 +====== cone MUA ======
  
 +{{ cone.png?150|cone screenshot}} [[http://www.courier-mta.org/cone/cone00index.html|cone]] is a console mailclient with an nCurses interface. It looks a lot like [[http://www.washington.edu/pine/|Pine]] but is GPL licensed, comes with integrated GPG support and is better than Pine in various other ways.
 +
 +Installing is easy. Here is how to do it (using [[stow]] to manage the package).
 +
 +  $> wget http://mesh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/courier/cone-0.61.tar.bz2
 +  $> tar -xjvf cone-0.61.tar.bz2
 +  $> cd cone-0.61/
 +  $> ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/stow/cone-0.61
 +  $> make
 +  #> make install
 +  #> make install-configure
 +  #> cd /usr/local/stow/
 +  #> stow cone-0.61
 +
 +The current version is always available for download at [[http://www.courier-mta.org/?download.php~cone]]
 +
 +===== Troubleshooting =====
 +
 +The ''configure'' script doesn't check all requirements correctly. You need to install at least these two libraries:
 +
 +  #> apt-get install libssl-dev libxml2-dev
 +
 +Cone needs a recent compiler! Compiling with GCC/G++ 2.95 will fail with the following error:
 +
 +  mail.C:301: macro `LIBMAIL_THROW' used without args
 +
 +And comiling with GCC/G++ 3.0 fails wih this error:
 +
 +  libmail.a(headers.o)(.text+0x22ae): In function `mail::Header::mime::fromString(std::string)':
 +  /root/cone-0.62/libmail/headers.C:157: undefined reference to `mail::Header::Header(mail::Header const&)'
 +  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
 +
 +**You need GCC/G++ 3.2 to compile it successful**. Giving GCC/G++ 3.2 as environment variable does __not__ work -- some parts of the compile process simply ignore it. Instead change the symlinks in ''/usr/bin'':
 +
 +  #> apt-get install gcc-3.2 g++-3.2
 +  #> rm /usr/bin/gcc
 +  #> ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-3.2 /usr/bin/gcc
 +  #> rm /usr/bin/g++
 +  #> ln -s /usr/bin/g++-3.2 /usr/bin/g++
 +
 +A correct locale needs to be set to run cone. If this is not already done try this:
 +
 +  #> dpkg-reconfigure locales
