Install Thunderbird in Debian 8

Lets begin by downloading Thunderbird.

Visit the official Thunderbird site and click on Download button.

This will download a file like thunderbird-xx.x.x.tar.bz2 where “x” is the current version of Thunderbird.

Lets move that file in /usr directory.

sudo mv ~/Downloads/thunderbird-xx.x.x.tar.bz2 /usr/

Go to /usr and decompress Thunderbird:

cd /usr

sudo tar xvf thunderbird-xx.x.x.tar.bz2

Remove the compressed file:

sudo rm thunderbird-xx.x.x.tar.bz2

lets create the launcher. Press the “Super Key” (this one is located on your keyboard between “ctrl” and “alt”. In windows world is also called “Windows Key”)

then type “main menu”
