    Unhappy Thunderbird Install problem


    You have to forgive me. Been on windows since the start and now looking into changing over to linux so still finding my way around.
    Downloaded Thunderbird on to my desktop for my email (sorry using Mandriva 2007 spring with KDE) extracted the files ok using
    'tar xvf thunderbird-2.0.0.0.tar.gz'
    navigated my way to the folder
    'peter@localhost thunderbird '
    but the ./configure command just come back ever time with
    'no such file or directory'
    So I'm in the wrong place or there is sometihing I should have done.
    This is the 1st time I have tried to install anything on linux so totally lost.....HELP!

    I think you just have to uncompress the archive. Check here
