Thread: Address Book in Evolution

  1. #1

    Default Address Book in Evolution

    I have set up Evolution, but Address Book does not seem to work. Every time I start it, it gives me this message:

    Error loading address book.

    We were unable to open this address book. Please check that the path /home/kirill/.evolution/addressbook/local/system exists and that you have permission to access it.

    Detailed error: Other error
    I did check the path, it is there, and I do have correct authorizations (read/write) Please advise.

    Close Evolution and try renaming the *.db files under that path (i.e.,
    file.db.backup) to allow Evolution recreate them on start.

    I have the same problem since openSuse 11.0 and i have never resolved it. The solution offered here did not work for me. I also tried to cancel the db-files and to cancel the directory in .gconf but the error reappears. I also worked with gnome in mandriva, fedora and ubuntu with the same files and version of evolution and there it works. It is only an opensuse bug and it is a pitty because i like to work with opensuse and i like gnome.
    I tried on my 64bit pc and on my fujitsu notebook and also on the asus eeepc of my wife. The problem remains. Any idea?
