Re: [Evolution] Evolution 1.4.4 performance on KDE 3.1


You may well be right regarding configuration, but what in particular?  I suspect that something is wrong with my gnome configuration in general, because I cannot get evolution to open a web browser if one is already running - all my settings in gnome-control-center seem to get ignored.  I "fixed" it by changing the mozilla script in the mozilla installation.

So far, as you say, all responses seem to be from SuSE 8.2 users.  However, 1.2.2 is OK on the same setup.

sounds like your system is incorrectly configured. This is certainly
*not* an evolution bug if it is only reproducable on SuSE 8.2 (which
seems to be the case based on other responses in this thread).

Make sure that hardware acceleration is working properly
