I would like to tryout Pantheon Mail (a Geary fork by Elementary OS) on Ubuntu (15.10). I found their code hosting but I can't find how to install that. There's also a Q&A about building from source on Elementary, but those steps don't work for me (apt-get can't find the pantheon-mail package).

I've tried adding ppa:elementary-os/stable and ppa:elementary-os/daily but this doesn't help. The stable one gives a 404 when doing an apt-get update, and the daily one works but still pantheon-mail package can not be found.

Googling for [ppa pantheon mail], I only find explanations about installing the whole Elementary/Pantheon desktop, which is not what I'm after.

Is there a way to install Elementary's Pantheon Mail on Ubuntu? Is there a PPA? Do I need to build from source and then how to?

    I'm voting to close this question because there were no upvoted answer and community bumped this so that it can be answered. But 15.10 being EOL now, we can't verify the answer I think

    @Lode that's nice. Are you still having it with non-EOL ubuntu? If yes, then please remove the version tag. I'll vote to reopen the question.

    Right now I was able to successfully install the package pantheon-mail after adding ppa:elementary-os/stable to the list on Ubuntu 16.04.

You can download .deb file at launchpad, for example then manually install. It works fine for me, some icons are missing, look better than Geary (Ubuntu 16.04). Of course, you need to install any required dependencies.

You can do so by this command

sudo apt-get -f install
