Ubuntu :: Restoring Evolution From Backup - No Valid File Message

Jul 7, 2011

I've been using 11.04 Unity, & quite like it. I fired up Blender 2.49b the other day (not used it for a long time) & its behaviour was very erratic. Due to this I decided to reinstall 10.10 for the time being, until October or maybe even the 12.04 LTS. I backed everything up & reinstalled 10.10. I then tried to restore my Evolution from the Natty backup file, which simply didn't work. The message was something about it not being a valid file. I'm assuming this is a non backwards compatibility issue.

Any way getting Blender to work or restoring Evolution? With regard to Blender (in Natty); I've not tried proprietary drivers for my GPU yet as the open source defaults have always been fine, so that's an option. It means another reinstall (of Natty), but that really isn't such a big deal at this point. With regard to Evolution (in Maverick); I found a ppa but I'm unsure how to proceed once I've added it. Would I do an apt-get update & an apt-get install evolution?

OpenSUSE :: Restoring Evolution Settings Into Evolution 2.30

Feb 20, 2011

I have been using Fedora 14, which has Evolution 2.32.1 but have recently also installed openSUSE 11.3, which has Evolution I would like to make openSUSE my primary distribution, and so I would like to restore my Evolution settings from Fedora, but Evolution complains that the backup file is invalid. I have tried copying the folders in the backup to their appropriate locations in openSUSE with no luck. I have also tried manually copying with instructions for older versions of openSUSE, but with no luck.

An obvious guess at what might be the problem seems to be that I am trying to restore settings from a newer version to an older version? An obvious thing to try would be to upgrade to Evolution 2.32, but Evolution has a long list of dependencies so before jumping into that fun I thought I would ask if anyone else has had similar problems and found a straight-forward solution. I still have access to my emails in Fedora so this is not hugely pressing, and if upgrading to 11.4 will do the trick then I can just wait for that.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restoring Old Evolution Files?

Jul 2, 2010

In an attempt to restore my ubuntu 9.04 desktop to its original settings, I entered the following in Terminal: rm - rf .gconf. gconfd .gnome .gnome2 .terminacity

and then reset.

The new desktop is cleaner, but now Evolution Setup Assistant wants me to reinstall. I don't think I have an archive file, so should I use the Assistant to install? Will I lose my mail, calendar and tasks if I do?

What if I just install version 9.1? Will it install using my old evolution files?

Debian :: Restoring An Rsynced Backup?

Jan 23, 2010

the links are my stage of backing up my / and /home, both on different partitions.
short-sum up: with rsync, 2-weekly, manual on an external disk.


all my test restores in vbox worked fine. i may use the backup as a second OS, so it works. but there i first deleted the old OS and than ran cp -a /media/backup_partition /media/restore_parititon.

yesterday i ran into trouble and had to restore my system.
mount /dev/sda1 /media/restore
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/backup
rsync -auv /media/backup/ /media/restore

that did work, but not so good. dpkg-errors, all non-repo-apps, like opera and some old thrash, were a mess. i had to reinstall them with dpkg to delete them. besides that the system is up and running, but it was a lot of work.

General :: Restoring A Backup In A Different System?

Jan 21, 2010

im trying to clone my ubuntu system installed in a laptop in case the laptop crashes.

But, first of all: when i try to restore the system in a new PC, could be incompatibilities because the hardware of the broken laptop and the new laptop is different?

I dont mind if i have to buy another laptop with the same processor type (i386, etc), but, for example, the type of the RAM could be cause of problems?

Ubuntu :: Difficulty Restoring Home Folder From Backup

Oct 10, 2010

Before I reinstalled Ubuntu (this time allocating the entire disk to it as I never really used Windows any more) I backed up the entire contents of my /home folder using Deja Dup. Now that I am done reinstalling Ubuntu I am trying to restore the backup. However, when it actually begins restoring the backup, it says "Restore failed: failed with an unknown error".

Ubuntu :: Evolution 2.28 - Archiving And Backup

Jan 31, 2011

I want to create retrievable archives of a my old emails say monthly to avoid the old emails running me out of memory. If I use the 'Backup Settings' procedure as explained in Evolution Help what happens when I wish to consult the /home/dbus/evolution-backup.tar.gz archive file?

1- Will it simply over-write my current Evolution data? [in which case its not what I need]
2- If not, how do I return the archive file to dead storeage and resuscitate my current data?
3- If it will overwrite using the 'Restore Evolution' procedure given in Evolution Help is there a workaround ... perhaps by ...
3a- renaming the archive file,
3b- or 'restoring' it in another version of Evolution,
3c- or archiving CURRENT data as a 2nd backup with a different name [eg: /home/dbus/evolution-backupJan11.tar.gz?] then restoring that?
4- Will I be able to retrieve successive archives if I rename them, say '/home/dbus/evolution-backup.tarDec10.gz' etc once Evolution's saved them?

