A few claws-mail quirks in TC10 x86
« on: July 13, 2019, 09:49:09 PM »
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~$ claws-mail
claws-mail: error while loading shared libraries: libsasl2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

tc@E310:~$ claws-mail

Creating the links allows the program to run. Creating the second link is probably unnecessary.

The  Claws-Mail-WARNING  is due to a nonexistent file. Creating an empty file is enough to eliminate the warning.

The  Gtk-CRITICAL  error occurs when selecting  Configuration->Edit accounts...  from the menu. It does not stop the program. It only
appears to happen the first time it is selected from the menu. Maybe an initialization issue?

The  export  commands were part of an effort to get the spell check working. Executing  hunspell -D  showed it was looking in
/usr/share/myspell.  I also loaded  hunspell-en-us.tcz  because  hunspell.tcz  doesn't appear to contain any dictionaries. All was
to no avail, but spell checking for E-mail is not a deal breaker for me.

The  xdg-open  messages occurred when selecting  Configuration->Preferences...  from the menu, and then selecting
External Programs  from the popup window. Installing  xdg-utils.tcz  fixed that.

Yeah - hunspell will work standalone if the dictionary path is specified, but it is going to need fixing to work with dictionaries in /usr/local.

If "--prefix=/usr/local" is used, hunspell does not adjust the dictionary path, nor does it allow the location to be specified. I guess it will need hacking here:
Code: [Select]
$ grep -r share/hunspell .
./src/tools/hunspell.cxx:  "/usr/share/hunspell:"

I'll take a look.

I updated the dictionary location and adjusted the dep file so that a dictionary is loaded.

Maybe you could check this part of things and then I'll take a look at claws-mail?

Hi Juanito
Hunspell  can now find its dictionary:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~$ hunspell -D
SEARCH PATH:
.::/usr/share/hunspell:/usr/local/share/hunspell:/usr/share/myspell:/usr/local/share/myspell:/usr/share/myspell/dicts:/usr/local/share/myspell/dicts:/Library/Spelling:/home/tc/.openoffice.org/3/user/wordbook:.openoffice.org2/user/wordbook:.openoffice.org2.0/user/wordbook:Library/Spelling:/opt/openoffice.org/basis3.0/share/dict/ooo:/usr/lib/openoffice.org/basis3.0/share/dict/ooo:/opt/openoffice.org2.4/share/dict/ooo:/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.4/share/dict/ooo:/opt/openoffice.org2.3/share/dict/ooo:/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.3/share/dict/ooo:/opt/openoffice.org2.2/share/dict/ooo:/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.2/share/dict/ooo:/opt/openoffice.org2.1/share/dict/ooo:/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.1/share/dict/ooo:/opt/openoffice.org2.0/share/dict/ooo:/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/share/dict/ooo
AVAILABLE DICTIONARIES (path is not mandatory for -d option):
/usr/local/share/myspell/hyph_en_US
/usr/local/share/myspell/en_US
LOADED DICTIONARY:
/usr/local/share/myspell/en_US.aff
/usr/local/share/myspell/en_US.dic
Hunspell 1.3.3
fxied
& fxied 3 0: fixed, fried, flied

^Z[1]+  Stopped                    hunspell -D
tc@E310:~$
But  claws-mail  still can't find  hunspell.  Or maybe  enchant  can't find  hunspell ?  Maybe these debug messages are of some help:
Code: [Select]
prefswindow.c:706:0.000000
prefswindow.c:706:0.000000
gtkaspell.c:1623:Aspell: error when searching for dictionaries: No dictionary found.

addr_compl.c:768:end_address_completion ref count 0
hooks.c:90:unregisted hook 4 in 'folder_update'
The complete set of debug messages (program start to program exit) is attached if it helps.

It appears to be looking for  aspell.  The  gtkaspell.c:1623  occurs when calling up the preferences window. The gtkaspell.c:681 & 684
occur when calling up the compose window. I did try installing  aspell  yesterday but it didn't help.

Just a couple of other notes:
1. The info file should probably have a note to start  dbus.
2. The  hunspell  update seems to have created a (circular?) dependency issue. The  claws-mail,tcz.tee  files is now 168 Megabytes.

enchant did not have a dep on aspell, so I've recompiled it.

There was a circular dep with hunspell that I fixed, but it looks like the claws-mail tree file wasn't rebuilt.

Hi Juanito
OK, now there's progress, and a missing dependency:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~$ sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib/libsasl2.so.3.0.0 /usr/local/lib/libsasl2.so.2
tc@E310:~$ sudo ldconfig

Those messages were because dictionaries had not yet been selected in the email accounts yet. Selecting them eliminated those
messages.

Hi Juanito
I take it back,  dbus-glib  is needed, but not by  enchant.tcz.

claws-mail and libetpan posted - hopefully dbus-glib is not required now?

Hi Juanito
According to the  claws tree  file,  ca-certificates.tcz  and  libarchive.tcz  depend on  openssl.tcz,  while  cyrus-sasl.tcz  depends
on  openssl-1.1.1.tcz. Will that be an issue?

Meantime I'll run another update and see if the  dbus  dependency is gone.

Ah - I hadn’t realised cyrus-sasl had been updated to use openssl-1.1.1, it might cause a problem..

It runs and it still retrieves my email. That update is also the reason for that  sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib/libsasl2.so.3.0.0 ... command

Some more dependency stuff:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~$ sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib/libsasl2.so.3.0.0 /usr/local/lib/libsasl2.so.2
tc@E310:~$ sudo ldconfig

Whilst I didn't compile against the latest cysrus-sasl, the lib names are the same and I don't have any missing deps.

Did you update claws-mail, libetpan, enchant and hunspell?

Hi Juanito
I let  Apps  run an update check and selected updates, then I restart the machine. I just now checked and I see  Apps  showing in
the size tab that I'm still missing a bunch of dependencies. Guess I should have rune a dependency check. Doing it now.

Hi Juanito
No more funny business,  claws-mail  starts right up. The  GTK-critical  error is also gone:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~$ claws-mail --debug

I did notice this  /dev/mem_notify not available  message:
Code: [Select]
prefs_gtk.c:1024:destroying cache

I'm guessing that's not even a warning, but merely informational.

These are directories I need to set up if I can't live with the programs appearance?:
Code: [Select]

I think all the issues are solved. Thank you.

No problem - I’d guess that the themes are a separate optional package?
