does the same happen when you open the menu System->Preferences->Look
and Feel->Popup Notifications and click on "Preview" there? If so, then
I guess you have installed more than just MATE desktop in the system,
which would mean you face:
The comment #1 contains a workaround, apart of uninstalling the other
desktop environment.

If it's not it, then I guess you can still log into a text terminal
(for example Ctrl+Alt+F3 , of other Fn key), where you can capture
backtrace of frozen evolution, to see what it is trying to do. That
would be done ideally with debuginfo packages at least for evolution-
data-server and evolution installed, but maybe as a starter it can be
done even without it. The command to use is:

   $ gdb --batch --ex "t a a bt" -pid=`pidof evolution` &>bt.txt

Please check the bt.txt for any private information, like passwords,
email address, server addresses,... I usually search for "pass" at
least (quotes for clarity only).

To return back to the graphical interface use Alt+F1 or Alt+F2 or some
such, your session can be on one of those consoles.

Heh, this is funny. So xdg-desktop-por... (possibly xdg-desktop-portal-
gtk) finally works only under GNOME Shell and nowhere else, or some
parts of it. That's an interesting news to me. (I've no intention to
start a flame war here, it's just funny.)
