The PST-importer plugin will only build if the library (libpst) is

available (because it has not yet been accepted), so Evolution
2.26.0 did *not* get the plugin.

The easiest way to build your own Evolution:

1. install the libpst from the PPA (or download the sources from
REVU, and build & install it locally).
2. 'sudo apt-get build-dep evolution' (this will install *all* build
dependencies for Evolution)
3. 'sudo apt-get -b source evolution' (this will download the source
Evolution package, and immediately build it. It will take some
time). 4. The result of the build will be a series of '.deb's on
the directory. Install them: 'sudo dpkg -i *.deb. You do not need
to install the .ddeb. 5. restart Evolution.

maybe I'm wrong, but I've a wild guess. Plugins are supposed to work
separately from main evolution code, thus I think that installing
devel packages for evolution, (and maybe also evolution-data-server
and gtkhtml), and source package for evolution only, and not
compile&install whole evolution, but only
evolution/plugins/pst-import should work.

Heh. Not a wild guess at all, Milan ;-)

Indeed, just rebuilding evolution/plugins/pst-import will do the trick.

But this would not rebuild the UBuntu package (either
evolution-plugins, or evolution-plugins-experimental, I do not remember
which), and I wanted to give the *easiest* way to get it done. Of
course, this is not the *fastest* way...

And I was not sure how much knowledge the reporter has on building from
source, anyway.
