Great thx, for the update feels great not to depend upon snapd / apparomour again albeit. snapd works out of the (sand)box it's still unneeded ressources.

thanks for maintaining.

I added --no-sandbox to the menu executable and it worked...

so in /usr/share/applications/bluemail.desktop I changed to Exec=bluemail --no-sandbox %U and that worked. Wasn't sure if adding --disable-gpu-sandbox alone in bluemail-flags.conf would work.

But changing the executable did.

I contacted their support asking about the Electron update, and they said they have forwarded the message to the product team. Now just wait until we get a response (or a new version updating Electron).

I use Wayland as well, and using Ozone prevented the app to crash but it exhibited many glitches, sometimes it would not even display (like a transparent or hidden window). Only --disable-gpu-sandbox worked for me. Yes, probably an issue with the old Electron. If they could update the version it would be great!

This is probably a problem with older versions of Electron on Xorg, as the app still uses an old version of Electron (v13.1.2 from my research). I couldn't reproduce the crash in Wayland while exporting the flags --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland.

We could ask them to update their Electron version, since Electron v13 has been EOLed 1 year ago.

Thanks for maintaining the package. For some reason, it stopped starting on my Intel + Nvidia device with the error:] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.

and it only worked after I added --disable-gpu-sandbox to bluemail-flags.conf after I've read @alissonlauffer comment. Another app issue about a similar problem:

I just updated the package to follow Electron flags from ~/.config/bluemail-flags.conf, just like other Electron-based programs do.

I also wanted to move from the Snap package to .deb or .rpm (to make PKGBUILD simpler, since it wouldn't include Snap stuff and would include resized icons by default), but the .deb and .rpm packages seem to be a bit outdated: While the Snap package is at version 1.131.13, the .deb and .rpm packages are still at version 1.131.4 (version from 1 month ago).

Not wanting to use Thunderbird and after a failed attempt with Kmail and Mailstring, this one worked flawlessly. I am on Manjaro.

Somethink went wrong with the new version. It is slowly and no longer usable. I try to downgrade

Awesome dude, this is my favorite email client. I am so happy you made this aur so I don't have to use a snap.
