missing gmail, movemail and rss account
Last modified: 2008-02-11 04:04:25 EST
Version : thunderbird-184.108.40.206-1.fc7
When creating a new account only mail and newsgroup types are available.
Gmail : gmail.rdf is present in /isp/en-US, so Gmail account only available in
Moving this file to /isp/ make it available in other langages.
Movemail : copying movemail.rdf from sources (/dist/bin/isp) to /isp works
Rss : copying rss.rdf from sources (/dist/bin/isp) to /isp works
This files are present in official mozilla.org build :
$ ls -R isp
fr movemail.rdf rss.rdf SpamAssassin.sfd SpamPal.sfd
This files are the same in all languages.
happens for me, too..
$ LANG=C thunderbird
shows gmail.. though rss-feed account type is not visible at all

Screenshot of Thunderbird "Create New Account" window
The rss option is missing on my Thunderbird installation as well. Thunderbird is
the vanilla one installed from the repository with no bells and whistles
Steps to reproduce:
1. yum install thunderbird
3. "File" > "New" > "Account"
4. Notice the "RSS" option is missing
Thunderbird version 220.127.116.11
Linux localhost.localdomain 18.104.22.168-91.fc7 #1 SMP Thu Sep 27 20:47:39 EDT 2007

Please see the screenshot previously attached
As the reporter mentioned, running the following command to copy the rss.rdf
file on my system rectified the problem:
sudo cp /usr/lib64/thunderbird-22.214.171.124/defaults/isp/rss.rdf

I don't seem to be able to reproduce with F8
I certainly can! See comment #8 above - and as I said the fix is trivial. And,
no, I can't reopen - only the submitter or administrator can do that...
[morgan@morgansmachine ~]$ rpm -q thunderbird
As a possible explanation of why movemail function may have been disabled -
there's a bug in T'bird that prevents it going off-line when the movemail
function is included:
