Upgrading x11-misc/shared-mime-info to 1.6 somehow affects Claws Mail's fancy plugin in such a way that it no longer displays certain HTML emails. I noticed it when trying to view the notifications send by Atlassian Jira
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade x11-misc/shared-mime-info to 1.6
2. restart Claws Mail
3. try to view a complex HTML attachment
A blank page is presented
The properly rendered HTML content
I rebuilt webkit-gtk:2 hoping that it will fix it somehow. No luck. Downgrading shared-mime-info to 1.5 fixed it, though. The idea came to me after I've seen some other reports of Claws Mail's fancy not working okay (NixOS).
please show emerge --info claws-mail-fancy output and also try to run it from a terminal to see if it shows some errors
I'm using the 'fancy' plugin that comes with Claws Mail. I understand the separate ebuild is no longer used/needed.
Running claws-mail from a terminal only displays this:
(claws-mail:19274): GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 2055 was not found when attempting to remove it
but it doesn't feel related.
Created attachment 427258 [details]
emerge --info mail-client/claws-mail
The output of 'emerge --info mail-client/claws-mail'
I don't see what change could break claws-mail:
Maybe you can try reverting them in order until reaching the culprit
I bisected. The commit that breaks it is 4961dc3e48d13c0c675ad7c135419b864813ca55.
Anyway, fancy plugin is going to be dropped per bug 608612
fancy plugin is gone...
