94.0a1 and 95.0a1 are out...

a36233 commented on 2021-03-25 08:55 (UTC)

Version is quite outdate now, the current nightly version is 89

freswa commented on 2020-04-26 18:41 (UTC)

PR welcome :) https://github.com/freswa/aur/

blackout commented on 2020-03-11 10:06 (UTC)

please add the code to disable update notifications into the PKGBUILD file

Salamandar commented on 2020-01-30 17:18 (UTC)

Can the dependency over gtk2 be replaced by gtk3 ? :)

electricprism commented on 2019-12-13 22:02 (UTC)

Every update it seems that the existing profile is completely thrown out and I really don't want to duplicate 20GB of data every time there's an update so I add a select-profile to my launcher.desktop file

~/.local/share/applications/userapp-Thunderbird-UCUIFZ.desktop

/opt/thunderbird-beta/thunderbird -p --no-remote% %u

For disable check for updates...

You have to create a file called policies.json

{
  "policies": {
    "DisableAppUpdate": true
  }
}

Then, into PKGBUILD package() you have to add

  # Disable auto-updates
  install -Dm644 "${srcdir}"/policies.json -t "$pkgdir/opt/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/distribution"

Another suggestion is to simplify installation directory...

In PKGBUILD package(), you can replace each

"$pkgdir/opt/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
With
"$pkgdir/opt/${pkgname}"

We're up to thunderbird-70.0a1, works if applying the following to PKGBUILD

version=70.0a1.20190711
_version=70.0a1

mansuetus commented on 2019-04-05 17:01 (UTC) (edited on 2019-04-05 17:04 (UTC) by mansuetus)

If you want to enjoy the "last" version, change :

pkgver=68.0a1.20190405
_version=68.0a1

also, if your data gets "lost" when updating, just launch daily with this command : thunderbird-nightly --ProfileManager

FredBezies commented on 2019-02-18 18:44 (UTC)

Thunderbird nightly is 67.0a1 now.

AlfredoRamos commented on 2019-01-24 19:28 (UTC) (edited on 2019-01-24 19:28 (UTC) by AlfredoRamos)

The setting mail.biff.show_alert disables all alerts, including the ones from incoming emails.

I set app.update.auto to false and app.update.silent to true and the update notifications went away, not sure if it was because of both or just the first one.

txtsd commented on 2018-11-21 17:09 (UTC)

Can mail.biff.show_alert be set to False by default?

mirh commented on 2018-11-07 19:00 (UTC)

And now 65.0a1

Dreamingwolf commented on 2018-09-29 14:33 (UTC)

Just as an FYI, nightly is now on 64.0a1

skydrome commented on 2018-08-11 21:07 (UTC)

mail.biff.show_alert

DearPleasure commented on 2018-08-11 20:07 (UTC)

is it possible to disable updates within nightly. update notification is annoying

Dreamingwolf commented on 2018-05-09 16:53 (UTC)

Correction doesn't work for me using yaourt -Syu --aur

Dreamingwolf commented on 2018-05-09 16:52 (UTC)

My bad, sorry. It doesn't work for me using yaourt -Syu, but does if I specify yaourt -S thunderbird-nightly.

freswa commented on 2018-05-06 18:26 (UTC)

This automatically fetches the latest nightly. $pkgver gets updated upon build.

Dreamingwolf commented on 2018-05-06 18:22 (UTC)

Not sure if there is a new link or something, but current PKGBUILD doesn't grab latest update. I have to manually change the pkgver listed in PKGBUILD to the current date in order for the app to update.

MarcelPa commented on 2018-01-25 08:09 (UTC) (edited on 2018-01-25 08:10 (UTC) by MarcelPa)

Thunderbird 60.0a1 is out, changing the PKGBUILD from

_version=59.0a1

to

_version=60.0a1

is enough to get the newest version. Moreover, firefox-nightly changed the download link from

ftp.mozilla.org/pub/...

to

download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/...

I guess this is interesting for thunderbird-nightly aswell.

MarcelPa commented on 2018-01-04 08:41 (UTC) (edited on 2018-01-04 08:43 (UTC) by MarcelPa)

I got an error during installation:

==> Starting package()...
install: cannot stat 'thunderbird/chrome/icons/default/default22.png': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I assume there is a new icon for Thunderbird in different sizes (using i3 I don't see those anyway). I changed line 46 in the PKGBUILD from:

for i in 16x16 22x22 24x24 32x32 48x48 256x256; do

to:

for i in 16x16 32x32 48x48 64x64 128x128; do

That worked for me, but I cannot say anything about missing icons or anything. Maybe this helps someone!

I get the following message: curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found ==> FEHLER: Fehler beim Download von http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/nightly/latest-comm-central/thunderbird-54.0a1.en-US.linux-x86_64.txt Breche ab... ==> FEHLER:Makepkg konnte thunderbird-nightly nicht erstellen.

