  • Set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
    • For the csh or tcsh shells, use
      setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/site/lib
    • All other shells, use
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  • Type the command /cs/thunderbird/thunderbird
  • If a window appears warning that patches are not installed, open a CSEEIT trouble ticket with the machine's hostname to have the machine set up to run Thunderbird.
  • Include the /cs/thunderbird directory in your path.
    • In your .cshrc file, add the following line:
      path = ( /cs/thunderbird $path )
    • Log out, then back in. (only need to do this the first time)
    • Type thunderbird on the command line.
