After installing evolution-mapi in Ubuntu 13.04, I am getting this error

(evolution:8018): camel-CRITICAL **: camel_provider_list: 
Could not load /usr/lib/evolution-data-server/camel-providers/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

And Evolution Mapi does not show up in the list of providers when setting up emails. How do I resolve this?

my list of installed evolution packages are :

$ sudo dpkg-query -l | grep evolution
ii  evolution                                 3.6.4-0ubuntu1
ii  evolution-common                          3.6.4-0ubuntu1
ii  evolution-data-server                     3.6.4-0ubuntu1
ii  evolution-data-server-common              3.6.4-0ubuntu1
ii  evolution-indicator                       0.2.20-0ubuntu10
ii  evolution-mapi                            3.6.2-0ubuntu1
ii  evolution-plugins                         3.6.4-0ubuntu1

The package python-samba installs the missing lib file. However once I got past that issue, Evolution won't save my account info for my newly created Exchange account. Curious if you experience the same thing.

EDIT: Had to kill all evolution related processes. Then two attempts I made at setting up my exchange account showed up as two accounts in Evolution. Removed one and everything seems to be working fine.

Thanks. That enabled MAPI. However, I think our server is behind the proxy, which is not supported yet. So I am out of luck! – Ubuntuser May 8 '13 at 6:37
Worked perfectly after pulling my hair out for a while. This dependency needs to be fixed. – chawkinsuf May 20 '13 at 17:11
I also could not create an account. Killed the processes and they showed up! I also had to kill the processes a second time to get my account's folders to show up. All is well since then. – Ethereal Dec 31 '13 at 17:16

you need to at least log out and login again to see the new accounts, you will need to restart for the calendar to start working. at least thats what i had to do on 12.10.
