Thunderbird always updated to the latest version

One more time I’ve tried to update Thunderbird using ubuntuzilla, but everytime i’ve experienced any trouble.

So I’ve decided to keep updated Thunderbird directly using ppa launchpad repository.  In this way Thunderbird is updated to the latest development version.  The use of these repositories is not recommended for those who have no intension to take risks by using an unstable version of the program.

If you want to update Thunderbird you have to proceed adding this repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main

deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main

If you want to add and authenticate easily this ppa you can execute:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa

Then to update Thunderbird you have to execute:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Or to install it execute:

sudo apt-get install thunderbird

Then you have to change launcher into menu from “thunderbird %u” to “thunderbird.ubuntu %u”.
