Hi there,

i have a strange problem. I merely did an fsck to check my partition and now my thunderbird does not start anymore.
Indeed, i don't think it has to do something with the fsck stuff. However, when i put "thunderbird" in the shell and enter, no output is displayed. Nothing happens. I dont know where i could start digging for the error.

here the output:
Code:

mat@localhost ~ $ /usr/bin/thunderbird
mat@localhost ~ $


EDIT: Ok, it seems that /usr/bin/thunderbird is empty. I dont know why but my expectation is that i have to reinstall everything. Maybe there was a corruption or defect on my harddisk !?

Did you do the fsck with the disk/partition mounted?
BTW /usr/bin/thunderbird is a symlink to /usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird.
