 Hi all,
 
 I'm trying to realize a script to autoconfigure evolution in my

 not by directly editing evolution configuration files in my home dir.
 
 Right now I'm studing the content of the /apps/evolution/mail/accounts
 gconf key and I don't understand the real meaning of the uid field found
 in this key. It looks like: uid=12396495851.653...@pastore-desktop.
 
 What is the real meaning of the digits in this field and where does
 evolution find them or how does evolution calculate them?
 
 
 Thank you in advance

Take a look at this:

Not sure what state it's in but it might be a better starting point.

 So you suggest to learn another language? ;-)
 

Sure why not, it's always good for the brain:-)

[Evolution-hackers] Config from command line

2008-10-31 Thread George Farris
HI all,

I'm trying to write a script to configure Evolution from the command
line.  I want to configure these things:

Incoming IMAP mail server
Outgoing smarthost
LDAP Contacts
Caldav server

Is there an easy way to set these instead of going through the first run
wizard?

Thanks all

Re: [Evolution-hackers] evolution and ldap contacts

 Hi,
 
 I've been trying in my spare time to dip my feet in the LDAP contacts
 backend because, well, there's lots of stuff that it does wrong for me
 to the point where it's close to unusable in my real life use.
 
 I'm starting small, and I have some questions that I've already asked
 various people IRL or on IRC, but nobody seems to have a good idea, so I
 thought I'd join and ask here instead.
 
 1) Does anyone know why the LDAP backend first does an anonymous bind
 (which my servers for obvious reasons don't allow) to decide if the
 server is up at all ? I don't see the point of not using the credentials
 configured here.
 
 2) Is there anything in evolution checeking the
 GNOME_Evolution_Addressbook_CallStatus returned from some of the calls ?
 It is hugely annoying to not have any clue at all *why* a contact
 backend fails.  It got slightly better in evo 2.22 (which shows Error
 loading addressbook in the widget you get when you click To/CC/Bcc) but
 not by much.  Where should I go dig in the Evolution code to show some
 useful error messages because of CallStatus returns ?
 
 3) One of the possible reasons of failure for an LDAP backend is not
 having the certificate installed, which is an especially important part
 to warn about and provide a solution for.  Should I reuse an existing
 CallStatus (like AuthenticationFailed) or add one for this case ?
 
 4) Anyone have an idea why right-clicking on an address in a mail,
 adding it to addressbook, then selecting an LDAP backend, claims that
 the backend is readonly, while it works fine when I go to it in the
 contacts view ? My eds debug console shows no LDAP activity meanwhile,
 it's not even trying to write to the LDAP server.  This is new in 2.22 -
 I didn't have this behaviour in previous releases.
 
 
 Any help on these questions would be much appreciated, because I look
 forward to have a working LDAP contacts backend.
 

Here is a feature request.  Make the LDAP view return a list of contacts
or at least a partial, user selectable number of contacts and display
them without having to do a manual search.  Basically make it work like
the contacts on the local hard drive.

Thanks

I completely agree.  I know of myself and at least two others running
Hardy with Evolution Exchange backend and it is unusable because the
exchange backend keeps dying.

[Evolution-hackers] LDAP Address book patching

2008-02-24 Thread George Farris
Greetings,

I would like to create a patch to browse the LDAP database when one
clicks on the view. Can anyone provide pointers to help get me started? 

I have a number of customers that are using Evolution and not being able
to have the LDAP addressbook act like the Personal addressbook makes
them crazy.  This is for addressbooks of 200 contacts or less but
globally shared.

Any pointers of where to start looking in the code would be great.  I
believe this is a fairly simple thing to implement.  I could be totally
wrong however.

Cheers
