Thunderbird 60.0a1 is out, changing the PKGBUILD from




is enough to get the newest version. Moreover, firefox-nightly changed the download link from


I guess this is interesting for thunderbird-nightly aswell.

I got an error during installation:

==> Starting package()...
install: cannot stat 'thunderbird/chrome/icons/default/default22.png': No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in package().

I assume there is a new icon for Thunderbird in different sizes (using i3 I don't see those anyway). I changed line 46 in the PKGBUILD from:

for i in 16x16 22x22 24x24 32x32 48x48 256x256; do


for i in 16x16 32x32 48x48 64x64 128x128; do

That worked for me, but I cannot say anything about missing icons or anything. Maybe this helps someone!

Not using thunderbird any more. I am disowning it. Feel free to adopt.

@thevoidnn: You're welcome to propose a fix...

thevoidnn commented on 2015-12-16 13:38

fix the PKGBUILD:
==> Downloading...
Warning: Illegal date format for -z, --timecond (and not a file name).
Warning: Disabling time condition. See curl_getdate(3) for valid date syntax.

(it installs fine, just remove the warnings)

hmm, once i installed the signed extension from the addons site it works, but not when building FireTray from source, weird.

skydrome commented on 2015-06-15 23:24

Anyone using FireTray extension with nightly? Working? Cant get it to work, gonna try a diff version of Thunderbird

Can't build the package:

==> Extracting...
bsdtar: Error opening archive: Unrecognized archive format

Then it exits.

Done. I still do not use the download method used in firefox-nightly as I do not like the behavior when there is already a downloaded file from a previous day.
