Hi all,
Been running Mozilla ThunderBird in KDE-Slax 431. I think i started with a 3.0 pet and progressively upgraded via the Help-Check for Updates menu. Anyhow things worked fine until i applied the update the other day to upgrade to ThunderBird 9. After the update, the program would not launch, and terminal returned nothing. I was able to delete my entire thunderbird folder from /mnt/home and then reinstall using a ThunderBird 8 pet i found here on the forum. This new installation installed to the /opt directory instead of /mnt/home, however all of my old accounts, emails, contacts, etc were intact since they are obviously stored elseware. I have not attempted to update to 9 from my new install of 8 again, although the results might be different now since i used a new pet and it installed to a differnt location.

Same problem here on Official 431. I had started with the Mozilla supplied binary many versions ago and multiple previous upgrades were successful.

The debug option in the start script offers this....
Code:
# /root/thunderbird/thunderbird
+ moz_libdir=/usr/local/lib/thunderbird-9.0.1
+ found=0
+ progname=/root/thunderbird/thunderbird
++ dirname /root/thunderbird/thunderbird
+ curdir=/root/thunderbird
++ basename /root/thunderbird/thunderbird
+ progbase=thunderbird
+ run_moz=/root/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh
+ test -x /root/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh
+ dist_bin=/root/thunderbird

+ exec /root/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh /root/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin
++ basename /root/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh
+ cmdname=run-mozilla.sh
++ dirname /root/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh
+ MOZ_DIST_BIN=/root/thunderbird

+ MOZ_PROGRAM=/root/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin

+ '[' '!' -x /root/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin ']'
+ exec /root/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin
#



A potential problem is that the directory /usr/local/lib/thunderbird-9.0.1 does not exist.

The user settings and messages are stored in the hidden directory /root/.thunderbird
