We’ve already created step-by-step guides on how to use Cryptoucan™ for many operating systems and email client – Thunderbird on Ubuntu was the first series of our instructional videos and blog posts. It’s time to revisit this series and make it complete and even better than before!
As usual, we’ll kick things off with the installation process of all the necessary software for flawless functioning of Cryptoucan™.
We need to install these two pieces of software:

This software is best to be installed using Synaptic Package Manager that’s already installed to your computer. If you have no idea how to get to this package manager, which may be a problem since you may have a different desktop environment, you can easily look up the step-by-step process for your specific environment on Google.
In our case, we’re going to click the menu button in the bottom left corner of the window and type Synaptic Package Manager to the search box at the top.
And now for the installation:
You’ll notice that the software package appeared in the results list with white checkbox left from it:

Installation window will pop up
Picture 2: Installer of scdaemon
You may notice that the white checkbox changed its color to green. This signals that the software was successfully installed.
To install this software, you need to open Thunderbird first. If you don’t have it installed yet, proceed with the same steps as in the installation of scdaemon.
Once you open Thunderbird, follow these steps:
New tab will open
Picture 3: Extensions tab with search box
Another tab will open, now containing results of your search
Picture 4: List of search results
Pop up window will appear
When the installation is done, notification bar saying that Enigmail has been successfully installed will appear at the top of the page. You can see it also appeared in the Add-ons Manager tab.
