[SOLVED] email client?

Post#1 by Bootlegger_Bob » 17 May 2017, 03:14

Hi,
I need an email client but all the ones I've tried won't start up (Sylpheed, Claws and Trojitá). Downloaded, merged, activated, moved to modules and tried a restart but alas, nothing works.
I'm running the system from USB and as root.

Can anyone give me some hints as to what I'm doing wrong?

- Bob

Hi,
got Sylpheed working by downloading it from ponce. Found some posts here that said that slackonly didn't work properly because the hoster is compiling. which is probably why I couldn't get the client to work.
All is working now and I've got my thumbdrive running like I want :Yahoo!:
