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.

I don't know what changes are causing it, but TB no longer launches or shows GUI.
I looked at the commit message here but cannot see the problem.

Also, FYI one of the launchers is created like this, in /opt/thunderbird-beta:
% ls -l thunderbird-beta
thunderbird-bin -> ../../../../../../../../../../opt/thunderbird-beta/thunderbird
That doesn't seem right.

I tried downgrading to previous version and ran into similar problems but TB 56 finally started again so am staying on 56 for the time being. But looks like something needs fixing (could be on my box but not sure yet.)

Edit: looks like might be related to some addons as when using CLI, i.e. "thunderbird-beta --safe-mode" 57 starts up. I have never seen TB refusing to launch/show GUI due to incompatible addons before. If anyone else has run into something similar with 57, please chime in.

You should probably run it as root or change the owner of /opt/thunderbird-beta to you.

For a couple of days there has always been a nag window complaining that it can't install a security update

Yes, says right there it's still supported. See:

Please, clean your package to only 64 bits version.
Thank you.
