how to install kmail from ubuntu 17.10 via repo?

Post by deesun » Fri Jan 19, 2018 2:19 pm

hi,

i've got a problem with kmail, the message list does not apply custom font size like here described: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=362803

i need a custom size because of very small display size, so i want to update kmail or kontact to get rid of this bug.
i added the PPA:

Code: Select all

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/kubuntu-ppa/backports/ubuntu artful main
but i does not find a update for kmail?

how do i get kmail 5.4.3 or newer installed?

I have exactly the same problem. It would be really good if someone ha a solution to this.

Moreover I miss features and functions in KMail that are present in a lower version 4.14.2 that came with Mint 17.3, Cinnamon 2.8.8. (my current version is KMail 5.1.3 that came with Mint 18.3, Cinnamon 3.6.6). Examples of features I miss:

- Spellchecking (I get the message "No backend found for spell checking).
* SOLVED * Installing sonnet-plugins solved the issue

(The font size issue of the message list remains)
