Roundcube for YunoHost

Roundcube is a browser-based multilingual IMAP client with an application-like user interface.

Shipped version: 1.3.6


In addition to Roundcube core features, the following are made available with this package:

  • Integrate with YunoHost users and SSO - i.e. logout button, YunoHost users search
  • Synchronize your email aliases as identities in Roundcube
  • Install the contextmenu and automatic addressbook plugins by default
  • Allow to install the CardDAV (address book) synchronization plugin at the installation - note that if you have installed ownCloud or Baïkal, it will automatically add the corresponding and existing address book.

Extend and tweak


You can extend - or even override - the Roundcube configuration which is coming with this package in the file conf/ Do not edit the file conf/ as future upgrades will overwrite it.


You can also install other plugins - which will not be removed with upgrades. To do so, you can use the official Plugin Repository.

From the Plugin Repository

Let's say for example that we want to install the html5_notifier plugin.

  1. Connect to your server as root using SSH:

    $ ssh admin@
    $ sudo -i
  2. Log in as the roundcube user - which owns the roundcube directory - and navigate in it:

    # su -s /bin/bash - roundcube
    $ cd /var/www/roundcube
  3. Install the plugin you want using composer - note that you have to specify kitist/html5_notifier and not only html5_notifier:

    $ COMPOSER_HOME=./.composer php composer.phar require "kitist/html5_notifier"
  4. Enable it in the local configuration file conf/ using your favorite text editor by adding:

    $config['plugins'][] = 'html5_notifier';

Note that you should also check the plugin homepage for additional installation steps as needed.

Manual installation

You can also download the plugin and put it under the plugins/ directory. In this case, do not forget to change ownerships of this folder to roundcube.
