Remove evolution configuration settings

Posted by Treg in Linux, Tech

If you ever want to delete your entire Evolution account, history, configuration, settings, etc and start over from scratch, here’s how to do it:

Back up all of your files first (of course).
$ rm -rf ~/.evolution
$ rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/evolution
$ evolution --force-shutdown

Find the process id for ‘gconfd’ and kill it:
$ ps -ef | grep gconfd
$ kill <pid>

Restart Evolution and you should be prompted to set up your acccount.
