    Replace Thunderbird

    772452
      is it possible to uninstall Thunderbird on Sol11 11/11? what is eligible to replace it?

      the reason that i want to replace Thunderbird is that it seems exceptionally buggy; it was written by the same people who wrote the p2p client Miro for Windows; Miro was so exasperatingly buggy that i chuckled when i ripped it out.

          Yes, you can uninstall Thunderbird. And you can replace it with Evolution.

            please delineate the procedure: is pkgrm the appropriate mechanism; how do i find where thunderbird is located?

              pkgrm is the procedure for the older versions of Solaris. With Solaris 11, the command to uninstall packages is "pkg uninstall". To uninstall thunderbird, you should run this command :

              # pkg uninstall thunderbird

              To determine where is Thunderbird installed, you can executed this both command :

              # which thunderbird

              or

              # pkg contents thunderbird

              I would recommend you to read the contents of this URL to learn how to manage packages on Solaris 11
