Hello,

I'm experiencing unity freezes every time I click a contact in evolution. Everything else works just fine, I can read and write mails, edit the calendar but can't even view contacts. Evolution seems to crash and causes unity to freeze. After getting a terminal with CTRL+ALT+t and issuing a


unity --reset

unity works again but I have to kill evolution. Does anyone have an idea what's wrong? Here's the output of the "untiy --reset":

Ok, I've found out evolution causes metacity to freeze as well if I click any contact in the address book. After killing evolution everything works fine again. So there's actually two problems: 1) Why is evolution's address book not working for me? 2) Why can both metacity and unity freeze if an application is crashing?

I have a similar issue on two different laptops running 11.04 with the Unity desktop. The first is an HP netbook with a clean install. The second is my own laptop which is an Acer that I've been using Ubuntu as my only OS since 8.04. It was an upgrade from 10.10.

I do not have to do anything special on either machine to have Evolution crash my Unity desktop. On my own Acer laptop, I never even get to see the email program. The only things I can click on are the "File Edit View etc...." at the top when I hover my mouse. I then can go to File > Quit/Close to terminate the program. When the Evolution email program is in focus, it absolutely locks up the entire desktop and makes the pop out program menu on the left of the screen grind to a near halt.

It seems puzzling to me how a desktop change (one that I favor), can cause an email program not to function. This certainly needs to be resolved soon. Email communication is of top importance and I am dead in the water right now with exception to my phone which isn't too great for responding to many emails in a short and efficient amount of time.

I know I could be supplying more details of my install. I thought it was a fluke incident with the HP net book. Now that I know the issue is even worse on my computer, I would have to guess it isn't machine related so much as a bug in the software that has been introduced. Please let me know of any reports or other information that would be helpful to expedite the solution to this issue. I don't have constant access to the HP net book, only my own Acer laptop.

Here is a desktop video of the symptoms described above.

Thank you.

Hi Nausser,

so we're at least two guys having this problem. I'm running Ubuntu (64bit) on an Acer notebook, too. I'll file a bug report on evolution's project page as soon as I have some time available for that. I'll keep you posted!

Workaround is to refrain from running evolution until an update can be posted to make it compatible with Natty.

Hi, the only time I had a problem with crashing was when I upgraded, I had to do a fresh install, and right after I had to use the 173 nvidia driver for my graphics card not the current one. But it is working great, also you can not enable any effect in compiz when running unity, if you want compiz you need to log out and hit your user name and go to the bottom of the screen and click ubuntu classic and you can enable effects, I am running the cube and full effects in classic mode no problem at all.:D
