Square Bigger UI fonts in Thunderbird

Thunderbird's User Interface uses tiny fonts by default, too tiny for my eyes. To increase Thunderbird's default UI font size, just put a file called userChrome.css in the 'chrome' directory in your profile (on Mac your profile is found in ~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/<some weird string>.default/, you might have to create the 'chrome' directory if it's not there), with the right kind of css code. Here is the one I'm using.

Square [desktop-example.jpg] Debian on an Apple PowerBook G3 (Wallstreet)

Here are some very valuable resources I used to install GNU/Linux Debian (Sarge) on an Apple PowerBook G3 Wallstreet.

To get the text console and XFree86-4 work on my PowerBook I use the following kernel args in BootX: video=atyfb:vmode:14,cmode:15 with "No Video Driver" unchecked. (My video card is identified as ATI 3D Rage LT Pro (rev dc) by lspci.)

In /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 the most tricky part was to remove the "Modes" line of the "Display" subsection.

Note that you normally don't want to use my XF86Config-4 file directly, as it also contains options for the Apple French keyboard. If you do have a French keyboard, you probably can use this file as such, but you'll need to install the keyboard symbol mapping file /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/fr-shapiro-new from Marc Shapiro as the /etc/X11/xkb/symbols/fr shipped with Debian is currently broken. (See Debian Bug report #157170 for more details.)

The beautiful background image you can see on the above screen-shot was taken by my brother. If you want to use it as a wallpaper too you can get it here.
