Noobie here, bet you're sick of us lot. I have searched around the forum for this issue and found some stuff but I'm still struggling. If the answer is in this forum already, i do apologise.
Right here goes, as the subject mentions I'm trying to install thunderbird 3. I've downloaded it as a tar.bz2 file and placed it in src folder within my home folder.
I've done a tar -jxvf thunderbird-3.0.1.tar.bz2 which obviously created another thunderbird folder with all the files in.
I've changed into that directory. I've tried ./configure and I get the following error
./configure: No such file or directory
I have build-essentials installed btw.
I've had a look at the README.txt file provided and all it says is
information about installing, running and configuring Thunderbird
including a list of known issues and troubleshooting information,
refer to: http://getthunderbird.com/releases/
However, I still can't find any help at that link.
Can anyone help me? Sorry if it's a real simple issue.
