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.

it appears symlinking /usr/share/hunspell as dictionaries does not enable system-provided dictionaries anymore. According to, 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.

@aorth, are you sure? According to

"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.

Also please add StartupWMClass=thunderbird to the .desktop file

if anyone is interested I updated the PKGBUILD file to the b2 build. It can be downloaded here:

FYI: I'm having an issue with crashes on Wayland with MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 since 71.0b3 and 71.0b4. This property is helpful if you are using fractional scaling in GNOME. I have raised the issue on Mozilla's Discourse forum:

It looks like you forgot to change the package revision back to -1 on the last few releases.
