After using Ubuntu since 5.04 I upgraded to 12.04 5 days ago . Then the .evolution folder showed only an empty Tasks folder.
I need to save my mail folder contents (hundreds of emails) but only get errors when I try . Will Mail folders be kept if I remove evolution and re-install? The Contacts and Calender I can rebuild.
I have read many posts and tried starting evolution --offline several times after copying back folders from my .evolution backup with no success. The last attempt showed :
chas@chas-desktop:~$ evolution --offline ** (evolution:5224): CRITICAL **: categories_icon_theme_hack: assertion `filename != NULL && *filename != '\0'' failed (evolution:5224): evolution-shell-CRITICAL **: shell_settings_pspec_for_key: assertion `schema_name != NULL' failed Migrating cached data Migrating config data Migrating local user data
Now the .evolution folder has disappeared.
Thanks for your attention. Chas
