    Download the thunderbird package from mozilla.com, extract it and click on the icon named thunderbird in the extracted directory. You need to make sure you have libsdtc++5 installed in order for thunderbird to work.

    Its a library that is needed by some packages e.g. Firefox, RealPlayer, Adobe Reader etc. You install it by doing
    Code:
    #urpmi libsdtc++5
