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

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

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

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.

Thunderbird 60.0a1 is out, changing the PKGBUILD from




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


I guess this is interesting for thunderbird-nightly aswell.

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


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!

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

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

thevoidnn commented on 2015-12-16 13:38

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)
