Default change from 7.04 to 7.10 and evolution

This morning the task bar showed that some updates
were available and as a good user I clicked on the
icon and started the updates. Then I was notified
that a system upgrade was available, so what the
heck, let's do that too.

After completion I rebooted the system. When I
brought up Evolution again to get my email I got
an error message about the password not being
accepted, so typed it in again, and the error
message repeats. OK. I can get my mail OK
and send mail (since you are getting this).

But the consol window is continuously spitting out
the following error message:

(evolution:6987): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_window_get_origin: assertion
`GDK_IS_WINDOW (window)' failed
fff

and I get screen after screen of this garbage.

If I terminate evolution the noise quits.

uname -a shows

Linux kubuntu7 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Sun Oct 14 21:45:15 GMT 2007
x86_64 GNU/Linux


I'm going to work on this problem for a while, but asking here
at the start in hopes that some one in the group has an answer.
I may be the only individual in the universe with this problem.

This is a Compaq Presario SR1550NX with AMD 64 with 2GB of ram,
nvidia graphics 120GB hard drive.

I have another HP Slimline with 2GB of ram that I will take the
7.10 kubuntu distro disc and install and see what happens to
see if the problem replicates itself for evolution.


FYI

Chuck Adams

Since Evolution is a Gnome app, even though you're using Kubuntu, I'd
suggest you're more likely to find help on the ubuntu-users list. I doubt
many of us here are using evolution.

OK, I'll bite. What is the preferred mail utility for kubuntu?

Kmail - it is part of Kontact and you won't find it in the menues.

No idea what's _preferred_, but kmail comes as part of Kubuntu, and
integrates with kontact. evolution's from the Dark Side :-) Recent
discussion about mail programs here would show that a good number of users
are using Thunderbird, then of course there are always the primitives who
haven't left mutt (ooh, I'm going to get hurt for that...).

It's the one that works best for *you*.

In my case, it's Thunderbird. For others, KMail. etc etc etc.

Just because it's kubuntu, doesn't mean you *have* to use all the parts.
