The PKGBUILD is now fixed for coreutils 9.0-1 that was causing build to fail. I really appreciate Humandoodlebug to bring this bug into our attention.

I'm getting an error in the package() stage. Seems to be caused by the line chmod -R go-w "${pkgdir}"/usr, which tries to recursively change the permissions on the symlink usr/bin/mailspring. In my testing, this is fine when the symlink is directly specified in the command but returns error status when it is found through recursion. Permissions on symlinks aren't really a thing anyway, so perhaps it's best to split the line in two like this:

chmod go-w "${pkgdir}"/usr "${pkgdir}"/usr/bin
chmod -R go-w "${pkgdir}"/usr/share

EDIT: This appears to be a new change in behaviour of chmod between coreutils 8.32-1 and 9.0-1. This seems to have broken a few other packages too, e.g. spotify. Downgrading to 8.32-1 fixes it, but that's probably not a good long-term solution.

I switched to Manjaro from Ubuntu because of the snaps and bloat, but snaps have creeped into Manjaro the past few major Gnome updates. So I am now using the auto updating snap from There are Arch and Manjaro instructions.

package out of date. I downloaded .deb package from official site and used debtap for converting .deb for arch linux package and worked.

I do agree, since couple of days my Mailspring is asking for update... would be nice to update this repo.

Version 1.9.2 has been released. It would be good if there is an update.

@FabioLolix ouch! That's terrible. So... yeah... bin package it is for now.

Building mailspring from source is a PITa, for various reasons; like it need to use GCC5.
