evolution on ubuntu 9.10

Posted on

I have tried to use the latest evolution sources, as described in

http://mad-scientist.us/evolution.html => how to use it

before you can start to build the evolution  you will need to install the following packages

sudo aptitude install libnspr4-dev libnss3-dev ccache evolution-dev git-core gperf gtk-doc-tools libcanberra-gtk-dev libdb-dev libdbus-glib-1-dev libdcerpc-dev libffi-dev libgnome-desktop-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev libgtkhtml-editor-dev libgtkimageview-dev libhal-dev libical-dev libkrb5-dev libldap2-dev libmapi-dev libparse-pidl-perl libproxy-dev libpst-dev libsamba-hostconfig-dev libtalloc-dev libtiff4-dev libtorture-dev libunique-dev network-manager-dev python-dev tdb-dev

You will not be able to build due to the follwoing error.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?searchon=contents&keywords=introspection.m4&mode=filename&suite=karmic&arch=any

Which means no introspection.m4

If anybody is able to help to fix this issue => Thank you for your help 😉

    I worked around this locally by manually copying introspection.m4 from
    gtk+ into my target $prefix/share/aclocal, where autoconf found it.

    using apt-file search xxx.m4
    then aptitude install gobject-introspection

    I have tried the

    aptitude install gobject-introspection

    but this was not the solution.

    The solution was to update to

    Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
