You're running evolution as root!!

Not for sure. The OP could use this path for a user too.

I agree that some "solutions" are not good ways to maintain an install,
but it's not important for some users.



On my Linux machine I did something odd too, but perhaps I would think
that you do something odd regarding to audio on your machine ;), assumed
you're not using Linux for pro-audio, as I do. So the OP simply might
have different needs.

I didn't plan to use Evolution by several *nix installs, so on the quick
I used a workaround and since it's working without issues, I don't waste
time for a "better" solution, "just" providing the same.

That's a strange example, I'm sharing a vbox vdi too. However, sometimes
it's not important for a user, to fix a provisional arrangement.

The OP perhaps has got a reason to use the /root path, but might run
Evolution as a user.
