Cannot delete address book

Andrea Vai
Hi,
  I am running evo 3.22.6 (Fedora 25) and I'm afraid I have one
misconfigured address book.

I have an account set up in Google Online Accounts and enabled for
"Contacts". The contacts from the address book show correctly in
evolution, and this address book seems working.

But there is another item with the same name in the left pane (the
appearence is:

[down arrow]<email address>
              Contacts

, exactly the same as the "working" one). If I click on "contacts", it
shows the same contacts, so I would like to delete it. How can I get
rid of it?

If I right-click on it, there is no "delete" option.

If I disable the account in GOA, the working address book disappears
from evo (as expected), but the "faulty" one remains listed.

Moreover, from time to time an error appears in the upper bar: "cannot
  perform the search" [translation mine], and sometimes (not sure if
related to the error) I notice that evolution-address-book factory
increases my CPU and memory utilization to very high values.

Thank you very much for your help,
Andrea

        Hi,
it looks like the address book is tight to a GOA account, maybe one
already removed, even the evolution-data-server didn't notice it
properly for some reason.

I suggest to search
   ~/.config/evolution/sources/
for all .source files which contain "GNOME Online Accounts", then
delete these files, together with all of which are referencing them
(the file name, without the .source extension, is written in the other
.source files).

That would require more data, debugging, steps... Maybe you face

thank you for the suggestion: so I closed Evolution, then

grep GNOME ~/.config/evolution/sources/*

gave me one result only (1461768503.4127.0@....source), and I deleted
it (moved elsewhere). Then,

grep 1461768503 ~/.config/evolution/sources/*

gave no results, so I started Evolution again but the item is still
there :-( could I try anything else? [tried running from command line,
but output shows no relevant info]

ok I will investigate it separately, moving to the other thread if
needed

Thank you very much,

        Hi,
the GOA-configured accounts are stored also in
   ~/.cache/evolution/sources/
but I thought you have there a leftover from a different GOA account,
thus I didn't mention it earlier.

Check both places for .source files which contain
   [Address Book]

or your user email address, basically the name you see in the GUI. One
(or more) of them will be address books, one will be the orphan.

Try to restart also evolution-source-registry, after which you might
start all other running services. The easiest might be to kill the
evolution-source-registry, then do changes in the .source files, then
run `evolution --force-shutdown`, which makes sure the background
processes and closed in the right order, even under GNOME Shell, which
keeps restarting evolution-calendar-factory, when it is lost on D-Bus.
        Bye,
        Milan

I think I've finally managed to sort it out, so many thanks again!

By the way: at the moment I found out that the "memory leak" seems to
be related to setting "0" as refresh interval in the google address-
book. Let me know if it's a known issue, if I have to provide more
details here, start a new thread or file a bug.

Bye,
Andrea

        Hi,
the refresh interval means how often to check for changes in the
address book/calendar/.... Setting it to zero means constant checking
for changes, which is not a good idea. I'd say the bug here is that the
zero is allowed at the first place. New bug report for that sounds
good.
        Bye,
        Milan

whoops, sorry ...in many environments an interval set to 0 have the
special meaning of "never do it", so I took it for granted here, also
:-/

ok, filed at

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=785393


, with a thought about using "0" as described above.

Thank you,
Andrea
