Geary 0.4.2 has "squished" mail list

Post by cmost » Sat Mar 15, 2014 2:48 pm

I am using LMDE UP8 tracking testing. I installed Geary from the repos and was delighted with it except the mail list pane is all "squished." I did some research and discovered that Yorba, the app's developer fixed the issue with Geary 0.4.3 which is available for Linux Mint 16 and the Ubuntu flavors. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in LMDE due to unsatisfiable dependencies. I tried compiling a deb myself from the source, but got caught up in dependency hell. I would like this app to be updated in LMDE too. Any chance of that happening, or alternately, anyone who's compiling kung fu is better than mine providing a deb? Thanks in advance!

You can file a bug report on Debian bug tracker, asking the maintainer to update the package.

*Update*

Yorba actually released a 0.5.1 development version that I was able to compile after tracking down the dependencies. This version fixes the squished message list issue. But, I'll still wait for an official deb to be built for Debian.
