Why is gtk2 needed?
As of mailspring 1.3.0 electron 2.x is being used and mailspring should therefore solely depend on gtk3, shouldn't it?

It's in stable now. 2.28-4.

Updated to 1.4.2. Sorry for the slow update.

Fixed glibc is in testing for almost a week now.

Just install it. And the issue is basically solved.

I just created a PKGBUILD that patchelfs mailspring 1.4.1 with glibc 2.27. Mailspring runs flawlessly. See the PKGBUILD here:

The package skype-stable-bin patches automatically the binary to use glibc-2.27. This may be a good solution while the new version of glibc fixes the issues with electron. See

I've fixed my version of Mailspring with the glibc workaround but now am having a problem where Mailspring crashes if I try to download an attachment. I'm fairly new to linux so am dumber than most; any advice would be appreciated.

@jnylen, That is indeed weird. I am sorry, I'll be more careful from now on.

@jenz, Then update. 1.4.0 was uploaded 3 days ago. Not sure why you get that message.

Please check next time when you flag.

@rocka commented a PKGBUILD at Typora, which fixed it by packaging it with system electron. Could something like that be done with Mailspring?

Latest version (still requires the older glibc):
