• Thunderbird not starting anymore

    Guys, I can’t start thunderbird anymore, I get the following error message:
    XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib/thunderbird/libxul.so:
    libhunspell-1.6.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    Couldn’t load XPCOM.
    Any ideas?

    locate libhunspell-1.6.so.0


    pacman -Qo /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.6.so.0.0.1
    error: No package owns /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.6.so.0.0.1
    pacman -Qo /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.6.so.0
    error: No package owns /usr/lib/libhunspell-1.6.so.0

    what gives: pacman -Qs hunspell ?

    yes update was today ;) so simple update system will bring it back working…

    So looks like thunderbird was updated shortly after hunspell, what was causing the lib-error…

    cd /usr/lib
    ls | grep hunspell
  • Allright, updated Thunderbird, now none of my required addons work anymore, can’t minimize to tray, have no new mail notifications, my theme and font size changer is broken too. Ideas?

  • rebooted?

    and be more detailed… i do not have any issue here with addons and themes…

  • @Jeannie____
    Did you do

    sudo pacman -Syyuu

    And do you have any ignored packages configured?

    For me thunderbird works without problems on a fully updated system.

  • do you use birdtray @Jeannie____ ?
