Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

Dist : Ubuntu 10.10 (beta)

- Uninstall Evolution from Ubuntu Software Store
- $ dpkg -l evolution
=> The package state is "rc".
- $ dpkg -L evolution
=> The file /etc/xdg/autostart/evolution-alarm-notify.desktop still exist
- $ dpkg -S /usr/lib/evolution/2.30/evolution-alarm-notify
=> libevolution provide the binary
- $ ps -ef | grep evolution

fabiena 1841 1 0 09:41 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/evolution/e-calendar-factory
fabiena 1851 1 0 09:41 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/evolution/e-addressbook-factory
fabiena 2777 3405 0 16:25 pts/0 00:00:00 grep evolution
=> Amazing

Expected result: when evolution is uninstalled, there neither should be any program directly related to evolution installed nor even running !

The trouble can be definitely fixed by purging 3 packages: $ sudo apt-get purge evolution libevolution evolution-data-server

I'm sorry but I can found bug related to the ability to uninstall evolution (like Bug #231208) but I didn't found any bug similar to this one so I decided to repport it. Can you help me finding the bug repport related to this issue ? Thanks by advance.

evolution-alarmd is still running (and using quite a lot of memory) on quantal which has thunderbird as default PIM suite. It cannot be removed, as several gnome packages still depend on evolution libraries.

summary: - evolution-alarm-notify still launch wheras Evolution was remove
+ evolution-alarm-notify still launched although Evolution not installed
