Customizing Interface

Gnome Evolution - General mailing list
Version: 3.22.6

When I'm in Calendar mode there are three main columns. The one on the right shows which calendars are available, a monthly date range, and tabs to select different Evolution functions. The middle column shows events for a selected date. The right columns shows completed and upcoming Tasks.

What I would like to do is have the details of scheduled events in the middle column displayed in the right column when I click on them, instead of having a list of completed and upcoming Tasks.

Is it possible to customize the interface in this way? How do I do it?

Thanks.

Getting Error Saving Or Deleting Contacts

Graham Sivill
Evolution Version: 3.28.5-0ubuntu0.18.04.1  
O/S: Linux Mint 19.1

Just recently when editing or deleting certain contacts in Evo that are Google Contacts I am getting this error:

Error modifying contact
Contact ID already exists

Can you advise what I should do to fix this.

Graham Sivill

No, there is not. It only exists for the mail view:

Please do NOT hijack random threads. Please start a new topic by
sending a new message, not a reply to a random message.

By looking at the code, finding the bug, and fixing the code. :)

See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=787726#c1 for which
information is needed.

It was not my intention to hijack a thread, I thought if I changed the
subject line that would start a new thread?

I wish I was able to read the code and find the bug and fix it, but I
doubt my programming skills would be up to it. Also I would not be
confident submitting my code in case it broke something else!

I will look at the bug report link you have sent and see if I can work
out what to do.

Graham Sivill

That's not the case. Threading on mailing lists is controlled by In-
Reply-To headers in the message, not by the Subject line. To keep this
working correctly, always introduce a new topic by starting a new
message rather than replying to an existing one.

Also, it's recommended to use Reply To List (Ctrl-L) rather than Reply
To All. Unfortunately, once someone breaks the chain by using Reply To
All, replies to that message can no longer use Reply To List. However,
this doesn't break threading so seriously as hijacking.

Patrick, thanks for the clarification. I will try not to mess up the
list in future.

I tried to add my two cents to Bugzilla but since I rebooted my machine
this morning it appears the error message has gone away as when I ran
the commands and started the logging and then tried to edit the contact
that previously was throwing the error it now doesn't do it and works
perfectly. So I was not able to log anything useful for Milan to use in
tracking down what causes this error.

How do I turn the logging back off these were the commands I entered:

   $ export G_MESSAGES_DEBUG=all
   $ export LIBGDATA_DEBUG=255
   $ /usr/lib/evolution/evolution-addressbook-factory -w

I closed Evo and then closed the command window but am not familiar
with what the above commands do, so don't know if it's still running
something in the background.

Graham Sivill

Once again, please post this as a separate topic. Continuing the thread
here is just compounding the error. This is not mere draconian rule-
enforcement. No-one who decides to skip the original Subject line of
this thread will even see your posts.
