I'm trying to compile this on Manjaro but I keep on getting errors saying that it can't find the binary

You need to set pkgrel back to 1 when you update pkgver :)

Cannot get it to be built against rust 1.40.0, even with thunderbird 72.0b3 update. Orphaning it.

FredBezies commented on 2019-12-22 08:00

Cannot be built for now, related to rust 1.40.O landing:

error: could not compile `gkrust`.

72.0b2-2: fixing - I hope - desktop file.

Note that I'll be away for nearly a week from my computer. Please wait if the fix is not correct.

galvez_65 commented on 2019-12-21 22:43

The .desktop file points to an incorrect location. Also it looks like thunderbird-beta no longer exists and should be just thunderbird

chris_muc commented on 2019-10-04 15:36

I have issues with my thunderbird (not only this version but it started some versions before).

In compose windows I don't see any significant changes when composing email (no diff between Arial, Comic Sans or Courier). In Sent folder the only diff is on line with fixed width. When such email goes to Gmail -> everything looks fine there.

Any tips where to look with this issue?

I have posted example here:

Adopted this package. Will post a cleaned up version soon.

Thunderbird 60.0 was released today, so it should not be too long before the main supported version is built for Thunderbird 60 in [extra] at

I would imagine that it would then be possible to use that PKGBUILD for version 60 to build from source, In the next week or two the beta will likely move to version 61.0b1 and then hopefully using the PKGBUILD for version 60 might be adapted without too much work to build version 61.0bX series.

Edited: As at 25th October 2018 current beta is 64.0b1
