Re: [Evolution] 'Cannot initialize Evolution shell' error

I too have get the Evolution shell error and I even posted a gdb 
traceback, but no one responded. I have made *4* attempts to get an 
answer and no one has responded except those who said "I have the same 
problem and no one responded".

  OK, the reason for this is simply that OAF doesn't make it easy for us
to figure out what is wrong.

  If the shell reports that it cannot be initialized, it simply means
that OAF couldn't register it as a component.  Unfortunately, OAF
doesn't return a helpful error code, so we cannot pop up a more useful
error message nor easily figure out what is wrong with your machine.

  The only thing I am sure about is that this should never ever happen
with the Ximian packages.  It is caused by either a nasty OAF bug that
we don't know about, or simply an installation problem.

  Anyway, try checking these things:

    * Make sure that GNOME_Evolution_Shell.oaf and the other
      GNOME_Evolution*.oaf files are installed in $prefix/share/oaf.
      (If you install from RPMs, that would be /usr/share/oaf.)  These
      files must be readable by yourself.

    * Make sure there are no old evolution-related .oafinfo files that
      are not installed by the packages in $prefix/share/oaf nor any
      other of the prefixes listed in eitehr GNOME_PATH or

  My feeling is that you installed something by hand or forced some
dependencies (or maybe mixed packages), and that your system is now not
100% clean.

  I hope this helps, and sorry for your troubles.
