I have to configure thunderbird with lightning addon. From what I read, lightning 0.9 no longer supports thunderbird 3 (or vice versa). Therefore, I would like to install thunderbird 2. I’ve tried several ways, but always I get the 3.0 or 3.0b version. Can anybody help me instal thunderbird 2 ? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
Index of /repositories/mozilla:/legacy/openSUSE_11.2
Contains Thunderbird 2.x.
Short how-to in a terminal;
su (it will ask for your root password)
zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla:/legacy/openSUSE_11.2/mozilla:legacy.repo
zypper ref (accept key when it asks, permanently with a key)
zypper in MozillaThunderbird=22.214.171.124
Again I put a suggestion in to try evolutions or kontacts calendar applications, I have left lightning behind because of them.
I have thunderbird 3 working on Ubuntu 9.10 with Lightning. I use the tar ball from the mozilla site with MR Tech addon. The MR Tech allows me to override version limit and Lightning works fine.
It may not work with the repo rpm, of course.
