Replacement for FireTray:

vtyulb commented on 2018-09-20 07:17

Hi. Thank you for the package. It appears, that this is the only thunderbird package version that is compatible with FireTray plugin.

There is an opened bug in official bugtracker: For short, no tray icon available to thunderbird, and there is nothing that anybody doing for it to change. It was ok, when the firetray plugin worked, but it was broken in 60+ thunderbird version. So the only way to get it to work is to built this aur package.

Please do remove flag out-of-date, because package can still be built and is needed.

Note for other guys: takes more than 9GB disk space, so you probably encounter some difficulties during the automatic build throw yaourt/pacaur, just build it manually.

Thank you! It was indeed a matter of too long pathways. When I switched make temp directory to /make build was successful. I would have never thought about that. This is weird bug and forces me to build on root partition where I have little space.

If you get an error in build(), which appears "No such file or directory...", try to build it manually:

1)git clone

2)cd ~/thunderbird-appmenu (also you can rename this build folder to get a shorter path)

3)makepkg -sric

I understood what the error was. This is a very strange build bug.

[code][Errno 2] No such file or directory make[4]: [Makefile:31: mozmill-virtualenv] Error 1 make[4]: Leaving directory '/home/user/.cache/yay/thunderbird-appmenu/src/thunderbird-52.8.0/obj-x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/mail/test/mozmill'[/code]

"It cuts off the path to the desired file". You need to reduce the number of characters in paths when building.

Hi. To admit, I can not understand what is wrong. Soon (a week or two) I will update this to 52.9. Please, try to build it. If you wish thunderbird with appmenu right now, I can send builded by me package to email etc.

Can't compile it (Manjaro unstable). After half an hour it gives such error:
