Re: [Evolution] very odd problem with evolution

Thank you.  

I hadn't gone into that part of preferences for a long time, years, and
had never seen the options before or I would have tried them.  I had to
use base to get wireless to work.  If I start evolution from a bash
prompt it still throws the error but at least it works.  It was set to
default, whatever that is in Devuan using XFCE4.  

I really appreciate your help.

evolution relies on glib with this, and it relies on other parts of
system, it can be inet, or NetworkManager or maybe other. I guess
update broke this for you. Go to Edit->Preferences->Network
and pick the working online detection method there, instead of using
environment variable. I'd also check NetworkManager settings and
eventually ensure that the used method is NetworkManager (if it's
in your system at all). NetworkManager can have disabled
I can see such option in a context menu of the connection icon in the
system tray/status panel. I do not use XFCE, maybe it's there or
somewhere else.

... but reports the following error: (evolution:16814): Gtk-

I do not think it's related to the networking itself. gtk+ expects
the desktop environment provides certain D-Bus service with certain
API, which did not work for your XFCE desktop. You can ignore these.

I've considered just doing a fresh install ....

I do not think it would help, especially if the fresh install would
bring the same updated packages.
