Ubuntu :: Emoathy Msn Contact List Is Empty

Aug 27, 2010

I've always used empathy as an MSN client and everything has always worked fine. Since a week ago (or something more) my on-line contact list has become empty, all of my contacts are marked as off-line. I checked at meboo and I had a lot of on-line contacts, so it must be an empathy issue. I wouldn't want to change messaging client, I like the way empathy integrates the gnome desktop.

Ubuntu :: Glabels Glitch - Can't Get To Merge The New Contact List

Nov 23, 2010

I'm running 10.10. I'm trying to generate a set of labels for a new contacts list in evolution. Problem is I can't get glabels to merge the new contact list, even though it is selected as default in evolution. When I select Objects, Merge properties, and format "data from default evolution addressbook", it always imports the contacts list which was the original default, even though I have changed the default. I have reinstalled glabels, but problem remains. Seems like a simple issue, but its driving me mad.

Debian Multimedia :: Restoring Contact List In Squeeze With KDE

Oct 18, 2010

I used Kubuntu with KDE 4.5.1 up to August, when I switched to Debian Squeeze with KDE (currently frozen at 4.4.5). Before migrating, I used rsync (luckbackup) to backup the whole Home directory. Kontact version used on Debian is now 4.4.6. While I could use the import feature successfully to retrieve all my e-mail messages by pointing it to ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail/, I couldn't find a way to do the same with contacts.

I don't have backups of my old ~/.local/share/contacts, the folder simply doesn't exist. However, I have ~/.local/share/akonadi. I never used Akonadi Tray Icon to create a backup. In KAddressBook, I have Personal Contacts, which is empty. While waiting for a solution, I filled Default Address Book with some contacts' e-mail addresses retrieved manually from archived past e-mails.

In ~/.kde/share/apps/kabc I have the following:

1) a folder named úlock, containing a text file named _home_lelamal_.kde_share_apps_kabc_std.vcf4g7TNh8g and another called _home_lelamal_.kde_share_apps_kabc_std.vcfXASyTlNE. If opened, they show 1372 kontact, and ú1629 korgac respectively.

2) A file named std.vcf of 0B size.

3) 8 files, numbered progressively, named "std.vcf__¶ std.vcf__7Ě, all of which are also of 0B size.

I tried renaming the old /kabc to /kabc.old (in case it got modified in the process) and used a copy of it as a target for Default Address Book in KDE Resources, whose path was changed to point to it. Nothing changed, when I reopened KaddressBook there were still only the new contacts I manually created.

Akonadi Configuration shows Personal Contacts, and it correctly points to ~/.local/share/contacts/, but if the folder isn't there I'm not sure what it's pointing to. I also have a Default Address Book, and when I click on Modify, instead of showing a path like Personal Contacts did, it shows a blank field. When I click on Open File Dialog, it expects me to point it to a vCard Address Book File.

If I'm back to KAddressBook, and open the Personal Contacts addressbook to import the the only vCard I am aware of (the 0B sized std.vcf file in /kabc) nothing happens, it remains empty.

Ubuntu :: Empathy Messenger - Contacts Management - Cannot Get The 'ungrouped' List Empty

Jan 8, 2011

I am using Empathy messenger 2.32.1 on Ubuntu 10.10. The issue I have is that try as I may, I cannot get the 'ungrouped' list empty i.e. there are always 6-7 contacts during every empathy login session that show up as 'ungrouped' even though I specifically grouped them into a user-defined group during the last empathy login session. For e.g. I login into gmail and facebook during session-A and classify all my 'ungrouped' contacts into relevant groups. I logout and log back in to session-B, and now I still see some of my grouped contacts go back into the 'ungrouped' pile.

Sometimes my user list is empty on start-up. When it happens the buttons beneath the empty list (shutdown, suspend and restart), are not responding. As a work-around I login to the first terminal as root to restart the machine and usually my normal user account appears back on the list. This morning the reboot work-around didn't work any more..

Ubuntu Networking :: Rpcinfo Can't Contact Portmapper

Jan 25, 2010

I've reported this as a bug (#507546), but it occurs to me that maybe others aren't having the same problems, so maybe it's an issue with the configuration of my machine. I upgraded to Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) from Jaunty. Ever since the upgrade, I'm getting a number of weird networking problems (though basic webbrowsing & email work fine):

1. I can't mount an NFS partition, one that has worked on this laptop with every previous version of Kubuntu, and one that still works on other computers. If I do

$ sudo mount /usr/lab

I get

mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.

