Description Hiroshi 2015-07-13 12:44:04 CEST
I recently upgraded to Kubuntu 15.04 with plasma5 desktop.
If I try to do auto-completing address on the compose window,  mouse cursor seems to brink but nothing appear.
If I switch to Unity environment on Kubuntu15.04, it works without problem.
So this issue is related to plasma5 desktop environment and claws-mail.
Comment 1 Paul 2015-07-14 09:44:59 CEST
There's one thing you can try:
* quit claws-mail
* open ~/.claws-mail/clawsrc in a text editor
* set address_search_wildcard=0

If this changes nothing then the bug is like your description implies - in plasma5.

Please report what you find when changing that hidden pref.

Thank you Paul,

I did what you suggested.
Nothing changed (once I saw the pop-up window appeared but I cannot reproduce it).
Sylpheed works auto-complete address even in plasma5 environment.

This will be fixed in an upcoming Claws Mail release. Thanks for the report!
Comment 7 juergen_wille 2015-07-16 22:34:22 CEST
I've tried to build the sources with the fix from git. The sources are lacking the configure - so I won't be able to ./configure and make.. The tarball with the claws-mail-3.11.1.tar.xz from sourceforge does include the configure script.
Comment 8 brad@fineby.me.uk 2015-07-16 22:42:58 CEST
GIT always lacks the .configure script.  Run autogen.sh then make
Comment 9 Hiroshi 2015-07-17 01:00:33 CEST
Thank you for your work to update claws-mail.
I compiled the claws-mail from the git repository and it works fine now on my Kubuntu 15.04.