Not using thunderbird any more. I am disowning it. Feel free to adopt.

cgirard commented on 2015-12-16 17:28 (UTC)

@thevoidnn: You're welcome to propose a fix...

thevoidnn commented on 2015-12-16 13:38 (UTC) (edited on 2015-12-16 13:38 (UTC) by thevoidnn)

fix the PKGBUILD: ==> Downloading... Warning: Illegal date format for -z, --timecond (and not a file name). Warning: Disabling time condition. See curl_getdate(3) for valid date syntax. (it installs fine, just remove the warnings)

skydrome commented on 2015-06-15 23:41 (UTC)

hmm, once i installed the signed extension from the addons site it works, but not when building FireTray from source, weird.

skydrome commented on 2015-06-15 23:24 (UTC)

Anyone using FireTray extension with nightly? Working? Cant get it to work, gonna try a diff version of Thunderbird

Airon90 commented on 2015-05-16 09:11 (UTC)

Can't build the package: ==> Extracting... bsdtar: Error opening archive: Unrecognized archive format Then it exits.

cgirard commented on 2014-10-14 14:26 (UTC)

Done. I still do not use the download method used in firefox-nightly as I do not like the behavior when there is already a downloaded file from a previous day.

Det commented on 2014-10-14 13:56 (UTC)

Please also use the date in the pkgver.

blackout commented on 2014-06-07 21:28 (UTC)

why doesn't this pkg have a daily version number like any other daily/nightly mozilla products?

orschiro commented on 2014-04-24 17:44 (UTC)

@skydrome Works. Thanks!

skydrome commented on 2014-04-24 16:47 (UTC)

Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Update->Never

orschiro commented on 2014-04-24 05:20 (UTC)

@cgirard Thanks! I overlooked that it installs the binary under a different name. One last question: Is it possible to disable the update notification window? Thunderbird continously opens the `update now` window where I can say `Ask later` or `update now`. However, updating now does not work and I want to disable this automatic updater completely. Thanks for any tips!

cgirard commented on 2014-04-22 11:23 (UTC)

@orschiro: No, they can be installed simultaneously.

orschiro commented on 2014-04-22 11:21 (UTC)

Shouldn't this package stay in conflict with thunderbird from the official repos?

Det commented on 2014-03-20 19:17 (UTC)

He's actually already being let know when you flag it.

Supergeek800 commented on 2014-03-20 19:16 (UTC)

The latest Thunderbird Daily build is now 31.0a1, flagged the package as outdated. Just letting you know.

Det commented on 2013-05-03 01:46 (UTC)

Since wget's been moved to [extra] you either need to add it in makedepends=() or change it to curl.

cgirard commented on 2012-09-13 08:39 (UTC)

Does not seem like the best idea. It would prevent users from installing other non standard thunderbird version at the same time. I don't have much time right now but you could try to investigate how to make thunderbird-nightly read /usr/lib/thunderbird/extensions/.

skydrome commented on 2012-09-09 11:17 (UTC)

i have some in there now but it doesnt read that dir, only if i move them into /opt/thunderbird-18.0a1/extensions will they load. I tried that first before asking the original question :)

Det commented on 2012-09-09 10:36 (UTC)

@skydrome, they should just be using /usr/lib/thunderbird/extensions/.

skydrome commented on 2012-09-09 10:29 (UTC)

could the version be excluded in the package directory? using /opt/thunderbird would make it easier for pkgbuilds using nightly extensions.

commented on 2012-08-30 21:18 (UTC)

Not working anymore as 18.0a1 is actual in /latest-comm-central on mozilla ftp! Changing just the version number in PGKBUILD is enough ;) http://pastie.org/4618755

cgirard commented on 2012-07-15 18:42 (UTC)

Orphaning the pkgbuild temporarily. I will be back in 2 week and will adopt it back if still orphan.

Det commented on 2012-04-26 12:25 (UTC)

Have fun with it.

cgirard commented on 2012-04-26 10:33 (UTC)

Adopted and updated. Thank you for your work on this Det.

Det commented on 2012-04-25 21:59 (UTC)

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

Det commented on 2012-02-09 10:29 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting.

cgirard commented on 2012-02-09 10:28 (UTC)

OK. Nevermind, it does work now. Thx.

cgirard commented on 2012-02-09 10:26 (UTC)

Yes I've seen that but I got a checksum failure anyway. Will try again.

Det commented on 2012-02-09 10:23 (UTC)

It was just an extra bracket (')') in the second line.

cgirard commented on 2012-02-09 10:21 (UTC)

Something is wrong with the checksums section (extraneous parenthesis + something else ?).

triarius commented on 2011-05-12 16:20 (UTC)

3.4a1pre is out

cgirard commented on 2011-05-05 14:41 (UTC)

Correct checksum for thunderbird-nightly.desktop is '9a9bbe38c27fb4fd172a7be75755a8222a80b2bc3df6dcb8dafcc0088787f58f25e50dddfcd0a7da12677efffda20001003b255ea715dc07b831db4d57255ff4'
