geary 0.4.3 Linux Mint 16

Yorba has released Geary email client 0.4.3, which fixed “squished” conversation list when used with certain themes and added compile-time support for WebKitGTK 2.0.

If you’re on Mint 16 Cinnamon, you may upgrade to Geary 0.4.3 to avoid this display problem.

Geary 0.4.3

Yorba’s PPA has built the packages for Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10, Linux Mint 14/15/16. Press Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard to open terminal. When it opens, run commands below one by one to install it:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:yorba/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install geary

For Ubuntu 12.04 Precise and Elementary OS Luna, use the backports ppa to install Geary 0.4.2 (neither of the above problems should affect users of this backports version)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tombeckmann/geary

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install geary

  1. Thanks for this! Didn’t realise there was an update and the text issue was obviously a let down.
