> I tried it. It did not work. And what does this mean ? You do have a backup and copy over doesn't work or you don't have a backup ?
you should be more specific, cause nobody knows what's currently up with your box ! if you got a backup: =============== do you have the *elder* files ~/.thunderbird/profiles.ini and ~/.thunderbird/installs.ini, too ? if so my profiles.ini looks like this (cat ~/.thunderbird/profiles.ini): [Profile0] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=hzy3mb56.default Default=1 [General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2 [Install3DDF446CE6CB1A45] Default=hzy3mb56.default my installs.ini looks like this (cat ~/.thunderbird/installs.ini): [3DDF446CE6CB1A45] Default=hzy3mb56.default - I currently don't know what this files is for - ls -al ~/.thunderbird/ : drwx------. 3 ron ron 4096 7. Okt 19:30 . drwx------. 19 ron ron 4096 4. Okt 22:28 .. drwx------. 7 ron ron 4096 11. Okt 08:31 hzy3mb56.default -rw-r--r--. 1 ron ron 45 7. Okt 19:30 installs.ini -rw-r--r--. 1 ron ron 166 7. Okt 19:30 profiles.ini hzy3mb56.default is a directory and the name of *my* profile. normally under that directory lives thunderbird (mails, calendars, adressbook, settings, etc.) - "normally" means NO DAV, etc. - you need to fill that directory with *your* elder contents from your backup !!! your profile name is different and needs to be exchanged with your *elder* profile name in the files profiles.ini and installs.ini (see above Path= and Default=) ! also important user rights and ownership: rights: chmod 700 ~/.thunderbird/*.default (assuming your elder profile name ends on ".default") chmod 644 ~/.thunderbird/*.ini ownership: run the following command as user chown -R <your-user-name>.<your-group-name> ~/.thunderbird "your-group-name" is usually the same as "your-user-name" and in my case the command is: chown -R ron.ron ~/.thunderbird thunderbird should *NOT* run during the whole above work !!! please report ! _______________________________________________ users mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to users-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org Fedora Code of Conduct: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/project/code-of-conduct/ List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines List Archives: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
