comment How to install monitorx?
To save you the hazzle of manually downloading and solving the dependencies, you could also use the repository at apt.izzysoft.de with your sources.list – and the side-effect of receiving updates automatically. // Disclosure: I'm the above mentioned packager and the repository owner/maintainer. I work together closely with Jordi (dev of Monitorix) on this package, so updates are usually coming in-time.

comment Access local email stored on worstation on laptop on lan
Please do! And if you feel I should compile that combination to an answer (i.e. once you've got it working, so it might include additional hints/pitfalls you encountered), just let me know. Good luck meanwhile!

You might want to take a look at Sharing Evolution Mail local folders. Not entirely the same, but have those folders shared via e.g. Samba might bring things together.

comment Evolution: Unable to open address book
Have you taken care for the Gnome settings daemon? As that folder is about this one, it might need a restart. See also my answer here – slightly different issue, but the details might prove helpful.

Maybe you forgot to copy ~/.gconf/apps/evolution?

comment Evolution error failed to append to local sent folder
Chrissie: While checking for the file system, can you also check the size of that file? Furthermore: How many messages are stored in there (maybe it could help splitting up and archiving some of them)?

Related: Using evolution in Ubuntu comes up with this error when I send mail / Problem in Evolution @ Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / evolution error: mbox sent folder invalid URI (EDIT: only related, there it's no size issue; missed that on my first check)

comment How to reset evolution settings to defaults?
Sure – but that's the idea behind a reset, isn't it? And OP explicitly asked to "start from the scratch" – which wouldn't be possible with your 3 commands, sorry.

comment remove 8.04 repositories in 12.04?
Though the Hardy repos are obsolete in your case, your question helped me to get the repos working again on one of my old machines not yet migrated. Thanks for that!

comment Can't uninstall old kernel
I never tried that, but the man page mentions a parameter named -m aka --ignore-missing. So you could try sudo apt-get purge -m linux-image-3.2.0-29-generic-pae. The error message looks like you already tried to update, and that partly started but then broke due to lack of free space, so apt now sees some "inconsistent state". Having it ignore that might enable you to remove that package. However, make sure you have at least one working linux-image left, or your system might break completely (3.2.0-32 could still be there I guess).
