[Evolution] Re: No LDAP Password Prompt

I am using Debian Sarge and Evolution 2.0.4. I have set up my own  
LDAP service, and it works fine with everything except Evolution. An  
attempt to open an LDAP address book in Evolution results in an error  
message roughly like this: "Unable to open address book. The URL may  
be incorrect or the host may be unreachable." Evolution does not even  
attempt to prompt for a password. I looked at the slapd debug output,  
and it appears that Evolution is attempting to use an unsupported  
certificate-based authentication. Can Evolution be set up to use a  
simple password login, or am I stuck with setting up a more complex  
LDAP configuration? I'm new to LDAP, so I need simple but thorough  
guidance. Any help is appreciated.

The simplest authentication is "Use SSL: Never" and "Authentication
method: Anonymous" in your LDAP folder's preferences. Also make sure that
the LDAP server grants read access to the client (which is the default).
You might want to add to your /etc/ldap/slapd.conf Evo's schema:

include /usr/share/evolution-data-server-1.0/evolutionperson.schema
