About me and hardware information

Postby flyhippo » Sun Jun 24, 2007 11:34 pm


Finally I found a linux OS that works!

Anyway I could not run about me and hardware information in systems - preferences.

about me show this error:
There was an error while trying to get the addressbook information.
Evolution Data Server can't handle the protocol.

and for hardware information it just load and then close again without showing any information.

Any suggestion/solution?

If you are running mint3 evolution is not installed, or at least not all of it.

you may need to install evolution to get about me to work.

thunderbird is now the default email client and may have to be setup to work with about me.

oh wait here is the fix, i think:
