Save file showing unreadable characters


I’me using mailspring snap package on Manjaro Linux. When I try to save a file from the interface, the file names and all the "File Explorer"window to save shows rectangles instead of actual readable characters.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Open a email with attachments
    2 Click on the down facing arrow to save the file
  2. See that all the characters are replaced by rectangles

Expected Behavior

The file explorer window should show readable characters.



  • OS and Version: Manjaro Linux (rolling) with Gnome Wayland
    • Installation Method: snap package
  • Mailspring Version: 1.9.2

I recently saw another user (also, I think, using the snap) reporting a similar problem here. Perhaps worth joining your experience with theirs?

Yes indeed ! I search but didn’t find the ticket before submitting !
