When I install darkmx I notice that the package has no time information. There are also errors with dpkg. I am running debian bullseye. Plz fix.

It's trying to use gconftool to make the file associations.
It's ok if gconftool is not available. When the program runs the first time it will do the association itself.
You can ignore this and it will install fine.
That being said maybe there's a way they can modify the postinst script so it silently drops the warning.
