I did an apt-get upgrade on a sid box just now, and now there are a lot of broken apps.

Yep, that fixed everything! Thanks, Steve!

Why did it fix everything?  I don't even have gsfonts-other installed
and I still can't get the Debian packaged thunderbird to run.


I've been using thunderbird downloaded from mozilla.org, and unpacked to /usr/local/thunderbird, with a symlink at /usr/local/bin/thunderbird pointing to /usr/local/thunderbird/thunderbird.

As part of my upgrade this morning, I also installed mozilla-thunderbird from the Debian repositories. This version of thunderbird ("mozilla-thunderbird &") errors out with:
westk[@westek]:/home/westk:> mozilla-thunderbird
find: /usr/lib/mozilla-thunderbird/startup-hooks.d/*: No such file or directory

and then just dies. So I'd say there's still some brokenness in sid's version. I don't know what the fix is for that.

I've gone back to using Mozilla for now; although I like thunderbird and firebird, they both need just a little more polish before they replace the old monolithic Mozilla for me.But when I do use thunderbird, as implied above, I just use the non-sid version.
