    Default Restoring Evolution 2.32.1.2 settings into Evolution 2.30

    I have been using Fedora 14, which has Evolution 2.32.1 but have recently also installed openSUSE 11.3, which has Evolution 2.30.1.2. I would like to make openSUSE my primary distribution, and so I would like to restore my Evolution settings from Fedora, but Evolution complains that the backup file is invalid.

    I have tried copying the folders in the backup to their appropriate locations in openSUSE with no luck. I have also tried manually copying with instructions for older versions of openSUSE, but with no luck.

    An obvious guess at what might be the problem seems to be that I am trying to restore settings from a newer version to an older version?

    An obvious thing to try would be to upgrade to Evolution 2.32, but Evolution has a long list of dependencies so before jumping into that fun I thought I would ask if anyone else has had similar problems and found a straight-forward solution. I still have access to my emails in Fedora so this is not hugely pressing, and if upgrading to 11.4 will do the trick then I can just wait for that.

    Many thanks for any pointers anyone can offer.

    After some more rooting around I stumbled upon an obvious solution: update Gnome to 2.32. The Evolution restore worked without a hitch.
