Is upstream still being maintained? It seems to be using a deprecated API for comms with Outlook, resulting in it being unable to login (not using API version 2). At least for me.

Shouldnt the exec line include the "-server" option? Otherwise the GUI opens

Hi, I'm a bit confused by the different providers for java-openjfx. Does anyone have a recommendation on which to install? I've been using java-openjfx, which seems to work fine. I presumed this was the most up-to-date option? However, the package only has 4 votes, so presumably many people don't go this option. Also, it does take a while to build. java-openjfx-bin seems to be out of date, and similarly low on votes. jdk/jre 7 is no longer maintained upstream. Maybe jdk/jre 8? I'm not really sure what the other options are.

Ok so I finally figured out. I changed the /etc/davmail/ path to my own home .config directory in the systemd unit file. Looks like the ProtectHome option prevented my own from being read or something like that (and made it not work for me). So yeah, very stupid thing on my side, took multiple evenings to figure out. But at least it works now :)

I had to use this one-liner to replace the hardcoded /usr/share/java/javafx-x.jar OpenJDK JavaFX paths in the init script with the Arch symlinked /usr/lib/jvm/default/lib/javafx.x.jar paths in order to use interactive authentication (otherwise it failed with an "unable to load javafx" error and drops back to an annoying manual authentication mode):

cat /usr/bin/davmail | perl -pe "s/\/usr\/share\/java/\/usr\/lib\/jvm\/default\/lib/g,s/javafx-/javafx\./g" | sudo tee /usr/bin/davmail

I'm not 100% familiar with the correct way to handle Java libraries, but I'm guessing this should probably be made into a patch for this package as /usr/share/java seems to be a Debian/Ubuntu thing.

EDIT: It looks like swt is in /usr/share/java, so this oneliner probably breaks SWT support.

How do you run service?
And what errors do you get?

I use system service.

dxwil commented on 2023-03-25 16:14 (UTC)

I cannot get davmail to work through systemd. Which unit file should I use, user or system? Does anyone have any experience with this. Thanks

To install 6.1.0 version (rev 3423) you can just edit some lines in PKGBUILD like this:

Would it be possible for someone to update this for davmail 6.1.0. Thanks

For me the O365Interactive method does not work on Java 19. In fact, I had to downgrade to Java 8, and specifically jdk8 (Oracle's Java) to get the embedded JavaFX browser to show up. That old version requires the in-tree swt, or it raises.

Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/eclipse/swt/internal/gtk/OS has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 55.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0

Probably these need upstream fixes but this project is not very actively maintained.
