For everyone who uses firefox-appmenu and/or thunderbird-appmenu(or their binary versions), my new package may be interesting:

Unity-menubar.patch works within the major version, as a rule, although there was one exception.

I try to update the packages with a delay of no more than a couple of days compared to extra. So these packages cannot be called obsolete. Major updates have longer delays, but that doesn't depend on me

@michaldybczak, this AUR package uses only stable release of thunderbird (which you called obsolete) as upstream package for reasons. After all, extra/thunderbird is the stable version, too. You can find both thunderbird-beta and firefox-kde-opensuse which apply unity-menubar.patch in AUR. A solution may be found by combining these two. However, I know little about unity-menubar.patch, and I'm not sure whether it will work with latest thunderbird-beta or not :(

Yeah, @maniacata, contact @nikatar through mails to help him out. This is an awesome package (and its bin version) and the only pain is waiting for new versions that often come out soon before new official version arrives... so the package is most of the time obsolete, but we use it anyway, because there is no alternative.

@nikatar, simply put, it is to write a configuration for the remote host to build. The build process is basically the same as the local one. You can check the official GitHub Actions document (requires a basic understanding of Docker) to learn more. For specific configuration, maybe you can have a look on my Git repository aur-sync-action.

@maniacata,I have never used this technology and have no experience. But it would be interesting to get to know this. Theoretically, the process of generating the PKGBUILD could be automated. All that is needed is to make uniform changes to the original PKGBUILD from extra. But now I do not know how to do it.

Hey, nikatar! Have you ever considered using a CI to automatically update PKGBUILD and compile binaries after new stable version of thunderbird is released? I personally recommend GitHub Actions for its high usability.

Also, I'm a heavy user of this patched version of thunderbird, and I'm willing to help by maintaining this package together :)

Is there a way to compile Enigmail separately and then add it to thunderbird? I suspect that this could solve the issue. Ah, there it is:

prettyvanilla commented on 2019-12-28 20:27

Right, I tried comparing with the precompiled thunderbird-appmenu-bin just now, which crashes just the same for me. I experimented with safe mode and individual disabling of my extensions and was able to narrow it down to enigmail. As soon as that is enabled opening the composition window crashes thunderbird-appmenu. Not sure how to debug this further right now, and going without is not an option for me.

michaldybczak commented on 2019-12-28 20:01

Instead of compiling I switched to thunderbird-appmenu-bin which works fine for me. No crashes.
