I am trying to get the External Editor extension for thunderbird to work, so that I can use Emacs to compose emails. I haven't had much luck in getting this to work. Can anyone describe the steps they used to make this work. I think that my first problem is that the external editor plugin itself is not working, as I cannot even get it to work with gedit.
- Ubuntu 11.10
- Emacs 23
- Not sure which version of External Editor to use
- The latest Thunderbird from the main repositories
