We want to migrate from Windows to Ubuntu linux. In the past we used Evolution client to our mail server (Novell GroupWise 2012). This mail servers uses SOAP protocol. In the past there was an option to use SOAP (GroupWise) in Evolution. This seems to be removed.
After some googling I came accross this : Is Groupwise not supported in Evolution? This thread had a solution to patch the latest Evolution with SOAP (GroupWise). I tried this on my Ubuntu 13.10 but errors occur. This solution was made for Ubuntu 11.
These are the steps:
1. Install git (sudo apt-get install git) 2. git clone git://git.gnome.org/evolution-groupwise 3. cd evolution-groupwise 4. git checkout -b 3.2.0-patch EVOLUTION_GROUPWISE_3_2_0 5. git cherry-pick 3aae80f55d5fd565274f19210564e74d5350a66c # This is the patch for the SOAP port bug 6. Open configure.ac, at about line 48 add the line AC_CHECK_LIB(gthread-2.0, g_thread_init) 7. sudo apt-get build-dep evolution 8. ./autogen.sh 9. make 10. sudo make install 11. Edit /etc/services like bruhein describes
On step 8 an error occured.
configure: error: Package requirements (libedataserverui-3.0 >= 3.2.0) were not met: No package 'libedataserverui-3.0' found Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBEDATASERVERUI_CFLAGS and LIBEDATASERVERUI_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Then I tried to install the missing dependency without success.
root@ubuntu:~/evolution-groupwise# apt-get install libedataserverui-3.0-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package libedataserverui-3.0-dev 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: evolution-data-server-doc E: Package 'libedataserverui-3.0-dev' has no installation candidate
Can somebody help me with this?
Thanks in advance.
Small update: In the next release their will be native Mac support, which means it will probably work for imap clients like evolution: https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/groupwise-blog-native-mac-integration-groupwise-cornell/
