Question Is there any way I can get evolution reinstalled?


Hi
Shortly after I started using Ubuntu I deinstalled evolution, because, well I didn't use it anyway. Deinstalling in this case means I deleted every package that had evolution in it's name and wouldn't drag the whole gnome desktop after it. By now I realize that that was probably not the best idea.
Well, I wanted to reinstall it, because another program requires it.
But I got an error message that evolution depends on Evolution-common, which wouldn't be installed. "roughly translated from German". When I wanted to install evolution-common I was told that it was already the newest version.
I realize that I probably got something messed up. But is there any way to get evolution reinstalled?
regards, Guenni

I'm not sure, but perhaps opening synaptic, and removing evolution-common, and then installing evolution afterwards, would work.

Did you removed the files, or used the package manager?

Hallo
@repo: I used the package manager.
The problem solved itself, more or less. I hadn't removed evolution-commons. I assumed it was because it wanted to drag half of the desktop after it. But this time there weren't any other packages mentioned during the confirmation message. So I removed it. Afterwards I could install evolution just fine. *shrugs*
Thanks anyway, Guenni

If the problem is solved, you can mark the thread solved for further references, using the thread tools.

Hi
Either I'm just not getting it, or you can't reach the thread tools without a mouse.
If the latter is the case, than I can't. Since I'm blind and a screen reader user: I can't really use the rodent.
