@michaldybczak another option would be to disable "ac_add_options --with-system-libvpx" in the PKGBUILD (optionally remove depends "libvpx") and rebuild. that will link mozilla's version of libvpx instead of system-wide version.

There is a new situation. After recent system update Thunderbird stopped working (not just for me):

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/thunderbird/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

There is a topic on Manjaro forums about it:

I tried to re-compile thunderbird-appmenu but now I get the build error:

11:47.06 make[2]: [/mnt/home-hdd/build/thunderbird-appmenu/src/thunderbird-60.5.3/config/ compile] Błąd 2 11:47.06 make[1]: [/mnt/home-hdd/build/thunderbird-appmenu/src/thunderbird-60.5.3/config/ default] Error 2 11:47.06 make: *** [ build] Error 2 11:47.07 246 compiler warnings present. 11:47.29 Failed to parse ccache stats output: stats updated Sat Mar 9 17:12:09 2019 11:47.29 /usr/bin/notify-send --app-name=Mozilla Build System Mozilla Build System Build failed ==> ERROR: There is error in build(). Aborting...

So it seems that the fix with symlink stays as the only solution at the moment.

Unable to install: permission denied

Unfortunately it failed on my desktop (Manjaro Linux). I further looked into the problem and found that it might be that the shebang line in /var/tmp/pamac-build-user/thunderbird-appmenu/src/thunderbird-60.5.1/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/_tests/mozmill-virtualenv/bin/pip is too long (> 128 chars) and caused the bash to fail. Then I changed the command in by replacing [pip, 'install'] with [correct_python, '-m', 'pip', 'install'] to avoid such issue, where correct_python is the python in the shebang line. Hope this would be useful for users who encountered the similar problem.

I can confirm. All works fine now. Thanks Nikatar!

@farseerfc, I have upgraded appmenu-gtk-module to the version 0.7.1-1, and it didn't help.

It's something wrong with TB's settings, because all other GTK applications successfully export their menus to the system.

Probably I should add some debug prints to the TB source code to understand what causes the problem.

Anyway, thanks for your help.

farseerfc commented on 2019-02-22 09:34

@alexm you might need to upgrade it, mine is community/appmenu-gtk-module 0.7.1-1, and there is a aur/appmenu-gtk-module-git 0.6.94-2 seems outdated.

alexm commented on 2019-02-22 09:25

maybe we should add appmenu-gtk-module into optdepends

I have it installed (appmenu-gtk-module-git 0.4.4.r37.gfb9116d-1)

@michaldybczak is KDE user.

Ok, thanks!

I don't use KDE, therefore I can't help you. But, as I know, @michaldybczak is KDE user. Write to him by email. I hope, he will help you.

alexm commented on 2019-02-22 03:41

I have built and installed the package (60.5.1-1), but still don't see any menu, neither in the dedicated button in the program title, nor in the global menu. Most of other applications: Qt-apps, GTK2-apps (e.g. dia), GTK3-apps (gvim), LibreOffice, - do support global menus in the system (KDE/Plasma-5.15).

Maybe I have to active the feature somehow within thunderbird?

Thank you in advance.
