Replacement for FireTray:

But I don't see any notification icon, do I need to keep it running minimized ?

@arifzeeshan not on AUR but the unofficial [archlinuxcn] repo is building this package and providing binary

arifzeeshan commented on 2019-01-10 14:44

Please make a bin version of it. It's really taxing to compile such large program

Yes. If you get an this error, you just have rebuild Thunderbird. Thunderbird will be built with new version of icu automatically.

Therefore, be careful to update the system when a new version of icu is released)

Looks like it needs a rebuild with icu62

Hi. Thank you for the package. It appears, that this is the only thunderbird package version that is compatible with FireTray plugin.

There is an opened bug in official bugtracker: For short, no tray icon available to thunderbird, and there is nothing that anybody doing for it to change. It was ok, when the firetray plugin worked, but it was broken in 60+ thunderbird version. So the only way to get it to work is to built this aur package.

Please do remove flag out-of-date, because package can still be built and is needed.

Note for other guys: takes more than 9GB disk space, so you probably encounter some difficulties during the automatic build throw yaourt/pacaur, just build it manually.

Thank you! It was indeed a matter of too long pathways. When I switched make temp directory to /make build was successful. I would have never thought about that. This is weird bug and forces me to build on root partition where I have little space.

If you get an error in build(), which appears "No such file or directory...", try to build it manually:

1)git clone

2)cd ~/thunderbird-appmenu (also you can rename this build folder to get a shorter path)

3)makepkg -sric

I understood what the error was. This is a very strange build bug.

[code][Errno 2] No such file or directory make[4]: [Makefile:31: mozmill-virtualenv] Error 1 make[4]: Leaving directory '/home/user/.cache/yay/thunderbird-appmenu/src/thunderbird-52.8.0/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/mail/test/mozmill'[/code]

"It cuts off the path to the desired file". You need to reduce the number of characters in paths when building.
