           Summary: Errors when trying to send pictures using thunderbird
           Product: kipiplugins
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: SuSE RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-imaging kde org
        ReportedBy: yojoe schneebrett com

Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

I encountered some problems when Thunderbird 1.5 is choosen to be used as the email client when sending pictures with the digikam kipi-sendimages plugin. Maybe there is still some relation to bug 108227, when thunderbird wasn't even started.
I'm running OpenSuse 10.1 with KDE 3.5.4. The "Preparing images to send" dialog runs fine and starts Thunderbird, but it does not open a composer window with the selected pictures attached. So it just starts thunderbird but nothing else. This behavior seems not to be consistent across different machines. On one machine it works sometimes, but I couldn't figure out why.
But they all have the following output in common when digikam is run from Konsole:
Warning: unrecognized command line flag -mail
Hash Manager Error : 1
Error - could not open affix description file /usr/lib/thunderbird/components/myspell/de.aff
Failure loading aff file /usr/lib/thunderbird/components/myspell/de.aff

Maybe there have been some changes to Thunderbird 1.5 command line interface, the kipi-sendimage plugin must be adjusted to?! As far as I can judge this, Thunderbird should be called with the '-compose' option and not with the '-mail' option, shouldn't it? Or is this a thunderbird issue?
