Evolution Upgrade from 2.2.2 to 2.2.22
 
Hi,

I was using a very old version of Evolution for my email (2.2.2)

I've got a fresh new pc i'm wanting to use and i'm using Evolution 2.2.22 on it. I've got some issues in moving over all my emails, addressbook, etc to the newer version.

Previuosly i was just a case of moving the /root/.evolution folder to the new system. In 2.2.22 there is no /root/.evolution folder and i cannot find the correct place to dump the data. I have tried to make a tar backup of the folder and import this from 2.22's gui, but this had no effect.

Anybody have some suggestions. I've found numerous posts on how to do restores with 2.22 and pre 2.22 but none on restores between the two.

Thanks

Hi,

The ~/.evolution directory will not exist until you run evolution at least once. On a side note, it's not wise to be using 'root' as your regular login

cheers
