@Det
btw, just wanted to say, this package works properly now, on my box (with same profile.) Not sure what the culprit was, but I would say likely an incompatible extension.
I note that spellcheck is now via hunspell so I guess we can get rid of the "dictionaries" downloaded similar to extensions which previous versions used.

Not sure. On a quick skim it seems you can do: $ LANG=x thunderbird-beta, and go: Preferences > Advanced > General, then under "Date and Time Formatting", tick: Regional settings locale: x.

Doesn't indeed seem to change the LANG itself either.

@Det: it's not working, neither with LC_ALL. I can only imagine because it's the en_US package...

chris_muc commented on 2017-11-13 15:05

it seems FireTray (0.6.1 in my case) was causing problems with newest thunderbird-beta-bin
-> Thunderbird does not open, no error messages.

After disabling FireTray thunderbird opens normally.

Is there any other option to show icon in systray (I am using i3wm)?

Det commented on 2017-11-12 20:27

LC_TIME like all apps, if they haven't locked it?

biosin commented on 2017-11-12 20:25

Is it somehow possible to change the program's locale? I don't want US dates.

Det commented on 2017-11-12 12:01

~/.thunderbird and ~/.cache/thunderbird. That, dependency updates and package's own updates are the usual culprits.

@Det
Thanks.
By "clean settings" you mean brand new profile?

Det commented on 2017-11-11 14:26

Fixed the relative symlink: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=thunderbird-beta-bin&id=828e83d4e3888c844b93fe7a75dcdddb5bb03cf8

About the segfault, couldn't reproduce on 57.0b1(-1). Assume you've gone through the basic steps of clean settings?

stef204 commented on 2017-11-11 12:38

I don't know what changes are causing it, but TB no longer launches or shows GUI.
I looked at the commit message here https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=thunderbird-beta-bin&id=970d7203042dc862169ede21237e979c950c3b8e but cannot see the problem.

Also, FYI one of the launchers is created like this, in /opt/thunderbird-beta:
% ls -l thunderbird-beta
thunderbird-bin -> ../../../../../../../../../../opt/thunderbird-beta/thunderbird
That doesn't seem right.

I tried downgrading to previous version and ran into similar problems but TB 56 finally started again so am staying on 56 for the time being. But looks like something needs fixing (could be on my box but not sure yet.)

Edit: looks like might be related to some addons as when using CLI, i.e. "thunderbird-beta --safe-mode" 57 starts up. I have never seen TB refusing to launch/show GUI due to incompatible addons before. If anyone else has run into something similar with 57, please chime in.

Det commented on 2017-10-25 14:01

You should probably run it as root or change the owner of /opt/thunderbird-beta to you.

biosin commented on 2017-10-25 13:26

For a couple of days there has always been a nag window complaining that it can't install a security update

Det commented on 2017-10-21 19:25

Yes, says right there it's still supported. See: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&arch=i686

sistematico commented on 2017-10-21 19:24

Please, clean your package to only 64 bits version.
Thank you.

'xed.

checksum failure for me

shaggytwodope commented on 2017-03-31 02:17

it seems the upstream url https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/52.0/linux-x86_64/en-US/thunderbird-52.0.tar.bz2 isnt found.

zpiman commented on 2017-03-22 08:59

The installation is failing on the checksum.

misc commented on 2014-09-26 14:20

Looks like there's a new release of 33.0b1.

doits commented on 2012-05-14 08:35

simply updated version string, nothing more or less

Det commented on 2012-04-25 21:59

Sorry. Don't care about these things anymore. Moved on to the stable [extra] thunderbird.

Det commented on 2011-08-04 09:03

Yeah, thanks, but in the future just flagging is enough.

muunleit commented on 2011-08-03 19:51

thunderbird-6.0b2 has been released

5.0b1 has been released

lazx888 commented on 2011-01-23 14:49

An fyi (not a problem with this package) - enigmail (nightly) is not working with the current (3.3a2-1) binary.
