It runs as a portable exec last time I checked- no need for a pet.

If your setup's frugal, drag it from /mnt/home to your desktop.

Maybe backup your current ~/.thunderbird/*.default profile..

I got it going, thanks Samme.

I did not know it is a stand alone program.

So does that mean I can just have it on a USB and have my mail on any Linux PC? Idea

Correct. It's portable but creates and writes to $HOME/.thunderbird.

If you wanted you can backup the default profile and profile.ini created there, store it on your flash drive and copy it in after it's again created on a new box. Follow? Meaning.. you can rm -rf $HOME/.thunderbird anytime you don't feel like leaving this info behind..

I like it, It will save a lot of time if (when) I setup another puppy.

Hello Semme,

I am looking for a Thunderbird .pet.
Just installed Puppy 4.3.1 frugally on Gateway 400 laptop.
Also, just installed Shinobar's Seamonkey 2.12.1 .sfs. (the latest he has listed).
There is no Thunderbird listed anywhere in 4.3.1 system (according to search).

Can you direct me to a recent Thunderbird .pet?

Thank you Smile

Sky- like I told Amgine, it's portable.

Unpack the latest somewhere convenient and drag the executable to your desktop.

If you want it in the menu, may I suggest MenuMaker.

You might have to symlink the exec to /usr/local/bin. Offhand, I can't recall..

PS - You have room to run the latest SM?

It's not there, Semme.
Like anywhere...package manager....menu....searched for 'thunderbird' nada.

EDIT: Found one - peebee has one from last year.

Personally? I'd pass on an outdated pet- sfs or not. Don't you have the disk space?
