    Open a terminal type

    thunderbird

    if it starts it's installed

    You can create shortcut launcher for it in the start menu using the
    menu editor

    right click on the start button - choose menu editor
    navigate to the section Internet - Email and add it there
    the command is just as you typed before - thunderbird
    you should be able to fetch the icon by clicking on the icon button and
    search thru

    I'm having the same/similar problem.

    The installed application (not Thunderbird in this case) appears in the
    menu editor in the sub menus, but I can't get that sub menu to appear in
    the menu proper. There doesn't appear to be a box saying "display this
    item", and expanding the tree in Menu Editor and saving the changes has
    no effect, so I don't know what else to try...

    I noticed that the sub-menu does not show when it only contains one
    item. Therefore it puts the item up a menu level. E.g. I have only one
    email program so it doesn't show the email sub-menu, it just puts it in
    the internet menu even though in the editor it is in the email sub-menu.
    Is that happening for you?

    I can't think what you have done.

    Tell us, are you guys using kde3 or kde4. Not that it should matter,
    because I have no issues with the menu in either. Though once or twice I
    have had to edit it in kde4 for items that appear in kde3 but not in 4.

    If you have kde4 - is it 4.1.3 Factory??

    In my case I'm using kde4 and it took for me to reboot the system for
    the changes to take effect maybe reseting the X server would have done
    it.. what are the combo keys for reseting the X server?, I've tried
    crtl+alt+backspace and is a no go!

    Try holding the Ctrl+Alt and hitting the backspace twice.
