Unable to migrate data from Evolution 2.28.3 to Evolution 3.2.3-0ubuntu6


When I tried to migrate my data from Evolution 2.28.3 to Evolution 3.2 last year, I followed instructions that I had received for a previous migration in 2008:

******************************************************
A. In the old Evo, open a terminal and kill backend

sudo evolution --force-shutdown

and

sudo gconftool-2 --shutdown)

and then copy /home/kelly/.evolution and

/home/kelly/.gconf/apps/evolution

to a DVD

B. In the new system [before opening Evolution for the first time], move the existing /home/kelly/.evolution and the
/home/kelly/.gconf/apps/evolution folders to a Temp folder and replace
them with the above folders from the DVD.

C. Correct the permissions by running

sudo chmod -R ug+rw /home/kelly

and

sudo find /home/kelly -type d -exec chmod ug+x |{|} \;

[ or change |{|} to '{}' ?]

D. Open Evo 3.2 and follow the on-screen instructions.
*******************************************************

I tied these instructions and could not get them to work. In frustration, I gave up and started using Thunderbird (although I prefer Evolution).

Now, I'm embarking on a big project where I really need to get to the data that is in the Evolution files.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance. KJM

I have more or less same problem.
Trying to import may old evolution data in linux mint 15.
RANT
Can i just say WHAT A PIECE OF C**p THE Evolution documentation is.
It is great software that is often useless becuase there is no way to get support for it.
Who writes it ?
Are they on drugs or something ?
i have googled for about a week for answers and there is nothing there.
THIS IS TRUELY PATHETIC.