Alternatively the following came from a dead thread [from commonlyUNIQU3 ] ... is it still valid? does it avoid the problem of potentially running out of memory?
A. Make a subfolder to the "Inbox" under the "On This Computer" tree (I call mine "Archive")
B. Drag and drop the emails you want to archive into this folder.*

This will move the selected emails off of your Exchange server/account and into this folder (and into local storage) - unless you do a copy & paste instead of drag & drop. You may need to have the setting for downloading emails for offline access enabled for this to work as desired. If I recall, the new integrated backup feature creates a compressed (.zip) archive from which you can later restore the email (haven't tried that just yet).

Ubuntu :: Backup Evolution From Command Line?

Mar 11, 2011

Sadly I am unable to login to a particular user via the GUI, but that is another thread [URL].

I know that you can create a single backup file of all your emails and settings when you have access to the GUI in Evolution. Since I am unable to login to gnome (or KDE) but I am able to login to the command line by su to the user I would like to create a that evolution backup file. I will be reinstalling Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Evolution No Green Envelope After New Message

Oct 17, 2010

when they get a new message in Evolution the envelope on the top panel turns green but that's not the case with me. It doesn't work even if Evolution is running. However, I added Thunderbird to the indicator applet and it works fine but only when Thunderbird's running which is kinda pointless. Anyway, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 32bit and so far that's my only problem with it.I really want it to work with the indicator applet(not with mail-notification from the repos) and with Evolution 'cause that's my favorite mail-client.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Retrieve Message In Evolution?

Oct 15, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 (I think) using Evolution 2.28.3. When new messages come into the inbox, I get a message "Unable to retrieve message" in the lower screenI can work around it by clicking on the first folder under Inbox and then back to Inbox. When I click to the subfolder I have a message at the bottom that says "Error while Storing folder 'Inbox'".It would be nice if it simply worked the first time. It feels like it thinks there are two or more folders that might be "Inbox".

Ubuntu :: Evolution 'backup' Skipped All Saved Email

Dec 15, 2010

I recently reinstalled my computer with new hard drives and Ubuntu 10.10 (AMD64). Before the switch I used the 'Backup' function in Evolution to backup all my email and email settings -- I thought! The backup file was big (300 MB) so I didn't double-check how big it should have been.

After the reinstall I restored the backup and Evolution seemed to be working fine, i.e., I could see all the new email in my IMAP mailbox. Also, my local Contacts were all there, as expected. But eventually I tried locating an old email which I had saved to a sub-folder under the 'Local' Inbox and realized that there was nothing there! Fortunately I still had my old hard-drive and so I was able to recover the additional 400 MB of old emails. Shouldn't the 'Backup' function include the entire Evolution profile including any/all 'Local' settings?

Ubuntu :: Setting Evolution Message Filter For New Email?

May 21, 2010

I have had a search for this problem, but have not found a match: undoubtedly it is so straightforward that no-one has needed to ask it before: I have two accounts in Evolution, work and gmail. I would like my work email (which I check via IMAP) to be copied locally as it comes in so that I can file it properly, but also kept on the server so that I can access through my laptop.

I have set a message filter which does the following:
status is not read
set status read
copy to folder Inbox
Stop processing
The filter works (if I apply manually then it goes) AND I have set the preferences to apply filters automatically, but no joy when a new email arrives.

Ubuntu :: Evolution Alerts Fail To Change Message Notifier?

May 28, 2011

Upgraded to 11.04 a few weeks ago and after some tweaking found a way to adjust to the Unity shell. When I initially upgraded Im certain that when Evolution alerted me of an upcoming event, that the mail alert icon on the top panel would change to indicate the pending event. However, for the last few days Ive noticed that when Evolution alerts trigger I see the alert bubble, which quickly fades, but the mail alert icon does not change. If Im not right at my workstation when the alert triggers its easy to miss upcoming events. I googled around for a solution, but found nothing or missed it.

Fedora :: F15 And Evolution Message Read Timeout

Jun 9, 2011

I installed fresh installation of F15 and I've allways used Evolution as my mailclient. There was in older Evolution versions option "Mark message as read in X secs" I set that to zero to read emails smoothly, now I have to wait after every message that it's got "as read" and that's really annoying especially if it's automatically sent message from server that I don't really have to "check" it just click it to get it as read. I've been gone thru all the settings of current Evolution in F15 and haven't found anymore that option. Maybe there's conf file somewhere that I can put that? That "Help" page for Evolution is kinda outdated.

Debian :: Backup Purge Script - `/mnt/backup/subfolder': No Such File Or Directory

This script simply deletes files older than a certain age (in this case 7 days) from a certain location; I use it to purge old backups nightly, and it works as expected:

# delete backups older than 7 days

The problem is, every morning I get an email with an error message something like this:
