after installing totem and trying using it I had this issue:
bt_audio_service_open: connect() failed: Connection refused (111)

Researching I noted the problem is:
bt_audio_service_open <- <- bluez <- pilot-link <-

Then I found the claws-mail-nopalm package at AUR and update it.

My request is to have claws-mail without palm support in [extra]
and a package claws-mail-withpalm in AUR because I don't think there is
that much users of claws-mail that have a Palm, right? ;)

I know that the problem is that upstream should make Palm support as a
plugin, not shared-linked, but is it right to install bluetooth stuff with
a mail client by default in Arch? Let's make it simpler, unless there is
a very easy fix for this that I missed.
(Not 'mv'!)

I also am aware you already may have thought about this, but anyway,
this post may help someone to find out about this problem sooner
than I was able to.


Additional info:
* claws-mail 3.7.6
This task depends upon

You can ask upstream to change it making pilot-link and optional dependency/plugin or rebuild claws disabling this option / use the AUR version. I won't change the pkg in extra. I expect lots of other users complaining about missing Palm support.
