Okay, so only after 3 failed attempts at installing enigmail did I look up “enigmail Thunderbird” in search engines.

I need the one exactly matching my version of Thunderbird and Linux platform.

After that it gets simple. You think.

Just don’t use the Wizard for generating the private/public key pair. The bar in the generation window of the wizard does not work and that means you have NO idea whether something is happening at all. The generation of the key pair can take up to ten minutes … and apparently some aren’t even done after twenty minutes.

Tested, and found guilty of working properly.
