I was using TB 5.0 then the system requested to upgrade to v 6.0 I tried to installed from the .tar.bz2 file, extracted the files but was not be able to make it run. Then tried to install it through Synaptic Package manager and Ubuntu Software center but I can't find Thunderbird. Is not under "applications" "internet" (I did tried"Edit Menus") etc. I can see at Synaptic Package manager that it is installed but can't find it.
