I guess we'll just have to use one of the other AUR packages, or the package from the community repository.

Has anyone tried with e.g. KeePassXC instead of gnome-keyring? If so, the dependency should be org.freedesktop.secrets.

Chiming in that as another kde user, gnome-keyring was required to get mailspring running. It actually popped up a window saying it "could not store my password securely", and then closed, so it's not like there's some limited functionality that you can use without it.

It's clearly not an optional dependency - if there are non-gnome alternatives that it would happily work with, that's not made clear :)

As a sidenote, the popup hinted I might want to install libsecret as well - which was already installed. After installing gnome-keyring, it ran fine.

in fact @gardotd426's argument doesn'tmake sense. neofetch has limited function without the optional dependency, mailspring has zero function without gnome-keyring.

Sorry for the late response. @gardotd in my case failed to start on the fresh install of KDE plasma. Tracking down the issue, I have also came across the same issue as linked in the @capoeira comment.

Anyway, all issues were gone when I installed gnome-keyring package on my non-gnome desktop environment.

@gardotd426 it might run, but it doesn't work:

I just uninstalled gnome-keyring and libgnome-keyring and installed mailspring, and it runs (I'm not logged into gnome right now).

So yeah, it's not a mandatory dependency. I know it's weird but mandatory dependencies are only dependencies which are required for everyone no matter what in order for the package to function. And that doesn't even mean fully function either, a good example is a package like neofetch that will ONLY display images in the terminal if you have one of the optional dependencies for images installed. Otherwise, it doesn't fully function, but they still aren't mandatory dependencies.

@grega it should only fail to start without gnome-keyring on desktop-environments that use gnome-keyring. That wouldn't be a mandatory dependency, because it wouldn't be necessary on desktop environments with other keyrings.

grega commented on 2020-08-05 09:32

Hi, would be possible to move the gnome-keyring dependency from optional to mandatory, since the app fails to start if gnome-keyring is not installed?

@hodsonus: No problem! I'm subscribed to GitHub release notifications, so as soon as they put out a new version I should be able to update it relatively quickly.
