How to get rid of evolution-data-server?


I would like to get rid of Evolution and Evolution-Data-server without having to delete some of its dependencies like Gnome Shell.

Is there a way to just disable all the evolution Notifications, Calender etc taking up resources in ram even though (minor).

As far as I know, evolution-data-server is integrated far too well in GNOME to remove without breaking GNOME shell. You can get rid of evolution and that should kill all the notifications. evolution-data-server should not give any notifications itself (as far as I know).

I havent had the time to deal with this but there might be a way to disable through systemctl. I listed the processes but didn't see them. I have gotten rid of evolution but the Evolution notifiers are still on when listing the processes. It doesn't take away a lot of resources but would be nice to get rid of them completely since i do most of my email through google chrome browser.

Please do post if you find some way to get rid of it without touching gnome-shell. It would be useful for me as well.

Not, I suspect, the answer you want, but I "solved" the "evolution problem" in the simplest way: just don't use GNOME, or GNOME-derived desktops.

Many -- in fact, almost all, I believe -- GNOME programs run quite well without gdm or evolution installed. In fact, here's what this old laptop shows:
Code:
$ sudo yum list installed evolution* gdm
Loaded plugins: dellsysid, fastestmirror, keys, langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit, remove-
              : with-leaves, rpm-warm-cache, upgrade-helper
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * fedora: mirror.uoregon.edu
 * rpmfusion-free: mirror.web-ster.com
 * rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.web-ster.com
 * rpmfusion-nonfree: mirror.web-ster.com
 * rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.web-ster.com
 * updates: mirrors.kernel.org
Installed Packages
evolution-data-server.i686                         3.6.2-3.fc18                          installed
But, as you see, I still need the evolution-data-server installed so I don't loose several useful GNOME programs.

Yup, you are very right. I tried the LXDE Spin of Fedora and the problem was gone. But later I realized a whole bunch of things stopped working on my laptop such as screen brightness control, 2 finger scrolling... etc. and i ran back to gnome. Lxde is a nice de but it definitely needs more work. Gnome is a whole lot more clunky but it is more functional for me. So that is why I have damned my self to gnome and all its unnecessary junk... Although I might try KDE as well but that is even clunkier with too much unnecessary tweaks. Not too happy with the Linux DE's but I see a future in LXDE.

If you don't mind LXDE, then you will probably love XFCE. I was heavy GNOME/Cinnamon user. But was curious about XFCE and tried it. It took me (for my workflow) a total 1-2 days to get used to XFCE and now, just after 3 weeks of XFCE, I find it hard to use Cinnamon!

XFCE is very modular as well. You install what you want and do not have junk hanging around (like evolution data server).
