Mozilla Thunderbird email application

Thunderbird is a free and open source email, newsfeed, chat, and calendaring client, that’s easy to set up and customize. One of the core principles of Thunderbird is the use and promotion of open standards - this focus is a rejection of our world of closed platforms and services that can’t communicate with each other. We want our users to have freedom and choice in how they communicate.

Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install Thunderbird

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa), Linux Mint 19.2 (Tina) and Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia). You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.

Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd

Either restart your machine, or log out and in again, to complete the installation.
