Postby Mintnewbie on Sun Oct 14, 2007 4:35 am

I've tried to get the mint updater from various threads in the forum, but when I get to the update page and press the link, it doesn't work. It's the 1.2 update. and when I try the 1.3 it downloads and wont work :( what am I doing wrong?

Another thing, I've downloaded thunderbird ver. 2 and unpacked it. But how do I install it so it overwrites the older version? I've tried entering the folder, and all I can do is open the program. I've tried synaptic too, but it only has the 1.5 version.

Can anyone help? :)

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Add this to your repo deb
Code: Select all
http://ubuntu.iuculano.it feisty thunderbird

Then use Synaptic to refresh and install.
If you want you can add the key.
Code: Select all
wget http://ubuntu.iuculano.it/AE3BE9AA.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

It promps an error message:

The repository might be no longer available or could not be contacted because of network problems. If available an older version of the failed index will be used. Otherwise the repository will be ignored. Check your network connection and the correct writing of the repository address in the preferences.

I just added the: http://ubuntu.iuculano.it feisty thunderbird in "settings -> repositories -> new -> URI
