(SOLVED) evolution crashing on mail sent

Post by javierpuche » Sun Feb 05, 2017 2:28 pm


Just to notify that I was having some trouble with evolution crashing when sending emails (LMDE2 cinnamon) after activating in preference the 'automatic contacts' option (gather all sent emails' addresses in contacts) the error prior to the segfault was:

** (evolution:6483): WARNING **: bbdb: Failed to add new contact: (null)
evolution:8415 bbdb: Failed to get addressbook client : (null)

I solved it following these instructions: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1871193
Previously I tried installing bogofilter, bbdb, evolution-plugins, and some other packages that were not installed with the plain evolution package and I was having some warnings about them when launching evolution from the command line. I did also have to install the myspell/hunspell/aspell dictionary packages in order to have the grammar checking.

I am migrating fo Evolution from Thunderbird. I loved Thunderbird but last year is giving me and some other people I know lots of trouble wherever the linux distro :(
