Thanks @Kr1ss for creating the request on isync-git and for explaining the issue :)

Hello @mannp,

since isync is a mandatory dependency, there isn't any way to define alternatives, like "depend on either package-A or package-B". The correct way would be that isync-git "provides" isync, which it doesn't.

I left the maintainer a comment on the package's page.

That said, I'm not really sure about this package currently, since the maintainer themselves have flagged it as "out of date" nearly two years ago.

EDIT/ The maintainer already made the change. You should now be able to use isync-git as the isync dependency for mutt-wizard-git.

Thanks for the build. I wondered if there was a reason isync-git couldn't be an alternate dependency to isync especially in this mutt wizard git build?

There have been breaking changes to the mw CLI.

If you are upgrading from mutt-wizard-git-r846 or earlier, please consult the README and the manual mw(1).

I've incorporated this PR for the time being, until it's merged upstream.

The macro should be functional now.

EDIT It's now fixed upstream.

I guess this might be the commit that introduced that bug @taylor85345.

This was introduced by this PR.

If you refer to this repo, then the latest commit was over a year ago. Luke moved the development to Github quite a while ago.

Or is there another (newer) one on Gitlab maybe ?

Anyways, if there's a bug concerning the notmuch macro, I'd appreciate if you'd open an issue. Thx !

Hi @Kr1ss, I just realized that I was seeing the Gitlab page for this, not Github. The Gitlab page has a functional macro, the the Github version seems to be broken. Will submit an issue on Github

@taylor85345 thx for your comment. Since this is a -git package, it always builds the latest upstream trunk (master branch from the GitHub repository in this case).

If you have an older version, just rebuild the package, makepkg will pull the latest sources.

The package version which is displayed in the AUR interface just reflects the version at which the package was uploaded the last time. The actual pkgver of the built package is computed at build time.

Cheers !

The current AUR build 799.g497839b-1 is in need of an update. The notmuch filter macro, triggered by Ctrl-F, fails and crashes neomutt in this build. The macro has been fixed in more recent commits.

Thx a lot for mentioning this @sommerfeld !

I've assumed neomutt was x86_64, without checking if there are other builds too.

Cheers !

sommerfeld commented on 2020-06-29 17:24 (UTC)

arch should be any in the PKGBUILD since none of the deps are x86-only. I install mutt-wizard and all its deps fine on my rpi.

The only annoyance I get is this warning:

 -> The following packages are not compatible with your architecture:

which is not even true...

I'm going to fix that tonite @friday13. Thx for reporting !

E/ Done. Cheers !

Kr1ss commented on 2019-10-11 09:02 (UTC)

It does pull the latest commit.

Regarding the notmuch dependency, you are right. I must've missed that. Will take care of that tonight, thank you for mentioning that.

kronikpillow commented on 2019-10-11 07:21 (UTC) (edited on 2019-10-11 07:22 (UTC) by kronikpillow)

does this install the latest commit? notmuch is not listed as a optional dependency while the config includes keybindings and functions for it

Kr1ss commented on 2019-09-23 09:58 (UTC)

@jemadux the wizard is supposed to be started with

$ mw

There are also some arguments/options you can use.

$ man mw

will give you a manual. Also there's documentation in the repository's document.

Thank you, that was quick ! I'll look into it tomorrow, think I'll have it ready at night.

Roland commented on 2019-09-07 11:36 (UTC)

Done. New repo is: I'd be grateful if you could package it. pkgname='mailwizard-git' pkgdesc='Configure isync, getmail, msmtp and neomutt with pass for passwords.' provides=("${pkgname%-git}") conflicts=("mutt-wizard") depends=('neomutt' 'isync' 'msmtp' 'getmail' 'urlscan' 'pass')

Kr1ss commented on 2019-09-06 13:58 (UTC)

Hi @Roland,

thank you for your comment. I've actually been following your PR for some time now with interest. I wouldn't consider switching this package to another source though, but what about you doing a proper fork, so we could package your version additionally ?

Forking would include :

  1. renaming your project,
  2. including an attribution to the original dev and their upstream repo as the source,
  3. providing a link to that repo in your code/comments/documentation, and
  4. since mutt-wizard is licensed GPLv3, you'd need to use the same license.

Let me know what you think.

Roland commented on 2019-09-06 09:05 (UTC)

I worked through this tool and made many bug fixes and improvements. I don't know whether Luke intends to merge in my pull request. If not, please consider switching to my repo at It replaces urlview with urlscan, as that is in the official repos, and it also depends on getmail for POP.

Kr1ss commented on 2019-04-27 13:03 (UTC)

Yeah thank you for the hint. I've just updated the PKGBUILD.

Mouath commented on 2019-04-27 01:52 (UTC)

suggestion to add urlview as optional dependency since its used to open links(^B).
