Installing evolution-ews


#1

Hi all,
I’m running a Proof of Concept of PureOS in VMware fusion on my Mac and testing out various tools to see if I can make the switch.

One thing I am trying to do is install Evolution Mail client with the evolution-ews plugin. Through the GUI for applications it’s listed, but not enabled and can’t select it. If I try from Bash I get "evolution-ews is not available, but is referred to by another package. ‘evolution-ews’ has no installation candidate.

Is this because I’m only hitting the Purism channels?

From what I can see, evolution-ews is not included in the PureOS repos. I’ll see if we can’t include it. It is available in Debian if you want to pull the package down from there. It will take a couple days for us to bring in a new package into PureOS.

I’ve created a tracker it for this;

Thank you! No rush on my part and I’ll keep an eye out for it.

When did that change? I had no issues installing evolution-ews with apt. Didn’t have to do anything repository wise.

There has been a recent vulnerability found in the Evolution-EWS package: https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-3890

It appears it is fixed in the version they have in experimental, I’ll take a look to see if this is the case and may bring that into PureOS.
