Remove Thunderbird - removes mint-meta-debian-mate?

Postby dwainehead on Mon Oct 08, 2012 8:02 pm

I don't understand why all the other things provided by mint-meta-debian-mate can't live without Thunderbird?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

removing TB will only remove the metapackage (mint-meta-debian-mate in this situation) and not the app/lib that you installed with it.
