Evolution, failure to open contacts: birthdays, etc

Post by stanstan » Fri Jun 15, 2018 4:34 am

Hi there,

I encountered a problem with Evolution, which did not occur before.

When I try to add an entry into the calendar, I get an error: failure to open contacts: birthdays, etc.

I have posted this question before, but I think under the wrong forum, so I post it again and this time hopefully under the right forum.

I have had some advices and tried them, but they had no effect, I am sorry to say.

This is what I have tried:

find $HOME ! -user $USER
sudo chown -R your-username:your-username /home/your-username

uninstall and install Evolution using mintinstall 7.7.5.

Some facts:
Evolution version is
Connected by pop3
Not syncing with Google.

I would be thankful for some advice.
