Do you also have a wireless card? If so, does evolution work if you are
connected through the wireless with internet? If so, does the
networkmanager manage both cards? Or just the wireless?

Good day,

Standalone laptop using debian squeeze freeze on a dsl modem connected
by cable.


All my internet applications work but evolution send/receive greyed out.

Today I configured evolution but no dice.
I use icedove but wanted to try evo.
On the evo list I found that evo needs some setting up in networkmanager.
Never done it before.

Some help would be appreciated

Thanks
Johan

This is another one of those annoying bugs related to network-manager.
Evolution online/offline with n-m only works if network-manager
controls *all* network devices. If there is an active network device
not controlled by n-m then it won't be known and will be marked as
offline to Evolution.

If you don't need network-manager, and if you are suffering from the
problem of n-m not managing your network devices then it would seem
that you would not need it, then you can restore Evolution's online
capability by removing the network-manager package. Then Evolution
won't think it is permanently offline.

A number of bugs have been filed on this topic and most of them merged
into this one:

If I start networkmanger the option for wireless pops up

What does that mean

Quick answer, edit the file /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
and change the line which says "managed=false" to "managed=true". You
will need to do this as root, then reboot afterwards.

See http://wiki.debian.org/NetworkManager

You were correct.

Thank you to all that responded

Thanks

you need a kind of network manager installed. I strugled with network
manager and replaced it in sqeeze/sid with wicd.

unfortunately the package in sid is not very stable. I'm not sure about
squeeze.
