User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5a) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/0.2/thunderbird-0.2-i686-pc-linux-gtk2-gnu.tar.bz2 After unpacking the archive into the installation directory I've chosen all files were set to rwx------ permission. Since I didn't name any of my users "1000" none of them was able to do anything with the thunderbird. OK, no big problem, I just adjusted the rights correctly, so everything is allright now, but it would be nice to have it adjusted from the beginning as it used to be in version 0.1. All has been done as root. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Download Mozilla Thunderbird 0.2 2.Unpack the archive, let's say into /usr/local 3.Start it as any user Actual Results: Nothing - KDE of course could not find the executable and complained about that in a dialog. Expected Results: Thunderbird should have started. As compnent I have chosen "Build Config", because it was closest to the theme "binary installation". I know that everything is already built and configured, sorry if this led to any confusion. It is easy to work around the bug by setting the correct permission settings. I have noticed that there is a similar problem with Mozilla browser packages (Bug 189905) and there is a guess that the package might have been packed under WindowsXP and therefore the permissions are a bit puzzled when unpacked under Linux, but I don't know whether this is the clue to this thunderbird issue.
