Hi Michael,

Thanks for the suggestion of gconf being the issue. You may well be right but I cannot yet see what to do about it.

It isn't in mine either.

I have backed up and deleted ~/.gconf/apps/evolution directory and tried Evo 2.2 with the same failure as before i.e.

[ian at amazon ~]$/opt/csw/bin/evolution
es menu class init
evolution-shell-Message: Killing old version of evolution-data-server...

(evolution:2116): e-error.c-WARNING **: No parent set, or default parent available for error dialog
[ian at amazon ~]$

The next thing I did was to log in as root, backup and delete the entire ~/.gconf from my home directory, log back in as me and retry Evo 2.2. Same as above.

Any suggestions as to what to try next?

I haven't yet played with /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps/evolution and subdirectories but could that affect this? If I get this wrong though I could render the whole system unusable.

The frustrating thing is I had Evo 2 running under Solaris 9. Now I'm stuck with 1.4.6.

Can anyone confirm they have Evo 2.2 running under Sun's Gnome 2.6 on Solaris 10?

All help appreciated.
