Re: [Evolution] Contact autocompletion

Hi Milan,

After deleting ~/.cache/evolution/addressbook/ and repopulating it, the problem has disappeared.

For the record, `/usr/libexec/evolution-addressbook-factory -w` gives no message at all.

Thanks a lot,

it uses the local cache. You can remove it in
then restart all the evolution processes, especially those in the
background (which come from evolution-data-server), for example with
`evolution --force-shutdown`, thus let evolution-ews to recreate the
book content from scratch. The book should be marked for auto-
completion, which can be found in the Properties of that book. I
suppose it is marked for it though.

You can make a similar search, as the auto-completion does, when you
click the magnifier icon on the left of the Search entry and change the
search kind to the one you would like to test in the Contacts view.
Like the Name contains might be one of those, which is also the default
search type.

You can run:
   $ /usr/libexec/evolution-addressbook-factory -w
from a terminal, then run evolution, to see whether it shows anything
useful there when trying to search, like a runtime warning or such.

These are just few things which can be tried to further debug the
