Icedove – Error: [Exception… “update.locale file doesn’t exist

June 13, 2011 Leave a comment

I had the following error in my icedove error console.

Error: [Exception… “update.locale file doesn’t exist in either the XCurProcD or GreD directories” nsresult: “0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)” location: “JS frame :: file:///usr/lib/icedove/components/nsUpdateService.js :: getLocale :: line 608” data: no]
Source File: file:///usr/lib/icedove/components/nsUpdateService.js
Line: 608

Followed the instructions here.

touch /usr/lib/icedove/update.locale

The error went away. Will keep monitoring though.

The error has not come back. Icedove works like a charm. So I guess the “fix” worked.
