If I connect to my VPN and then try to launch Thunderbird it will fail. If launched from the cli it returns
Quote:
(process:12124): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed
No protocol specified
No protocol specified
Error: cannot open display: :0


If I launch Thunderbird before connecting to a VPN it will start successfully. But once I connect to a VPN I can't send or receive any emails.

This has always been the case for as far back as I have had my box but only just now decided to tackle this issue. Any ideas?

Code:
[I] mail-client/thunderbird

Hi Budoka,

How do you open the VPN? The fact that you can not connect to the X server seems odd.

Can you try the following?:
1.-Connect to the VPN
2.-In a terminal where you have your normal user type:
Code:
xhost +

3.-Execute thunderbird from the CLI.
