I'm trying to build pantheon-mail again and having problems installing the build dependencies using this command

$ sudo apt-get build-dep pantheon-mail Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done E: Unable to find a source package for pantheon-mail

deb-src entries in sources.list

$ sudo grep "deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/" /etc/apt/sources.list deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty main restricted deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates main restricted deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty universe deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates universe deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty multiverse deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates multiverse deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-backports main restricted universe multiverse

You must add a repository from elementary OS team in order to download the source package for pantheon-mail. Try:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update 

Open Software and Updates and look for new repository added. Mark line for sources an close. When it ask you to update source.list, accept it.

Warning:

Beware of upgrade or dist-upgrade meanwhile you make build-dep.

When you have finished:

sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:elementary-os/daily
sudo apt-get update 

To remove the repository.
