@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 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
@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…
Finally I got it …yeeeeessss
So now comes the next step - when install the new o/s after formatting the hard disc which file has to be imported to the new installed Thunderbird?
It should be this one I think:
A very big thank you to all of you … Now I have to take the last step = the import
I count on you…
In my case - how I the topic started - The below was the searching answer…
joekamprad said in Installing Printer MFC-J6930DW:
[[email protected] aur-brother-mfc-j6930dw]$ ls
brother-mfc-j6930dw-1.0.1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar mfcj6930dwlpr-1.0.1-0.i386.rpm PKGBUILD
sudo pacman -U brother-mfc-j6930dw-1.0.1-2-x86_64.pkg.tar
But you can install AUR BUILD also with the package manager, you need only to enable it inside settings of pamac!

Ich danke Dir vom ganzen Herzen und schlaff gut … morgen werde ich von einer grossen Sorge befreit zur Arbeit gehen…

I have to find now the “solved” button - Good Night Super Joe
