Would it not be possible to store the password in gnome-keyring and be shared. The other providers work this way, alarm-daemon would start the authenticated calendars if it finds that the passwords is stored gnome-keyring. It would also check whether the password can be retrieved between intervals AFAICR.
In case a calendar is marked for alarms and if alarm-daemon was not able to retrieve the password, would it be a good idea to show a small warning icon in the panel, which could indicate the issue and mention that evolution needs to be started in order to retrieve the password ? Also inform the user that the password needs to be remembered for alarm-daemon to work fine. > Bye, > Milan > > P.S.: Most likely unrelated, but I see I'm asked for Tasks and Notes > passwords, at least based on the prompts, which should not be needed in > the evolution-alarm-notify, because evolution doesn't support alarms on > these. I dont think the earlier behaviour used to be like this. This should be a bug introduced at some state IMHO. - Chenthill. > > _______________________________________________ > evolution-hackers mailing list > email@example.com > To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... > http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
