    e-addressbook-factory

    Hi

    I'm running Ubuntu 11.11 with Gnome3.

    I use now and again Thunderbird to backup my Gmail which I normally connect to via Chrome.

    I never use Evolution or UbuntuOne/Launchpad.

    But often I get this "e-addressbook-factory" running and it eat up my CPU. From what I understand it is linked to Evolution and not Thunderbird or any browser.

    A good old "killall -9 e-addressbook-factory" stops it, but after a while it is back up and running. I have tried once to remove Evolution which caused ubuntu to be unusable, since they are joined at the hip.

    Is there a way to stop e-addressbook-factory from ever starting, since it is getting rather annoying to kill it every time.

    Thanks

    I have run into the same problem here. I do use evolution, however, and I suspect it has something to do with LDAP? Just taking a wild guess...

    I'm running 12.04. Evolution has had memory leak for me back in 10.04. Will try to post more findings as they come.

    Re: e-addressbook-factory

    This is yet another reason why after years of using Ubuntu I have decided to stop using it and move to Debian. I hate that in Ubuntu there are many unnecessary and invasive processes inextricably tied into the OS in a very Microsoft/Apple way. I want to get rid of e-addressbook-factory, but apparently it's so deliberately tied into Ubuntu that you can't. (I also wanted to get rid of Zeitgeist and other programs - but they're so deliberately tied into Ubuntu that you can't. The list goes on. I've had enough of such silliness.)

    Linux should be about freedom - not being forced to run programs and processes regardless of whether they're any use or not. I sometimes wonder whether in recent years Microsoft has secretly funded some important people in Ubuntu development to deliberately ruin it. It's a great shame that Ubuntu has gone from almost universal approval to alienating a large number of its users.
