Happy New Year to all…
Can somebody explain me please, for what we need lib32-libstdc++5? What is the use of it?
I looked around in the net…but there is only dry over-technical stuff for how installing it - and the related problems during or after installations.
On this occasion I would like to pass a message or my experience with Antergos.
During some time (years / months) I got quite a lot of problems with Antergos and 2 unsolvable crashes forced me to new installations with the respective lost of data.
So last Summer I decided to swap Antergos with another distro… but luckily there was the idea to try Antergos with Cinnamon Desktop Environment - till last summer it was running with Gnome.
Since then Antergos is solid as a rock…and I have even more possibilities to adapt the system to my needs than with Gnome.
That’s all - Cheerio lads
@blaised Hi blaised - thank you for your wonderful explanations -
I think I will bookmark this thread - there are so informative posts that I can use for any kind future problems that might come.
Today is the National Day of Switzerland (God shall protect all the Nations of the World) so I am not working and I have time for tinking.
blaised, as it was on POP modus during the installation of new O/S I re-opened the accounts on POP modus - but
now as all messages are in … in the new installed Thunderbird - I will change it to IMAP.
So there is an other quick and “dirty” method, which is windows like - and I got now all the messages the new ones (although POP modus) and the old ones too.
And it goes like this:
“Elements” is the external harddisc in which thanks the help of all of you - I could copy thunderbird profile from the crashed o/s
So I opened the Thunderbird Profile directory “axq1rtr.default” copied all the files
then went to the installed Thunderbird of the new o/s system (still Antergos) and through…
… I went to the equivalent new installed Thunderbird profile and there I copied the mentioned files
During this process the system asks “Shall the files (old and new ones) be merged”? - YES
“Shall the files be replaced”? YES
That’s it - Thanks to all again - you were all very helpful and I learned a lot from you.
@ moderators - I will put this thread as Solved - if you could complete the title of this topic - with copying Thunderbird Profile from a crashed System … it would fit better to “history” of this thread.
My sincere thanks to all of you and your time replying to me…
PS. What still not works to embed black the written commands here
For the target folder - why you stop in your command … with “yourname”?
Is it because on the targetfolder the sourcefolder (last position) .thunderbird will be automatically copied?
\cp -a /path/to/backup/folder/.thunderbird /home/“yourname”\
@manuel - Thank you very much for your detailed explanation
The backupfolder / external hd has ext4 - as I am tired I will try your propositions tomorrow
thanks again - I do appreaciate it
In the meantime I was able to see the emails in normal formats - and I do know my flight codes - airlines - departure days / times uuuuff I can breath normally again… - I took screenshots
So in Thunderbird - I went to help - and then troubleshooting information
And then Open Folder
So I opened the external harddisc , where last night after chrooting to my old system I could copy /transfer
the .thunderbird file - and so I could see 1:1 the missed emails…
I did also an Import - but did not find at once the imported files
Now I am tired - but all in all the mission is fullfiled - I got the travel documents of the family…
it took me long - but I learned also a lot … also thanks to the nice people in this forum
@blaised Thanks a lot for all the info
So through terminal with the cp command … to home/user/.thunderbird the data have been transferred…
but unfortunately when I open Thunderbird Mail only the new emails are shown, which have not yet been read/downloaded - the “old” ones are not listed under “incoming emails”
cp -r path_to_my_backup/…/.thunderbird ~/
Exactly like above with … the ~/ at the end? o
So after installing the new o/s I will install Thunderbird Mail … and then do your command?
How you do it that the comm ands are black embedded?
I will do tomorrow the install - Thank you for your valuable help…
@blaised - you are exactly on spot
Is this what I did and it worked to my astonishment ☺
But I did not have a back up file / the system crashed - and I had to learn everything to get the directory from the crashed laptop
to be honest I did neither know what ~ meant - In a way a total beginner
But once I install the new o/s I would like to learn a lot of things - is easier than on chroot
Normally I use a german key board - chrooting into hd - it was only the english keyboard possible and I had always to tip around in order find the special signs uuffffff
thanks again to all
