These may seem like a pretty basic question to many on this list and
they probably are however I need to ask. I'm not new to Linux or Gnome
in fact I've been running Linux for at least 10yrs now. I recently
switched to Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS after my old Mandriva box finally gave in
and died. During one of my software installs (can't remember which it
was) I upgraded Gnome from 3.10 which comes with 14.04 to 3.12.2 (or is
this just Gnome-Shell)?

The packages in Ubuntu 14.04 is a mix of pieces from 3.6 to 3.10.

My version of Evolution is 3.12.7 which I've
reported several bug on and I've been told have been fixed in .8.
Question being, and hopefully someone will help me out, how do I upgrade
Evolution to 3.12.8 without totally breaking my system, or is it even

The best solution would be to get an update from the same place where
you got the 3.12 updates. Hopefully whoever made that package will
provide an updated package, but you might have to ping them about it.

If that's not happening then building Evolution from source is another
alternative. You might have to install a number of development packages.
Running 'apt-get build-dep evolution' should hopefully be enough. A tool
like jhbuild can also help with this.


Morning Marcus, thank you for the quick reply. After reading the above I
went and Googled ubuntu + evolution 3.12.8 and came up with this:

If I'm reading this correctly, and I'm probably not, does the word
PROPOSED mean that if approved or whatever this will end up in the
repositories as an update?

My understanding is that proposed is something that will eventually get
into the main repository, but I'm not sure since I don't use Ubuntu
that much myself.

However, it looks like those packages are specific to Vivid, which is
the codename for the upcoming Ubuntu 15.04 release. It is possible that
they will work on 14.04 as well, but I wouldn't count on it.
