Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 830519
Cannot add account
Last modified: 2012-06-14 02:46:49 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Follow every step of the assistant to add an e-mail account.
Nothing is added. If you close it and launch it by terminal, you get these 2 messages for each previous attempt you did:
** (evolution:9669): WARNING **: Failed to add service: <account name>: unable to open database file
(evolution:9669): evolution-mail-CRITICAL **: auto_timeout: assertion `CAMEL_IS_SERVICE (service)' failed
New account should appear with the other ones.
I actually managed to add a Gmail account by activating it through gnome-online-accounts, but then it cannot fetch any of the folders. However I submitted that into a different bug (bug #830518).
Seems like it tries to add those accounts, because every time I open it, I get those 2 messages, each one indicating the name of one of those attempts (actually 5, including IMAP, IMAP+ and POP3 accounts).
I renamed ~/.config/evolution and ~/.local/share/evolution and restarted Evolution, but then it cannot open. It fails with this message:
(evolution:10010): e-utils-WARNING **: Lock file creation failed: Permiso denegado
** (evolution:10010): CRITICAL **: mail_session_add_local_store: Permiso denegado

Thanks for a bug report. There seem to be something broken in your setup, because I can add IMAP account into my evolution. Was this a clean install, or you updated from any older Fedora version to Fedora 17?
I updated from F16, but from CD installation, not from preupgrade.
How can I reset the setup? I ask because you see that deleting ~/.config/evolution and ~/.local/share/evolution does not work.
Updating with CD is OK, there only seem to be some issue with your home, with right in your current home folder (due to that "Permission deny" error).
Can you create
from a terminal? Like with 'mkdir -p ...' command.
To "reset the setup" you also want to delete account information, which is stored under GConf key /apps/evolution. I would use gconf-editor for that, but, if this is about user rights, then the "reset" will not help, especially because the On This Computer mail folder is not part of this setup.

OK, now you moved me in the right direction. There was a problem with my umask, and from there the permissions error.
It's solved (this and bug #830518), thanks and sorry for the inconveniences.
Good, thanks for the update. I'm closing this accordingly.
