    Good news for those of you running Sid but what about us poor souls who are running Woody (or God forbid Potato :-))

    Any ideas as to if/when we'll see Evolution?

    Palm syncing (Score: 1)
    by Martijn on Friday, December 07 @ 09:11:04 GMT
    (User Info)

    Has anyone succeeded in syncing the addressbook with the Palm addressbook? It has worked for me once or twice in the 0.x releases, but that has been quite a while ago.

    Even with 1.0, gpilotd starts up fine. Pressing the sync button is detected and gpilotd fires the eaddrconduit. However, it just prints out

    eaddrconduit-Message: ---------------------------------------------------------

    eaddrconduit-Message: pre_sync: Addressbook Conduit v.0.1.2

    and then it simply dies. After some period of time the Palm pops up a window saying syncing went wrong. gpilotd doesn't do anything and I have to kill it.

    Other people seeing this? Does it work for you?

    I went to install Evolution 1.0 from Ximian on my Potato-based laptop...

    apt-get install evolution..

    It said it needed _102MB!!!!_ to install. And I don't even get spell check in there.

    Anyway, I did it, couldn't set my default account up to be IMAP, got ticked off, uninstalled it and grabbed sylpheed claws. Works great, integrates nicely with J-Pilot's address book.

    Poof! JPilot/Sylpheed give me more than all of Evolution, do so without fuss and fanfare, and for under 10MB. With spellcheck.


    102 MB!! That's almost the size of my entire KDE2.2 or Gnome 1.4 installs!!!!

    What all are they stuffing in there??

    My Evolution refuses to remember my password, which is quite irritating when I'm using only IMAP. Then I have to go to the folder list, click local inbox, send&receive mail, THEN enter my password... Is this expected behaviour? Has always been like that, at least from 0.8...

    I got a new monster of a PC a month ago or so, and decided that I'd go ahead and install all the apps that previously really sucked because I had not the processor or memory to give to them. The two most notable being nautilus and evolution.

    Nautilus lasted for about a week before I decided it was more trouble than it was worth. I can filemanage from a gnome-terminal more efficiently than I can from nautilus.

    Evolution lasted until yesterday. It does look pretty, and I really like the ease with which you can create mailing list filters, but all that excess baggage just kept bugging me. I don't mind eye-candy or snazzy Outlook-esque features, but unfortunately I really don't use that stuff at home very much. So, yesterday I switched back to sylpheed. Now my email program pops up immediately after I click the icon, and while my address book isn't as glitzy, it does all I need, and I have yet to miss VFolders, Calandars, Task Lists, Journals, etc.

    Anyway, I think evolution is a nice program, and might be well suited in a business environment, but for my simple home use, it just does too much of what I don't need.

    Shared Calendar / Groupware? (Re: Evolution 1.0) (Score: 0)
    by Anonymous on Sunday, December 09 @ 20:34:22 GMT


    the one and only thing I like in Outlook is it's shared Calendar thing -- and it's a real good thing for organizations.

    A "connector" to MS Exchange is on the way, but in (a bit) older news is written, that ximian plans to do an own "calendar server" some day.

    Is there something on the way or just hidden in evolution?
