Thread: Clawsmail & missing plugins

  1. #1

    Default Clawsmail & missing plugins

    Since 12.1 I've switched to Clawsmail & tend to like it much (much, much) better than Thunderbird; however, I have relied on the GTKHTML2VIEWER plugin because many vendors refuse to send emails in anything other than HTML. I've been searching for the plugin and cannot find it anywhere.

    I did, however, find the following:

    http://lists.opensuse.org/archive/op.../msg00491.html

    Update to version 3.9.1:
    + + All plugins previously packaged as 'Extra Plugins' are now
    + contained within the Claws Mail package. In addition to that,
    + the following plugins have been dropped: TrayIcon, Dillo
    + Viewer, and Gtkhtml2 Viewer
    .
    (emphasis mine)

    Why on earth would they drop those plugins, specifically one as useful as an HTML viewer? I cannot find a way to contact the developers to ask them to re-include the gtkhtmlviewer.so & cannot find a way to download the specific plugin; the link does not work from the clawsmail website. Is anybody aware of another way to view in HTML or a place to download the gtkhtml2viewer.so file?

    Thank you in advance.

    EDIT: I tried looking in the Plugins while in Claws & it does not exist. I searched on the Internet & only found links to sites I do not trust for RPM versions of the plugin.

    Why on earth would they drop those plugins,...
    Wrong place to ask, because this was an upstream decision: see Claws Mail 3.9.1 unleashed!! (from 05/2013).
    Use "Fancy HTML Viewer" instead "Gtkhtml2 Viewer".

    Have you tried the 'fancy' plug-in?
