Apparently there's a headless no-gui mode: add davmail.server=true to the %.properties file: http://davmail.sourceforge.net/serversetup.html . Please consider making this the default in this package (especially when running as a service). Maybe include a default davmail.properties with this property set, or at least add a .install and print out a message upon installation about how to enable headless mode. Thank you.

I just use systemd user service provided with the package, needs to be invoked like this: systemctl --user start davmail@username.service No icon, but whatever.

A few notes for those interested.

Under gnome (with legacy tray removed) latest davmail now starts with a window and stays in the dash bar until closed.

When using TopIcons Plus, there is no window, the davmail icon appears on the desktop (but cannot be interacted with it seems), and an empty space (with the usual davmail context menu) in TopIcons Plus.

In both cases the UI style is quite different compared to the previous version.

For whatever reason starting with davmail 4.8.5 the upstream tar does not contain the SWT jar anymore, while it is still present in the upstrem repo. I tried re-adding it (https://sourceforge.net/p/davmail/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/lib/swt-4.6.3-gtk-linux-x86_64.jar?format=raw).

With this, still under TopIcons Plus, the destop icon disappears and is back (albeit in a weird manner) in TopIcon Plus. The UI style is also back to what it was.

However, when not using TopIcons Plus davmail simply is not accessible anymore (running in the background, no window visible through the dash).

Edit: removed diff since AUR comment auto-formatting is getting in the way ...

someone having luck with enabling the systemd-service?

I always have to start it manually, suspecting a missing After field? - like: After=network.target

Tested it on i3/i3bar - the icon does look ugly, but overall it seems to be working fine when started via .desktop file.

I've updated the package. The package starts fine for me from the command line, but I'm seeing issues when using the desktop file. Any patches are welcome for that issue. I'm still having issues with the tray looking bad, but that issue lies with davmail, not this package.

hyness, is there an open bug for trat/taskbar issues? If not - can you create one please? Let's see what DavMail's developer(s) say.

Davmail has removed the linux specific packages this package depended on. I have updated the PKGBUILD to use the current version but there are issues with the tray icon, I'm hesitant to release it right now. Looks like there's support for Unity and KDE. I tried this package in Cinnamon and the tray icon looks terrible and the program shows up in the taskbar all the time with a plain java icon.

I can release the package, but I don't think there is anything I can do to overcome these issues as I think they lie with changes within Davmail.

The systemd system_service script expects davmail user to exists. Your package does not create this user by default. Hence, when I try to start davmail system service in headless mode, it dies with the following errors:

$ journalctl _SYSTEM_UNIT=davmail@company.service
... davmail@company.service: Failed to determine user credentials: No such process
... davmail@company.service: Failed at step USER spawning /usr/bin/davmail: No such process

After manually adding this user,

$ useradd --system davmail

the service starts up successfully. You might consider modifying davmail.install to add this user.

I'm sorry you are still having difficulties building the package. I have been maintaining this package for several years and have not encountered this issue. If you look at the PKGBUILD, it is using the standard download url that SourceForge packages use. I think if this was a widespread issue, more people would be commenting. With that said, if you want to contribute a pull request with a better way of handling this, I'd definitely consider it
