Smile How do I install ypop on ubuntu 9.04?


I'm runing Ubuntu 9.04 and have a free yahoo e-mail account. I was trying to set up my e-mail with evolution, but I guess because I have a free account with yahoo they don't provide pop service. How do I download, install and run ypop to get around it. I tried synaptic package manager but it didn't have the program. Is there another way to set up my e-mail besides pop if ypop doesn't install?

I *think* I may have had ypop working a few years back, but at some point it stopped working and after trying a few other similar progs with limited or no success, I stumbled upon fetchyahoo:

fetchyahoo.twizzler.org

There's a *relatively* easy conf file that you have to edit to get it working.

The maintainer seems to be fairly active (yahoo often make changes on their end which bork these solutions) and he's on top of things when yahoo's changes prevent fetchyahoo from working properly.

hth,

cheers,

Repo, I tried the site that you gave me and when I get to the command $ sudo apt-key add tskariah.gpg
gpg: can't open `tskariah.gpg': No such file or directory
is the output. What should I do?

Seems
$ wget http://tskariah.000webhost.com/t_skariah.asc.gpg
doesn't work
The site doesn't exist.

Try
Code:
wget -O t_skariah.asc.gpg 'http://tskariah.net78.net/t_skariah.asc.gpg'
sudo apt-key add t_skariah.asc.gpg
Add the following line to the bottom of your /etc/apt/sources.list file

Code:
deb http://tskariah.net78.net/ubuntu ubuntu main
Then
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ypops

I got to ~$ sudo apt-get install ypops
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package ypops

everything before that went through fine. I also deleted deb http://tskariah.000webhost.com/ubuntu ubuntu main
from the /etc/apt/sources.list file but since the site is down I don;t think that made a difference

I also get an error
Quote:
Err http://tskariah.net78.net ubuntu/main Packages
Sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)
Perhaps the package isn't available any more.
Try to search google for a deb file

it's unfortunate but i read on the net that ypops has a trojan, so I guess I'll pass on it.
