Re: [Evolution] toolbar display text

"gnome" is not a window manager, btw.  I dont use a "gnome" window
manager either, yet i have those other applications available (referring
to your last mail), if i want.

You need to set it to the correct value or it will be treated as

I use "text", maybe you want "both", i'm not sure what it is, because i
find icons a useless waste of space.

Evolution never had its own setting for the toolbar, nor should it, it
is a desktop-wide feel thing, having every application use its own
setting is just stupid and annoying.

I think the key is /desktop/gnome/interface/toolbar_style

Thanks anyway, NZ :-)  As noted in my other replies to this helpful
suggestion, I don't use gnome and system-wide settings applicable to
gnome have no effect on my copy of evo running under Xfce4 - however I
set that key it does nothing to evo's toolbar :-(  

The problem _seems_ to centre on evo to have got rid of its own control
for the toolbar.  I can change it with galeon because it has kept its
own toolbar control :-/  It's also not a fault of Xfce4 (as far as I
see) because I have a copy of evo on one PC with text AND icons
inherited by upgrading from earlier evo versions.  So, still looking for
an "evolution-specific, window-manager-independent" way of changing
evo's toolbar.  All suggestions welcome :-)

I feel like such a _noob_ asking this after using evo for a couple of

I have text and icons on my toolbar by default  - always have since the
first version I started with a couple of years ago.  Now here's the rub:
I'm setting up evo for a new user on a thin-client running on my linux
terminal server and they only have icons - no text with it.

I've read the help, I've gone through gconf-editor with a fine-tooth
comb, I've gone through the settings, and I've googled on it.  I just
can't find any reference to text AND icons in evo.  Put me out of my
misery and kick me in the right direction :-)  PLEASE.

PS: I'm sure someone will tell me the setting is right in front of my
nose and what's wrong with me :-(
