Mozilla Thunderbird is back in Debian GNU/Linux

history in Debian GNU/Linux is

icedove – long live Thunderbird. The Debian developers have opted again for Thunderbird icedove instead of in . Actually, it was always the same in green, but in 2006, there were problems with the logos (brand protection) and that’s what was called the fork in life.

also the corresponding packages are appropriately modified. Was so lightning from the iceowl-extension back .

folder of the user profile contained $HOME/.icedove so far and for Thunderbird, this is of course $HOME/.thunderbird. The wrapper scripts / usr/bin/thunderbird caters to developers that chews. You should have a backup of the folder just in case ~/.icedove and ~/.config/mimeapps.list file should be backed up if any.

at the moment, the developers are looking more testers.

Linux Mint blog you can find , that there should be Betsy in the coming week-new ISO images for Linux Mint Debian Edition 2.

as the developers continue to work to improve the cinnamon spices and to make it compatible with the APIs from Google, Facebook or GitHUB. The whole section should be placed on front man.

Bluetooth in Linux Mint will remain 18.2 better. File transfers via OBEX should work without any further action. This should facilitate this kind of transfer between device X and Linux Mint. As well, there is a way to change the Bluetooth host name for the computer via GUI. There is a cinnamon applet that applet is similar to other status. The developers have released screenshots.

the Dark Mod 2.0.5

the dark mod is one of my favorite games on Linux. It is the gameplay thief, but with the Doom 3 engine. Who doesn’t, should miss it. It doesn’t cost anything. According to an official announcement , among other things, the performance has been improved. Who wants to know the changes in detail, can lead to the changelog to heart. There is the game and relevant missions in the download section of the project page. Even though the dark mod is somewhat older, an unconditional recommendation. The atmosphere and slow instead of shopping are just amazing. I already loved but also at the time thief.

who like the game, who can vote on steam Greenlight my , so that the dark mod permanent will be included in the catalogue.
