Installing Swiftfox (64 bit Thunderbird + Lightning) under Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy

To install Swiftdove, the 64 bit optimized version of Thunderbird that includes Lightning, into Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy), you need to follow these two steps:

A) Add the swiftweasel repository to apt by adding this line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/swiftweasel gutsy multiverse

B) Update the cache and install Swiftdove:

apt-get update | apt-get install swiftdove-athlon64

Swiftdove is noticably faster, and the inclusion of Lightning is a nice bonus.
