Evolution problems / solved

I have just installed Cassandra on a second hard disk with the intention of copying over my files. I am having difficulty in copying the address book and e-mails from the old drive. Can someone tell me where the evolution files are kept, or the best way to copy the files over. Thanks

Your right Husse, I don't have to know where the files are stored ! I asked because I wanted to know. As your signature says ' don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it ' I want to understand Linux and the best way to learn is to ask wouldn't you say !

I had a similar problem with Mint Cassandra. I could set the res to 1280 x 1024 in Nvidia settings but when I rebooted my res. returned to 1024 x 768. I had to edit xorg.conf and add 1280 x 1024 and save the file. Now when I reboot I get the res. that I wanted 1280 x 1024.

OK I have had some success with Envy. I have now got Nvidia settings in System tools but every time I close down my computer I loose the settings. Is there a way of changing the settings to boot up to 1280X1024. Thanks for your response guys. I have now sorted my graphic problem, I am quite new to L...

Which graphics card

I have upgraded my motherboard last week to an Asus M2N-MX with onboard 6100 graphics which I can't get to work properly.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a PCI-E graphic card that Linux Mint 3 picks up on install and just works.

cassandra wont boot

I have downloaded Cassandra two times now and both times the cd wont boot. The download completes and goes straight to extract, I extract to an empty folder then use K3B to burn the image. What am I doing wrong as I am stumped !

Bianca works exceptionally well for me. I like to play with my computer, always tweaking, upgrading hardware and software. I have a removable rack so that I can change hard drives, I install my OS often. I assume Cassandra will be slightly better at handling newer components (ie: 64bit ) than Bianca...

I will be upgrading to Cassandra when the final release erm.... is released ! Do you know if there will be a DVD version as I don't have any CDR's left. Thanks for your recommendation NiksaVel I am very happy with MInt, though I find the versions come a little to often for my liking.

Thanks for the CCL recommendation Nick but I prefer to buy my components local. I am in Aberdeen and I have a shop close to me that is excellent on swap-out of faulty goods. I pay a few quid more but I like the personal attention of my local trader. I have only bought on-line once, they sent me the ...

I have been looking at the Biostar NF61S Micro Socket AM2 / DDR2 800. It looks OK for the money ! Is it a reliable board ?

What I think I should do is try to install Bianca and see if it works and wait for the Cassandra final release. If it ain't broken then don't fix it !

Thanks for that Nick, is Cassandra worth upgrading to or would I be better waiting for the final release ?
