Re: [Evolution] LDAP search

Aahhh...the amazing disappearing config entries problem...

What you need to do is make sure that Evo is not running before you edit
the config.xmldb file.  Do this be running either killev or oaf-slay
from the command line.  After doing that you should be safe to edit the
file.  Apparently Evo writes it's config out to the config.xmldb file
during it's shutdown process, so it never really reads your edits, and
doesn't know they're there when it writes the file again.

If it's 1.08 or earlier, the "fix" is to manually edit config.xmldb in
you~/evolution directory......

Inside config.xmldb. 

<snip lots of stuff> 
<?xml version="1.0"?> 
  <section path="/Addressbook/Completion"> 
    <entry name="uri" type="string"

The setup info is the same as whatever you have in the other contacts
folder for that server.

I ahve tried to add the following lines in ~/evolution/config.xmldb :

<section path="/Addressbook/Completion">
   <entry name="uri" type="string" 

Problem is that when I start evolution
a) it doesn't work
b) when I look at the config.xmldb the lines I added have disappeared

Any idea why I can't make it work?



PS: I have also tried to add these lines in 
~/evolution/private/config.xmldb but it doesn't work either.
