how about in ~/.thunderbird/profiles.ini...

Code: Select all
[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1
Path=6m1rua8n.default
Default=1


Path= is what you may wish to change.

or...
Code: Select all
find `pwd` -name 6m1rua8n.default2 -type d -exec mv 6m1rua8n.default {} \;


or
open your file manager and hit Ctrl+h to show hidden files and directories.
Navigate to .thunderbird and rename it with F2

SOLVED Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded.

SOLVED
In fact I went through the File commands and found the mv file1 file2

So I entered "mv 6m1rua8n.default2 6m1rua8n.default " and my problem was solved .
(I'm presently trying to learn the basis of Linux ; and I run too fast to the forums).

In fact my real problem is : having a dual boot Windows 7 / Linux mint, I'm trying to import my thunderbird accounts, mail addresses, ... from Windows to Linux.

Thanks very much for your quick answer and help.
