I need a patch for
mutt which is called "sidebar" and was a part of the
mutt-patched package in Ubuntu 16.04. Now I've switched to Ubuntu 18.04 and it does not seem to exist in Ubuntu 18.04's repository.
The only instructions I can find online on how to install the "sidebar" patch is by applying the patch and compiling the package myself. I have the technical know-how to do that, but I don't like using hand-compiled software because then I'll have to manually check for updates instead of using the apt system.
Apt tells me that the package has been replaced by the
[root@bonkwinkler ~]# apt-get install mutt-patched Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package mutt-patched is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source However the following packages replace it: mutt:i386 mutt E: Package 'mutt-patched' has no installation candidate [root@bonkwinkler ~]#
However, when running
mutt, I'm shown a configuration error.
[helgihg@bonkwinkler ~]$ mutt Error in /home/helgihg/.mutt/muttrc, line 47: sidebar_sort: unknown variable Error in /home/helgihg/.mutt/muttrc, line 64: sidebar-scroll-up: no such function in map Error in /home/helgihg/.mutt/muttrc, line 65: sidebar-scroll-down: no such function in map Error in /home/helgihg/.mutt/muttrc, line 66: sidebar-scroll-up: no such function in map Error in /home/helgihg/.mutt/muttrc, line 67: sidebar-scroll-down: no such function in map
So the patches in the old
mutt-patched package do not seem to be included in the regular
Does anyone have information about this, that might shed light on the problem?
