I faced the same problem. I switched back to the latest thunderbirg (gtk3) build from the binary repos for now
and i use the exchangecalendar-Extension from this Repo to get Exchange connectivity.

If anyone could help me fix this build error, i would very much appreciate that, but for now i'm out, sorry.

This no longer builds with the AUR helpers, or with makepkg. This is an exacmple output of AURA:

Just add „--cleanbuild“ to makepkg and this problem is gone.

I have the exact same problem like UndeadKernel with pacaur.
Compiling it manually (makepkg -s) works. However I didn't use your PKGBUILD, but the official Arch one with a bumped pkgrel.

UndeadKernel commented on 2017-05-04 11:22

I was able to work with the PKGBUILD file by manually running "makepkg". If I use pacaur, it didn't work due to the permission problem described previously.

If I stop 'makepkg' for whatever reason and restart it again, it will fail to compile because of two problems:

1) It will complain that the 'path' folder already exists. I had to comment out the statement 'mkdir path' in the PKGBUILD.

2) It will also complain that the link to 'python2' already exists. I commented out this line as well.

My system is up to date. Did a pacman -Syu just yesterday.

uname -a output:
Linux OfficeZombie 4.10.13-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Apr 27 12:15:09 CEST 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I'm currently running makepkg manually without pacaur. Will report back as soon as it finishes.

Are you sure, your system is really up-to-date?
Which architecture do you use?

UndeadKernel commented on 2017-05-04 09:47

Compilation is finished. Unfortunately, I'm getting this error right at the end:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "../../../_tests/mozmill/resources/", line 104, in <module>
File "../../../_tests/mozmill/resources/", line 92, in main
[os.path.join(mozbase, package) for package in mozbase_packages], env=env)

File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/", line 1024, in _execute_child

OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

My guess is that pacaur, although asking for sudo access as root, does not have the right permissions. I'll investigate further.

So does this PKGBUILD work for you?

fatmike commented on 2017-05-04 09:29

Yes, i added this package here to be able to use the Exchange Sync extension with Lightning calendar.

I adopted the official PKGBUILD and also all the including patches for this package. I just run makepkg -rs manually on my up-to-date x86_64-system and the build was successful.

You could try my binary directly:
