Bug Description

Binary package hint: beagle-backend-evolution

beagle-backend-evolution does not find contacts in Evolution, if launch it from terminal:

@ubuntubox:~$ beagle-contactviewer
exec: 17: -a: not found

I can't reproduce this on edgy. Looking at beagle-contactviewer, it's is a simple shell script interpreted by /bin/sh. It may be that /bin/sh on your system points to a shell that isn't completely sh compliant (eg dash).

What do you get if you type:

ls -l /bin/sh

cheers,
Alex

Don't be sorry! :)

I'm curious though, was it a shell issue or something else?

For the record, I just want to correct my mistake:

dash is POSIX compliant, I am going to look at this script and see if there is a bashism in it or something
