Evolution Setup Assistant

Hi
I am trying to use the Evolution Calendar, without using Evolution for my Mail. Everytime I click on the Open Calendar on the top panel it invokes the Evolution Setup Assistant. Is there a means of disabling this setup assistant, as I prefer to use Thunderbird for my Email Client.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide...

Re: Evolution Setup Assistant

Hi
Is there another Calendar/Time App for Gnome 3 which could replace the Evolution Calendar and Date?

Re: Evolution Setup Assistant

I use Thunderbird with Lightning for calendar. Integrating thunderbird calendar with GNOME was possible. I am not sure about GNOME shell.

You can give this a try - http://dmtg.me.uk/2011/04/17/thunder...ar-in-gnome-3/

If you execute

Code:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.office.calendar exec thunderbird
You will be able to open thunderbird from the calendar (basically changing the default application). But it does not show appointments - for me at least.

Now that I think about it, I think, if you setup online accounts, you can use calendar from your online account - google for example. I have never tried this though and so I do not know if this is indeed the case.
