Re: [Evolution] Questions about Help and Signature files - Evolution 1.4.5

2. How can I edit a signature file? I setup a signature file through
Tools->Settings, Edit my email account. I can select different
signatures and create new signatures, but I cannot find a way to edit or
delete one of the existing signatures. Do I have to do this outside of
evolution? Where are the files stored?

To edit/manage/delete your signatures, see:
 Tools / Settings / Composer Preferences / Signatures

The signatures are stored in your ~/evolution/signatures/ directory. New
signatures are generated with file names like signature-X, where X is a
number. These files are associated with user provided descriptive names
using GConf keys.

Spoiler: Now, if you wanna play around with this [1] you can. Sure, you
can mess with the relevant GConf keys, but symlinks perfectly work. So
you can have that files point somewhere else. I have my signatures
living ~/.signatures/. This may be handy, if you have to use another
mailer some times, sharing sigs. As if anyone would want to... ;)

See your old signatures or create a new one, using some unique text.
Remove the relevant signature file and create a symlink pointing to your
existing one.


[1]  Actually, only IF you want. This is more for the archives and any
curious readers, who wanna customize Evo some more.

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
