UPDATE: BOUNTY: Build me a Mozilla Thunderbird extension for cash

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
I have 2 test machines that I have installed various recent Ubuntu =
builds. Here are the results:

1) 11.10 is pure shit and breaks either the video driver or the window =
manager or who knows what???
2) 11.04 is useable and ok once Unity is trashed, however Evolution will =
not play back the .WAV files even though it gives me a play button.
3) 10.10 is essentially the same result as 11.04 without the need to =
remove Unity. Evolution .wav playback is still broken.
4) 10.04 works perfectly AND .wav file play back perfectly inside of =
Evolution. HOWEVER if I allow update manager to download and install all =
recommended updates Video gets a dorked up same as in 11.10.

So I can have what I want if I run 10.10 and never update, OR somebody =
more linuxy than me can help me figure out what is breaking the =
video/window manager.

So it seems the BOUNTY is no longer necessary.

A big thank you to Jonathan Calloway for bringing my attention back to =
Evolution and testing various solutions until I got it to work.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ I think the later versions were actually based on Debian more than Ubuntu. I recall a move away from Ubuntu repos and upstreams a while ago for Mint. On Feb 28, 2012 10:52 PM, "Stephen Haywood" wrote:
