I tried installing Ximian Evolution 1.4.5 in Mandrake 10.0, and worked fine first time. Created desktop shortcut and popup dialog appears 4 times with following message:
Cannot activate component OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponent :
The error from the activation system is:
Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL
Also, the resulting Evolution window is virtually unusable and garbled...
I googled this, and it appears that several people have encountered this with different flavours of Linux (in Red Hat a reboot seems to fix it).
Another odd thing is that if I run from within a bash shell, it works fine, but not if I run from 'run' dialog.!?
Any suggestions would be most welcome!!!!
