Trying to add alarms/events to an event, getting "unknown error"

Bug #253102 reported by paxitus on 2008-07-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
evolution-exchange (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

After creating an event and then opening the event again it seems I can't make changes to the event such as adding a reminder. When I do I get the "unknown error" message and then if I try to close it asks if I want to save changes or loose them when I click save, it gives me the same message. I can create all aspects of the appointment if I create a new one and add them from the start.

thank you for your bug report. do you get the issue every time? do you have anything in .xsession-errors about the issue? could you run evolution on a command line and see if any error is displayed there? could you also upgrade to the current hardy-updates evolution version and see if that's still an issue?

Same happened here when testing Evolution 2.24.1 on Ubuntu 8.10 connected to an MS Exchange 2003 server (via the OWA connector), already when trying to save a new event. German error message is "Unbekannter Fehler". I would criticise

- the occurence of this error and
- the very unprecise error message, which is not helpful at all.

the evolution-exchange task is enough
