Subject description: I installed Thunderbird but where is it?
 

It should be easy, but still I cannot find how. Embarassed
With the puppy Package Manager I downloaded Mozilla Thunderbird.
Now itś there in Installed packages
And now? Where can I find this program to work with it?
I searched in all the menus but it is not there.
Thanks a lot for you help,

Bart

Open a terminal. Type 'fixmenus' and press [ENTER].

When it's done, close the terminal. Should be fixed.

Thanks starhawk.
I did what you said and entered the command line, but no reaction as for example "job done": only the prompt.

And when I looked in all the menus ( as Internet), It's still Nowhere. Crying or Very sad

Where should it be then?
I work with Slacko 5.4 Firefox

I see, hd install. If this didn't work, open *file* on your desktop and go up a directory. Open /opt.. is TB there?

Thanks Semme: it works now.
For some reason it is placed in the TAB Network in stead of in the TAB Internet.
Next problem is how to place it as an icon on my screen. But I sure will find the way how to do that.
