in fact @gardotd426's argument doesn'tmake sense. neofetch has limited function without the optional dependency, mailspring has zero function without gnome-keyring.

Sorry for the late response. @gardotd in my case failed to start on the fresh install of KDE plasma. Tracking down the issue, I have also came across the same issue as linked in the @capoeira comment.

Anyway, all issues were gone when I installed gnome-keyring package on my non-gnome desktop environment.

@gardotd426 it might run, but it doesn't work:

I just uninstalled gnome-keyring and libgnome-keyring and installed mailspring, and it runs (I'm not logged into gnome right now).

So yeah, it's not a mandatory dependency. I know it's weird but mandatory dependencies are only dependencies which are required for everyone no matter what in order for the package to function. And that doesn't even mean fully function either, a good example is a package like neofetch that will ONLY display images in the terminal if you have one of the optional dependencies for images installed. Otherwise, it doesn't fully function, but they still aren't mandatory dependencies.

@grega it should only fail to start without gnome-keyring on desktop-environments that use gnome-keyring. That wouldn't be a mandatory dependency, because it wouldn't be necessary on desktop environments with other keyrings.

Hi, would be possible to move the gnome-keyring dependency from optional to mandatory, since the app fails to start if gnome-keyring is not installed?

@hodsonus: No problem! I'm subscribed to GitHub release notifications, so as soon as they put out a new version I should be able to update it relatively quickly.

@slondr thanks for the response! new to Arch and the AUR and realized that it was dependent on the upstream .deb and not the git repository shortly after commenting. thanks for being understanding :).

slondr commented on 2020-05-19 23:20

@hodsonus Until they put out another GH release (and update the upstream .deb), I don't think so.

@slondr Hi, any way that we can get another update? A bug affecting Yahoo accounts was just resolved (
