I just checked and can't seem to reproduce any issue with spellchecking.

Setting the non-English language from the context menu on the write window properly switches the language.
Setting the default language to non-English from preferences and opening a new compose window has the new default language selected.
(I tested with Swedish)

I noticed that Interlink doesn't work with non-English dictionaries anymore.
Did you get your dictionaries from here (Language Tools/Dictionaries) or are they Firefox/Thunderbird ones? If so, try uninstalling them and reinstall from provided link.

I tested with two new Interlink "installations". One in a VM and one on metal. I can't reproduce the issue either.

Something must have happened locally with my main Interlink instance. I will soon upgrade to newer Linux so it doesn't matter much. Thanks for your help! I thought maybe I wasn't the only one. I tested a couple of dictionaries (from binaryoutcast.com), but it seems it was just a local (but persistent) glitch.

I consider it solved unless I run into the same problem in the future.

Do let me know if it happens again and take special note of when and how it happens.
Is it that you have no idea where you are going or what you're supposed to be doing right now?
Or did you just assume when you saw that timer that something in this room is capable of turning it off?

Hi,

the lightning extension has a small error: The today pane doesn't show events if interlink was started during the first hour after midnight.

Did you set your time zone correctly? It's in Edit -> Preferences -> Calendar -> General.

There's no reason to assume everyone would want to use whatever time zone is set in the OS as the time zone for your calendar :)

Re: interlink-52.9.7577.win32.installer is nasty according to confused VirusTotal

Post by Tohuwabohuix » 2020-10-04, 13:54

:shock:
What is this Google-Alphabet-Chronicle-VirusTotal-bullshit for?

When I check interlink-52.9.7577.win32.installer.exe on VirusTotal it says Microsoft would detect it as infected with Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.C!ml. In a second scan shortly afterwards, Microsoft is supposed to recognize it as "PUA:Win32/Presenoker" infected.

However, if I scan locally with my installed "Microsoft Security Essentials" (latest definitions), interlink-52.9.7577.win32.installer.exe is clean! Avast also recognizes it as clean.

If I now change the 7z.sfx interlink-52.9.7577.win32.installer.exe by adding any file and afterwards removing it again, VirusTotal does not detect an infection via Microsoft.

So VirusTotal's Microsoft scanner just complains about the 7z.sfx packaging. All other scan machines say there is no infection.

:crazy:

So, is this VirusTotal just hyped-up nonsense? :shh:

The web scanners are flagging my files but you modify it and it suddenly says it is clean?

Sounds like someone is flagging and targeting my releases now.

Btw, my Windows releases lately are built on the same build server that Pale Moon and Basilisk releases are built on sitting in Moonchild's house and uploaded from there not touching my workstation.

Off-topic:
I guess to go right along with the persistent, coordinated, distributed hacking attempts on 3 of the Pale Moon servers. No that THOSE are getting anywhere :P

Same result when I un7zip interlink-52.9.7577.win32.installer.exe: VirusTotal says that file "setup.exe" and folder "core" are clean.
For me that means that VirusTotal's Microsoft engine only complains about the 7z.sfx packaging - and only the Microsoft scanner. The other sanners on VirusTotal say: clean!

But anyway: As I wrote, I don't trust in VirusTotal any longer.

Those were just curious tests and my post just for the record! :coffee:

Well Icon and version metadata aside it is the same sfx that Pale Moon. So yeah, bs false positives are bs.

They are signature false positives on compressed data.
Just the unlucky occurrence of having a compressed data stream exactly match a known malware signature (= specific sequence of bytes). It doesn't have anything to do with the 7z sfx module, either. The act of decompressing and recompressing in "update" fashion will change the compressed data and therefore no longer match the signature they look for.

Does Interlink lack a notifications tray icon on Linux? :think:

Linux tends to lack a proper system tray in modern Desktop Environments.

Many Linux DEs do have system trays, certainly anything derived from GNOME Desktop or KDE will. I thought there used to be a few cross-platform extensions for Thunderbird that added tray integration; if you can find one I'm sure it could be forked.

In Gnome there isn't be default any way to see "legacy" tray icons like for example for Pidgin without a shell extension or whatever Gnome calls them. If the functionality isn't in Interlink then it must have just been considered non-essential since we have to destroy anything useful. I want to say Thunderbird used to but I dunno when and I am not entirely sure it ever did but I want to SAY it did.
