This looks good and easy, but it does not work! When I type in the first command, I get back command not found, so I’m stuck. For some reason Ubuntu loads only Thunderbird 3 and I want TB6. Any ideas?
type without any mistake
@Hugh – do as Admin says and it will work fine.
Initially, I simply copied and pasted the commands from web page to Terminal – this did not work as it included some spurious strings.
By TYPING the commands MANUALLY, everything worked fine.
