisty-backports once gutsy's version has been tested more.
    I also backported thunderbird from gutsy's archive to feisty.

    Repository is
    Code:
    deb http://www.telemail.fi/mlind/ubuntu feisty main
    To get the public signing key
    Code:
    wget http://www.telemail.fi/mlind/ubuntu/937215FF.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

    This looks like a very stable repo, and looks like it will work with Gutsy! It even has Pidgin! It even has upgrade packages, so no more GAIM+Pidgin at the same time!

    Thanks!

    Thanks mlind, I was already using your repository for font's related packages but didn't noticed there was a main section too...

    Just deleted my /opt/thunderbird and installed your debs. Just one issue.. your "thunderbird-locale-es-es" package doesn't work well. I had to install the .xpi file manually.

    Hi mlind

    I'm a bit of a linux newb, I've got thunderbird installed from the standard feisty repository, added your repository, and now in synaptic I have a mozilla-thunderbird package (a transition package) but when I select it and choose mark for upgrade it says "Depends: thunderbird but it is not installable" and I can't find a "thunderbird" package...

    Am I doing something wrong? Do I need another repository adding to get the thunderbird package?

    Thanks

    Matt

    Heh, no worries, I added the repo at the top of the post and now it's letting me upgrade.

    Thanks

    yeah, I somehow managed to remove the thunderbird binary from my repository when I just wanted to remove the huge source tarball to save some space. I just reuploaded it back. oops.
