On KDE I needed gnome-keyring to get it working.

Do a ticket at mailspring's repo.

I'm finding mailspring is acting as the default handler for text files when double clicking them in Nautilus. I presume this is because of the text/plain mimetype in the mailspring desktop file? If so, would it be possible to remove it ?

Should work fine with libgnome-keyring

It seems gconf needs to be listed as a dependency too.

It seems to need gnome-keyring. libgnome-keyring is deprecated, isn't it?

Build 1.0.3 is out. Removed libsasl2 dependency and added glibc (due to removal of libpthread) and libsecret.

1.0.3 works fine here with GMail now.

Build 1.0.3 is out which seems to fix the SSL certificate issues and the SASL issues, from the changelog here:


On Linux, Mailspring looks for your trusted SSL certificate roots in more locations, fixing the "Certificate Errors" many Fedora and ArchLinux users were seeing when linking accounts.

On Linux, Mailspring bundles SASL2 and SASL2 plugins, resolving "Authentication Error" messages that users of non-Debian Linux distros saw when the local installation of SASL2 was an incompatible version.

On Linux, Mailspring now links against libsecret, resolving intermittent "Identity missing required fields" errors that were caused by the Node bindings to libgnome-keyring's API.

According to bengotow, the link for should really point to: "/usr/share/mailspring/resources/app.asar.unpacked/". Of course, the "file exists" check that you have implemented means that those who have already installed would miss the new version of the link. I've worked around that by using `pacman -Qoq /usr/`. See here:

EDIT: Even with this change, I still get SSL errors. :(
