Subject: 2:0.95.0+1-3 still doesn't work with icedove 2
Date: Tue, 05 Jun 2007 08:21:40 +0200
Package: enigmail
Version: 2:0.95.0+1-3
Severity: grave

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
Hi,

I just updated to 0.95, but Icedove still isn't able to use enigmail. 
When I open the addons panel, it still shows enigmail version *0.94* 
(and of course "not compatible with icedove 2.0.0.0").


Cheers,

Bastian

I had the same problem.
Removing extensions.ini from the user profile made icedove ignore the
installed enigmail extension.
Removing, then reinstalling enigmail made everything work fine.

Hi,

at least on my machines, enigmail is not usable since icedove 2.x 
anymore. Icedove 2.x was uploaded over a month ago, this means this 
grave bug is more than month old.

Since I've not received an answer from you asking for more info or 
something, I wonder: are you aware of the problem or can you reproduce 
it? Do you know a workaround? Are you working on it?

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.


Cheers,

Bastian

Package: enigmail

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I've successfully tested two ways to get it working again:

1. Remove the .ini as Géraud Meyer said, and purge and install enigmail
again. Now enigmail works again.

The contents of the .ini when enigmail was not working:

[ExtensionDirs]
[ThemeDirs]
Extension0=/usr/lib/icedove/extensions/{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}

(Note the empty ExtensionsDirs-line)

And now:

[ExtensionDirs]
Extension0=/usr/lib/icedove/extensions/{847b3a00-7ab1-11d4-8f02-006008948af5}
[ThemeDirs]
Extension0=/usr/lib/icedove/extensions/{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}


2. I've tested on a second machine another way, and it looks like it's
sufficient to purge and reinstall enigmail to get it working again
(without to remove the .ini).


Cheers,

Bastian

most likely you had installed enigmail in your profile once (using an
.xpi) install of enigmail.
