How do I transfer my Evolution settings from one computer to another? I tried copying the entire .evolution folder, but the filters and account settings didn't transfer. I got some sort of XML error.
Evolution stores your data in $HOME/.evolution/ , your account settings in $HOME/.gconf/apps/evolution and your passwords in $HOME/.gnome2_private/Evolution SSL Certificates are stored in $HOME/.camel_certs Now how to transfer all Evolution data between computers/to a new partition/to a new computer: Make sure you haven't started Evolution on the new computer/new partition yet. First of all, shut Evolution and its background processes (Evolution Data Server, Evolution Alarm Notify) completely down by using evolution --force-shutdown Then copy the contents of $HOME/.evolution/ $HOME/.gnome2_private/Evolution $HOME/.camel_certs to the new machine. Then dump your Evolution settings stored in GConf by running gconftool-2 --dump /apps/evolution > some-file.xml where some-file.xml is the name of the file the information is written to. On the new computer, make sure you are not running gconf, for example by running ps ax | grep gconf , you normally have to leave gnome for that and then run gconftool-2 --shutdown Then import those settings by running gconftool-2 --load some-file.xml and log in to gnome again.
Also, is it possible to configure Evolution to delete read mail after xx days? It's a PITA to have to go to webmail every few days to delete from my inbox, but I look at mail (through Evolution) on 2 different machines. Outlook and T-Bird have this capability.
This is filed as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201824 , feel free to CC yourself on that bug, as Shres is currently working on this (as far as i know). If you compile Evolution yourself, apply the patch that at comment #38. cheers, andre -- mailto:ak-47 gmx net | failed! http://www.iomc.de
