    Default Evolution doesn't start

    Hello,
    I have openSUSE 11.0 (x86_64) with latest updates and I installed from Yast->Software->Software Management the Evolution packages and additional dependencies as requested by the Package Manager, rebooted the system, but when I start from the Aplication Launcher->New Applications->Evolution Email nothing happens. I tried to start both as root and as user from command line "evolution" and it fails with the error messages below. Do you have any idea how to fix this? Thank you in advance.

    Try renaming your hidden .evolution folder to .evolutionold

    I have a feeling the plugin enabled there is no longer supported.

    You should be able to import mail and addresses etc.. from the old folder later

    No, renaming it didn't work, I tried to remove it completely, but still Evolution doesn't start. It never did, but the folder is created again.

    I'm not sure then. Maybe a gnome user will spot this and have some input.

    I have the same problem.
    I have SUSE 11.0 installed and had Evolution 2.22 working fine.
    But after upgrading to Evolution 2.24 I get the same error as you.
    I believe that there is some other library package that needs to
    be upgraded to avoid the "undefined symbol: g_dgettext" but I'm not
    sure which one.
    I guess that a complete upgrade to Suse 11.1 may work and will probably
    do this at some stage.
    But let me know if you find a simpler way to get it working.

    Where did you get Evolution 2.24 for oS 11.0?
    I don't know of a GNOME 2.24 upgrade for 11.0

    What you see is evolution looking for plug-ins of version 2.24, which are not installed. You are missing dependencies, so how did you install Evolution 2.24?

    I used Yast2 and edited the SUSE repository URLs from 11.0 to 11.1
    I could then install Evolution 2.24 via Yast2.
    However there must be some dependencies not correctly recorded
    because I got that error.
    However I have just now fixed it by also upgrading glib and glib2
    to the latest versions.
    Evolution seems to be working now. I just started it and it got past the
    point where I was getting the crash. But is taking some time
    migrating my mail directories (not surprising since there are
    about 100 of them).
    I expect it will be fine now.

    has anyone tried setting the environment variable before starting evolution? I had this issue with thunderbird and executing 'export NSS_USE_SHARED_DB=enabled' worked to work around it. I dont know what is going on..

    Thumbs down Re: Evolution doesn't start

    I have the same issue just occurred with Suse 11.1,
    Gnome version 2.24.1-1.34,
    Evolution 2.24.1.1-4.9.

    I found that for whatever reason, the evolution-mono-providers was uninstalled, not sure how that happened when it was working previously.

    Upon reinstalling it, it still didn't work. Odd that it's asking for the exchange and ldap plugins, since I never used MS Exchange or Ldap. I tried adding those plugins, but still have the same errors.
