Re: [Evolution] Evo 1.4.6 to Evo 2.2, SuSE to Ubuntu

No. And somehow, I managed to screw-up an .xsession file in the process
and now can no longer even login to Ubuntu!  :-( So close and yet, so
far away ...

Quick any dirty solution: Create a new user (see 'man useradd'), copy
the .xsession file to your screwed users $HOME and adjust UID and GID to
that user.

You should own all the files (recursively) in ~/.evolution/mail/local
and have at least read and write permissions (u+rw) as well as
read/write/execute permissions (u+rwx) on the dirs.

Do you have this?

Yes, that's what I did, but it didn't change anything - I was still
getting the same error message. It was subsequent to that that I did
something (most of my major screw-ups come late at night when I'm tired
..) that caused me not to be able to login. I'm not sure what I did. I'm
not going to re-install because I think it will solve the basic problem
- I'm going to do it just so that I can get back to the point of being
able to login.

Re-Installing the entire system just for the purpose of creating a user?

Switch to a console (Ctrl-Alt-F1), log in as root and create a new user
(see 'man useradd'). Log in as that user to your graphical Desktop
(Alt-F7) and from that working account see what the issue with your
existing one is, compare the hidden dot files.

There are a gazillion other ways of repairing the broken account, short
of re-installing everything...