So then I do this:

$ sudo start statd

and get this:

statd start/running, process 18709

Then this happens again:

$ sudo mount /usr/lab

mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking.
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.:


$ sudo start statd

start: Job is already running: statd

so then I do this:

$ rpcinfo -p

and it hangs for something pretty close to 3 minutes and then says this:

rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: RPC: Remote system error - Connection timed out

See also this:

$ ps ax | grep port
18017 ? Ss 0:00 portmap
18878 pts/27 R+ 0:00 grep port

Note that the 3-minute hang with rpcinfo -p also happens if I do not attempt to manually start statd first.

2. Whenever I try to print something from okular, the window freezes for about 3 minutes and then the print dialog comes up. The printers I want (network printers) are not shown in the list.

3. My department uses Retrospect (commercial closed-source software, sorry) for backups, and I haven't been backed up since I upgraded. The problem, again, is that when I try to start the backup client it hangs for about 3 minutes but then fails to come up.

4. And some new information not in my bug report: I've noticed that certain (but not all) OOo Impress presentations cause Impress to freeze for about, you guessed it, 3 minutes before the window opens. I just copied one of the troublesome presentations over to another Kubuntu Karmic machine, and it opens fine there. I believe that machine can also mount NFS partitions without trouble. it smells like some pervasive networking/communications problem specific to the configuration of my own laptop. But, I don't really know where to start. This has never been a problem before, and I don't think my networking setup is extensively tweaked

Software :: New Wget Run Will Contact DNS Again?

Jun 28, 2011

If I have an address, say [URL], and I want to run n number of wgets on it. How can I do this? I'm curious for the reason of checking how wgets caches DNS. Turn off caching of DNS lookups. Normally, Wget remembers the IP addresses it looked up from DNS so it doesn't have to repeatedly contact the DNS server for the same (typically small) set of hosts it retrieves from. This cache exists in memory only; a new Wget run will contact DNS again.

The last part confuses me. "a new Wget run will contact DNS again." This means if I run a for-loop to call wget on an address, it will just make a new call to DNS every time. How do I avoid this?

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 LTS - PHP5 Email Contact Form

Nov 24, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04LTS on a server. I am trying to make an e-mail contact form. When I hit submit, it says the message was sent. I check my e-mail and I don't see it. Does it not work with gmail? or do I need to use a system username@mydomain.net? This is the PHP mailer.

if(isset($_POST['submit'])) {
$to = "myemail@mydomain"; #This is set to my gmail.com e-mail.
$subject = "Unserv Form";
$name_field = $_POST['name'];
$email_field = $_POST['email'];
$message = $_POST['message'];

$body = "From: $name_field
E-Mail: $email_field

echo "Message was sent!";
mail($to, $subject, $body);
} else {
echo "Error, it did not work! Please mention this to admin@unserv.net!";
} ?>

This is a snip of HTML from the contact site:
<form method="POST" action="sndmsg.php">
Name: <input type="text" name="name" size="19"><br>
E-Mail: <input type="text" name="email" size="19"><br>
Message:<br><textarea rows="20" name="message" cols="50">

Ubuntu :: No Longer Launch An Email To A Contact From Gnome-do

Dec 2, 2010

I can no longer launch an email to a contact from gnome-do. I select a contact (using Gmail Contacts plugin) in the first pane, "Email" in the second pane, hit return and get nothing. I use Evolution as my email client because I like the tight integration with the gnome desktop. Previously, in Lucid 10.04 if I'm remembering correctly, this action in Gnome-Do would launch an Evolution email window with the To: field already populated. I'm running 32-bit 10.10 Maverick. Evidently there was a similar bug for Thunderbird that has been fixed. [URL] And something similar when using chrome as preferred email client: [URL]

Fedora :: Evolution F14: No Contact To Server?

Nov 10, 2010

I am behind a funny firewall, so that may have something to do with this, but since the problem materialized upon update to F14, I am assuming that this has something to do with it as well. (Both connections are on the internal network, so should not invoke the firewall/proxy, so the firewall issue is probably a red herring.)Since the update, neither evolution-mapi nor evolution-exchange (over OWA) are able to access my email. Here is the error given when using evolution-mapi:

Unable to authenticate to Exchange MAPI server: file exchange-mapi-connection.c: line 359 (exchange_mapi_connection_new): assertion `profile != NULL' failed Please enter the MAPI
