Re: thunderbird problem: library not found

mozilla-thunderbird installed without problem (sid), but doesn't start

From the command-line I get:
/usr/lib/mozilla-thunderbird/mozilla-thunderbird-bin: error while loading
shared libraries: libxpcom.so: cannot open shared object file: No such
file or directory $

What to do ?

It looks like thunderbird requires the libxpcom.so library, but doesn't include it or "depend" on the package with it. According to this:

enjae[westk]:/home/westk> dpkg -S libxpcom
mozilla-browser: /usr/lib/mozilla/components/libxpcom_compat_c.so
mozilla-browser: /usr/lib/libxpcom_compat.so
openoffice.org-bin: /usr/lib/openoffice/program/libxpcom.so
mozilla-browser: /usr/lib/mozilla/libxpcom.so

it looks like maybe you could install mozilla-browser to get the library, and that might get you working. If this is the case, looks like a bug needs to be filed against the mozilla-thunderbird package.
