@dbalan please use pkgver= directly, _pkgver is uneeded and you have removed the previous packager from the credits

updpkgsums works perfectly for me! Thanks a lot!

@ezekielnin - That's a good question. Once you update the version in the PKGBUILD, you need to update the packagesums for that new package.

Here's how you do it: Update package version in PKGBUILD Generate new checksums with: (of course you don't include the $ in the command)

$ updpkgsums

Test install

$ makepkg -si


$ makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO

And you should be all set.

@kerwin : newbie question : what do you mean update dpkg sums? If I clone the git, then makepkg -si, I still get version 1.5.3. Thank you for clarifying this. (again noob here)

same script that I build Mailspring 1.5.4 can work ,so only need to update dpkg sums then it work!

You may wish to investigate if Mailspring 1.5.4 really needs the copies of libEGL and libGLESv2 that it now bundles in /usr/share/mailspring/swiftshader.

Also, shouldn't this technically be a -bin package, since it installs from pre-built binaries packaged for Debian? This name should be reserved for building the package from source.

In KDE wayland gnome-keyring-daemon is not starting. Anyone facing the same problem?

@now-im Added libappindicator-gtk3 as an optdependency.

now-im commented on 2018-11-30 13:26

libappindicator-gtk3 should be added as an optional dependency as KDE needs it to show system tray icon. Even in the preference, it is mentioned.

Is that only me, or mailspring has issues with glibc compat? I get a lot of core dumps (one every 10-15mn) due to what appears to be glibc compatibility. Some seems to have minor effects, other results in freezing the interface. The whole thing is making mailspring essentially unusable.

I have tried to link mailspring to glibc2.27, but that fails because some other library that mailspring is using are requiring 2.28, and I didn't have the time to investigate further.

Just wondering if I am the only one. Also, it seems to me that this is the (almost) first occurrence in which archlinux rolling release system has shown a drawback.
