Integration of desktop with Evolution

Integration of desktop with Evolution

Postby jeffneedle » 07 Mar 2014, 00:48

Hi. Just installed Point Linux on my old Dell Dimension 3000 desktop. Amazing -- a Linux distro that just works! Yikes!!!! Thanks so much for this -- so appreciated.

A question: under older distros of Ubuntu, when Evolution was installed on your system, it automatically integrated with the time and date item on the panel. You could click on it, and see appointments from your Evolution calendar. This doesn't seem to work in Point Linux. Is there something I should be setting up, or is this perhaps a feature for a future release? I know Mate is trying to give us the Gnome 2 desktop experience, and it worked just fine under genuine Gnome 2. I wonder if this is something the Mate people have to work on.

Many thanks.

I'm re-posting this question. Is there any more thought to getting this done? And further, will the new Gnome desktop distro integrate the calendar with Evolution? Thanks.

I think we discussed the subject earlier. probable there is no way to install evolution due to mate vs gnome incompatibilities (?). evolution is part of gnome project, different DE. but you can try Point 3 gnome edition. I'm not sure of the result since evolution is based on gtk2 framework and classic mode on gtk3. but try and write here your experience. the safe way is to install using apt-get with s parameter first, namely
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install evolution -s

it would be interesting showing the result

(off-topic: at the moment I'm using debian lxde and trying to install evolution forces to install probable whole gnome desktop
Code: Select all
~$ sudo apt-get install evolution -s

)

on the other hand. what about thunderbird (native for Point)? generally it has similar functionality. you can also try web solutions. there are calendars attached to gmail and outlook accounts (and probable more). this solution is completely os independent.

Thanks. I haven't installed the Gnome edition yet -- it's still in development, and I don't have a spare machine to try it out. When I do, I'll report back.
