Novice company C# programmer, building systems since 2013.

I am also a PHP and ActionScript in my spare time, maintaining several websites and keeping them moving along (hopefully) smoothly. I am also an avid CSS+HTML designer, dabbling in the world of pre-compiled CSS and the new mysteries of HTML5.

I guess you could say I am a Jack of all trades.

comment Thunderbird Missing from Messaging menu & Dash
Other applications seem to appear fine, it is only Thunderbird that does not appear. I tried those three and none of the solutions worked, permissions are all good and deleting the cache made no difference (albeit slowing it down, presumably rebuilding it). It does make a good point that I should make however is that I did upgrade from 12.10 to 13.04, seeing as that seems to have broken some others I wonder if that makes any difference.

comment Thunderbird Missing from Messaging menu & Dash
Yeah that was my first course of action, I simply got the same problem. Strangely when it was uninstalled it did not appear in the recommended section of the Applications lens of the dash, but in the Ubuntu Store it appeared. Not sure if that makes any difference. And no I tested this with both the home lens and the applications lens, I didn't touch any of the others in the tests.

I'm pretty sure dash is case-insensitive, tried it anyway and it still didn't appear. I also tried the command you gave me and nothing has changed.

comment Cannot install ia32-lib package
Nevermind, clearly this is just one of those hard to fix problems that comes with every release (usually it is hardware related, software is new to me). I'll just install a 32-bit version instead. I hope a solution is found soon for all those with 64-bit, I believe in you folk!

comment Cannot install ia32-lib package
I installed a 64 bit version of Ubuntu, as every time I install via Wubi it will always grab the amd64. I'm not sure if it is worth getting the 32-bit version instead since the 64 bit has a few compatibility problems especially like this.
