Evolution email notification not working

Postby acidtoy on Tue Oct 27, 2009 1:11 pm

Hi :)

Since Clem decided to fit Mint 7 with Thunderbird against Evolution -which I use in my dayly duties- I was forced to install it manually from the repos.
The problem is the notification applet don't recognize Evolution as installed and therefore I can't have it's functionality.

Any idea on how to make it work? I would really *hate* to change back to Ubuntu just to have Evolution working properly.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

There is sort of a solution here, in the first comment section: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/18802/
I believe the new version of Evolution does have an applet. Check their website....

PS: veiled threats to change OS's often mean your post will be ignored by many and quite a few here will not respond to your post. Just a suggestion for the future....

Agreed with the previous post. Also, have you ever tried Thunderbird? It's really superior in every aspect.

Antivirus or defragging?
