Elyssa /etc folder gone!

Hey guys, i have been doing my PhD for the past few years so it has made sense for me to stick with Elyssa. Today i have had a major problem with my installation.

Re: Elyssa Crash

Just to update this thread.... my machine is still crashing! It is regular and annoying enough to really disrupt my work now. from what i have read this is a kernel problem or at least a wireless driver issue. I have found similar posts on ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-4...

Re: Evolution Syncevolution set up script

Never mind Husse,

the package has been updated with a readme that does tell you how to install. I already had all the dependencies so everything is fine.
the new readme is here http://launchpadlibrarian.net/15414099/README

Re: Evolution Syncevolution set up script

Husse......!!! This was just what i was looking for!

I don't mind a gui as then i don't have to worry about scheduling. I have downloaded the tarball, but i am a little stuck on how to install. I think i have covered all the dependencies.
How would you install this?

Thanks
