In the interest of correct spelling, I decided to integrate CircleCode's suggested change to fix hunspell and make it required.

Chances are this is opinionated, but I think if you can afford to install Thunderbird, you can also install hunspell.

  • %u change not implemented, not sure if this is a good idea.
  • Let me know if this breaks usage with other spell checkers. I have no idea what others there are.

@kuba-orlik I am not sure what is going on there. The package builds and installs successfully for me using yay and just makepkg + pacman -U.

Is anyone getting an error like this?

rko commented on 2020-10-20 13:51

CircleCode, you are right, I updated all the Exec= to use the hunspell DICTPATH.

CircleCode commented on 2020-10-20 08:06

@rko I think you updated the wrong Exec: the one updated is in a desktop action and not the main Exec (thus explaining the lack of %u) The main one is at line 58

Right now, the change has no effect.

it appears symlinking /usr/share/hunspell as dictionaries does not enable system-provided dictionaries anymore. According to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1587101, this is now achieved by setting the DICPATH env var.

I suggest updating thunderbird-beta-bin.desktop to use Exec=env DICPATH=/usr/share/hunspell /opt/thunderbird-beta/thunderbird %u so that this feature is restored.

@rko yes I guess you're right. I had always used 0 in my packages and never noticed there was official guidance on it. Sorry for bugging you.

Det commented on 2020-02-21 22:05

Yeah, sure has never been 0 in Arch.

rko commented on 2020-02-21 19:28

@aorth, are you sure? According to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PKGBUILD

"When a new version of the software is released, this value must be reset to 1."

aorth commented on 2020-02-21 19:10

@rko you forgot to reset the pkgrel back to 0 with 74.0b1 release. This is a minor thing, I know... but for a new upstream version you should always reset the pkgrel back to 0.
