Description:

Tired of searching a SIMPLE Servicemenu to just attach any file (or file group) to a mail in Thunderbird, I decided to write my own service.

If you use Mandriva or OpenSuSE, put it under:
~/.kde4/share/kde4/services

On Fedora and Kubuntu Oneiric under:
~/.kde/share/kde4/services

If other, I think the correct path is something like:
~/.kde4/share/apps/dolphin/services

If you want the Thunderbird icon, you should edit the line "Icon" like this "Icon=/usr/lib/thunderbird/chrome/icons/default/default16.png". If you use 64bits version, you should look in /usr/lib64/thunderbird_version/chrome/icons/default/default16.png.

It is fully proven to work in a 64bits system, KDE 4.5, TB 3.0.7. Since the last modifications, i don't know if it's still working on 32bits systems, please report your experiences. PLEASE ALWAYS report thunderbird version, system architecture and distro.


Should work!


PS: Don't forget to try my other servicemenu for compressing before sending

Get this service delisted from the search performed by Dophin's "Download new services" feature. It is NOT directly installable in this manner, so it should NOT be listed there.

Works great and I like that.

Here are two comments:
- For the icon I use the path (64bit system):
/usr/lib/thunderbird/chrome/icons/default/default16.png
The lib64 folder don't exists.
- I think "Als Anhang mit Thunderbird verschicken" is the better German translation.

Ciao Roman

Any solution???

Por lo demás, excelente opción para quienes nos gusta KDE y thunderbird.

Using Arch+KDE 4.7.3 works fine.
I edit the file and change the latest line to:
Icon=/usr/lib/thunderbird/chrome/icons/default/default16.png

Because my thunderbird is 32bit not 64.

The file with my little modification:
http://paste.desdelinux.net/paste/64

I mentioned this contribution in my blog, I hope you do not mind:

Siéntete libre de usarlo en tu blog y redistribuirlo dónde quieras ;)

También añadí tu opción para el ícono de 32 bits de Thunderbird. Lo que sí, ahora habría que editar el archivo .deskop y eliminar la línea correspondiente. Puedes explicar eso en tu blog también (que a todo esto, me pareció muy interesante para usuarios noveles y para avanzados también).

Saludos!

Hi,

Thanks for this work. In Mandriva 2011, Dolphin, the line that works for multiple files is:
Exec=thunderbird -compose "attachment='$(echo %F | sed 's/\\ \\//,\\/\\//g')'"

If you wish to have Brazilian Portuguese, add:
Name[pt_BR]=Enviar arquivo(s) como anexo(s)

Best wishes.

Hi,
if you are completely new to linux, you will have to learn some basics before. Then, on shell run "kde4-config --path services". It will say you where to put the .desktop files. Copy the file in this directory and restart Dolphin. It will vary form distribution to distribution, but it should be something like: ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/

Tell me if it worked. Good luck!

Nice servicemenu :) I don't use Thunderbird, but my dad does :)

The Dutch translation is:
"Voeg toe als bijlage aan Thunderbird"

[nl] is the suffix, or, well like [br] and [fr], [nl] is the Dutch one.
